2024 NFL draft: Teams that could trade up, down in Round 1

One element of any NFL draft that keeps us all on our toes is the possibility of a trade -- or more accurately, several of them -- in the first round.

The reality is that almost any team could make a trade on Day 1, but forecasting the more minor moves is hard to do; they are often the byproduct of how the board unfolds once the event begins. Last year, we saw 43 total trades over the three days of the draft (a record for the common draft era, per ESPN Stats & Information), and seven of them happened during Round 1. There were nine trades in the first round the year before, too.

So who could move around on Day 1 this time around? Let's look at teams that would be logical trade-up or trade-down candidates and pick apart the calculus behind those possible moves. We'll start with franchises that might move up and go in order of these teams' current first-round draft slot.
