Detailing the 43 trades (so far) of 2015 draft selections

AP

As we detailed earlier today, the 2015 NFL Draft order is now officially set following the doling out of compensatory draft picks at the league meetings on Monday. However, that order is still subject to change barring any further trades of draft choices between now and the start of the draft in late April.

In fact, teams have already traded 2015 draft selections 43 times up to this point with countless more deals likely to occur during the draft itself.

Only two first-round picks have been traded and only three picks in the first three rounds have changed hands so far. Most of the trades have involved picks on the final day of the draft. There have been no trades involving second-round selections.

Here is the list of every draft pick that has been traded so far.

    Great job! Thanks for the breakdown. #PositivePost

    1-19-19 Cleveland from Buffalo
    4-16-115 Cleveland from Buffalo

    Then Buffalo goes and gets everything but a QB, that only makes sense in Buffalo.

    Buffalo, Buffalo & Buffalo.

    Good article, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one wondering about some of the selections that had been traded.

  7. restorativejusticeprogram says: Mar 25, 2015 7:50 AM

    A lot of those trades involve New England. Can’t question any of them because, well, scoreboard!

    That is a crappy ass format.

  10. dallasdominates says: Mar 25, 2015 9:11 AM

    All these numbers are making my head spin.

    Check out the trades New England made for Casillas and Ayers.

    5-32-168 Tampa Bay from New England
    6-2-177 New England from Tampa Bay

    6-32-207 Tennessee from New England
    7-2-219 New England from Tennessee

    New England basically moved down a couple of spots in each case, and in return got a player that played a decent number of snaps and assisted in getting to and winning the Super Bowl. That is why Belichick is a master at manipulating the draft.

    deacon85, also check the 4th from TB from the Mankins deal is the 2nd pick of the round.

  13. granadafan says: Mar 25, 2015 11:50 AM

    Nice summary, PFT. I didn’t realize how darned complicated it all was with all the trades.

    6-32-207 Tennessee from New England
    7-2-219 New England from Tennessee

    Picks swapped as part of New England’s trade for linebacker Akeem Ayers.

    ——————————-

    This deal still boggles my mind. The Titans gained 12 overall spots very late in the draft & gave up Akeem Ayers, a promising former 2nd rd pick, to do it. There have been many bad moves, but this is the one that really pushes me over the edge for wanting Ruston Webster gone. I get that AA was in the last year of his rookie deal, but they essentially gave him away for nothing. There is a 99% chance that the guy they want at 207 is still there at 219.

  15. sadsackashizz says: Mar 25, 2015 1:17 PM

    That is why Belichick is a master at manipulating the draft.

    ——————————–

    That’s not BB, that’s the crappy GMs on the other side of the trade. I guess BB deserves a sliver of credit for taking advantage of others’ stupidity.

    Once again Seattle proves itself the best organization and team in the NFL.

  17. skawh says: Mar 25, 2015 3:19 PM

    I’m just happy to observe the JG trade to Seattle near the top. Talk about a positive omen. 2015 awaits.

  18. flipola says: Mar 25, 2015 9:44 PM

    So we gave up Akeem Ayers to improve two draft spots. That makes sense.

  19. milleniummitch says: Mar 27, 2015 3:25 PM

    The Detroit Lions could stand to be a little more active in pre-draft trading of players for picks…Trading on draft day is only harder
