Of all the Draft Day moves that titillate NFL fans, nothing excites them more than trading out of your draft position for more picks. It seems to excite teams, too, judging by all the rumors teams looking to trade down.
Twitter (which has emerged as a major channel for up to the second news) carries reports from credible sources of teams looking to trade down.
More teams want to trade down every year than to trade up. THIS year, with all the extra-legal wrangling, teams may have a concern that rookies will demand wealth beyond their talent to join the league because, you know, the league shut down free agent movement and teams cannot sign veterans. Trading down is a back door way to control costs.
Owners are so poor at controlling cost.
