The NFL Draft drama is heating up, and so are the trade rumors.

The Arizona Cardinals were all over trade discussions this week, with the rebuilding franchise linked to a potential move for the prized No. 4 overall pick.

With Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, Drake Maye and JJ McCarthy expected to dominate the top of the draft in a quarterback-heavy first round, teams could either jump up or move back, depending on QB needs.

NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah said two teams stand out as potential first-round trades.

“I think the two most likely teams would be the (Minnesota) Vikings and the (New York) Giants,” Jeremiah exclusively told talkSPORT.

Minnesota recently moved on from Kirk Cousins.

The Vikings are shaky at QB entering the draft, but have All-Pro Justin Jefferson at wide receiver and still have playoff expectations.

The Giants have Daniel Jones at QB but recently lost Saquon Barkley to Philadelphia in free agency.

New York could move on from Jones after several disappointing seasons and injury issues.

But Jeremiah added there was a surprise team that could advance in the first round.

“I wouldn’t sleep with the (Las Vegas) Raiders,” Jeremiah said. “Where the Raiders are at 13, there’s a little transition there.

“You get Antonio Pierce’s first full-time head coaching job after he takes over. Tom Telesco comes in, first-year general manager. A lot of times these moves are associated with the new quarterback.

“They have Aidan O’Connell there, they brought in Gardner Minshew. But I wouldn’t let them escape at all. Especially if New England wanted to get out of three, I think the Raiders could put together a compelling argument. go up there and find their quarterback of the future.”

Jeremiah added that his ranking of the best QBs in the draft are Williams, Maye and Daniels.

If his prediction comes true, it could allow the Raiders to take Daniels third overall.

“(Maye) is a little bigger, he’s just a little more robust in there. I think he’s got a little more arm strength,” Jeremiah said. “I think he’s a little more creative as a playmaker and is able to extend and gain time and still play.

“While I think Jayden is a better athlete – he’s an incredible athlete. He’s a very good runner. But I don’t see him as the same playmaker as Drake Maye, so there’s a little difference over there.

“Jayden is coming off a much better season. Jayden had the best season of any quarterback in the class if you look at this year. But he also played behind a very good offensive line and threw to a group of bigs receivers, and that was a luxury that Caleb didn’t really have at USC this year and Drake Maye certainly didn’t have at North Carolina.

“So that would be my order: Caleb, then Drake and then Jayden Daniels.”

The NFL Draft will take place April 25-27 in Detroit.

Chicago is expected to take Williams with the No. 1 overall pick.
