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 it, as the Miami Dolphins are reportedly receiving a ton of interest in their No. 6 overall pick. It would become their third trade of this draft so far.

At this point, it would take a lot for the Dolphins to move down, but there are a number of NFL teams below them with vital roster needs to address. With that being said, here are three teams that should trade up for Miami's No. 6 pick.

1. Denver Broncos (No. 9)

The Denver Broncos have struggled to find a franchise quarterback ever since Peyton Manning retired and it doesn't seem like Drew Lock is the surefire solution. He tied for the league lead in interceptions last season and struggled to win ball games. Moving up to No. 6 would almost certainly allow Denver to select one of the top 5 QB prospects in this class such as Justin FIelds or Trey Lance. If they stay put, it is possible that those players are all gone by the time they are on the clock. This deal would show the Broncos aren't messing around.

2. Philadelphia Eagles (No. 12)

This move would be nuts given it was the Philadelphia Eagles that traded down from No. 6 to No. 12 with the Dolphins in the first place. However, you can never truly know what GM Howie Roseman is up to. There is a chance that the Eagles would be able to grab a game-changing offensive talent at No. 6 given the amount of quarterbacks expected to be taken early on. Adding tight end Kyle Pitts or wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase to this offense would give Philadelphia fans something positive to cheer for next season at Lincoln Financial Field.

3. New England Patriots (No. 15)

Another GM that is no stranger to making big moves is Bill Belichick. The New England Patriots could take advantage of this opportunity and trade up for their quarterback of the future. Moving up nine spots would take a ton of draft capital, but it may be worth it if Belichick has his eyes set on a specific signal caller in this class. New England only signed Cam Newton to a one-year deal. Trading up here would allow them to create a plan at the position past the 2021 season and possibly turn things around more quickly than expected.
