A breakdown of trades executed leading up to and during the 2010 NFL Draft:

Saturday, April 24

Broncos collect two more late picks from Buccaneers

Broncos receive:
» Seventh-round pick (No. 225):
Syd'quan Thompson
» Seventh-round pick (No. 232):
Jammie Kirlew

 

Buccaneers receive:
» 2011 fifth-round pick

Analysis: The Broncos added a couple of seventh-round picks and selected Thompson, a short but quick corner, and Kirlew, a 'tweener prospect with enough size to play defensive end but not enough quickness to move to outside linebacker.


Eagles collect combine star

Eagles receive:
» Seventh-round pick (No. 220):
Jamar Chaney

 

Lions receive:
» 2011 sixth-round pick

Analysis: The Eagles dialed up Measurables U. and got Chaney, who was a workout wonder at the NFL Scouting Combine, ranking among the top performers at his position in the 40-yard dash (with the top time of linebackers at 4.54), bench press, vertical jump, 3-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle and 60-yard shuttle.


Patriots move to top of seventh round

Patriots receive:
» Seventh-round pick (No. 208):
Thomas Welch

 

Redskins receive:
» Seventh-round pick (No. 229):
Erik Cook
» Seventh-round pick (No. 231):
Selvish Capers

Analysis: The Patriots further bolstered their depth along the offensive line with Welch, a tight end-turned-tackle. The Redskins hope they have done the same with the two picks they received from the Patriots, adding a center (Cook) and tackle (Capers) to their roster.


Redskins trade Campbell to Raiders

Raiders receive:
» Quarterback Jason Campbell

 

Redskins receive:
» 2012 fourth-round pick

Analysis: With Donovan McNabb now the starting quarterback in Washington, Campbell became expendable. The Raiders, meanwhile, were looking for an upgrade at quarterback after former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell was benched last season. More ...


Dolphins move in to snag Georgia safety

Dolphins receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 163):
Reshad Jones

 

Redskins receive:
» Sixth-round pick (No. 174):
Dennis Morris
» Seventh-round pick (No. 219):
Terrence Austin

Analysis: The Dolphins continue to upgrade their secondary, this time with a player who had 11 career interceptions in college and earned a reputation as an explosive hitter. The Cowboys countered by selecting a tight end 11 picks later.


Center of attention: Defending champs draft Tennant

Jaguars receive:
» 2011 fourth-round pick

 

Saints receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 158):
Matt Tennant

Analysis: The Saints moved up to draft a center -- Matt Tennant -- who was a three-year starter at Boston College. At the very least, Tennant will add depth to the offensive line of the defending Super Bowl champions.


Cardinals go get Fordham QB

Cardinals receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 155):
John Skelton

 

Steelers receive:
» Defensive back Bryant McFadden
» Sixth-round pick (No. 195):
Antonio Brown

Analysis: While Bryant McFadden returns to Pittsburgh, where he played the first four seasons of his career, the Cardinals select an intriguing small-school quarterback prospect in John Skelton. This is an aggressive move by the Cardinals, who hope the big-armed Skelton will be the ideal fit in their wide-open offense. More ...


Chargers go after defensive tackle prospect

Chargers receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 146):
Cam Thomas

 

Eagles receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 159):
Riley Cooper
» 2011 fifth-round pick

Analysis: The Chargers hope that they've landed their new nose tackle with the selection of Thomas, a hulking interior defender who may be a huge value pick at this spot in the draft. The Eagles turned around 13 picks later and snagged one of Tim Tebow's favorite targets at Florida. Cooper had a productive senior season for the Gators, but the possibility exists that he could choose to play baseball over football.


Seahawks trade for another veteran running back

Jets receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 139):
John Conner

 

Seahawks receive:
» Running back Leon Washington

Analysis: Leon Washington, who is recovering from a broken right leg, will be a versatile performer for Pete Carroll in Seattle. Washington performed out of the backfield, as a receiver and dangerous return man in his time with the Jets, when the player became a fan favorite at the Meadowlands. More ...

To be Franks: Falcons take cornerback

Falcons receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 135):
Dominique Franks

 

Rams receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 149):
Hall Davis
» Sixth-round pick (No. 189):
Eugene Sams

Analysis: The Falcons struggled against the pass in 2009 (ranking 26th in the NFL) and will hope that Franks can contribute immediately in nickel or dime packages. Davis, a former basketball player, will be a developmental prospect to be groomed over time for a bigger role with the team.


