As the 2009 draft approaches, several teams in the top 10 actively are trying to trade out of it.

We’re hearing that this group includes the Lions, Chiefs, and Browns.

It also includes the Jaguars, whom we’re told are desperately trying to get out of the eighth overall spot in the draft.


http://www.sportingnews.com/blog/real_scouts/entry/view/23054/jags_trying_hard_to_trade_out_of_top_10

Those 3 teams aswell as the Lions and Rams are trying to trade out of top 10, but no team is interested.

Today's contracts don't seem to worth the value of a top prospect, teams might end up passing on their turns in the draft to draft in a later slot in-order to pay less.

***Update***
Chiefs GM Scott Pioli admitted he will listen to offers about the 3rd overall pick.

Agreed. This is also a very bad draft class.

On SI Truth and Rumors is does mention a scenario that includes the Broncos trading up to 8. It would make sense if Raji was still available.

with as many needs as the broncos have on defense, id just sign a big fat FA to play NT temporarily until they fill most of their other needs.

then again kris jenkins reallllly upgraded the jets D Think

The other problem is what teams who have a top 10 pick want for their pick. I bet Pittsburgh would be willing to trade their first and second for a top 10 pick but I doubt any team would be willing to accept that. But Pittsburgh would be foolish to give up more then that to take a player that probably has a 50% bust rate and that contract. The same is probably true of any of the teams drafting later in the round. No way can any team that does want to trade out of the top 10 get the value they feel the pick, not with the contracts at what they are at. You can get a good player anywhere in the first round and an elite prospect anywhere in the top 20. Very few teams in the top 20 will be willing to trade up unless a specific player comes available and no team outside the top 20 will be willing to give up what a team in the top 10 wants.

If teams start passing on picks it become even better for teams outside the top 10, they get to trade up without any cost.

It used to be that the top spots in the draft were coveted spots. However, somewhere along the way teams got wise to the fact that top 10 contracts are rarely worth it. Top 10 players bust almost as often as players selected in the 20-30 range, and they cost a fraction of cap space as top 10 talents. For several years now teams have desperately wanted out of the top spots, but its very difficult, nay, nearly impossible, to find anyone who wants to give up a ton of picks, and a ton of cash/cap space to land a top prospect.

Unless St. Louis takes Curry, I think Kansas City should just take him, even though they'd be paying an unproven player a ton of money. Trading down makes a lot of sense for both Cleveland and Jacksonville.

This is why it'd be very wise for all the top 10 teams to ban together and form somewhat of a union to help lowr the price tags.

Lions don't want the expense of the first pick.

Chiefs would rather have Rey.

Browns have too many holes to fill.

Jags don't want to reach for Maclin.



Those are my predictions.

Everyone wants to trade out. This is probably the worst top 10 in awhile, it makes sense.

The Chiefs would rather have Rey Maualuga over Aaron Curry? Are you serious? I'm guessing if the Chiefs were to trade down, it'd be because they want more draft picks and not have to pay that much money to one player, not because they want Rey.

Im shocked the Steelers aren't biting on this.

Then again it doesn't help if you two highest paid players in franchise history are on the team right now Evil or Very Mad
