The 2022 NFL draft is finally here, which means over 200 prospects will hear their names called this weekend.

They might not be alone, though. Over the past few weeks, trade rumors involving several NFL players have floated around and the draft might be the time they're finally moved.

NFL analyst Ari Meirov listed a few names to keep an eye out for.

"Among the veteran players to watch on the trade market this weekend: Baker Mayfield, Jimmy Garoppolo, James Bradberry, Jalen Reagor, Darius Slayton, Nick Foles," he said.

He also mentioned San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel, but suggested the team doesn't plan on making a deal.

"As for Deebo Samuel: There is interest, but teams have been getting the indication that the 49ers won't make a deal," he said.

Teams who walk away from the first round of the draft without a quarterback might be willing to make a deal for Baker Mayfield or Jimmy G. However, rumors surrounding those two players have gone on for weeks and nothing has happened.

The New York Giants have also been shopping corner James Bradberry for weeks without much luck.

Will any of these players get traded this weekend?
