I think that is the case. I'm sure some teams have had discussions with them already about moving up and floated numbers. I will say I do not expect compensation to be near what Washington gave up last year to move up. But, some GM might fall in love with a player(and trying to save their job) and pony up the picks. We will see how much the Chiefs get. The Chiefs with Dorsey/Reid are in KC for the long haul. All it takes is one desperate team to move up.
