It is very unlikely one of the two best tight ends in the draft -- T.J. Hockenson and Noah Fant -- fall to the Patriots at No. 32 overall, but that doesn't mean they have no chance of landing one of them.

According to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, the Patriots will "seriously consider" trading up for Fant on Thursday night, that is how much they like him. 

It will likely be a question of how far up they will want to go, as it doesn't make much sense to move all the way up to the middle of the first round because of what it would cost, but maybe if he falls to around No. 20 then a potential deal could be more likely.

Fant finished this past season at Iowa with 39 catches for 519 yards and seven touchdowns.
