Draft boards are set by this point.

That means all that’s left is the jockeying for position.

Adam Schefter of ESPN points out what seems obvious in a draft with no sure things, that about half the top 12 want to move down.

Schefter specifically mentioned the Eagles (fourth), Lions (fifth), Browns (sixth), Bills (eighth) and Dolphins (12th) as having made calls trying to trade down.

If that’s the case, the law of supply and demand is about to kick in, making it harder for any of them to get the kind of return they’d normally want, if anyone’s even willing to move up to the spots they occupy.
