2013 NFL Draft: Everyone wants to trade back

Al Bello

Without a clear cut No. 1 player in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs would love to trade the No. 1 pick. Except...

Everyone wants to move back in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Kansas City Chiefs are no exception. Though it's been weeks since we're heard any legit talk of the KC Chiefs moving back in the draft, I would guess it remains something they would want to do in an ideal world. Unfortunately for KC, the world is not ideal.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that at least five teams in the top 12 picks have made calls about trading back.

The Eagles are picking fourth, the Lions fifth, the Browns sixth, the Bills eighth and the Miami Dolphins are 12th. All of them want to move back. All of them will not be able to move back though.

You could throw the Chiefs on the list above because GM John Dorsey has made it clear he'll listen to any offer for any pick. From the outside looking in, a trade back would be nice. But I haven't thought of that as a legit possibility for weeks. The Chiefs appear set to make a pick when they go on the clock at No. 1.

The problem with trading back is that the more teams that want to move back, the less valuable your pick becomes. And this is already a less valuable pick because of the absence of a clear cut No. 1 quarterback.

Trading back would be nice ... but it's not gonna happen.

(Just watch. The Chiefs will trade back now.)
