Here's what I want the opening line to be: "Good Morning. We're here today to announce the completion of a trade for the rights to the 1st overall pick in this year's draft". (However we got there)
It doesn't work that way. Honestly, I wouldn't be shocked if they are doing this presser this early to do some sort of damage control, or at least to temper our expectations. If they give us a week to prep for picking 8th, it won't be such a let down when we have a pedestrian draft.
