In his "Monday Morning Quarterback" piece on SI.com, Peter King asks the question, "Could the San Francisco 49ers be turning into the New England Patriots West?" King then explains why the question is being asked, as the 49ers have a league-high 11 picks in the 2013 draft (King projects 3 additional compensatory picks to be added to up the total to 14).

This is the type of draft capital that the Patriots usually have, although this year is different in New England with the team entering the draft with just five selections (the possibility of compensatory picks, likely to announced in March, could increase the total).

With this in mind, here is a look at each team in the NFL and the number of draft picks they currently own, highlighting how the Patriots rank close to the bottom:
