It's PFT, so take it for what it's worth, but here's an article about the interest in late-mid 1st round trade interest. Maybe some QB hungry team gets antsy around #18 and gives Rick Smith a call....

Much of the draft talk today is centering on picks late in the first round, where a number of teams seem to think the best quarterback value can be found.

It appears that a few teams that have high or mid-first-round picks are interested in quarterbacks Brian Brohm of Louisville, Joe Flacco of Delaware and Chad Henne of Michigan but don’t think they’re worth taking before about pick No. 20. Other teams that have high or mid-second-round picks want a quarterback but worry that they’ll be off the board by the time their picks come up.

As Mike Sando of ESPN.com notes, the Dallas Cowboys are a team to keep an eye on. Dallas has twice traded picks in the 20s to teams that used those picks to draft quarterbacks: Buffalo in 2004 with J.P. Losman and Cleveland in 2007 with Brady Quinn. This year the Cowboys own the 22nd and 28th picks.

Seattle, which owns the 25th pick, could also be involved in such a trade. Seahawks President Tim Ruskell said Thursday that he would consider trading out of the first round.
