If we show interest in a player, no one is going to ask us if we want to trade with them so they can have that
player. Showing interest at a position of need might
entice Baltimore to trade ahead of us to take that player.
The only thing we get out of showing interest, is that another player at a position of need might fall to us.
Let's say we really want a WR, but we are successful in letting the league think we really want an ILB, Teo, Minter, & the other one. If we're lucky, all three would be gone by the time we pick & two of the three WRs we're looking at falls to us. Or NT, if you wish.
