Baalke made a good point in his post draft discussion and it was this: When you're at 30 and you really like a guy what's the difference if you get him at 30 or at 34? If you trade out you can never guarantee the guy you really like will be there at 34 because another team might like him just as much if not more. And with all the trading of picks going on, I think he makes a valid point.
Also we dont have room for more picks. As it is most of the inactive players and practice squad players will be rookies. We'll probably be even cut a few of them..
