Last week, ambitious NFL trades were incorporated into the mock draft projection but scenarios involving the exchange of a first-round selection have seemingly been shot down over the past week. In this week's thought exercise, we explore various strategies that each team may deploy next April. Each NFL team has its own idea of what a perfect draft looks like and no strategy is identical. Some teams have sights set on a quarterback. Some teams are looking to replace veterans for financial reasons. Some teams set out to select the best player available. Some teams are drafting for need. The context is what is captivating for fans of the NFL Draft and that is why it is important to provide those explanations for selections each week. The draft order below was determined using SportsLine's Super Bowl odds, but in reverse order. These are your team's betting odds of winning a Lombardi Trophy this season. Miami's selection at No. 20 overall was forfeited.
