NFL Draft rumors are starting to heat up as the first round is only two days away.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has listed his two teams who he thinks could trade back in the first round and both are in the NFC.

"A team that has been considering trading back, actually I'll give you two, the Carolina Panthers and the New York Giants," Rapoport said. "The Panthers at six, if a player, perhaps an offensive tackle they want is not there, they'd be more than open to sliding back and picking up picks. They have no second, no third-rounder, and of course, the Giants have two picks in the first round. It's pretty clear they'd like to back up from the second pick."

The Panthers are seen as a team that could be a good fit for Malik Willis, but it's possible he's not as high on their board as he is on other teams.

One team that could look to make a deal with them or the Giants is the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers have had a heavy interest in Willis throughout this entire process and also aren't afraid to get aggressive to get a player they want.

The first round of the NFL Draft will begin at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday.
