It was another busy night for the New England Patriots on the second night of the draft. We saw them make a few trades again and oh yeah, they even made a few draft picks.

New England PatriotsThe Patriots first draft pick was supposed to be 12th pick in the 3rd round (44th overall) but a trade with the Oakland Raiders moved them up two spots to No. 42. With that picks, the Patriots selected tight end Rob Gronkowski out of Arizona.

In order to get Gronkowski, the Patriots gave up their 2nd round pick at No. 44 along with a 6th round pick (190th overall).

They were scheduled to make the 47th overall pick but once again they made another trade, sending the pick to the Arizona Cardinals. They got two picks back, a 2nd rounder (58th overall) and a 3rd rounder (89th overall).

When the Patriots went on the clock with the No. 53 pick, they didn’t make a trade. Instead they chose defensive end Jermaine Cunningham out of the University of Florida.

With the trade from the Cardinals giving them the No. 58 pick, when it came time to pick someone, they made yet another trade. This time they moved the No. 58 pick to the Houston Texans for the No. 62 pick (2nd round) and a 5th rounder (150th overall).

The Patriots used that No. 62 pick from the Texans to take linebacker Brandon Spikes from Florida.

When it came time for the Patriots to make their first selection in the third round, pick No. 89, they once again made a trade. This trade was with the Carolina Panthers. In return, the Pats got a second round pick in 2011.

They finally made a pick in the third round at No. 90, a pick acquired last night from the Dallas Cowboys, to take wide receiver Taylor Price out of Ohio University.

The Patriots will have eight picks on the final day of the draft (Rds 4-7).

Barring any trades, they’ll have one in the 4th round (No. 113), one in the 5th round (No. 150), one in the 6th round (No. 205) and five picks in the 7th round (Nos. 229, 231, 247, 248, 250).
