Day two of the 2018 NFL draft is underway and the New England Patriots have made their first trade and moved pick number #43 to the Detroit Lions.

Patriots get: #51 + #117

Lions get: #43

Analysis: The trading makes plenty of sense for the Patriots considering how the board has been falling. By moving down eight spots, the team picks up an additional mid-round selection while talented options on both sides of the football are still available.
