I believe those are all the same at this point, but at times they've been slightly different. Also, this chart doesn't necessarily add up when you analyze the trades that are made in real life. I think for mid-round trades, it usually favors the team giving up the greater amount of picks.

I think the problem is that this is just a general idea and it doesn't take into account what type of players are available.

 

However the general idea is that the value of picks goes down exponentially.

I looked at a handful of draft day trades from 2013 yesterday and compared them to this chart, and it was pretty close in every case for trades not including future picks. I think the biggest disparity was 14 points or something... It's a different story when you add future picks in.

Agreed with this.  This chart goes out the window when you take trades like the one the Redskins made to get RGIII.

Of the three links for the draft pick value chart,  the one for drafttek is -- BY FAR -- the best one.

 

http://www.drafttek.com/NFL-Trade-Value-Chart.asp?RequestTeam=cle

 

First,  it has the points adjusted for the 32 compensatory picks added to the draft.

 

Second,  it has an option toward the top of the chart...   simply insert a 2 or 3 letter team ID...    so IND for Indy and TB for Tampa Bay, and the picks that franchise has is clearly marked.

 

It makes spotting all the picks for other teams that much easier...  and will help you construct the proper trade scenarios....

 

It's really quite good.    Props to this website for doing this!     Very smart,  very well done!      :thmup:

The only thing I wish it did was, in addition to labeling each pick by it's overall number, I wish it would label each by its' overall number relative to the round you're looking at (i.e. 3rd round, 9th pick, or just 3/9 for short).  Since a lot of times you're using both designations.

    • They gave up their 1st round pick this year and their 5th round pick this year plus their 1st round pick next year and their 4th round pick next year.  Then they drafted Fields, who many believe in.   If he turns out to be great, the trade is worth it, but how many times has this worked for Chicago?
    • Actually, he is known to the highest degree by Reich. The voice that matters. He no doubt watched his tape from the suck year last season, has talked to Carson, and believes he can set him up to be highly effective.  The **** from talking heads IS just bla bla bla. Meaningless tripe.  As for what Ballard spoke, this is how a very wise grown up addresses the talking heads. No hype, we work hard with a great attitude, trying to get a little better every day, so let's just wait and see what the Team looks like.
    • Yea, we have Cap space, if we don't want to sign Léonard and Smith this year.. 
    • We have a very tough schedule and will be without our best LT for 3-6 games.   This game is week 9.   It may be a "must win" by then.   If we have to have a Thursday night game, I'm happy it is at home against the Jets.  Teams usually don't play good disciplined ball on Thursdays, but we should be able to beat the Jets even if we are off a bit.    I was a bit surprised to see this.   I would have thought 3 days of rest after a Thursday game would be a big advantage.     The last four seasons, teams coming off a bye week have a straight up record of 68-60 (53%) and against the spread record of 64-62-2 (51%)   The last four seasons, teams coming off a Thursday Night game have a straight up record of 64-72 (47%) but, against the spread record they are 68-64-4 (51%)   The last four seasons, teams playing on short rest after a Monday Night game have gone 58-66 (47%) straight up the next week and 56-68 (42%) against the spread.
    • It’s a home game against Seattle.
