NFL Draft 2012: Trade Rumors Heating Up As Draft Time Nears

Thursday night's opening round of the 2012 NFL draft is fast approaching. As the No. 1 selection draws near, the rumors and buzz are only becoming more intense.

Adam Schefter of ESPN has reported that there are still quite a number of teams looking to entertain trade offers for moving up or down in the draft, as well as teams trying to learn all they can about prospects at the 11th hour.

Schefter reports that Baylor Bears wide receiver Kendall Wright has many teams doing last-minute work and trying to figure out when (or whether) they will decide to target him.

Teams reportedly willing to trade up in the order if the right player is available include the Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers, New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers.

Teams who may be willing to trade down in the order for the right price include the Minnesota Vikings (who currently hold the No. 3 overall pick), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (No. 5 overall), Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, New York Jets and Detroit Lions.
