Here's the first of what we hope become a regular feature on Boston.com -- videos in which our reporters and columnists discuss the hot topics of the day with a host from CineSport, a company that provides sports video. Christopher L. Gasper and Noah Coslov talked about three big story lines -- the Red Sox' injuries, the Celtics' interest in Shaq and the Ray Allen situation, which unfolded later Wednesday after this video was recorded.

The word

Christopher L. Gasper riffs on the news

Dearth

...That's what the Patriots have when it comes to picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, which starts Thursday. After all those years of stockpiling picks the way a survivalist does non-perishables the Patriots have just five picks in this year's draft, thanks to Band-aid trades for Albert Haynesworth, Chad Ochocinco and Aqib Talib. Five picks would be the fewest draft picks in franchise history. (Part of that is attributable to the trimming of the draft to just seven rounds in 1994). Further complicating matters is that two of the Patriots' greatest needs are at wide receiver and cornerback, positions where they have sustained draft droughts. With that in mind, I'm convinced the Patriots are going trade back out of the first round of a quanity-over-quality draft where you're just as likely to pick a Pro Bowl player in the second and third round as you are in the first round.
