If we trade with the right team, you'd have to assume we would have a first rounder next year in the 5-15 range along with our own first rounder. It's perhaps the easiest way to move up in a draft. You don't lost any assests, while you move up 10-15 spots depending on the team you trade with.
Not gonna happen - your not gonna land a top 5 or 10 pick next year for a 26th this year. It would have to be a good team that assumes a 20-30 like a NJ who gets decimated out of nowhere. It's not like Columbus, Pitt, Chi, or WSH are gonna offer their first next year to pick a guy ranked 25th this year. It sounds great in theory but its not realistic.
