Under what circumstance would you opt in or opt out of a certain draft year? I'm curious.
Lets take this year for example. I could probably say with 100% certainty that the Spits would opt to lose their 2014 1st rounder (granted they met the conditions in order to choose this year).

Say the Spits didn't suck last year and would pick in the lower 1/2 of the draft. Based on projections for the following season, they may elect to lose their 2013 first rounder with the hopes they could be a championship contender then use their 2014 1st rounder to help kickstart the inevitable rebuild after the run year.
