Arizona Cardinals could be in a tough market to trade back come Thursday

NFL: Washington Football Team at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2021 NFL Draft only two days away, we have talked about the Arizona Cardinals wanting to move down heading into the draft.

The question becomes, how far down will they have to go to get a top 100 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft?

Peter King talked about the bottle neck of teams trying to do the same:

A record number of teams want to go down. “I’d say 35 to 75 is the hotbed of this draft,” one GM trying to move down from the twenties told me Sunday. I’m projecting a couple of small trades in my mock. I just couldn’t find evidence that QB-needy teams like New England, Washington and Chicago would move up from mid-round and kill their ’22 (and maybe ’23) drafts to move up for a passer.

That means that teams likely won’t be trying to go up, and if they are they may low-ball the teams they are trying to move up with.

One thing I have heard is that the Cleveland Browns have looked at the cost of moving up, funny enough King has them moving up with the Indianapolis Colts.

If the Browns want to move up to 16, would it take both third rounders or will the market allow them to pay only a third and fourth? If they offer 1.26, 3.89, and 4.110 are you taking that?
