Multiple teams appear willing to trade out of top 10, which could be good for Patriots


The NFL Draft is almost a week away and there's quite a bit of intrigue with what will happen at the top, especially in the top 10 relating to quarterbacks.

The Patriots pick at No. 15 overall, but there's been a lot of speculation they could look to trade into the top 10 to select a quarterback.

If that is the case, there may be a few teams that would be willing to move back.

According to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer, the Falcons at No. 4 overall and Lions at No. 7 overall are open to dealing down, as well as the Panthers at No. 8 overall. Then the Broncos at No. 9 have explored moving up or down.

Relating to the Patriots, Atlanta at No. 4 may be too high for them to go as that would cost multiple first-round picks in the coming years. It's likely at No. 8 or 9, that would not cost them a future first-rounder as that team would only be moving back a few spots.

The Patriots have certainly done their homework on the top quarterbacks in the draft, now we'll see how much they liked them.
