I don't think the scapula have to stay fully depressed the whole time, but if the shoulders are allowed to sag all the way up to the ears, the strain is mainly being supported by tendons & ligaments at that point (like the A/C joint).

Somewhere in between is probably best, not at the far end of either ROM.
