if they trade the 1st overall pick at best they get the other teams 1st and their 2nd rounder + whatever in the future, which is not better than the pick they gave up for Smith
so no, impossible to recoup that compensation value wise.
What if you guys have a QB in mind that you can draft later in the second? And if they do trade with teams, you would think they wouldn't move to amazingly far back.
What if you guys don't even want the first pick? Why not move back a little and get not quite your 2nd back but close enough? Suddenly it's not such a huge sacrifice.
