How much more is the #22 pick worth in comparison to the #28 pick? The
Jags got #86 (3rd) and #198 (6th) for moving down from #17 to #21. I
think the Pats should have expected to get AT LEAST that much,
especially when you consider that the Jags merely moved down a few
slots, not postponed it a whole year.
The Browns 1st round pick next year is clearly worth more than the 49ers
1st pick. So I think the Pats should have been looking for an early
second rounder like what the Cowboys got even though the pick they
traded was later.
The Patriots did well. The Cowboys did great. If I will buy your $1 for
$2 should you not take it because you heard of someone who got $5 once?
You are trying too hard here on something that seems near universally
agreed was in the Patriots favor.
"Near universally agreed"? What are you basing this on? One article?
I'm not only comparing the Cowboys deal. I also used another deal today
for the comparison. I brought up the draft value chart as an example.
You could even look at the Jets-Panthers trade (which many so far consider
to be a good deal for the Jets), where the Panthers got a 2nd rounder and
a 5th rounder to go from #14 to #25. The Cowboys were also involved in a
trade where they traded up from 36 to 26 and gave up a 3rd and a 5th.
I think receiving a 4th rounder (which is less compensation than all of
those other deals) for a pick next year was a mistake. Especially when
you consider that the Pats already have a slew of second day picks this
year (some of them non-tradeable).
Who would you have had them draft then with that #28 pick? Then ask if it
is more or less likely to be a great player than the pick we'll get from SF
next year. I think there were a bunch of pretty average players left with a
Patriots team that has already done a fine job at filling its major holes.
It's unlikely whoever we took would have been a truly meaningful addition
when compared to what a future 1st rounder will get from a bad to mediocre
