I'm pretty sure the Oilers are quite content on staying where they are
I don't think a team has to give up young talent to move up a couple of spots. That get's bantered around here, but moving up a couple of spots in a draft like this has historically cost only a 2nd round pick or two. If a team wants much more than that, then they really aren't that interested in moving the #1 pick, just shopping it to see if someone will overpay.
