Since there is a new CBA in the NFL, the traditional draft pick value chart is out of date. I have taken it upon myself to make a new one and I will be breaking down all of the trade deals to see who came out on top.
Trade #7 Denver trades the 25th pick to New England for the 31st and 135th picks
Under the old system: Patriots slightly underpay for the ability to move back into the first round by the value of a early 5th round pick
Under my chart: This trade is nearly even.
Eye Test: Another surprise by the Patriots. Both teams get good value. "Eye" have to call this one a tie.
