2022 NFL draft day notes: possible trades, Jameson Williams rising

Almost there

• As usual, what’ll likely lead to trades tonight is when the draft approaches where the cliff is at certain positions. And a lot of my conversations over the last 24 hours have centered on that, in discussing what teams might move up for. Three positions have stood out—corner, pass rusher and receiver. So here’s a look at where the pressure points for those spots might be …

Corner: The first two, in some order, will likely be Cincinnati’s Sauce Gardner and LSU’s Derek Stingley Jr. There’s a drop-off after that, then comes Washington’s Trent McDuffie. Then, maybe a bigger drop-off before the next group (Florida’s Kaiir Elam, Washington’s Kyler Gordon, Clemson’s Andrew Booth). So I’d think if someone’s going to take a swing, it might be to get in front of the Seahawks, if Stingley’s still there in the Nos. 6–8 range.
