NFL Draft Rumors: Last Second Trade Rumors for 2011 NFL Draft Order

NFL draft rumors have been spreading like wildfire since the instant the draft order was set in stone back in February (and possibly even before that) as teams looked to potentially move up the draft board, slide down to get a particular player they wanted in the area he deserved to be taken in or even to get multiple picks in later rounds of the draft. 

Now, with less than 12 hours to go until the draft kicks off, the action really heats up. This is when teams start seriously looking at moving players and picks around in and effort to improve their spot in the draft or to get more picks later. 

With the lockout officially on hold, the league seems likely to put its old rules in place at some point before the draft kicks off at 8 p.m. EST. That means we can expect plenty of shuffling of the order over the course of the day, and once the draft begins, things will really heat up. 

But, which teams are looking to deal? Who's looking to jump up the board, and who's willing to take a trip down the order to fill their needs there and later in the draft? 

We're breaking down all of the rumblings from around the NFL with regards to trades surrounding the draft today, telling you all the relevant news from around the NFL today and making sure you're up to date on the latest scuttlebutt from around the league leading up to the draft. 

So practice your handshake (and possibly your awkward man-hug) and pick out your draft hat, and let's get started, shall we?
