The 2021 NFL Draft is just over a week away and we have already seen two massive trades within the top-10 overall picks. Well, that may not be the end of first-round trades we see as the New York Giants are reportedly starting to receive interest in their No. 11 overall pick.

This is an interesting spot given the Giants could receive a huge haul in return for this pick. With that being said, here are three teams that should trade up for the the Giants' No. 11 pick in the draft.

1. Miami Dolphins (No. 18)

This would be an all-in type of move from the Miami Dolphins. They are already sitting pretty with the No. 6 overall pick, but could grab another top prospect if they moved from No. 18 up to No. 11. This pick could be used to draft another weapon for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa such as wide receiver DeVonta Smith. It could also be used to grab a tough-nosed defender for head coach Brian Flores like Micah Parsons. No matter what, don't be shocked if the Dolphins make headlines once again by pulling the trigger on this type of deal.

2. Washington Football Team (No. 19)

The Washington Football Team made the playoffs for the first time in five years last season and will look to keep their momentum going in 2021. They signed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to a one-year deal to be the team's starter, but do not a have solidified plan at the position past next season. If one of the top QB prospects falls outside of the top 10, Washington would be smart to give up the draft capital necessary to move up and take him. Allowing a young rookie to learn under one of the NFL's most experienced quarterbacks would help out the team in more ways than one.

3. Chicago Bears (No. 20)

Similar to Washington's situation, it is no secret the the Chicago Bears are in need of a franchise quarterback. They haven't had one in a long time and could move up in this draft to finally acquire one. The Bears signed veteran Andy Dalton this offseason to be the team's starter, but that doesn't mean their QB problems are suddenly solved. Bringing a young exciting prospect to the Windy City would give the fans something to celebrate. Plus, it would give the team a chance at success for the next decade or so assuming they can develop him correctly.
