It's that time of year again. NFL draft day is upon us, as representatives from all 32 NFL teams are in New York awaiting Roger Goodell's opening of the 2012 version of the biggest event of the offseason.

For some teams the draft is about replacing lost players. For others it's about finding new superstars to breathe life into their struggling franchise or adding that one last piece to propel them towards a Super Bowl. For each of them, however, it is their last big chance to improve before entering the beginning of next season.

Generally, the draft separates the best from the rest in terms of personnel managers, as those who can keep their cool often come out as the winners. Finding the right balance between patience and aggression is vital if you are going to get value when picking players.

Value is the most important thing in the draft, and it's not just about what player you pick, but when you pick him. As such, working trades is always difficult but a sometimes very rewarding process.

Here are a few trades to watch out for in the first round tonight.