Out of the Woods: Saints upgrade depth at defensive tackle

Cardinals receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 130):
O'Brien Schofield
» Sixth-round pick (No. 201):
Jorrick Calvin

 

Saints receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 123):
Al Woods

Analysis: While the Saints added depth along the defensive line with Woods, the Cardinals take a chance on Schofield, who suffered a knee injury during the Senior Bowl and could miss all of training camp recovering.


Dolphins move in for Hawkeye LB; Cowboys get small-school corner

Cowboys receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 126):
Akwasi Owusu-Ansah
» Sixth-round pick (No. 179):
Sam Young

 

Dolphins receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 119):
E.J. Edds

Analysis: Edds has the capacity to excel as a backup, likely providing depth to the Dolphins' linebacking corps and contributing on special teams. The Cowboys turned the Dolphins' former picks into Owusu-Ansah, an intriguing small-school corner from Indiana (Pa.) with tremendous upside, and Young, a massive lineman from Notre Dame.


Jets target former USC playmaker

Jets receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 112):
Joe McKnight

 

Panthers receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 124):
Eric Norwood
» Sixth-round pick (No. 198):
David Gettis

Analysis: The Jets add a talented playmaker in McKnight. The scat back from USC has exceptional open-field ability, and his skills give the Jets another weapon to use in their running back rotation. He could be valuable insurance in the event that Leon Washington's recovery takes longer than expected. More ...


Jaguars pick up veteran linebacker Morrison

Jaguars receive:
» Linebacker Kirk Morrison
» Fifth-round pick (No. 153):
Austen Lane

 

Raiders receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 108):
Jacoby Ford

Analysis: A little irony here: The Jaguars were supposedly interested in Alabama linebacker Rolando McClain with the 10th overall pick. The Raiders took him at No. 8. The player McClain was picked to replace, Morrison, was traded to Jacksonville. Morrison has led the Raiders in tackles for four straight years and is highly productive. He is on a one-year deal after just signing his restricted free-agent tender. This was a sound move for Jacksonville because they get a good player at great value -- even if it's only for a season. More ...


Seahawks' Carroll makes move to reunite with White

Seahawks receive:
» Running back LenDale White
» Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson
» Fourth-round pick (No. 111):
Walter Thurmond
» Sixth-round pick (No. 185):
Anthony McCoy

 

Titans receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 104):
Alterraun Verner
» Sixth-round pick (No. 176):
Rusty Smith

Analysis: White reunites with his college coach, Pete Carroll, and both could be breathing a sigh of relief. The Seahawks needed a running back, and White wanted an opportunity after becoming an afterthought to Chris Johnson in Tennessee. To boot, Titans coach Jeff Fisher said there is no reason to ease Johnson's load in 2010. Vickerson being added was somewhat of a surprise. He is a very strong, solid player, who at one point held a lot of promise. More ...

Friday, April 23

Texans' war room stays active as Chiefs move up

Chiefs receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 93):
Tony Moeaki

 

Texans receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 102):
Darryl Sharpton
» Fifth-round pick (No. 144):
Sherrick McManis

Analysis: The Texans continue to be one of the biggest movers and shakers of the second day of the draft, trading down here so that the Chiefs can get tight end Tony Moeaki, who NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks called one of the best blocking tight ends in the draft.


Panthers take Appalachian State legend

Panthers receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 89):
Armanti Edwards

 

Patriots receive:
» 2011 second-round pick

Analysis: Armanti Edwards is projected to take another position after playing quarterback in college, where he led Appalachian State to two national titles and is also known for helping lead Appalachian State to a historic upset of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 2008. Edwards is undersized for a quarterback, and his athleticism and speed make him a candidate for another spot on the field.


The Butler did it: Chargers snag linebacker

49ers receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 91):
Navorro Bowman
» Sixth-round pick (No. 173):
Anthony Dixon
» 2011 fourth-round pick

 

Chargers receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 79):
Donald Butler

Analysis: The Chargers identified their guys, perhaps more than any team in this draft, and went after them with gusto. After a costly trade with Miami in Round 1 to pick RB Ryan Mathews, San Diego gave away two more picks to move up 12 spots here for ILB Donald Butler, who gives the Chargers flexibility.


Safety insurance: Packers add to secondary

Eagles receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 86):
Daniel Te'o-Nesheim
» Fourth-round pick (No. 122):
Mike Kafka

 

Packers receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 71):
Morgan Burnett

Analysis: The Eagles are starting to stockpile picks now. Packers are on the other end, with only four picks remaining, none in the fourth round. Dom Capers demands his safeties be able to cover, and Burnett will fit in fine.


