A breakdown of trades executed during and leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft:

Ravens move up for WR

Ravens receive:
» Seventh-round pick (No. 218): Mike Campanaro

 

Browns receive:
» 2015 sixth-round pick

Analysis: Campanaro is a tough, undersized receiver who will fight for the ball in the slot and contribute on special teams. It's a low-cost move for the Ravens for a player who fits them nicely.


Titans deal for QB

Titans receive:
» Sixth-round pick (No. 178): Zach Mettenberger

 

Redskins receive:
» Sixth-round pick (No. 186): Lache Seastrunk
» Seventh-round pick (No. 228): Zach Hocker

Analysis: Mettenberger offers good value in the sixth round, even though it took giving up a couple picks to move up. There was a lot of speculation that the Titans would make a move for a QB earlier in the draft, maybe even in Round 1, but it appears Ken Whisenhunt is comfortable going into the season with Jake Locker under center and Charlie Whitehurst and Mettenberger as backups.


Falcons add LB

Falcons receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 168): Marquis Spruill

 

Vikings receive:
» Sixth-round pick (No. 182): Antone Exum
» Seventh-round pick (No. 220): Shamar Stephen

Analysis: Spruill can provide depth at linebacker for Atlanta and has the makeup of a key special-teams contributor.


Bucs intrigued by developmental OT

Buccaneers receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 149): Kevin Pamphile

 

Bills receive:
» Seventh-round pick (No. 221): Randell Johnson
» 2015 fifth-round pick

Analysis: Pamphile will likely need some time to be groomed before he's ready to play, but clearly the Buccaneers are intrigued by his considerable upside.


Panthers fill void left by Munnerlyn

Panthers receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 148): Bene Benwikere

 

Vikings receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 168; traded to Falcons)
» Seventh-round pick (No. 225): Jabari Price

Analysis: The Panthers needed to fill the void left by Captain Munnerlyn's departure, and Benwikere should be up to the task. He has the playmaking skills to contribute as a slot corner and will also help on special teams.


Cowboys make swap for WR

Cowboys receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 146): Devin Street

 

Lions receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 158): Caraun Reid
» Seventh-round pick (No. 229): Nate Freese

Analysis: Street's length (6-foot-3) could make a nice target for QB Tony Romo in the red zone.


Bears trade up for secondary help

Bears receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 131): Brock Vereen
» Seventh-round pick (No. 246): Charles Leno Jr.

 

Broncos receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 156): Lamin Barrow
» 2015 fifth-round pick

Analysis: The Bears continued to bolster to their secondary with the addition of Vereen, whose brother is Patriots RB Shane Vereen. Chicago was in need of an upgrade at free safety, and Brock Vereen has the potential to win a starting job in camp.


Bills add depth at RB

Bills receive:
» Bryce Brown
» Seventh-round pick (No. 237): Seantrel Henderson

 

Eagles receive:
» Seventh-round pick (No. 224): Beau Allen
» 2015 fourth-round pick

Analysis: The Bills have tremendous depth at running back with Brown joining C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson -- NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the acquisition of Brown does not signal the end of Jackson’s time with the team. Brown has flashed at times and will be a nice rotational back for Buffalo. Brown was expendable for Philadelphia, which has LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles at running back.


Bengals nab interior OL

Bengals receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 111): Russell Bodine

 

Seahawks receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 123): Kevin Norwood
» Sixth-round pick (No. 199): Garrett Scott

Analysis: Bodine is a gritty player that will fit well on the Bengals' offensive line. He offers versatility to play guard or center, too.


Browns move up to bolster RB corps

Browns receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 95):
Terrance West

 

49ers receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 106): Bruce Ellington
» Sixth-round pick (No. 180): Kenneth Acker

Analysis: The Browns aren't going to make Johnny Manziel do it on his own. West joins free-agent addition Ben Tate to give Cleveland a formidable RB tandem. West dominated against FCS competition at Towson and is built to carry a hefty load in the pros. He can be a workhorse back.


Jaguars bolster interior O-line

Jaguars receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 93):
Brandon Linder

 

Patriots receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 105): Bryan Stork
» Sixth-round pick (No. 179): Jon Halapio

Analysis: The Jaguars continued to strengthen the support cast for No. 3 overall Blake Bortles by moving up to land a good-sized, tough guard in Linder. He's a grinder that will set the tone up front.


Texans move up to stop Nix's slide

Texans receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 83):
Louis Nix

 

Eagles receive:
» Fourth-round pick (No. 101): Jaylen Watkins
» Fifth-round pick (No. 141): Taylor Hart

Analysis: Nix is a massive nose tackle that defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel will be counting on to be a disruptive force in the middle. He was once considered a likely late first-round or early second-round pick, but concerns about his conditioning and injury history might have played a role in his fall to the third round.


Dolphins make swap for OT

Dolphins receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 67):
Billy Turner

 

Raiders receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 81): Gabe Jackson
» Fourth-round pick (No. 116): Keith McGill

Analysis: The Dolphins continued to rebuild their offensive line with the selection of Turner, a raw prospect from North Dakota State with the size and athleticism to develop into a starting offensive tackle.


