What if they finish last get the 1st pick when all said and done, do you entertain trading it to the 2ND draft position team and reap 1 of the 2 best players and get whatever that team is willing to do to make that happen?
I like Eichel.
That's playing with fire if McDavid turns out to be Manning to Eichel's Ryan Leaf. Not saying that will happen here but I think you take the guy almost everyone thinks is a sure fire #1 and be happy with it.
I know Florida moved out of the 1st pick in a few drafts. Since there wasn't a census #1 those years, I think they still got their guy but I don't remember them ever coming away with anything earth shattering for moving down.
