Peter King of Sports Illustrated dedicated much of his weekly Monday Morning Quarterback column today to the 2011 NFL Draft.
It's full of solid tidbits, but none juicier than a trade item. King reports that a deal could be in place with a team offering their second-round pick and a first in 2012 to jump back into the first round this year for a quarterback.
The Patriots are almost sure to add picks in the 2012 draft because they currently only have five selections next year.
But if you're the team trading back into round one, how much better in 2011 does one of those quarterbacks make your team? That's something I thought about further here.
Other notes from King:
- King compares Andy Dalton to Drew Brees. Do you see that comparison? King also defends his love of Dalton and the redhead quarterback meme that launched last week.
