There has been an incredible amount of speculation about the Kansas City Chiefs trading up in the first round of the 2022 NFL draft. It makes plenty of sense, being that the team has twelve picks, including two in the first round. They have the flexibility to move around as they see fit.

The latest reports indicate that the team has been calling around about trading up in the first round. The team is doing their due diligence to ensure that they’re prepared if the opportunity to move up arises. Many expect a move up in the first round, if it does indeed happen, to be for a receiver. I wouldn’t rule out edge rusher, cornerback or defensive tackle either, though.

There has also been some suggestion that Kansas City is in range to trade back with a team looking to jump back into the first round and take a quarterback. This feels like something that is suggested every year for teams in the late first round, but really there aren’t many times it has actually happened. The only time in recent memory would be the 2018 NFL draft when the Baltimore Ravens moved up for Lamar Jackson with the Philadelphia Eagles and the last pick of the first round.

Ultimately, it feels like it’s only a matter of time before Brett Veach makes a trade in the 2022 NFL draft. He’s a fan of moving up in the draft, having done so several times in his tenure as general manager. That said, he’s never traded up during the first round. He has also never traded out of the first round and into the second round before. Could this be the first time that Veach makes a trade in the first round? If he does make a trade-up, how high will he go? Be sure to vote in our poll at the top of the page and share your thoughts in the comment section down below.
