    First Round Draft Day Trades By The Numbers

    Just curious to see how close some of these trades were according to the Standard Draft Trade Value Chart:


    Miami Gets:

    1.3 = 2200 (used to select DE Dion Jordan)

    Oakland Gets:

    1.12 = 1200 (used to select CB D.J. Hayden)
    2.42 = 480

    Total = 1680

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    St. Louis Gets:

    1.8 = 1400 (used to select WR Tavon Austin)
    3.71 = 235

    Total = 1635

    Buffalo Gets:

    1.16 = 1000 (used to select QB E.J. Manuel)
    2.46 = 440
    3.78 = 200
    7.222 = 3.6

    Total = 1643.6

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    San Francisco Gets:

    1.18 = 900 (used to select FS Eric Reid)

    Dallas Gets:

    1.31 = 600 (used to select C Travis Frederick)
    3.74 = 220

    Total = 820

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Atlanta Gets:

    1.22 = 780 (used to select CB Desmond Trufant)
    A 7th rounder in 2015 = negligible (7th round picks are typically worth in the neighborhood of 2 or 3 points on the chart after all of the round 3, 4, 5, and 6 comp picks have been added)

    St. Louis Gets:

    1.30 = 620 (used to select LB Alec Ogletree)
    3.92 = 132
    6.198 = 13.2

    Total = 765.2

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Minnesota Gets:

    1.29 = 640 (used to select WR Cordarelle Patterson)

    New England Gets:

    2.52 = 380
    3.83 = 175
    4.102 = 92
    7.229 = 2.5

    Total = 649.5

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Looking at the two Rams trades combined, they gave up 1.16, 1.22, 2.46, 3.78, 7.222, and a 2015 7th rounder (total value: 2423.6 points) in exchange for 1.8, 1.30, 3.71, 3.92, and 6.198 (total value: 2400.2 points). That's remarkably close, all things considered. The Rams two original first rounders were used to select QB E.J. Manuel (Bills) and CB Desmond Trufant (Falcons), while they got WR Tavon Austin and LB Alec Ogletree instead.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.
