Well, I don't imagine JR trading down. He's already made it clear that he feels the #7 pick will get him an impact player, so unless one is coming back, I'm doubtful he moves down. The only reason I can see him moving down would be if he has Granlund high in our books, but even then, the 7th spot is a reasonable spot to draft him, but he may not be there at the 13th.

We need high end prospects, not prospect depth, so if anything, we'll be looking to move up. Although our 2nd and 3rd round drafting has been good, I don't think it's good enough to justify giving up on what JR might feel to be an impact player in the top 10 spot.

Edit: And a top ten pick plus two 2nd rounders for 2 mid 1st round picks is an overpayment on our part.