Browns don't let Hardesty slip away

Browns receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 59):
Montario Hardesty

 

Eagles receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 71):
Traded to Packers
» Fifth-round pick (No. 134):
Ricky Sapp
» Fifth-round pick (No. 146):
Traded to Chargers

Analysis: This was a necessity trade for the Eagles. They pick up a third and a fourth after sending two thirds to the 49ers to get pass-rushing DE Brandon Graham in the first round. Hardesty is an interesting pick for the Browns, who watched Jerome Harrison blossom late last season. The bruising Hardesty should make for a nice complement to Harrison.


Give and Tate: Texans grab running back

Patriots receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 62):
Brandon Spikes
» Fifth-round pick (No. 150):
Zoltan Mesko

 

Texans receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 58):
Ben Tate

Analysis: Bill Belichick is at it again. This is the fourth trade-down for the Patriots, who have moved up just once in this draft. They pick up a pick in the fifth round, the one round they didn't have a choice in at the moment. Tate fills the biggest need for the Texans, who had just two other backs rated ahead of him: C.J. Spiller and Ryan Mathews. They had a shot at Toby Gerhart, but traded down with the Vikings, who snatched up the Stanford back.

Cowboys continue to wheel and deal

Cowboys receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 55):
Sean Lee

 

Eagles receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 59):
Traded to Browns
» Fourth-round pick (No. 125):
Clay Harbor

Analysis: The Eagles sure aren't shy about trading within their division. They made a draft-day trade with the New York Giants last year (Giants took W Ramses Barden), traded Donovan McNabb to the Redskins earlier this month, and on Friday, traded their second second-round pick to Dallas. The Cowboys gave up a late fourth-rounder to get a linebacker (Lee) they believe can be an immediate starter.


Touchdown Toby: Vikings score Gerhart

Texans receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 62):
Traded to Patriots
» Third-round pick (No. 93):
Traded to Chiefs

 

Vikings receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 51):
Toby Gerhart

Analysis: The runner-up in the Heisman Trophy voting in 2009 will now work in the same backfield as Adrian Peterson and, perhaps, future Hall of Famer Brett Favre. With Chester Taylor moving on to Chicago, Minnesota had a need for a back to spell Peterson. After trading out of this spot, the Texans would go on to draft a different running back, Auburn's Ben Tate.

Cardinals move up 11 spots to get linebacker

Cardinals receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 47):
Daryl Washington

 

Patriots receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 58):
Traded to Texans
» Third-round pick (No. 89):
Traded to Panthers

Analysis: The Cardinals moved up to get one of the fastest linebackers in the draft in Daryl Washington, who the team hopes can step in immediately in Karlos Dansby's old spot in the lineup.


Patriots make Gronkowski's day

Patriots receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 42):
Rob Gronkowski

 

Raiders receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 44):
Lamarr Houston
» Sixth-round pick (No. 190):
Travis Goethel

Analysis: After losing tight end Ben Watson in free agency, the Patriots filled that hole with Rob Gronkowski, a player who missed the entire 2009 season after having back surgery. The Raiders moved down twice between picks No. 39 and 42 and accumulated two more selections later in the draft. In addition, Oakland took Lamarr Houston, a hulking defender to plug into the interior of the defensive line.

Around the Benn: Bucs add receiver

Buccaneers receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 39):
Arrelious Benn

 

Raiders receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 42):
Traded to Patriots
» Fifth-round pick (No. 153):
Traded to Jaguars

Analysis: Tampa Bay must have figured that Miami or Buffalo was going to select Illinois receiver Arrelious Benn because they moved up three spots to nab the wideout to address a major need. The Bucs need help on the edge at receiver since they let Antonio Bryant leave and Benn, with his size, is a big target who can gain yards after the catch. It’s just interesting that Tampa Bay felt the need to surrender a fifth round pick to move up three picks to make the selection. -- Steve Wyche


Thursday, April 22

Lions put forth their Best effort

Lions receive:
» First-round pick (No. 30):
Jahvid Best
» Fourth-round pick (No. 128):
Jason Fox

 

Vikings receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 34):
Chris Cook
» Fourth-round pick (No. 100):
Everson Griffen
» Seventh-round pick (No. 214):
Mickey Shuler

Analysis: The Vikings aren't going to take a quarterback with their first-round pick because they just traded it for Detroit's second-rounder (34th overall). The interesting thing about that is the Lions used it to draft Cal running back Jahvid Best. As for the Vikings, the team used that No. 34 overall selection to get a necessary piece to add to the defensive secondary in Chris Cook.

