Logic behind the trades:
-Carolina needs impact talent in the middle, while they can get a really good defensive tackle at 14, they can move up to get an elite talent here. From the Bills perspective they can move back some and still address one of their key needs.
-Tampa takes advantage of a sliding Dee MIllner to fill their biggest need. New York slides down the draft board, still lands their quarterback and picks up some extra selections to help their rebuild.
-Minnesota jumps up to land the top receiver in the draft and fill what has been a major need for them. Pittsburgh slides back and picks up some extra picks to help replace some of the free agents they are likely to lose.
-Houston makes sure they land a top receiver, and one with incredible upside, while St. Louis slides down while still filling a pretty big need.
-Baltimore finds their replacement for Ray Lewis. Indy restocks some of the draft depth they lost with some of their trades.
-Buffalo ensures the land a top young quarterback which is a massive need for them, New England trades back to restock some of the picks they have lost.
