Now JR never trades back because I quite honestly do not think he knows how to do it. The NFL's Belichek is the opposite. He does it constantly.
The trades are typically leapfrogs.
Calgary wants the player they think Carolina is going to draft, so they make a trade with a team that picks right before Carolina.
In the NFL, rookie salaries were linked to their draft position? Trading down was a way to manipulate your cap space. It was nice to have a high pick. But at the same time, you had to pay them as much as many top players at the position.
