AFC East's 38 picks most in NFL
There was a torrent of trades during the first round of the draft Thursday night, and more are expected when the second and third rounds take place Friday night.
NFC West blogger Mike Sando has charted where the divisions stand, and the AFC East owns the most draft choices on the board with 38.
The New England Patriots are the main reason with a league-high 13 picks. They hold the most picks of any team in the second round (three picks) and seventh round (five picks).
In a division-by-division breakdown, the AFC East owns the most selections in the second and seventh rounds and are tied for the most in the sixth, where the Miami Dolphins hold three picks.
The Dolphins are tied for third in the league with 10 picks. The Buffalo Bills are tied for seventh with nine picks.
The New York Jets have six picks. Only the Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins have fewer.
