Christian Barmore - Defensive Tackle

Before you start telling me I don't know anything, let me quickly remind you that Coach Belichick has traded players to division rivals before. Remember Drew Bledsoe? I know it's a different situation this time around, but the Patriots might be in the mood to trade what few good players they have, in hopes of getting higher in the first round to select one of the incoming rookie quarterbacks in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Pro Football Focus graded Barmore a 77.0 in pass-rushing this season and he has 16 total pressures. This includes two sacks, but he also has ten stops on the year. With DaQuan Jones out, likely for the season, and Ed Oliver getting banged up, it didn't look good without them this past Sunday. The Bills could use an upgrade there.
