Patriots considered trading up to draft Baker Mayfield

PASADENA CA- JANUARY 01 Roquan Smith #3 of the Georgia Bulldogs attempts the sack on Baker Mayfield #6 of the Oklahoma Sooners in the 2018 College Football Playoff Semifinal Game at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual at the Rose Bowl

Jack Mills, Mayfield's agent, joined the Business of Sports podcast and revealed that the Patriots had informed Mayfield's camp that they might trade into the No. 2 spot if Mayfield was available.

"We had another team which is going to surprise you".

The Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots selected running backs, surprising many; other than Barkley, no running back was projected in the first round. That would raise the question as to why the Patriots would be looking at quarterbacks in the draft.

Reports are saying that the New England Patriots mulled trading up to the number two spot to draft Mayfield if the Browns had chosen to go in a different direction. Who knows if the New York Jets would have picked Mayfield instead of USC quarterback Sam Darnold. "They had 23, and they had 31, [they had] two seconds".

According to Mills, Mayfield told him that he believed the Jets wanted to draft him.

Kim, leading to peace between the two Korean leaders, it would be hard to argue against both deserving a Nobel Peace Prize . He then shook hands with Moon, which was the first-ever meeting between them after the Korean War ended in 1953.

"They didn't say, 'You're our guy.' They liked him and [Browns general manager John] Dorsey never contacted us, and we've known John for a long time", Mills said. We thought, boy, that's going to be a heck of a move to get up that high from where they are. If Mills' story is true, the Patriots join the Los Angeles Rams, New York Jets, and obviously, the Browns as teams to have made comments suggesting Mayfield was their top-ranked quarterback in this year's draft. According to Mills, the Patriots might have been the team making that offer. However, if they didn't take him there, they might have missed out on picking him altogether.

That's where things could have gotten interesting and the Giants could have traded out of the pick.

Certainly this adds a bit of fuel to a fire that will burn much brighter in almost a year when the National Football League waits to see what the Patriots will do for their long-term QB needs in next year's draft.

Highsmith spent a lot of time leading up to the draft studying all the available QBs in the 2018 class.

If the Patriots really wanted to come away with Brady's potential successor in this draft they could have acquired a similar prospect at a much lower price.
