NFL Draft 2013: Trades in the first-round could be lower than 2012

Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE

Trades in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft could be down.

Many fans want the Jacksonville Jaguars to attempt to trade down from the No. 2 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft to gather more picks, but the problem is this a lot easier said than down. It appears as though the belief is that it will be even more difficult in this year's draft because of the talent disparity.

"If you're a playoff team this year, you have to be laughing," NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock told Peter King of SI.com. "First, I don't see much difference between the fifth and 25th picks this year. And I don't really see the immediate difference-makers in the top 10."

I've mentioned before on Twitter a few times how I think this draft is "flat" in regards to the talent and Mayock seems to echo this. I think it's a draft that's deep and filled with good football players, but there's not really that elite prospect you look for anywhere.

Many fans feel like someone could trade up to No. 2 overall for someone like left tackle Luke Joeckel, but is he really that much better than someone like Eric Fisher or Lane Johnson who can be had a few picks later? I personally don't think so and I'd guess a lot of other teams will feel the same.
