There was a 2022 NFL Draft trade consummated on Monday afternoon, but it wasn't of the juicy variety that fans are hoping for right now.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the New England Patriots sent their fifth-round pick this year to the Houston Texans in exchange for sixth and seventh-rounder selections.

Coming into today, Houston owned three picks in the sixth round (Nos. 183, 205 and 207) and none in the fifth, so it makes some sense that they would move up for a fifth-rounder. So, if you're scoring at home, New England sent the 170th overall selection to Houston for the 245th overall and one of those sixth-round slots.

All of these picks are on Day 3 (Saturday) of the draft.

The 2022 NFL Draft gets underway on Thursday night in Las Vegas. The first round will take place Thursday with the second and third rounds on Friday.

The final four rounds will play out on Saturday.
