Draft Pick Value Chart

 

Each year during the draft there are trades that make you wonder how on earth they came up with that deal. We’ve seen teams trade away every pick they had to move up and take one player. While some moves are out of right field, most stick close to this formula. Each team has a chart to show the value of a pick.

The Niners front office will be working the phones on possible trade up, trade down scenarios trying to get the most talent they possibly can out of this draft, all without mortgaging off the future drafts.

 

 

The pick number is in bold with the value to the right.

Certain players can drive up the value of a pick by being available at the time of the selection.

For example: The Redskins gave up 3 firsts (including the 6th overall this year) and a second (39th overall) to the Rams for the #2 pick in the draft. According to the chart the difference is 490 points for this year’s picks. On future draft picks, it’s always best to figure them as a late pick for that round. So 1 future 1st covers the value of the trade. So what about the extra 1st on top of that? That is the player difference. The demand for RG III created a market for St. Louis great enough to get  them an extra 1st rounder in the future.

Is it a bad trade by the Redskins? By point value yes, but when you are a team needing a quarterback giving away a first round pick is worth getting your quarterback of the future. If you think the Redskins lost on the trade, just look at Cleveland and Miami. Both will go into next year not set at quarterback and not much to look forward to. The Redskins gained a quarterback and were only 4 games out of the division last year.

So for those wondering if the 49ers could move up in the first round to grab a Trent Richardson or to grab OG David DeCastro it would take them falling to the late teens and cost us our 1st and 2nd rounders. Any higher then that and we’d be trading future high picks.
