"If we want to get out of that pick, weâll [determine] what it will take to get out of that pick," Spielman said. "Plus you have to be careful of how far you would want to go [down in the draft]. You have to know what youâre looking at, depending on how far you go back. Are you getting yourself out of the [range of] the supposedly blue-chip type of players?"
Just for extra suspense, Spielman even added, "There are times we have been in (the war room) and weâve done deals on the clock. Itâs an unknown, but youâre prepared for both ways."
