    Report: Five teams in top 12 want to move down

    Draft boards are set by this point.

    That means all that’s left is the jockeying for position.

    Adam Schefter of ESPN points out what seems obvious in a draft with no sure things, that about half the top 12 want to move down.

    Schefter specifically mentioned the Eagles (fourth), Lions (fifth), Browns (sixth), Bills (eighth) and Dolphins (12th) as having made calls trying to trade down.

    If that’s the case, the law of supply and demand is about to kick in, making it harder for any of them to get the kind of return they’d normally want, if anyone’s even willing to move up to the spots they occupy.

    Was thinking the same thing about the law of supply and demand ... If it costs us a 1 and 2 for lane johnson no way we should do that deal but if its gonna cost us a 1 and 3 instead because of this thats something to consider

    Pretty sure Darren Smith had "Peaches" LaCanfora on as a guest and Jason confirmed that effectively most teams have thrown the draft value chart out the window in terms of strict adherence. It's there in the draft room for reference, but it's really just a reference, not the word of God.
