The first round of the 2022 NFL draft sits just a few hours away and the last-minute rumors are flying around.

As teams do their final preparations for the draft, trade rumors are starting to get louder. Unfortunately for most teams in the top 10, it doesn't sound like many teams are interested in trading up.

On Thursday afternoon, NFL insider Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, reported that the Washington Commanders and New Orleans Saints could both move down in the draft.

"Two more teams that are open to moving down, if things fall a certain way—the Commanders and Saints," he said on Twitter. "If a receiver they like isn't there at 11, Washington might slide back a few slots. And the Saints could move off 19."

He suggested that not many teams are interested in making a deal up the draft board, though. "Not as many teams looking to go up," he continued.

The first round of the 2022 NFL draft kicks off at 8:00 p.m. ET. It will be broadcast on ABC, ESPN and NFL Network.
