I think this is how TN is thinking as they know it is a long process to build a winner from within an organization and assets can't be squandered in the early stages of the build up.
Exactly. If Hainsey and Antropov are both intending on testing the UFA waters, and each could fetch a 2nd or a 2nd +, the JETS have to do it. Imagine what an additional two 2nd rounders could do in efforts to trade back into the latter part of the 1st.

Any additional picks could be the difference between having more Lowry/Kosmachuk like prospects in the system. Something the Organization needs is to start churning out some quality players at all positions.
