The New England Patriots' PR campaign following Tom Brady's decision to move on to Tampa Bay was that they're all in on Jarrett Stidham. Yet, if you listen closely, you can hear some uncertainty about the Auburn product coming out of Foxborough. With that in mind, the Pats are reportedly VERY sold on Herbert, per the latest buzz.
A Bill Belichick-Matt Patricia trade for the right to select Herbert makes a ton of sense, but it'll be tough to complete for the Patriots. New England's first pick comes up at No. 23, and trading up 20 spots takes a lot of ammo.
Detroit does have a lot of roster holes to fill, and could use all the draft capital they can get in what's expected to be a loaded class at several positions of need for the Lions. Such a trade would cost New England their 2020 No. 23 selection as well as their 2021 first-round pick, for starters.
