Reasons for the trades:

A. Philly-Cleveland: The Eagles land perhaps the best pure 4-3 OLB in this class, get to keep their other top 50 pick, and trade from their draft pick depth. The Browns pick up an extra 3rd as well as a late pick as they look to continue their rebuild.

B. Rams-Steelers: The Rams get to use their draft pick depth to move up a couple spots and land a 1st round talent at DT. The Steelers again get to add more picks and depth to their team.

C. Falcons-Redskins: Tony Gonzalez is again saying next year is his final season, and at this point I would start to believe him. The Falcons I think will take an ‘all-in’ approach and look to move up to grab the top TE. Allen would be a perfect 4th weapon next year for Atlanta, and could seamlessly replace Gonzalez in 2013. The Falcons give up a 1st next year, but by keeping their own 2nd, they can add two impact players to a pretty strong team. The Redskins get to push some of their draft windfall to next season, while not actually having a loss in the number of picks they have.

D. Redskins-Lions: The Redskins now get to use their excess picks to trade back up into the 2nd round and grab a top flight CB. From the Lions perspective they get to turn their late 2nd rounder into a pair of 3rd round picks. Detroit could use some extra picks as they are another team facing serious salary cap issues.

E.Rams-49ers: The Rams get to move up a few spots to ensure they land another key defensive starter. Given all their extra picks, St. Louis still comes out ahead. The 49ers get to pick up some extra selections for only moving back a few spots.
