Let the trade speculation begin.
According to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe the Patriots have talked with the Cleveland Browns to trade up to the No. 6 spot.
The Patriots definitely have the ammo, with two picks in the first, second and third rounds. Although in the past New England has notoriously been known to trade down, we can’t rule out the possibility of the Patriots trading up.
At No. 6 New England, could target North Carolina OLB Robert Quinn, wide receiver A.J. Green or CB Patrick Peterson. To pull off a trade of this magnitude the Patriots would have to part ways with both of their 2011 first rounders and perhaps a third round selection as well.
Again, this seems unlikely, but it’s worth noting.
