Detailing the 43 trades (so far) of 2015 draft selections
As we detailed earlier today, the 2015 NFL Draft order is now officially set following the doling out of compensatory draft picks at the league meetings on Monday. However, that order is still subject to change barring any further trades of draft choices between now and the start of the draft in late April.
In fact, teams have already traded 2015 draft selections 43 times up to this point with countless more deals likely to occur during the draft itself.
Only two first-round picks have been traded and only three picks in the first three rounds have changed hands so far. Most of the trades have involved picks on the final day of the draft. There have been no trades involving second-round selections.
Here is the list of every draft pick that has been traded so far.
