With only 10 days to go until the NFL’s 2021 draft, the New England Patriots remain one of the hardest teams to project. Sitting at No. overall, they could go in all directions both in terms of trade options and positions.
The NFL Draft always brings with it a flurry of trades with teams negotiating their way around the board to find their guys and get the best value they can. For a team like the Houston Texans, given they have no picks in the first two rounds and multiple positions of need it seems logical to suggest they may look to move back and acquire more picks come the draft, as suggested by John McClain in a recent article.
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman announced his retirement last week after playing 12 seasons in the league. The story of how Edelman landed with the Patriots in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft out of Kent State is certainly an interesting one, as told by Mike Reiss of ESPN. Edelman was a quarterback at Kent State, where he played for three seasons from 2006 to 2008.
