Personally, I like the idea of trading down if you're picking late, assuming you have some talent evaluators that know what they're doing. I love mulitple picks and there are quality players in rounds 3 and 4.
as conservative as they seem, k. colbert and the steelers play it very loosey goosey on draft day. they call every team and inquire about trades, either up and down, and for every round, to find out what options exist. nothing is out of the possibility. if they need to trade up in the 4th round for a specific player, they pretty much know what team they need to call, within the alotted 10 minutes or so.
