The 2022 NFL Draft is just a few hours away, and reports suggest that plenty of teams are looking to trade down. That could create something of an inefficiency in the trade market, as moving up might not cost as much as it would in other years.
With that in mind, here are the three teams most likely to move up in the Draft.
NFL Draft Rumors
3. New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints traded a ton of future picks to add the No. 19 selection, giving GM Mickey Loomis two picks in the top 20. The team has obvious needs at premium positions like quarterback, wide receiver and tackle. If they've fallen in love with one particular prospect, it's not hard to envision New Orleans packaging some picks to go get their guy in the top 10.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers
It's hard to see the Pittsburgh Steelers picking anything other than quarterback in Round 1. And if they believe there's a legit franchise QB in this class, they're going to do whatever it takes to land that guy. Malik Willis and Kenny Pickett feel like the most likely options, and the Seattle Seahawks are logical trade partners at No. 9.
1. Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles have a war chest of assets. If Howie Roseman wants someone, he'll have no trouble putting together a package to go get him. Philadelphia owns six picks in the top 125 this year, and they have four picks in the first three rounds next year, including two first rounders. Package No. 15 with some mid-round assets this year and Philadelphia could jump into the top 10 without breaking a sweat. If someone like Derrick Stingley begins to fall, don't be surprised to see Philly trade up to No. 9 to jump CB-needy teams like the Jets, Vikings and Texans.
