The 9th pick is worth a hell of a lot more than a late first rounder plus a 4th. 9th is worth 1350 pts. 28th (late first round) is worth 620. 97th pick is the first in the 4th round and it's worth 112 pts for a total of 732 pts. Any GM trading down and ok'ing that deal should lose his job immediately.
Just to illustrate, a team who wanted to trade up from the 11th to the 9th spot would swap the first round picks and throw in an early 4th or maybe even a mid to early 3rd to do so.
