2022 NFL Draft Rumors: Five Teams Who Should be Active During the Draft

A lot of the time, during the NFL Draft, there are multiple teams that surprise with a trade or two that just doesn't make much sense. Be prepared for that to happen this year. But also be prepared for some of the biggest names in the NFL to get traded to new teams. This year, there's been a ton of movement between players. That's expected to continue into the NFL Draft with many players unhappy with their current situation. Everyone wants to win but only one team can every year.

Here are five teams that could be trade partners during the NFL Draft.

Five Teams Who Should be Active During the NFL Draft

1. San Francisco 49ers

The duo of Jimmy Garoppolo and Deebo Samuel help make the 49ers one of the most predictable trade partners in the NFL Draft. Not only do the 49ers want to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo, but the 49ers are also hearing from Deebo Samuel that he wants out of the franchise. Therefore, the 49ers will be fielding a ton of calls for trades during the NFL Draft. Samuel will bring back a lot and while the market is thin for Garoppolo, he's been a terrific game manager and a guy that continues to take his team deep into the playoffs. He's going to wind up somewhere.

2. Cleveland Browns

The Browns would really rather not have to just release Mayfield. Instead, the Browns want assets. Eventually, the Browns are going to fold and just take whatever they can get for Mayfield. If there's really no team willing to budge, then sure, the Browns will cut him. But I find it hard to believe that teams don't want Baker Mayfield. If he was really injured last year, there's so much potential that he brings to the table. The Browns are going to field many calls.

3. Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers are going nowhere. They sunk last season and don't have the roster to compete next season. Christian McCaffrey has barely been healthy but when he has been, he's been electric. He's a game-changer and any NFL team would be lucky to have him. There's also Sam Darnold, who is on the trade block. The Panthers might draft a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft and move on from Darnold. Expect the Panthers to be in business during Draft Day.

4. New York Giants

The New York Giants might actually be heading in the right direction. But to do this, the Giants need to rebuild. That might mean trading Saquan Barkley and James Bradberry. Barkley hasn't been much of a threat during his time in New York. If New York lets Barkley play for one more season and he still struggles, he'll be worth nothing. If the Giants trade him now, they'll get something back. The same goes for James Bradberry, who was a Pro Bowler not too long ago.

5. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins might end up trading away Myles Gaskin. They've already traded away DeVante Parker to the Patriots and with Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert in the backfield and above him in the depth chart, Gaskin's going to want to play somewhere else to get his. Gaskin still ran for 612 yards last season and has plenty of potential to be elite in this league. Teams will be calling the Dolphins for Gaskin.
