With a shortage of “elite prospects” in the 2013 NFL Draft class, it should come as no surprise that a number of teams are looking to trade back in the draft order and accumulate more picks. This year, teams seem more willing to jump out of their slotted spot, but will they find any suitors?
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
Teams that have made calls about moving back in draft include PHIL, DET, CLEV, BUFF, MIA. Doing what they should.

Members of those fan bases should be happy to see that it looks like these teams are dedicated to turning things around.
If you want to properly rebuild, you need to compile picks.
If the Eagles, Lions, Browns, Bills or Dolphins could find trade partners, it could drastically change the future of their franchise. Miami is in a really great spot, with teams like the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers looking to trade up to the early teens.
It is going to be a fun few hours on draft day, and we are just two days away.
