There were 33 trades that were made on Saturday and Sunday, which turned out to be an NFL record for a draft weekend. The Chiefs and Rams benefitted from their trade moves.
The Chiefs were one of the first to deal with Detroit. The Lions traded its first- (No. 15) and third-round (No. 76) picks to Kansas City for the Chiefs’ first- (No. 17), third- (No. 66) and fifth-round (No. 136) picks. Kansas City selected Branden Albert, OG, Virginia and Brad Cottam, TE, Tennessee. After selecting Glenn Dorsey to address their defensive line needs, the Chiefs were able to use these two picks to address their offensive line and add some depth behind Tony Gonzales.
Late on Sunday, Green Bay traded its fourth-round (No. 128) pick to St. Louis for the Rams’ fifth- (No. 137) and seventh-round (No. 217) picks. St. Louis selected Keenan Burton, a wide receiver from Kentucky.
The Rams then picked up a two picks from Washinton, so they could move up to pick G Roy Schuening of Oregon State. Washington traded its fifth- (No. 157) and seventh-round (No. 228) picks to St. Louis for the Rams’ two sixth-round (No. 168) and (No. 180) picks. The Rams also took LB Chris Chamberlain of Tulsa.
The only other Missouri tie came when Dallas traded its fourth-round (No. 111) pick to Cleveland for the Browns 2009 third-round pick. Cleveland selected tight end Martin Rucker.
