The New England Patriots currently do not have a pick in the first two rounds of the upcoming NFL Draft, but the way they are preparing has led many to believe a significant trade is coming within the next week.

Bill Belichick has always strived to prepare for every possible situation both on and off the field. But there’s a difference between extensive preparation and wasting time. On Thursday, the Patriots held a private workout with former UConn defensive back Obi Melifonwu. After he blew scouts away at the NFL Combine last month, Melifonwu is expected to be drafted somewhere in the late-first or early-second round.

At the moment, New England doesn’t have a pick until the third round (72nd overall). Teams are only allowed to hold private visits with 30 players before the draft, and the Patriots have hosted top talents like Melifonwu, Florida defensive back Teez Tarbor and Wisconsin offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk.
