The Eagles, potential sellers at 15, could find buyers in the Patriots or Steelers.

The once-mighty New England Patriots are now in some unfamiliar territory, being the second-best football team in their division. They seem to have found their quarterback in Mac Jones… maybe. The Pittsburgh Steelers, on the other hand, need to find their franchise signal-caller after their most recent has called it a career.

Don’t be shocked if both teams are looking to aggressively climb the draft board to put themselves into a position to find difference-makers.

The Pats have added DeVante Parker, but the second-best wide receiver on their depth chart is former Eagle Nelson Agholor. That isn’t ideal, nor is walking into battle versus the high-powered Buffalo Bills twice annually with aging Malcolm Butler and Jalen Mills on the outside.

The Pats, suddenly in need of playmakers on both sides of the ball, may want to move up. and they could be willing to give up the 21st and 54th-overall selection in Round 2 to do so. Bill Belichick values draft choices about as much as Howie does.

Occasionally, we’ve heard that there’s interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers in quarterback Malik Willis. Their fear of the Saints having a potentially similar interest could influence their decision to leap ahead of New Orleans who now have selections at 16 and 19 and may not see Jameis Winston as the long-term answer.

Philly would be wise to ask for additional draft capital. The Steelers’ second-round selection seems like a fair deal.
