The NFL Draft seems to be getting more and more fun with each passing year, with all 32 teams more willing to drive and deal to improve their draft standings.

The 2023 NFL Draft saw a record number of trades, with 41 deals made during the annual event, according to PFF’s Brad Spielberger, which is remarkable to say the least.

It seemed like every team in the league was willing to talk about making deals and that may be a testament to many thinking it was a weak draft class so teams weren’t sold on certain players and felt it don’t mind to barter or to discuss options at least.

Well before the 2023 NFL Draft got underway last Thursday, the Chicago Bears traded the No. 1 overall pick to the Carolina Panthers, who ultimately turned out to be former Alabama Crimson Tide star quarterback Bryce Young.

While that was a huge trade, the biggest surprise deal on draft day was the Houston Texans trading to No. 3 to trade linebacker Will Anderson Jr. from the University of Alabama.

The Texans had just drafted Ohio State University’s CJ Stroud at No. 2 overall to become the new face of the franchise’s team, and no one expected Houston to immediately return to work and sign a deal with the Arizona Cardinals for the next pick. .

Perhaps this design will set the standard for years to come as trades become more common in a league where trades rarely occurred in the past.
