Don't count on Pats in top 10, Belichick says

Posted by ESPN's Wendi Nix

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The chances of the Patriots moving into the top 10 in this draft are "less than zero." That's what Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said shortly before the start of Saturday's draft.

The team has received inquiries about its pick at No. 23 and is open to trading down, but in all likelihood the Patriots will sit tight, pick first at No. 23 and opt for help on the offensive line.
