We have no other picks until the later rounds. If no top players fall and our guy(s) are safe, do we continually trade down to acquire some more value?
This is what i'd do... If the rangers have two guys that they want, say McNeil and Biggs, and can't decide between, continually trade down, 1 spot at a time until one of them has been taken. Then select the other. I'm no gm but it seems like reasonable asset management.
I'm a proponent of taking the best talent available regardles of position. Murphy is my choice in this draft. He's going to be special.
