It looks to me like they were really concerned with getting Dano just in case any other team was high on him. His low position on the consensus lists was little security that a team might want him.
But, you don't draft the guy you want at 27 (Dano) so you can draft him in the second round ... which means you miss out on the other guy you want (Heatherington) because you don't pick again until late in the third round.
