The 10 Most Plausible NFL Draft-Day Trades

Trades are becoming a bit more evident in recent years around the NFL.

There are myriad of reasons for this, but mainly it's about teams attempting to target a specific rookie or veteran during the draft. 

Two of the San Francisco 49ers' best players, Colin Kaepernick and NaVorro Bowman, were acquired via draft-day trades. Meanwhile, Ray Lewis was selected by the Baltimore Ravens with a pick that was originally held by the 49ers. 

Those are just three examples of many draft-day trades that have worked out.

With the free-agent market quickly becoming void of decent talent, teams will also start to turn their attention to the trade market. There are a ton of options out there, even after the trades that we have seen over the last month. 

Here is a gander at 10 plausible trades that could take place either prior to the draft later this month or during the annual event in New York City. 

Note: I initially had Carson Palmer, Matt Flynn and Colt McCoy included in this article. All three were traded earlier in the week.
