Patriots Draft Picks 2012: First Round Results And Upcoming Picks

Well, what do you think? Bill Belichick and his New England Patriots did something quite unusual on day one of the 2012 NFL Draft on Thursday night -- they traded up twice. The end result? Chandler Jones at No. 21 overall and Dont'a Hightower at No. 25 overall. Not bad, not bad at all. Here's where we stand right now on the Patriots' draft situation.
