One of the most exciting parts of first round of the NFL draft is listening to all of the trade talk. 

In 2018, 15 of the 32 first-round picks exchanged hands at some point, with three of those deals producing franchise quarterbacks. 

Most of the trade speculation leading up to the 2019 NFL draft starts at the No. 3 pick, where the New York Jets are scheduled to pick. 

Other teams in the top 10 have been rumored to be moving back, and there is already some buzz surrounding the final few picks of Thursday's first round.

Latest Trade Rumors

Trade For No. 3 Pick Could Happen 

The New York Jets sit in an ideal position at No. 3. 

The Jets could stay at third overall and select one of the top defensive prospects, likely Quinnen Williams or Josh Allen, or they could listen to trade offers and fall further down the draft order. 

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has made it clear he is willing to listen to potential deals.

"There could be a possibility someone comes up for a quarterback," Rapoport said. "(NFL Network)'s Mike Garafolo has mentioned the Redskins have had talks about possibly trading up into the top five. ... The reason I say No. 3 [as the pick to watch] is because the Oakland Raiders have become somewhat of a curiosity."

If the Redskins are serious about selecting a quarterback in the first round, they could be forced to trade up to No. 3 given the interest Oakland has shown in the collection of signal-callers.

According to Rapoport, Dwayne Haskins could be considered at No. 4 after moving up Oakland's draft board last week. 

ESPN's Dianna Russini reported Wednesday that the Redskins' target would be Haskins.

Whether Oakland's affection for Haskins is real or not, the Redskins might be forced to trade up to No. 3 if they really want the quarterback out of Ohio State. 


Detroit, Buffalo Could Trade Back 

Two teams slated to pick at the back end of the top 10 could be looking for trade partners to move further down the first round. 

According to Fox Sports' Peter Schrager, the Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills could be trading out of the top 10. 

Both teams could upgrade their squads with one of the many top defensive prospects, an offensive lineman, or even a skill position player on offense. 

But trading down could become an intriguing possibility for the Lions and Bills if the first round goes a certain way. 

If Haskins, Drew Lock and Daniel Jones are still available by the time the Lions are set to pick at No. 8, a flurry of calls could come in from teams looking to move up and draft a quarterback. 

As we witnessed last year with the New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals, teams are more than willing to trade up in order to secure the services of a franchise quarterback.

If no trades occur between the first and seventh picks and Kyler Murray is the only quarterback chosen, the trade market could erupt with eyes solely on quarterbacks. 


Rams Already Fielding Trade Calls

The first round could go in a number of directions before the Los Angeles Rams are on the clock at No. 31. 

But that hasn't stopped teams from checking in with the Rams for possible trades, per ESPN's Adam Schefter

Schefter noted teams covet the fifth-year option on contracts for first-round picks and that the back end of the first round could be fluid and busy.

The latest first-round trade that occurred in 2018 involved the No. 27 pick, which Seattle used to take Rashaad Penny after dealing with Green Bay. 

In 2017, three of the last four first-round selections traded hands at some point, and it benefited Cleveland, San Francisco and New Orleans.

The Browns took David Njoku with the No. 29 pick acquired from Green Bay, the 49ers selected Reuben Foster at No. 31 following a trade with Seattle and New Orleans took Ryan Ramczyk at No. 32 with the pick it got in return in the Brandin Cooks trade with New England.
