1. Be patient
It sounds obvious but is often forgotten. The first 3-4 rounds only help load up on studs and “win now” kind of guys. Typically, staying put or trading back and acquiring depth is the way to go. Typically, take your 1st and 2nd round picks. Get those “blue chip” caliber players, unless absolutely blown away with an offer. After the first few rounds try trading down some and stack picks.