Jaguars double-down at WR

Jaguars receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 61):
Allen Robinson

 

49ers receive:
» Third-round pick (No. 70): Marcus Martin
» Fifth-round pick (No. 150): Aaron Lynch

Analysis: After taking USC's Marqise Lee with the 39th pick, the Jaguars traded up to select Robinson. Neither of the two WRs are turf burners, but Robinson can be a productive, good-sized complement to Lee. Rookie QB Blake Bortles, the third overall pick, can't see his team isn't trying to get him weapons.


49ers add power back

49ers receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 57):
Carlos Hyde

 

Dolphins receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 63): Jarvis Landry
» Fifth-round pick (No. 171): Jordan Tripp

Analysis: San Francisco worked the draft board to be in position to land arguably the draft's top running back late in the second round. Hyde gives the 49ers a powerful, dynamic 1-2 punch in the backfield as he pairs with Frank Gore.


Broncos score talented WR

Broncos receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 56):
Cody Latimer
» Seventh-round pick (No. 242): Corey Nelson

 

49ers receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 63; traded to Dolphins)
» Fifth-round pick (No. 171; traded to Dolphins)
» 2015 fourth-round pick

Analysis: Latimer was one of the fastest risers in this year's draft and has a great combination of size, speed and athleticism. Denver is loaded at wide receiver, and Latimer gives Peyton Manning another big target to look for in the red zone.


Chargers land pass rusher

Chargers receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 50):
Jeremiah Attaochu

 

Dolphins receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 57; traded to 49ers)
» Fourth-round pick (No. 125): Walt Aikens

Analysis: This draft lacked depth at edge rusher, but Attaochu is one with great promise, and that's why the Chargers moved up to make sure they didn't miss out on him. He's an impressive athlete that can bolster San Diego's pass rush.


Eagles trade up for good-sized WR

Eagles receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 42):
Jordan Matthews

 

Titans receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 54): Bishop Sankey
» Fourth-round pick (No. 122): Marqueston Huff

Analysis: Matthews was ultra-productive at Vanderbilt -- he departed as the SEC's all-time leading receiver -- and is a nice fit for Chip Kelly's offense. He's a big target that will help replace some of the production lost in the release of DeSean Jackson.


Rams snag defensive back

Rams receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 41):
Lamarcus Joyner

 

Bills receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 44):
Cyrus Kouandjio
» Fifth-round pick (No. 153): Cyril Richardson

Analysis: Joyner is a tweener -- he's a bit of a corner/safety hybrid -- but he's a smart, playmaking defender that fills a void in the Rams' secondary and can make an impact on special teams.


Lions move up for BYU star

Lions receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 40): Kyle Van Noy
» Fifth-round pick (No. 146; traded to Cowboys)

 

Seahawks receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 45): Paul Richardson
» Fourth-round pick (No. 111; traded to Bengals)
» Seventh-round pick (No. 227): Kiero Small

Analysis: Van Noy, an athletic outside 'backer, doesn't solve Detroit's issues in the secondary, but he has the all-around game to bolster the run and pass defense. He should be free to roam and make plays with a stout defensive line in front of him.


Cowboys trade up for Lawrence

Cowboys receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 34):
Demarcus Lawrence

 

Redskins receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 47): Trent Murphy
» Third-round pick (No. 78): Spencer Long

Analysis: The Cowboys were still very much in need of defensive line help after taking offensive lineman Zack Martin with their first-round pick. Lawrence is an explosive edge player that can help fill the void left by DeMarcus Ware's departure.


49ers give up mid-round pick for veteran WR

49ers receive:
» Stevie Johnson

 

Bills receive:
» 2015 conditional pick

Analysis: NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers gave up a conditional fourth-round pick in 2015 (the pick can become a third-rounder) to add Johnson to their mix at receiver. The 49ers could still use a vertical threat at wide receiver (and might still target one in the draft), but Johnson fits well as another physical receiver alongside Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin.


Vikings deal to nab Bridgewater

Vikings receive:
» First-round pick (No. 32):
Teddy Bridgewater

 

Seahawks receive:
» Second-round pick (No. 40; traded to Lions)
» Fourth-round pick (No. 108): Cassius Marsh

Analysis: The Vikings tried to trade with the Eagles to land Johnny Manziel at No. 22, but the Browns made Philly a better offer and pulled off a deal to snag the former Texas A&M QB. Minnesota is a very nice landing spot for Bridgewater, though. He'll be groomed by veteran offensive coordinator Norv Turner and can lean on RB Adrian Peterson to carry a good chunk of the offensive load.


Browns trade to No. 22 for Manziel

Browns receive:
» First-round pick (No. 22):
Johnny Manziel

 

Eagles receive:
» First-round pick (No. 26): Marcus Smith
» Third-round pick (No. 83; traded to Texans)

Analysis: The Browns waited, but still landed their man. Manziel will no doubt invigorate the fan base right away, and he has some talented pieces to work with in WR Josh Gordon, RB Ben Tate and TE Jordan Cameron. If Manziel can stay healthy and makes the necessary pro adjustments to his game, Cleveland's offense has the potential to be explosive.