Broncos take a chance on Tebow

Broncos receive:
» First-round pick (No. 25): Tim Tebow

 

Ravens receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 43):
Sergio Kindle
» Third-round pick (No. 70):
Ed Dickson
» Fourth-round pick (No. 114):
Dennis Pitta

Analysis: The most active team on Day 1, the Broncos targeted their players and apparently didn't care the cost. This one wasn't cheap, as they handed Baltimore second-, third-, and fourth-round picks for the rights to Tebow. Josh McDaniels believes he can coach just about anyone to become an NFL quarterback. If he can do it with Matt Cassel, who never even started a game in college, he sure must think he can do it with a Heisman winner, damn the mechanical flaws. More ...

Cowboys get their man

Cowboys receive:
» First-round pick (No. 24): Dez Bryant
» Fourth-round pick (No. 119):
Traded to Dolphins

 

Patriots receive:
» First-round pick (No. 27):
Devin McCourty
» Third-round pick (No. 90):
Taylor Price

Analysis: The Cowboys got the player many considered the most talented receiver in the draft, and it cost them just 29 spots later on to move up three in the first round. Jerry Jones is ever the gambler, taking chances on players others won't. In some cases it has paid off; other times not so much. Time will tell if the problems that hindered Bryant throughout college follow him to the NFL. Either way, Jones didn't have to mortgage his new palace to make it happen, and the gamble could pave the way to a Super Bowl in his own stadium. More ...

Broncos make push to get receiver

Broncos receive:
» First-round pick (No. 22):
Demaryius Thomas

 

Patriots receive:
» First-round pick (No. 24):
Traded to Cowboys
» Fourth-round pick (No. 113):
Aaron Hernandez

Analysis: The Broncos did a pretty good sell job in the weeks leading up to the draft by hosting WR Dez Bryant for several days at their facility and talking openly -- and gushingly -- about him. All along, however, they were targeting Thomas, and were able to trade back, pick up two additional third-rounders and still get the man they hope can replace Brandon Marshall. Well played, Josh McDaniels. Well played.

Broncos make room for Eagles to get Graham

Broncos receive:
» First-round pick (No. 24):
Traded to Patriots
» Third-round pick (No. 70):
Traded to Ravens
» Third-round pick (No. 87):
Eric Decker

 

Eagles receive:
» First-round pick (No. 13):
Brandon Graham

Analysis: Throw out the traditional trade charts after the last two trades. No doubt, the Eagles loved Graham, but to move up 11 spots, it cost them two third-rounders in a draft many considered the deepest in many, many years. "Brandon Graham has one of the best motors in this draft," NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said. "He reminds me a lot of LaMarr Woodley." If he turns into a player like Woodley, the two third-rounders will have been worth it.

Chargers move up 16 spots

Chargers receive:
» First-round pick (No. 12):
Ryan Mathews
» Fourth-round pick (No. 110):
Darrell Stuckey
» Sixth-round pick (No. 173):
Traded to 49ers

 

Dolphins receive:
» Linebacker Tim Dobbins
» First-round pick (No. 28):
Jared Odrick
» Second-round pick (No. 40):
Koa Misi
» Fourth-round pick (No. 126):
Traded to Cowboys

Analysis: The early selection by the Bills of running back C.J. Spiller at No. 9 forced the Chargers' hand. With Spiller expected to be taken later in the first round, the Chargers had to be hoping that scenario would push Ryan Mathews, the back they coveted, closer to them. But with Spiller off the board in the first 10 picks, they had to make their move, a costly one, but they got the player they wanted all along. Classic move by A.J. Smith, who moved up 25 spots in the second round of the 2007 draft to take safety Eric Weddle. It came at a cost, too. Smith sent two third-round picks (one the following year) and a fifth to Chicago. More ...

