A look at the NFL Draft trade value chart

What's worth what? There is a chart that NFL teams use to decide what is a fair trade of draft picks and what isn't.

First, for some one-stop shopping on many of the 2013 draft features over at PhillyDailyNews.com, just use promo code F73W.

Now:

Given that there’s a good possibility the Eagles will trade down in the first round tonight, I thought I’d pass along the draft pick value chart that most NFL teams use to determine a fair price in draft trades.

To help you with the math, the Eagles’ pick (No. 4) is worth 1800 points. If a team was interested in trading up for that pick, they’d need to come up with a compensation package of picks whose value is equal to or exceeds 1800.

Let’s use the Dolphins as an example. They currently have the 12th pick, which is worth 1200 points. So they’d need to add additional picks worth somewhere in the neighborhood of another 600 points if they were interested in swapping spots.

The Dolphins have two picks in the second round – their own (No. 42), which is worth 480 points, and another that they got from the Colts (No. 54). That second one is worth 360 points.

If the Dolphins wanted to swap places in the first round with the Eagles, and offered the No. 42 pick, they’d have to throw in more picks worth another 120 points or so. Their third-round pick – the 77th overall – is worth 205 points. Their fourth-round pick – the 111th overall – is worth 72 points.

If you were including a veteran player in the trade like, say, quarterback Nick Foles, you would have to agree upon a point value for him. He was selected in the third round last year, the 88th overall pick. That pick has a 150-point value. But the fact that Foles started six games last year and played relatively well would increase his value.

Anyway, here’s the point value for picks in the first two rounds. Have at it:
