Poll: Team most likely to trade?
By James Walker
We have another interesting poll in the AFC East blog. This week we ask which division team is most likely to pull off a first-round trade during Thursday’s NFL draft.
There is expected to be some moving and shaking. Monday’s blogger mock draft was a good example of all that can happen on draft day. But which AFC East team is most likely to trade up or down in the first round?
Will it be the Miami Dolphins? Miami holds the No. 8 pick and is interested in Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Will Miami trade up to the No. 3 pick to secure Tannehill?
What about the Buffalo Bills at No. 10? It’s an odd spot to be in, considering Buffalo’s needs. Will the Bills consider trading up or down to get a franchise-caliber player they covet?
The New York Jets have 10 picks in this draft. That’s a lot of draft capital to make a move up. Will Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum move up to get a pass-rusher like Melvin Ingram of South Carolina or safety Mark Barron of Alabama?
Finally, the New England Patriots are known for their draft-day trades. The reigning AFC champs hold two picks (No. 27 and No. 31) in the first round. Will the Patriots move up to get a better prospect or trade out the first round, which is what they’re known for?
