Agent: Patriots Might Have Traded up to Take Baker Mayfield at No. 2

Former Oklahoma, and now Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield’s agent said that the New England Patriots were considering trading up to the No. 2 slot to draft the Heisman Trophy winner.

Mayfield’s agent, Jack Mills said on Andrew Brandt’s “Business of Sports” podcast that New England could have traded with the New York Giants for the pick.

“We had another team which is going to surprise you. Another team had said, ‘You may get a big surprise on draft day, at No. 2, if he’s available.’ And it was the Patriots,” Mills said. “They had 23 and they had 31 and they had two seconds. We thought, ‘That’s gonna be a heck of a move, to get up that high from where they are.’ And of course he wasn’t available so we never knew if that was reality or not.”

Mills was asked on the podcast if they expected to hear from the Jets, who had the third pick.

“We knew that was the bottom line. We had another team, which is going to surprise you. Another team had said ‘you may get a big surprise on draft day at number two if he is available,'” he said. “And that team was the Patriots.”

The Jets chose USC quarterback Sam Darnold.

The Patriots stayed pat and used their first–round selections on Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, with the 23rd pick and his college teammate, running back Sony Michel at pick No. 31.
