We tracked every first-round trade made leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, from trades that occurred nearly two years ago to ones that happen the first night of the draft. They each play an integral part in telling the complete story of the NFL draft.

Here are all of the latest draft-pick deals for Day 1 selections, dating back to the Miami Dolphins trading offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil to the Houston Texans in 2019 for what turned into the No. 3 pick of this draft, which the Dolphins used as a launching point for trades with the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles. The Jacksonville Jaguars are also still reaping the draft-pick benefits of their 2019 trade of Jalen Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams, who haven’t made a first-round pick since 2016 and aren’t scheduled to have another one until 2024.
