Very situational dependent. In most years the 4-8th range is very subjective as to who the BPA is, and you also have to take into account organizational needs.. If you are at the #4 position, but see a player at 8 you want, it makes sense to trade down, as you are going to pick that player anyways and might as well get an asset for free. Here the top 4 (and arguably top 6) all look amazing. I don't see anyone parting with those picks to end up drafting in the 20 range.
