Every year a slew of teams make an effort to move up in the Draft to get the player that they want. It happened in 2012 when Washington and St. Louis made a trade so that the Redskins could draft Robert Griffin III.Sometimes it can blow up in people's face, like San Diego trading up one spot in 1998 to draft Ryan Leaf. However it can also work well for teams, like when Jacksonville traded up with the Bills to draft Fred Taylor, also in 1998.Now that it looks like the Kansas City Chiefs have acquired Alex Smith in a trade from the 49ers, it is very unlikely for them to draft a quarterback with the first overall pick. So what do do? I say they trade that pick to make up for the 2nd round pick they lost to San Francisco. Here are five trade opportunities that could benefit some teams.
