The constant want to tank for draft picks on HFBoards should never realistically be wanting.

You want your team to succeed to it's best abilities always. Your core progressing and your youth developing. You want to develop a winning culture.

Also, diving for picks may seem sexy when you're not succeeding but what happens if that group struggles:
Do you re-dive again? Do you become the next CBJ? Do you want to become a feeder team or farm team for the contenders?
You have to look at how the rest of the core ages. Sure you get a great top prospect, but by the time that prospect starts taking significant minutes, how many of your core players have already begun to regress?
