I say root for your team and let things play out in the draft.

In 1981 the 2-13 Patriots played the 1-14 Colts on the last week of the season. The Colts held the tie-breaker so the loser would get the first pick in the draft. The Colts won the Stupor Bowl, NE drafted Ken Sims who did little to justify his position in the draft.

(the Colts drafted a nobody too, but that doesn't make my point so I won't mention it.)
