I was trying to say that I wouldn't trade up this year. The only caveat to that would be the idea of using Stafford as the only trade ammo to move up a couple of spots or so. I just don't like the idea of trading away say a 2nd rounder this year to move up.
And I would be open to trading back in the following example:
The first 7 picks go.
There are 3 guys left at the top of their board all with the pretty much the same grade.
They get an offer to move back a spot or two (ie they are guaranteed to get one of the 3 guys at the top of their board).
But, I would use the pick if there is one guy that slides to them that is above the pack ala Grigorenko last year.
