2014 NFL Draft Trade Rumors: Detroit Lions Have Several Ways To Trade Up

As draft day approaches more rumors are surfacing about the possible war room strategies of NFL teams.  NFL writer Ian Rapoport’s tweets  from the annual meetings today highlight several NFL teams who are drafting in the top ten willing to trade back in the first round.



With the growing discontent with the drafts top prospects, the price to trade up into the draft might not be as high a previously thought.  Tampa Bay’s willingness to trade back is also very interesting for the Lions consider ing they have enough cap space available to absorb a big contract in a trade.

With the Lions rumored to be shopping Ndamukong Suh, it gives Detroit some interesting trade bait for teams that are looking for a bad boy identity on defense.  Both the Tampa Bay buccaneers and Oakland Raiders fit that description and may be willing to deal for Suh on draft day.

But with several teams looking to trade down the Lions may not have to give up Ndamukong Suh in order to get a high selection. With all the possible scenarios out there, it will make for a very exciting opening round of the 2014 NFL Draft for Lions fans.
