Default Re: Trade up in the draft?

Normally though I think we do this when we had extra picks cause of free agents leaving, but recently we make up our minds on players and move up just cause we want them bad. First it was Reed, who we almost moved up and got, then it was Troy, then it was Ricardo(I think). So we are getting pretty comfy doing this. Overall I'm for it as I would rather be passionate about someone and put the ball in his court to perform, than just pick someone cause we couldn't get what we wanted.
We moved up in the second round on many occasions to get the player we wanted, so I wouldnt be surprised at all if we gave up couple second day pics or 1 and a player, to move up. good call chef !
