Redskins to Broncos. Washington traded its fourth-round selection in 2008, and its third-round selection in 2007 (used to select Ryan Harris) as part of a three-team trade in which Washington received T.J. Duckett and Atlanta received Ashley Lelie. (This was the result of a formula which could have had Denver and Washington swapping 2007 first-round selections.)
Dolphins to Chiefs. Miami (conditionally) traded its fifth-round pick in 2008 to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for Trent Green. The selection would have become a fourth-round selection if Green had met certain performance criteria.
Bears to Bills. Chicago (conditionally) traded their fifth-round pick in 2008 to Buffalo in exchange for Darwin Walker. The round of the selection may change, depending on Walker's playing time.
Panthers to Bears. The Carolina Panthers traded their fifth-round pick in 2008 to Chicago in exchange for Chris Harris.
Raiders to Broncos. Oakland (conditionally) traded their fifth-round pick in 2008 to the Denver Broncos in exchange for Gerard Warren.
Seahawks to Browns. The Seattle Seahawks traded their sixth-round pick in 2008 to Cleveland in exchange for Charlie Frye.
Packers to Giants. The Green Bay Packers traded their sixth-round pick in 2008 to the New York Giants in exchange for running back Ryan Grant.
A Broncos-to-Rams trade was forfeited due to Jimmy Kennedy not making the Broncos' roster. (would have been a 6th round choice).
Steelers to Falcons. Atlanta traded kick and punt returner Allen Rossum to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a 7th round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft
Giants to Chiefs. Kansas City traded kicker Lawrence Tynes to the New York Giants for an undisclosed conditional draft pick.

Buccaneers to Chiefs. Tampa Bay traded two different undisclosed draft picks for 2008 to the Kansas City Chiefs for nose tackle Ryan Sims and running back Michael Bennett.
Buccaneers to Broncos. Tampa Bay traded a conditional 2008 draft pick to the Denver Broncos for the rights to quarterback Jake Plummer. If Plummer, who is currently retired, reports to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before the first pick of the 2008 draft is made, the Buccaneers will send the Denver Broncos their fourth-round selection. Otherwise, Denver will receive Tampa's seventh-round selection.
Picks Used or Forfeited
Patriots first-round pick. As penalty for videotaping defensive signals in their season opener against the New York Jets, the Patriots forfeited their first-round pick since they qualified for the playoffs; they would have lost their second- and third-round picks if they had not. (They will keep the pick acquired from the 49ers.)
Chargers fourth-round pick. The Chargers used this pick in the 2007 Supplemental Draft to select Paul Oliver.
Ravens fifth-round pick. The Ravens used this pick in the 2007 Supplemental Draft to select Jared Gaither.
