Smith has only traded up once: In 2011 he traded his third and fifth round selections for New England's 2nd rounder. That pick became Brandon Harris. In addition, he has traded picks for players(Matt Schaub for 2, 2nd rounders.)
Since he has done it before, he could do it again. With extra picks(extra 3rd and extra 6th) it is certainly possible he would trade up if he targeted a player in the 2nd. I would say a trade up is more likely if he trades out of the first round(picks up an extra 2nd and 3rd) and then packages the 3rd and 5th for another 2nd to have 3 2nd rounders. He could then use 2 of the 2nd rounders and then try to trade the third one for a first next year.
If I had to guess a team that would be willing to acquire additional lower picks, how about New England?
