Fitzgerald and the Patriots


I was reading the Bill Simmons/Sports Guy's chat wrap up on ESPN today and he made an interesting point.  Don't question why I keep reading Simmons when he's gone way down hill, but check this out:

Specifically let me paste this:

"Tom Brady (California)

 


I want Larry Fitzgerald next year. Or Vincent Jackson. Or one guy over 5 foot 10.

Bill Simmons   (3:19 PM)

The Fitzgerald option is pretty tantalizing. The Pats are going to have the No. 17, No. 28 and No. 33 picks and No. 56 picks (I think that's right). Would you trade No. 17 and No. 33 for Fitzgerald? Wouldn't you have to think about it? How many years in a row can they keep just stockpiling these picks? Brady is going to be 34 next season. Aaaaaaaargh. Now I'm getting agitated again."

 

Thinking about where the Cards are drafting, what their needs are, etc., would you entertain this?  The Cards #5 overall pick could be either AJ Green or Julio Jones, and then you can get an offensive tackle and a pass rusher at the other two spots.

Please keep in mind that I'm not saying let's do this, I just find it interesting and would be curious as of people's take on this.
