Some trade options
The mock draft simulator I use is fan speak. Most tend to use The Draft Network, but they did not have a simulator when I first started doing mocks, and Fanspeak did. I, therefore, continue to use the one I started with. I always use random draft boards because it is unlikely that every NFL team will have the same big board. I also put the difficulty on max. I do not think the Chicago Bears will be trading into the first round this year.
Some essential information about the mock’s first round. Four quarterbacks were drafted. Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, Jordan Love, and Justin Herbert. Furthermore, six offensive tackles, one running back in D’andre Swift, eight receivers, three off-the-ball linebackers, three edge defenders, and three cornerbacks were selected. These are important to know for the future. Two trades are being offered, none that will be accepted today.
Jets were offering their third-round (15), fourth-round (14), fifth-round (12), and sixth-round (12) picks. The Cardinals were offering their third-round (8), fourth-round (8), fourth-round (25) and sixth-round (23) picks. There is a draft pick point formula involved that is already taken into consideration.
While I do expect Ryan Pace to trade back at least one of the two second-round draft picks. He has, in the past, traded back twice to acquire Cody Whitehair and two fourth-round draft picks. I don’t think he will trade any of them out of the round altogether. That would reduce the incoming draft picks. Think move down about 5-10 slots to gain a single, early day three draft pick.
