Stop the madness! Eagles and Patriots swap 7th round picks. Philly takes OT Mailata, Pats nab Izzo. Seriously.

< Trade #18.34: LAR & WAS All 2018 Trades >

Eagles left with
No. 233 – OT Jordan Mailata

Patriots left with
No. 233 – TE Ryan Izzo
2019 7th Rd. pick


Dictator’s Decree: “How dare the Eagles and Patriots waste my valuable time by making me write about such a pointless trade! Don’t they know I’m the supreme dictator of an entire island nation? Can’t they comprehend the demands on my precious time as I unilaterally pass new laws and inflict punishment on my enemies? Enough already!” – March 2019


For as much as I love draft day trades – especially when teams smartly trade down – the volume of New England’s trades exhausts even me, your indefatigable benevolent dictator! It’s a good thing I have more stamina and mental capacity than 15 average men or the Patriots would have put even me over the top this year. Trading No. 233 for No. 250 and a 7th round pick next year is just a waste of everyone’s time. It’s like a pedestrian stopping in the middle of a busy crosswalk to pick up a nickle. I know it’s shiny and technically has some value, but just let it go!

Trade #18.35 – Assets Exchanged
Eagles receive: No. 233 (7th Rd.)
Patriots receive: No. 250 (7th Rd.), 2019 7th Rd. pick

Trade #18.35 – Players Drafted & Transactions


2018 Year-End Summary
And with that meaningless transaction, all of the 2018 draft day trades are complete! I hope one of these guys somehow becomes a Pro Bowler or I’ll feel like writing this column was a waste of my time to write and your time to read. Real talk from your dictator.

Notes on statistics:
