Darrelle Revis was in the middle of what seemed like an endless string of interviews and photo shoots on Monday when Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik slipped away from Revis Island to make a quick phone call.


The call, to a rival general manager, was one in a long string Dominik has made since acquiring Revis from the New York Jets on Sunday for the 13th pick in the NFL draft to gauge his chances of moving back into the first round.


The response he received might surprise you.


Unlike most years, when rumors of teams wishing to trade down in the first round proved to be just that, there appears this year to be a growing desire by several teams to actually make such a move. Reports out of Philadelphia, Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo, Miami and Arizona suggest those teams might be interested in trading down.


And the list could grow as the first round unfolds tonight at Radio City Music Hall in New York.


“I do believe there will be some action there this year, I just don't know how much,” Dominik said.


Dominik is no stranger to such maneuvers. In his four years as Bucs general manager he has orchestrated three trades involving first-round selections, including trading a pair of picks to New England last year to move back into the first round and select running back Doug Martin at No.?31 overall.


This year, Tampa Bay has the 11th pick in the second round — 43rd overall — as well as a third-round selection, two fourths, a fifth and two sixths, so Dominik believes he has the ammunition to make that kind of move again.


“I do, and that's something that we kept in mind as we did (the Revis trade),'' said Dominik, who gave up a conditional 2014 pick in the Revis trade, but no other picks in 2013. “We wanted to be sure we could still be fluid.”
