There is little chance that this year's NFL draft will match its trade-heavy results of 2012, when six of the top seven picks were dealt, including one of them twice. This is despite the fact that the top four teams and a bunch of others are trying like crazy to move around. The Kansas City Chiefs at No. 1, followed by the Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles have all expressed an interest in moving out of the top four spots. As of Saturday, none of them were finding much interest. However, only one of the deals involving six of the top seven picks last year (the Washington Redskins moving up to the No. 2 spot) occurred before the first round officially started. "Last year was special because it was the first time under the new system for rookie contracts that teams could trade," said Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff, who is one of a handful of GMs interested in moving up in the first round. "I think that opened things up a lot. I also think there were some situations that just lined up right that don't necessarily line up this year the same way." That doesn't mean that there won't be significant action involving first-round picks this week. Starting with Sunday's trade of cornerback Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there are projected to be five to eight trades that impact the first round one way or another.
