Do we trade down with NE?

The only reason I see New England wanting to trade with us is a QB falls that Belichick sees as Brady’s replacement. It would cost NE their first , 2 seconds and our original 3rd for it to work on the trade chart. I would also take the 32nd, our original 3rd and their next year’s 1st. This is all predicated on no top 4 def player falls to us. I think the second scenario would be more palatable for the Patriots. If the second scenario did happen then all of us would be rooting for age and injury to hit Brady so their 2020 pick would be higher than 30-32. Dream a little dream with me:)

Yes in the third round, we’ll move back from 88 to 96.
