You want trades? We got trades.

Mock draft 5.0 marks our first ever with trades. Four trades shake up the top 10. Atlanta traded twice, first down and then up.

The result of three trades in the top four is that quarterbacks were taken one, two, three and four. Carolina, Denver and New England traded up for quarterbacks. And then Atlanta, which dropped down from No. 4 to No. 15, then made a move up to No. 7 for the draft’s best tight end.

Here’s the problem with allowing trades in a mock draft: They’re so much fun that it’s hard to stop.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars: QB Trevor Lawrence, Clemson

Starred in high school and then at college only 6 hours away.

Last time: Lawrence.

TRADE: Jets trade No. 2 to Panthers for No. 8 in 2021, No. 73, No. 151, and first-rounder in 2022.

2. Carolina Panthers: QB Zach Wilson, Brigham Young

Multi-billionaire owner makes his move.

Last time: Wilson (Jets).

TRADE: Dolphins trade No. 3 to Broncos for No. 9, No. 40 and No. 152, and second-rounder in 2022.

3. Denver Broncos: QB Trey Lance, North Dakota State

Last time: Jamar Chase (Dolphins).

TRADE: Falcons trade No. 4 to Patriots for No. 15 and No. 96, and first-rounder in 2022.

4. New England Patriots: QB Justin Fields, Ohio State

Last time: Devonta Smith.

TRADE: Lions trade No. 7 to Falcons for No. 15 and No. 35, and fourth-rounder in 2022.

7. Atlanta Falcons: TE Kyle Pitts, Florida

So, Falcons move down, then up, and get the tight end they wanted plus New England’s 2022 No. 1.

Last time: Waddle (Lions).

8. New York Jets: OT Penei Sewell, Oregon

After trade-down, Jets nab draft’s top offensive tackle to pair with Mekhi Becton.
