The Dolphins actually followed this approach last year as it was rumored that they had a trade down partner in place already if Fitzpatrick was not there for them.

Barry Jackson wrote:
Be open to trading down for extra picks, but don’t bypass a player you love.

“I traded for extra picks only when there wasn’t a player there I desperately wanted,” Jimmy Johnson said. “My whole philosophy was there was a group of players I wanted but I wanted to take them at the right spot. And if the pick was too high for a player I wanted, I would trade down and get extra picks. But if there was a player there I wanted, I was going to take him.

“You don’t go into it thinking I’m going to trade down to get more picks. That’s foolish to bypass a great player just because you’re building for the future. If a great player is not there, you move down.”

The problem is that it's a crap shoot. A "great" player is never a gurantee.

Not only do you have to determine there ISN'T a great player available, another team has to determine that there IS someone worth moving up to snag.

The draft is stupid really. The "busts" out weight the "hall of famers" by a long shot really.

The biggest emphasis should be on player development from a coaching staff. Hence why the Patriots and other teams are able to take mid-rounders and UDFA and win Super Bowls.

What Jimmy said sounds a lot like common sense.
