According to NFL Media's Mike Garafolo speaking on the NFL Network Tuesday afternoon, the Patriots would need to get a first-round pick in 2017 and a first-round pick in 2018 in order to deal him.
This time, trade winds are blowing again regarding backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The possibility of trading the 12th pick in a package deal for Garoppolo while retaining the first overall pick in the draft (and taking defensive end Myles Garrett) would be a "dream scenario".
Of course, you can either take that at face value, or you can read it as the Patriots putting it out there that if a team really wants Jimmy, don't come at New England with a BS trade offer. He was a second-round pick of New England back in 2014.
In two starts this past season, Garoppolo completed 68.3 percent of his passes for over 500 yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Usually, however, a bill is publicly introduced, and the text known and available, well before a markup session happens. He stopped to speak to a bust of Abraham Lincoln to ask if he's seen the health care bill.
In addition to Cleveland, both the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers have have been linked to Garoppolo.
With a plethora of picks in this year's draft, the Cleveland Browns could take a major step forward in what figures to be an intense rebuilding process. No team wants to carry two quarterbacks at starter-level price tags, especially an astute team in salary cap management such as New England.
But Garoppolo is a valuable commodity with so many teams looking for franchise quarterbacks. With the Ravens offering a first- and second-round pick, the Redskins added a third-rounder and the deal was done.
A team may still trade for Garoppolo in that scenario in order to avoid a free-agent bidding situation, but the bounty for the Patriots would probably be less than they can get now, and the new team would have the hard task of negotiating a long-term deal with a player who has limited starting experience. I think everyone needs to see more from Garoppolo before giving up that much for him. He said there has been interest, but the Patriots, "won't unload Garoppolo unless a team meets their price".
