The Patriots can draft Tom Brady’s successor. Just don’t expect them to trade up to the top 5.

The New England Patriots are officially loaded in the 2018 NFL Draft after dealing Brandin Cooks to the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday. By trading the receiver, the Patriots now have two first-round picks and two second-round picks, joining the Browns and Bills as the only teams with multiple picks in the first two rounds.

But unlike the Browns and Bills, the Patriots don’t need to use those picks for a major roster overhaul. New England — like always — is already a contender.

The team still has its fair share of needs. The Patriots could use additional help in the secondary, more pass protection for Tom Brady, and a deep threat to replace Cooks. But what’s likely top priority is identifying a quarterback who can eventually take over for Brady.

Now the Patriots have the chips to go all in. But even after acquiring a first-round pick it will be difficult to nab one of the top quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The Patriots need a sense of urgency in the hunt for a QB

Tom Brady was the MVP of the 2017 season with a league-leading 4,577 passing yards to go with 32 touchdowns and eight interceptions. His passer rating topped 100 for the sixth time in his career.
