Over the next few weeks, I’m going to use my mock drafts to look at how a team trading up to get Robert Griffin III would affect the draft. Some trades may seem unlikely right now, but to me it is obvious that RG3 will be the number 2 overall pick. The only question is – who will trade up?

I’ll be doing it in order of draft position and after I have gone through the various teams who I believe could attempt to trade up I will do another Trade Mock — be sure to check out my first Trade Mock Draft Special Edition — where I will pick the team I think will most likely make the trade, explain how each potential RG3 trade could work and throw in more trade possibilities. I’ve already outlined how the Browns would do it — see my take here — so this week it’ll be the turn of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
