The best time of the year is almost here for football fans. Yup, we're talking about the NFL Draft, where the best college players will be ready to hear their names called. With that said, there's always plenty of drama in the draft.

Could Bill Belichick be ready to steal the show? According to ESPN insider Mel Kiper, the Pats could trade up in the first round to select star Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields. This would seriously be something.

With Tom Brady off in Tampa Bay winning Super Bowls with the Bucs, New England needs a QB of the future. Enter Fields? Cam Newton is the projected starter in 2021, but the team could take Fields and then have Newton mentor him. That'd be a win-win for everyone involved.

Come NFL Draft night, all eyes will be on Belichick to see if he makes a move to land Fields. It'd sure steal plenty of headlines.
