The only non-QB who’s worth a top-5 pick imo is the LT from Oregon, who is supposedly a generational talent. Wouldn’t be surprised if there are multiple teams looking to trade down, which might make the price more reasonable.It doesn’t seem impossible, just highly unlikely.
Would need the Jets to pass on a QB at 2. If they take Sewell or Parsons, ATL, DET, CAR, DEN are all teams that could go QB currently in front of them.
They would likely need to get into the top 5 to secure Fields or Wilson, if the Jets pass on a QB. If they don’t, they would probably need to move up to 3 or 4.
I agree, though, that it will be hard for the Pats to trade into the top 5. If I’m the Dolphins, Falcons, or Bengals, I’d value a package built around this year’s and next year’s 1st rounders from Carolina, Denver, or Detroit much more highly than I’d value a comparable package from New England.
The good news for the Pats is there doesn’t seem to be a consensus 2nd-best QB after Lawrence; if BB happens to prefer Lance or Jones, he might be able to stay put or move up just a few spots to get his guy.
