With the NFL Draft just over a week away, we have been looking to see which teams will be standing pat where they are and which teams will be interested in moving up to grab a flashy prospect. There has been plenty of chatter in the top 10 but if we move back to the second half of the round, there is even more activity surrounding the wide receiver position and potential trades.
According to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, teams that are in the back half of the draft are convinced that the San Francisco 49ers will jump and make a trade that lands them a wide receiver prospect.
This isn’t particularly new information, as we’ve been hearing about the Niners wanting to trade up for about a week now, but it just shows that teams are more and more convinced that the Niners are eyeing a trade up. It’s unclear how high the Niners will trade but a separate Rapoport report noted that the Baltimore Ravens are fielding trade calls already for the No. 17 overall pick, and the Harbaugh brothers may end up getting on the line with one another to talk trade.
