The 2021 NFL Draft is quickly becoming the draft of quarterbacks, or at least in the first round. As many as five quarterbacks could be selected in the top-10 picks, with the potential for the first four picks to all be quarterbacks, which would be an NFL Draft first.

However, there are also some young quarterbacks that could be available on the trade market, highlighted by New York Jets QB Sam Darnold.

Darnold himself was a former top pick, being selected No. 3 overall by the Jets in 2018. After three up-and-down seasons, the franchise seems prepared to move on and select a new signal caller with the No. 2 pick in 2021.

Daniel Jeremiah ranked Darnold within the set of top quarterbacks available in this year's draft and he has the USC product sitting in third.

The interesting part of this ranking is that he has Darnold sitting directly behind BYU's Zach Wilson, who is now largely considered to be the Jets' pick at No. 2 to replace Darnold.

Additionally, he has Darnold ranked three spots ahead of Mac Jones, who is reportedly at the top of San Francisco 49ers wish list after giving up a slew of picks to move up to No. 3 in the NFL Draft.

Sam Darnold Trade Value

The price it will cost to acquire Sam Darnold seems to be changing by the week, but there will certainly be at least one team willing to take a chance on the talent of Darnold, of which many analysts can still be unlocked outside of New York.
