The Value Gained In Trade Up!

Who would have thought Jeff Ireland was such a shrewd negotiator?

His orchestration of trading up from pick #12 to #3 is mathematically remarkable!

Using the Draft Pick Value Chart, Ireland saved the Dolphins 520 points which could have been our picks #77, 82, 111, 146, 217, 224 plus either next year's 5th or 6th round pick plus possibly next year's 7th round pick, depending on what picks they are.

Here are the point values of all the picks:
We got #3 = 2200
We gave up #12= 1200 and #42= 480
Total given up= 1680
Savings of 520 points or these picks:
#77= 205
#82= 180
#111= 72
#146= 33
#217= 4.6
#224= 2
Total= 490.6
Then you can add in another 29.4 points out of these:
Next year's 5th rounder is worth between 47 and 27.4 points
Next years 6th rounder is worth between 27 and 14.6 points
Next years 7th rounder is worth between 14.2 and 2 points

We could easily had been left with only this year's picks # 54 and compensatory picks #166 and 250, which you are not able to trade.

So Ireland saved 7 picks and his job.