Saints trade up for WR

Saints receive:
» First-round pick (No. 20):
Brandin Cooks

 

Cardinals receive:
» First-round pick (No. 27):
Deone Bucannon
» Third-round pick (No. 91): John Brown

Analysis: The Saints added a much-needed speedster to their offense. Cooks is an explosive weapon for QB Drew Brees and ran the fastest 40-yard dash (4.33 seconds) of any wide receiver at this year's NFL Scouting Combine.


Browns pair top-rated CB with Haden

Browns receive:
» First-round pick (No. 8):
Justin Gilbert

 

Vikings receive:
» First-round pick (No. 9):
Anthony Barr
» Fifth-round pick (No. 145): David Yankey

Analysis: After trading down, the Browns moved back up a spot to ensure themselves a chance at a playmaking cornerback -- paired with Joe Haden, Gilbert could give Cleveland one of the league's top duos at the position. Minnesota was still able to land one of the most intriguing talents in this year's draft. Barr gives new head coach Mike Zimmer an edge rusher to mold.


Bills move up to get top WR

Bills receive:
» First-round pick (No. 4):Sammy Watkins

 

Browns receive:
» First-round pick (No. 9):
Traded to Vikings
» 2015 first-round pick
» 2015 fourth-round pick

Analysis: The Bills are stocking up on weapons for QB EJ Manuel, their first-round pick last year, as he heads into his second season. They boldly made the first trade of the draft, moving from ninth to fourth to land the top wide receiver available in Watkins after dealing for Mike Williams earlier this offseason. Cleveland has greater flexibility now with the picks acquired in the deal.


Monday, April 21

Seahawks add backup QB

Seahawks receive:
» QB Terrelle Pryor

 

Raiders receive:
» Seventh-round pick (No. 247): Jonathan Dowling

Analysis: Dan Hanzus writes: "Pryor gets his wish for a fresh start, but he won't be any closer to a starting job. Russell Wilson is entrenched as the starter in Seattle, and Tarvaris Jackson just signed a guaranteed deal to remain Wilson's backup. Pryor likely will battle with B.J. Daniels for the No. 3 spot."



Friday, April 4

Bills bolster WR corps

Bills receive:
» WR Mike Williams

 

Buccaneers receive:
» Sixth-round pick (No. 185): Robert Herron

Analysis: Gregg Rosenthal writes: "The surprising move looks like a win-win for both sides. The Buccaneers' new staff clearly was not enamored with Williams on and off the field. Williams was arrested on charges of trespassing and criminal mischief in December."



Friday, March 21

Raiders deal for veteran QB

Raiders receive:
» QB Matt Schaub

 

Texans receive:
» Sixth-round pick (No. 181): Alfred Blue

Analysis: Gregg Rosenthal writes: "It's hard to imagine Schaub excelling in Oakland considering the team's offensive line and mediocre skill-position talent. But we don't think he's as cooked as most NFL analysts believe. His arm never was strong, and it looked worse than ever last year. But his string of pick sixes had a lot to do with bad luck, and he was more competent than given credit for in a lot of games."



Thursday, March 13

Saints ship Sproles to Philly

Eagles receive:
» RB Darren Sproles

 

Saints receive:
» Fifth-round pick (No. 169): Ronald Powell

Analysis: Dan Hanzus writes Sproles: "now joins another dynamic offense in Philadelphia, where his skill set as a pass-catcher out of the backfield should make him a perfect fit for Chip Kelly."


Tuesday, March 11

49ers acquire Gabbert for sixth-round pick

49ers receive:
» QB Blaine Gabbert

 

Jaguars receive:
» Sixth-round pick (No. 205): Luke Bowanko

Analysis: Gregg Rosenthal writes: "It's a great fit for Gabbert to potentially reshape his career as a useful backup. The No. 10 overall pick in the 2011 draft has mostly looked like an unmitigated disaster as a pro, but he's joining a great situation behind Colin Kaepernick."


Sept. 18, 2013

Browns get second first-round pick in exchange for Richardson

Browns receive:
» First-round pick (No. 26):
Traded to Eagles

 

Colts receive:
» RB Trent Richardson

Analysis: The Browns continued to load up on draft picks for the 2014 NFL Draft by trading Richardson -- who was the centerpiece of the team's offense -- to the Colts, who were forced to absorb some early season injuries en route to the 2013 AFC South division crown.


March 9, 2012

Redskins trade three first-round picks to get RGIII

Redskins receive:
» 2012 first-round pick (No. 2)
Robert Griffin III

 

Rams receive:
» 2012 first-round pick (No. 6):
Traded to Cowboys
» 2012 second-round pick (No. 39):
Janoris Jenkins
» 2013 first-round pick (No. 22):
Traded to Falcons
» 2014 first-round pick (No. 2):
Greg Robinson

Analysis: The Redskins selected RGIII in hopes that he could end a revolving door at the quarterback position that has hampered the francise for two decades. However, that deal came at a hefty price, and the Rams are still reaping the rewards of the trade two years later.
