No need to go into detail with all the minor deals that happened during the draft, but there were a handful of trades in the first couple of rounds that should have a significant impact in the immediate future:
* Browns trade No. 6 pick (WR Julio Jones) to Falcons for first-round, second-round and fourth-round picks in 2011, plus first-round and fourth-round picks in 2012.
Moderate risk for Atlanta, who gets a big-play receiver with Pro Bowl potential in Jones to complement certified Pro Bowl receiver Roddy White—last season's NFL leader in receptions and yards. Five draft picks seems like a lot to give up for one player, but the Falcons have an opportunity to contend for a Super Bowl now, so it's worth it to make a bold move.
Moderate risk for Cleveland, who hasn't had a franchise-changing star at any of the skill positions in at least a decade. They could have scored a future superstar with that No. 6 pick but opted for depth over one shining talent. If any of the players they could have taken sixth becomes a superstar, the Browns will hear about it later.
* Chiefs trade 21st pick (DT Phil Taylor) to Browns for 26th pick (WR Jonathan Baldwin) and third-round pick.
Low risk for Kansas City, who acquired an extra pick and still got the receiver they wanted.
Low risk for Cleveland, who were loaded with draft picks after the Julio Jones trade and only fell five more spots, where they landed an immediate starter in Taylor.
* Redskins trade 10th pick (QB Blaine Gabbert) to Jaguars for 16th pick (DE Ryan Kerrigan) and second-round pick.
Moderate risk for Washington, who were/are desperately in need of a quarterback but obviously weren't sold on any of the options available with the 10th pick.
Low risk for Jacksonville, who got their QB of the future for the cost of a second-round pick.
* Patriots trade 28th pick (RB Mark Ingram) to Saints for second-round pick in 2011, plus first-round pick in 2012.
Low risk for New England, who already have most of their pieces in place and scored another first-round pick for the future.
Low risk for New Orleans, who landed a potential star running back in Ingram to add to a roster that's ready to win now.
* Broncos trade 36th pick (QB Colin Kaepernick) to 49ers for second-round, fourth-round and fifth-round picks.
Low risk for Denver, who needed more picks to shore up a weak defense.
Low risk for San Francisco, who needed to find their quarterback of the future more than anything.
* Redskins trade 49th pick (OG Ben Ijalana) to Colts for second-round and fourth-round picks.
Low risk for Washington, who added more draft picks to their rebuilding effort.
Low risk for Indianapolis, who needed to upgrade their offensive line and preserve Peyton Manning more than they need future picks.
