We’re tracking every first-round trade made leading up to the 2022 NFL draft, from trades that occurred nearly two years ago to ones that will occur the first night of the draft. They each play an integral part in telling the complete story of the NFL draft.
Here are all of the latest draft-pick deals for Day 1 selections dating to August 2020, when the Seattle Seahawks traded two first-round picks to the New York Jets for Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams. The second of those picks is this year’s No. 10 overall selection, giving the Jets two picks in the top 10.
Their Gotham cohorts, the New York Giants, also have two top-10 picks due in part to a trade they made on the first day of draft last year with the Chicago Bears, which allowed the Bears to select quarterback Justin Fields. Fields isn’t the only quarterback who influenced this year’s draft order via trade, as trades involving signal-callers Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson, Trey Lance, Carson Wentz and recent Super Bowl champion Matthew Stafford have impacted the opening round.
As far as the 2022 draft is concerned, follow along through Round 1 to find out the ramifications of previous trades and to track more moves up and down the draft board.
