Hear me out!
Perhaps they think that they will be middle of the pack type team with a mid-round pick next year. I'd put my money on one of those two teams finishing in last place with the first overall pick. (don't give me details about why this wouldn't trade wouldn't work) (it could if we spiced the deal up, but you never know)
With that pick or close to the top pick I would trade up to select Jadeveon Clowney (if you don't know who that is yet, please take a look at his highlights).
So would you trade our first round pick this year for Clowney? I would!
