By Rohan Chakravarthi
The draft has been a complete whirlwind in the first round, as there have been not one, but two major wide receiver trades, as the Tennessee Titans traded AJ Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles for a first and third round pick, while the Baltimore Ravens traded receiver Marquise Brown to the Arizona Cardinals for the 23rd pick in the first round. The Eagles finalized an extension with Brown, to the tune of a four-year, $100 million deal with $57 million guaranteed.

Tannenbaum: Keep an eye on this potential draft-day trade for 49ers’ Deebo Samuel
On Wednesday, Rich Eisen suggested that the New York Jets offer the No. 10 overall pick for disgruntled San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel. NFL executive turned ESPN analyst Mike Tannenbaum sees that as a real possibility. Although, if it happens, he expects the exchange to occur during the first day of the draft, with the Jets on the clock. Samuel has reportedly requested a trade. NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported that his do-everything role in 2021—ironically, what has made him so valuable—is part of the reason he wants a divorce from the
