The first round of this year’s NFL Draft was one of the most unpredictable in recent memory.

That unpredictability was due in part to the numerous trades made throughout the night.

Teams across the league got in on the action, with some even making trades to move as little as one spot.

According to a report this morning we could have even seen more as 3 teams found themselves trying to trade back into round 1 at the end of the night.

Now it appears the rampant trading is going to continue into day 2 of the draft.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Pittsburgh Steelers are mulling multiple offers they’ve received for the 1st pick in the 2nd round of the draft.

There are plenty of players that could the reason teams want to trade up for that pick right now.

The most obvious is Will Levis, who was expected to be taken 4th overall and ended up making it through the first round without being selected.

There is also Michael Mayer, who some believed to be this class’ best tight end despite Dalton Kincaid being taken first.

Joey Porter Jr also still finds himself on draft boards despite being projected to be selected in the middle of the first round.

Porter Jr could actually end up being the reason the Pittsburgh Steelers choose not to accept an offer for the 32nd pick.

The Steelers need a corner back and they’d be getting a good one in Porter Jr. The Penn State product also already has a connection to the franchise as his father was a fan-favorite when he played linebacker for the Steelers.

With an hour left until the start of day 2 of the NFL Draft, it looks like there could already be a big move on its way.
