The Patriots have three picks in the first 33 slots of this year's draft, but it is not expected they will stand pat there.
"This has been our strategy for the past few years," said head coach Bill Belichick. "We don't see the value in getting a few players with elite talent. Instead, we build depth that delivers outstanding regular season after outstanding regular season."
And New England front office staffers say all the work in recent drafts has set the stage for what they believe will be the master stroke in this year's draft: compiling almost every pick in the 7th, and final, round.
"There's not a lot of difference makers in the 7th Round, but we will have a monopoly on the scrappiest, hardest working, scrappy, scrappers available. And that's Patriots football," said team owner Robert Kraft. "Let the stars go to the other teams. We'll take gutting out a crucial 3rd-and-8 in October, thanks."

The New England Patriots star admitted today that his overtly feminine behavior in recent years, behavior that has intensified in the past few weeks, has just been an elaborate ruse intended to show "the discordant link between celebrity perception and reality in our culture."
"I'm not really this soft and lady-like," said Brady, grabbing at the long, flowing hair framing his face. "I don't really want to look like this. I mean, come on. I don't really start crying when I talk about the NFL Draft. I don't really wear pigtails. I don't really wear Uggs. I don't dance by myself to Samba music. I don't have my wife feed me grapes poolside. I don't I can't even remember everything I've done anymore. There's been so much and it's gone on for so long."
Brady says he began his experiment after his breakup with former girlfriend Bridget Moynahan.
"I felt the media didn't cover that fairly, that I was painted as the bad guy, so I decided to mess with them," says Brady, "by experimenting with my appearance and behavior."
While Brady v. NFL seeks to force the NFL owners to offer the players a better deal under antitrust grounds, in Brady v. Pantene the Patriots quarterback seeks $1 billion for his "split ends and pain and suffering because I couldn't get my hair to lay right on Sunday and I had to put it in a scrunchie to go to the opera! It was very embarrassing."
Pantene is claiming that $1 billion is an exorbitant figure for one bad hair day, no matter the obvious emotional scarring it caused. The shampoo brand also said that its products are designed to clean and protect "natural human head hair and not what is clearly the scalp of an aging men desperately trying to cling to his youth via hair plugs and non-age appropriate styles."
Due to Pantene's claims, Brady then sued for an additional $1 billion "for further emotional pain and suffering over their hurtful comments about my hair."
I'm starting to think we're being duped. He's not just a good quarterback, he's a great avant garde comic.
