You are dead wrong about this. First of all, for a team to trade up 10-12 spots to #15, the chart says that we are getting about 20-50 points too little. Besides that, there is almost always someone in the middle of the first round that teams see as good value. Who expected Baltimore to trade up for Flacco last year? Odd are good, that a team will be enchanted with one of the three QBs still on the board, one of the top 3 RBs, a WR like Maclin or Bey, one of the OTs, or somebody else. We certainly will have an opportunity to get a reasonable deal. The question is whether we take it or not.
