2012 NFL Draft: The 7 Teams Most Likely To Trade Up for Andrew Luck

While we do not yet know which NFL team will hold the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, it can be assumed that the No. 1 selection will be Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck is one of the best quarterback prospects coming out of college ever, a franchise quarterback who could be among the NFL’s best signal-callers for years to come.

With one week remaining in the NFL season, the No. 1 overall draft choice will go to the Indianapolis Colts if they lose in Week 17. If the Colts win, then the pick would go to the St. Louis Rams if they lose in Week 17.

Regardless of which team acquires the first selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, there is a strong likelihood that a team could trade up for the chance to draft Luck. Both the Rams, with Sam Bradford, and the Colts, with Peyton Manning, already have franchise quarterbacks.

Either team will have a difficult decision to make about the future of their franchise if they receive the first overall pick: whether to keep the quarterback they have and trade the first pick to the highest bidder, or to change direction by drafting Luck, and trading their QB.

Given the rare caliber of prospect that Luck is, the No. 1 overall pick carries an extremely high value this year. The pick will most likely pull in a package of three to four first-round picks over the next three or four seasons, with additional assets possibly included.

If the pick does hit the trade market, these are the seven teams most likely to strike a deal to move up to the top spot in the 2012 NFL Draft.
