NFL Trade Speculation: 7 Players Who Could Be Traded During Draft

The National Football League doesn't support an atmosphere that makes the trading of players prominent during the offseason. There are multiple reasons for this. 

First, the salary cap disables a team's ability to take on a rather large contract without restructuring the deal beforehand. Secondly, the league wants to avoid the payroll purges that have become such a fixture in Major League Baseball. Finally, draft picks have become too important to give up for another teams' throwaway veteran. 

With that said, we have seen some big trades over the course of the last few seasons. Certain franchises hold off releasing a player because they want to get some resemblance of value for him. 

In the end, trades come down to the three days of the NFL draft in April. At this point, we see a wide array of different player moves occur. 

This article is going to focus on seven players who might very well be traded during the annual event in Radio City Music Hall.
