Trade rumors always swirl on Draft Day, and this year is no exception.

One source reports that a Ryan Mallett-to-the-Texans trade may completed soon. According to that source, the Patriots will receive a third-round pick in return. Another source, however, says nothing is doing at the moment on Mallett to Houston.

We'll watch how it plays out. If true -- and remember, Houston coach Bill O'Brien was offensive coordinator in Foxboro during Mallett's rookie season of 2011 -- that would theoretically end the Texans' quarterback search and free them up to take Jadeveon Clowney with the overall No. 1 pick.
