The buzz linking the Patriots to Cam Jordan continued Thursday afternoon. ESPN's Chris Mortensen said New England is finding out what it will take to get the ninth overall pick from Dallas. The Patriots' quarry would be the Cal defensive end, Mort reports. "Trade Buzz: New England looking to trade with Dallas to get Cameron Jordan."Soon after, Mort's ESPN colleague Adam Schefter tweeted, "Any proposed Cowboys-Patriots trade will not happen. Yet there are any number of teams interested in moving back, including Dallas."Schefter wouldn't walk that plank so fearlessly if he didn't feel very safe in saying so. Meanwhile, NFL Network's Greg Cosell tweets that, "Cal's Jordan could get into top 10. Scheme position versatile. Believe has chance to become more explosive pass rusher as he matures."It's rare for the Patriots to jump up in the firstround and they've never moved up into the top 10 for a player.
