I don't think this is the right mindset at all. If we go into the draft thinking that we need to do everything to move up, it's a recipe for getting screwed. We may not be ABLE to move up without overpaying, and overpaying doesn't do us any good. If we go in and everyone thinks we're desperate to move up in the draft, they're going to gouge us.

If the right deal to move up comes along, take it, but let's not pay a king's ransom just because we think we're obligated to move up. We're not obligated to move up. We're not even obligated to refuse to consider moving down if the right deal comes along. The draft is about maximizing the value of your assets, and you can do that either by staying where you are, moving up, or moving down. We should be open to all three but not desperate to do any of them.
