Q: Which teams do you see possibly trading up into the top 10 picks?
Michael, Columbus, Ohio
KIPER: We'll have to wait and see what happens with the top picks before trying to judge which teams might move up. There is speculation that the Arizona Cardinals will ride Josh McCown and are no longer in the market for a quarterback, meaning they could be in the market for a WR and allow Miami-Ohio QB Ben Roethlisberger to drop down the draft order.Could Ben Roethlisberger fall all the way out of the top 10? Maybe.
Most teams in the top 10 don't need quarterbacks, so a QB-hungry team like the Pittsburgh Steelers could have Roethlisberger fall into its lap at No. 11. It is very possible, though, that the Washington Redskins will look to move down from No. 5 in order to get some additional picks, so that is the spot to watch right now. With several big-name prospects yet to work out draft strategies are still taking shape, so we'll just have to wait and see.
