With the first round behind us, let the discussion of Round Two begin in earnest. And with that comes trade talk.

At least one unnamed team is trying to make a move. Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said he has received an offer for the No. 43 pick, the 11th selection in Round Two.

Something I'll be very interested to see Friday is whether teams will be willing to deal a first-round pick in 2011 to secure a particular position in Round Two of this draft. Both the Panthers and Broncos traded 2009 first-rounders to move up in Round Two last year; two years earlier, Indianapolis did just the same. It doesn't happen often; I recall Bobby Beathard being an executive who wasn't afraid to make such a move. But when it occurs, it's something that catches my attention, for it is a bold maneuver.

And who doesn't like seeing that during the draft?
