Every year, exciting trades are made during the NFL draft. The 2012 version will be no different, and we will see plenty of wheeling and dealing.
Some teams have tendencies to move around. Others' trades are dictated entirely by the situation.
For the first time ever, the 2012 draft will have an in-place scale for rookie contracts. This will lead to more trades than ever.
Previously, expensive rookie contracts discouraged trading of the highest picks. Now, the highest-drafted players aren't all that much more expensive than the later first-rounders.
A team like the New England Patriots may finally be willing to go all in for a superstar at the top of the draft.
It's always hard to predict trades, but some moves simply make sense.
