If there's a trade to be made during this year's NFL Draft, it's likely going to involve a certain AFC East team.

The New England Patriots lead the NFL in trades that involve the draft. Since 2000, Bill Belichick has agreed to 83 trades during that event, which is close to four trades each year.

The second-place team during that time is the Philadelphia Eagles, who have 64 NFL Draft trades.

When the Patriots want a player, they won't hesitate. Belichick doesn't mind if he's too aggressive since he gets to do what he wants.

One of the biggest examples of Belichick making a lot of draft trades come from 2019. During that draft, he made seven trades with other teams. Two of them involved the No. 101 overall pick, while four of them involved the No. 162 overall pick.

New England has eight total draft picks in this year's draft, including the No. 21 overall pick.

We'll have to see what Belichick has up his sleeve as the NFL Draft kicks off on Apr. 28.
