This season’s crop of college talent clearly made an impact on a number of coaches and general managers around the NFL. How else can you explain the incredible number of trades that took place during the first round of the 2012 Draft Thursday night?
Roger Goodell had said he wanted to add suspense back to the NFL Draft (cause that’s what people are looking for). Recently he sent out a memo requesting teams not make their picks known public prior to the draft (the same day the Colts announced they were taking Andrew Luck). What he got was a first round that had eight trades.
