NFL Draft Trade: Patriots, Saints Put Together Mark Ingram Swap

The New England Patriots are at it again, trading down and collecting future picks from a team looking to move up and grab a star. The New Orleans Patriots grabbed Alabama Crimson Tide RB Mark Ingram with the No. 28 pick, giving up their 2011 No. 56 pick and their 2012 first-rounder.

Hold on to something, because here's the list of picks the Pats are working with for tomorrow alone: Nos. 33, 56, 60, 74, and 94. The Saints have only four picks remaining for the entire draft -- with two of those in the seventh round -- but New England also has three for Saturday. And they've already drafted a potential starter in Nate Solder.
