The NFL Draft is just under a week away and now that the draft is starting to mildly take shape, talk of trade later in the first round are starting ti intensify. We know all about teams in the top 10 and just outside of there want to move around but lower in the order we have a flurry of activity that has already started at No. 17 with the Baltimore Ravens.
According to NFL Networks’ Ian Rapoport, the Ravens are already starting to get calls with teams interested in jumping the New York Jets at No. 18 and drafting a wide receiver.
Ozzie Newsome tells reporters they’ve already gotten calls about No. 17. Big-time value spot. Teams looking for a WR may want to jump #Jets.

It’s no secret that the Jets want a receiver and the Ravens have prime real estate when it comes to the section of the first round in which we could see a run on players at the position. There’s a good chance that Marqise Lee and Odell Beckham are available and teams will want to jump the Jets to get the prospect they prefer.
It’s a deep class, but there are a slew of teams looking to hop, skip and jump around the back half of the draft and the Ravens seem to control the key to all the action.
