Since it's likely we end up with pick #10 (hurry up May 18th!). I was curious what previous draft day trades netted in value.
I can personally count on one hand the number of guys I would actually have interest in at #10, that I expect to be there at #10. So I fully expect us to trade the pick. Not sure why, I just have that feeling. Whether it be to move up or down in the draft, or whether it be to package with an expiring for some proven talent, I just see it happening.
Given the possibility I've tried to look and find previous draft day deals to see what value a lottery pick can have.
