NFL Draft

Five players not named Aaron Rodgers that could be traded this weekend

Drew Lock Broncos
Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock was expected to be the franchise quarterback, but his team is trying to trade him after a short stint.

The NFL Draft begins tonight and there are tons of rumors that the Green Bay Packers could end up trading Aaron Rodgers. I do not believe that for one bit, but I do think he is upset. I think they will get a deal done for him, and they should absolutely sign him to a long term deal. I mean maybe we will see a blockbuster, but this week I think we could see five other players that get dealt. Let’s check them out!

Drew Lock, QB, Denver Broncos – I think the Broncos are going to move Drew Lock in this draft. I am not sure what team is going to be looking, but if I am a team like the Washington Football Team I am calling about Lock. I feel he would be a great fit in Washington and could likely be had for 4th round pick. If the Broncos pick a quarterback, like I think, he will be dealt.

Zach Ertz, TE, Philadelphia Eagles – Ertz getting traded makes way too much sense. The Eagles aging tight end could use a change of scenery. I think the Seahawks are a team that calls and makes a move for the veteran pass catcher. The Seahawks do not value draft picks like many other teams and I feel getting Russell Wilson some help will keep him happy.

Gardner Minshew, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars – While the Jaguars should keep Minshew Mania on the team, I feel they will trade him. The team I see going after Minshew is the Patriots. I think the Patriots would be crazy not to trade a pick for him. Minshew is a player that can come in and learn the system under Cam Newton. I think he would be a better fit than Jimmy Garoppolo.

Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, San Francisco 49ers – The 49ers are going to take a quarterback, and I would not be shocked to see a team like the Buccaneers swing a deal for him. I mean the Buccaneers quarterback is not going to play forever. They are repped by the same agent and he has sat behind him once before. This move makes a ton of sense.

Stephon Gilmore, DB, New England Patriots – Patriots use Stephen Gilmore as a chip to move up into the draft. I could see a team like the Panthers landing him. The Panthers get Stephon Gilmore and a first in the 2022 NFL Draft to have the Patriots come up to 8 so they can select a quarterback? I mean it could happen….
