The NFL Draft is over a month away, but several teams decided to get some draft chaos started a bit early.
Friday brought news that the San Francisco 49ers were trading up to the No. 3 overall pick. The Miami Dolphins moved from No. 3 to No. 12 and added some first-round picks in the process. Then the Philadelphia Eagles got involved, swapping No. 6 for No. 12 to get the Dolphins back up into the top-10.
This all happened in a matter of minutes and the reactions on Twitter were gold.
Twitter reactions to all the trade chaos
Twitter can be a fun place, sometimes, and the instant reactions were fun to watch as so many teams were affected by the moves.
The 49ers may be trading Jimmy Garoppolo, the Dolphins have an insane amount of draft capital that could be used in a deal for Deshaun Watson, and the Eagles appear to be sticking with Jalen Hurts in 2021. Meanwhile, teams all around the league will be drawn into the Garoppolo trade rumors.
All this drama went down on a Friday in March. The madness should only continue over the following month and also on the first night of the draft. Maybe these blockbuster trades are only the beginning.
All three teams involved likely believe they got the best deal. Seeing how this plays out in the near future could make these trades an important part of NFL history.
