The 2013 NFL draft player pool is filled with value, but without an established top tier of players, we might see more trade movement then we normally see as teams conduct targeted trades to go up and get their “guy”. Teams should be more active in this draft if they see a player that fits what they are looking for, instead of waiting to see what falls to them.
Teams like the Arizona Cardinals, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams have a very clear need, but they might have to move to get the right player. Without moving, they could lose out and miss on the player they really want, or miss on the position entirely.
Right now the player pool for the 2013 is very muddy, and there will be a lot of uncertainty with the picks that are made. The muddy player pool makes this draft different, and teams will have the opportunity to make their picks count if they can find a way to move up to get them.
Let’s look at the teams that could move up in the 2013 NFL draft and the players they may be targeting.
