Every single team in the NFL has made calls to trade up and down. The question is will any of these teams pull the trigger.
If Ireland does indeed trade down, that's saying a lot about his future on this team. I think Ireland still has to prove himself to keep his job, and this draft will help determine that. If Ireland is confident enough that he can trade down, maybe even pick up additional selections in 2014, that tells me he's been guaranteed another year.
However, i don't think that's the case, which is why i'd be absolutely shocked that he trades down. He needs elite talent to get this team over the hump. I don't see him trading up from 12, but I do see him trading up from 42.
