Sometimes that can actually work in our favor. If the supply of 1st round talent is low and one slips to us, there may be a huge gap between him and the next player on that teams board. Strictly from a supply/demand standpoint it could help.
With that said, I think more teams are willing to trade down this draft because of that. So a team could get into negotiations and not pay as much for the move. Overall, I think there will be less teams looking to trade up, less players available that are exactly who they want so the phone may be quiet.
