Um no, you don't want the party you're dealing with to know that you are dead set on getting rid of your pick. They will know you are desperate to get rid of it and will offer less compensation. You want them to think you would consider getting rid of it for the right price, but you're not desperate. It's a pretty basic concept that applies with selling anything. There's no RG3 in this draft so that's a pretty poor example, and if teams know you just want out of the spot they will start the bidding lower.
