It's March, and while we haven't quite hit free agency yet, it's time to introduce some mock trades into my mock drafts. With how good this quarterback class is, there are bound to be some trades into the top half of the first round on draft night. 

Here's a look at the trades:

  • Deshaun Watson is dealt to the Panthers for three first-round picks in each of the next three drafts, starting with 2021.
  • The Broncos move up to No. 3 in a trade with the Dolphins, who get Denver's No. 9 pick as well as a 2021 third-round pick and 2022 first-round pick.
  • The Patriots and Titans swap the No. 15 and No. 22 picks, with the Pats getting multiple Day Two picks as compensation.

The draft order is now locked in.

Washington
