Predicting a Trade: Rams trade TE Gerald Everett to the Patriots for a 5th round pick

Gerald Everett to Patriots
Predicting a trade is fun, but this trade makes a ton of sense. Imagine if the Patriots sent a mid-round pick to the Rams for TE Gerald Everett?

Gerald Everett could be a star in the NFL, many think David Njoku or Cameron Brate could be on the block, they may but the Rams TE Everett is a much better player in my opinion.

The South Alabama product is a 6030, 240 pound pass catcher that can exploit a defense. The Patriots tight ends are suspect and Bill Belichick loves to have a good tight end. By adding Everett the team finds a good and young prospect to help Cam Newton evolve.

The 26 year old has 97 career receptions and 1140 yards to add on 7 touchdowns. He has zero touchdowns this year though. The Rams seem to utilize Tyler Higbee more, and the Patriots could use him. This year in six games Everett has 11 receptions for 168 yards.

Patriots starting tight end Ryan Izzo has 6 receptions for 82 yards and a fumble. Zero touchdowns at this time. The Patriots could use a speedy Everett in the middle of the field. Izzo is the only tight end on the roster that has a reception, and he is not a mismatch.

Adding a speedy tight end like Everett causes a mismatch for linebackers covering. This move makes too much sense and it is a reasonable deal. Everett was a 2nd round draft pick in 2017, but the Rams trade him for a late rounder.
