2013 NFL Draft trades: Day One

E.J. Manuel AP

Five trades occurred in Round One of the 2013 NFL Draft on Thursday. Here are the terms of those deals:

The Dolphins acquired the Raiders’ first-round choice (No. 3 overall), with Oakland receiving Miami’s first- and second-round choices (Nos. 12 and 42) in return. The Dolphins selected Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan with the No. 3 overall pick, with the Raiders taking D.J. Hayden 12th.

The Rams traded for the Bills’ first- and third-round choices (Nos. 8 and 71), with Buffalo getting St. Louis’ first-, second-, third- and seventh-round choices (Nos. 16, 46, 78, 222). With the No. 8 pick, the Rams drafted West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin. At No. 16, the Bills selected Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel.

The 49ers traded up with Dallas, acquiring the Cowboys’ first-round choice (No. 18) for San Francisco’s first- and third-round choices (Nos. 31 and 74, the latter of which once belonged to Carolina). At No. 18, the 49ers drafted Louisiana State safety Eric Reid. The Cowboys took Wisconsin center Travis Frederick 31st.

The Falcons traded their first-round pick (No. 30) as well as third- and sixth-round choices (Nos. 92, 198) for the Rams’ first-round choice (No. 22 overall and formerly Washington’s Round One pick) and a conditional 2o15 seventh-round pick. The Falcons drafted Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant at No. 22. The Rams, meanwhile, selected Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree at No. 30.

The Vikings, who had already exercised two earlier first-round picks (Nos. 23, 25), traded back into Round One, acquiring the Patriots’ first-round pick (No. 29) in exchange for second-, third-, fourth- and seventh-round picks (Nos. 52, 83, 102, 229). (Pick No. 102 was originally Detroit’s selection.) The Vikings drafted Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson at No. 29.

    You mean the 49ers 1st round draft pick (#31), correct?

    I really think the Vikings and Pats trade was a win-win for both clubs. While the Pats have a need at WR, the WR’s there in the latter first were risky, raw guys that likely would’ve gone the way of a Chad Jackson upon going there. They have other needs besides WR’s, so stocking up a lot of picks makes sense, particularly because the values/guys in the 2nd/3rd should all be bunched together.

    On the other hand, sometimes a team needs to gamble. Had Sharrif Floyd not fallen, my guess is that the Vikings would’ve used a pick on Cordarelle Patterson already, but they lucked into Floyd and added the CB. It’s a critical year in Ponder’s development, and there’s only oh so many seasons left of Peterson being Peterson, so gambling on a WR here made sense.

    Nice first day by the Vikes, but not sure I’d trade four picks just to get Patterson, who has been described as an idiot by at least one NFL scout.

    I think we all can agree that Buffalo made the worst 1st round pick of any team in quite some time. They could have drafted the guy in the third round. That pick might kill Ralph Wilson

    Wasted a second round pick to trade up to 3 to get a player that is a luxury and doesn’t fill the more pressing need. Yay dolphins. New logo, same piss-poor management.

    The bills made out the best in many opinion. I think that was a hell of a trade. The riskiest is that trade the vikings made to get patterson. That’s an awful lot to give up for a juco/1 year division one player. I don’t know what they were thinking about with that one.

    WOW The Vikings made some amazing things happen. 3 new studs to join the starters!
    Sharriff, Xavier AND Cordarelle!!!!??!
    Insane. #HerecometheVikings

    considering the talent available at #12. giving up #42 to get to #3 is going to look better and better. Miami has to nail that #54.pick.

  9. dolfan13 says: Apr 26, 2013 7:17 AM

    the phone should have insisted on giving their second 2nd round pick not their first (no. 54 instead of no. 42).

    Not very happy with the pick as a 9er fan. I thought they might of reached with this one. Reid is physical, great tackler, & run defender but, is mediocre in his pass defense at best. I think they could have stayed at 31 & still got him. No safety was picked after Reid until Baltimore took Elam @ 32.after new Orleans picked vacarro I think they were nervous. I trust baalke & harbaugh over my knowledge of all these players but I thought they could have got Reid @31 or cypriani who to me looked better then Reid.

    I smell another trade for the Vikings coming, with limited cap room and three #1 picks and still some holes to fill it would not shock me to see the Vikings sign and trade an aging but still disruptive Jared Allen and his big cap number. Spielman is a draft and young player guy so sending Jared to a team drafting in the top 10 or so in the 2nd and 3rd round isn’t a stretch. Jared is a FA next year and is going to want big $$ after this season and Vikings won’t be able to pull it off.

    Draft winner = vikings
    Draft loser = jets

    Nice move by the Patriots.

    As a Rams fan, I just want to thank the Redskins for way overpaying for RGIII and giving the Rams plenty of re-building ammo. In fact, thanks to that trade the Rams are no longer re-building, rather just adding great players to an already talented team. More to come in next years draft. Thanks again you big dummies.

  15. jimmyt says: Apr 26, 2013 8:23 AM

    Oh, and the Cowboy’s deserve an honorable mention. I mean really Jerry, when evaluating DB’s I think it’s safe to say you should defer to Jeff Fisher. You got an injured CB that is not that good, the Rams got Jenkins and Brockers.

  16. skito13 says: Apr 26, 2013 8:27 AM

    Rams to jets….Your lunch tastes GOOD…

  17. andylucksneck says: Apr 26, 2013 10:17 AM

    The bills once again show the world why they are the bills in drafting Manuel. FSU qb’s just don’t pan out in the pros. Ponder us awful, ware never played, brad Johnson won a ring because of the defense etc…… The bills are simply awful.

    HTTR!!!!!!!!

    Allen’s cap number is $17.5 million this year. They’ll give him a nice contract extension this summer to bring that number down. You don’t trade Jared Allen when you’re going for the Super Bowl, Homeboy.

    I am pretty sure that they needed to trade away a few of their 14 picks. They will probably be trading a few more away. Just no room on the team or payroll for 14 picks. Better to trade up and guarantee your guy.

    Oh boy.