49ers, Broncos swap first-round picks

Broncos receive:
» First-round pick (No. 13):
Traded to Eagles
» Fourth-round pick (No. 113):
Traded to Patriots

 

49ers receive:
» First-round pick (No. 11):
Anthony Davis

Analysis: The 49ers get a rugged, run blocking tackle in Rutgers' Anthony Davis. It's kind of questionable why they felt they had to move up to get him because he could have been there at 13. Regardless, San Francisco found the type of physical player coach Mike Singletary wants to take the ground game to another level. For Denver, this is a sweet deal because they can move back -- which they did again at pick No. 13 -- and still get a player that they’ve targeted. -- Steve Wyche

» Video: 49ers move up to get Davis


Jaguars ship underperforming DE Groves to Raiders

Jaguars receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 158):
Traded to Saints

 

Raiders receive:
» Defensive end Quentin Groves

Analysis: Groves, a second-round draft pick in 2008, has not made an impact in the NFL, starting seven games in two season and registering just 2.5 sacks. The Jaguars, meanwhile, have a full complement of seven picks in the 2010 draft thanks to this move. More ...


Tuesday, April 20

Rams ship Carriker, a former first-round pick, to Redskins

Rams receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 135):
Traded to Falcons
» Seventh-round pick (No. 211):
Marquis Johnson

 

Redskins receive:
» Defensive tackle Adam Carriker
» Fifth-round pick (No. 163):
Traded to Dolphins
» Seventh-round pick (No. 208):
Traded to Patriots

Analysis: Carriker, a 13th overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, has started in 25 games in three years and missed the entire 2009 season due to a shoulder injury. In Washington, Carriker will be reunited with Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, a former Rams coach. More ...


Monday, April 19

Eagles get Sims, Lions get Scheffler in three-team deal

Broncos receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 137):
Perrish Cox

 

Lions receive:
» Tight end Tony Scheffler
» Seventh-round pick (No. 220):
Traded to Eagles

 

Eagles receive:
» Linebacker Ernie Sims

Analysis: Jason La Canfora writes that this is a great deal for the Eagles, who only gave up a fifth-round draft pick to acquire an anchor for the linebacker position. More ...


Friday, April 16

Ginn's new start comes with 49ers

Dolphins receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 145):
Nolan Carroll

 

49ers receive:
» Wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr.

Analysis: A bust with the Dolphins after being the No. 9 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, Ginn gets a fresh start in San Francisco, where coach Mike Singletary was happy to have the receiver on his roster, saying, "He's a bundle of potential, and his upside is off the charts. This guy can fly." More ...


Tuesday, April 13

Broncos send Marshall to Dolphins for two picks

Broncos receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 43):
Traded to Ravens
» 2011 second-round pick

 

Dolphins receive:
» Wide receiver Brandon Marshall

Analysis: A myriad of off-the-field issues for Marshall during his time in Denver forced the Broncos' hand in this deal, which delivers as good a haul of compensation as could have been expected with two second-round picks. More ...


Sunday, April 11

Jets make another risky move, get Holmes from Steelers

Jets receive:
» Wide receiver Santonio Holmes

 

Steelers receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 155):
Traded to Cardinals

Analysis: NFL.com's Vic Carucci reacted to the trade by writing, "Behold (the Jets') ever-growing list of aggressive/risky moves this offseason. For the second time in two months, the Jets have traded for a player with a troubled background." More ...


Monday, April 5

Seattle makeover continues, Sims shipped to Detroit

Lions receive:
» Guard Rob Sims
» Seventh-round pick (No. 213):
Willie Young

 

Seahawks receive:
» Defensive end Robert Henderson
» Fifth-round pick (No. 133):
Kam Chancellor

Analysis: Sims' skill set is not best suited for the new zone scheme Seattle will be using under coach Pete Carroll, which made the guard expendable. More ...


Sunday, April 4

Eagles ship McNabb to Washington for second-rounder

Eagles receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 37):
Nate Allen
» 2011 third- or fourth-round pick

 

Redskins receive:
» Quarterback Donovan McNabb

Analysis: The trade of McNabb to the Redskins netted a high second-round pick, which the Eagles used to get Nate Allen. The Cowboys' selection of Dez Bryant may have forced the Eagles' hand here to add depth to the defensive secondary.

» Carucci: Eagles put themselves in tough spot
» Wyche: Eagles comfortable turning to Kolb


Friday, April 2

Browns, Eagles complete five-player trade

Browns receive:
» Cornerback Sheldon Brown
» Linebacker Chris Gocong

 

Eagles receive:
» Linebacker Alex Hall
» Fourth-round pick (No. 105):
Trevard Lindley
» Fifth-round pick (No. 137):
Traded to Broncos

Analysis: New Browns general manager Tom Heckert -- who came to Cleveland after working in Philadelphia -- wants to improve the AFC's worst defense, saying that Brown and Gocong will make the unit "better and deeper." More ...
