Apr 29, 2023

The 2023 NFL Draft is officially in the books, and this year's edition featured the most trades in history.

The Houston Texans held the No. 2 overall pick this year and kicked off the flurry of trades in a big way. The Texans pulled off a trade with the Arizona Cardinals to secure back-to-back picks at the top of the first round.

After drafting C.J. Stroud with the No. 2 pick, Houston then selected former Alabama standout edge rusher Will Anderson Jr. with the third overall pick.

When the three-day draft came to a close, a record number of players and picks were swapped. Teams executed 43 trades.
