The Full Trade (We Were Given Wrong Info From the Team, Here's The Full Details Now)

Here's The Trade, as the team now reports it to us in the media room:

Skins get the 34th and 48th and 103 pick
Skins trade 21 overall, 84 overall (third round), and 154 (5th round)

So they had two third and a fifth round pick originally, and now have the following picks.

34, 48 and 51 in the second round

96 in the third round

103 in the 4th round

they dont have a 5th round pick now

they have 1 sixth round pick and 3 in the 7th round (two comp picks there)

Sorry for the confusion. Skins still end up right now with 9 overall picks.

It's obviously not the fleecing that was first announced here in the media room, not close, but still a nice deal.

Agreed; I don't think this is a bad deal at all. I'd really love to see us trade back into the 1st round and have a 1st, 3 2nd rounders, a 3rd, a 4th, a 6th, and 3 7ths.

Actually, not that nice a deal, unless one of the guys they were going to take at 21 are still there . . . otherwise I think VinnyDAN was to smart for himself. Is that OUR fourth we are getting back?

(I know it is not, but the reason we don't have a fourth is another overpay by VinnyDAN)

All you have to do is look at the draft value chart to see we got the better end -
we gave up 1000 points exactly, and we got 1068 points worth. Plus, the pick we got might still be there at 34. Calm down.

It's still a fleecing, but it's the Skins getting fleeced. You just don't give up picks when it's the OTHER team that wants to move up in order to get the player they want. The Atlanta GM read our sorry excuse for a management team like a book. Our "brain trust" was DESPERATE to move out of the #21 pick and they obviously acted like it. Vinny couldn't even make the Falcons take the Skins compensatory third round selection, they got the Skins own pick.

what did philly get/give up per the chart??

Posted by: philly | April 26, 2008 6:06 PM | Report abuse

Breakdown from the draft pick chart:

What we gave up:

21 = 800
84 = 170
154 = 29.8

Total 999.8

What we got:

34 = 560
48 = 420
103 = 88

Total 1068

So, it's pretty much even but we came out on top. I take back what I said and hopefully things fall our way.

@Look at the chart, idiots

Look how the rest of the draft has been going and you'll see that the draft chart is USELESS. It is't as bad as people seem to be making it out, but it certainly could have been MUCH better. The FO is terrible.

Posted by: Look at the rest of the draft, IDIOT | April 26, 2008 6:07 PM | Report abuse

Ok guys - here is the RIGHT way to look at this:

The previous 9 picks provided a total value of 1311 when you combine all the picks and the position they were ordered in.

Now, the Redskins "draft value" is MUCH better! They score at 1237!

This means the mean value of their picks after the trade is significantly better.

According to the draft value chart, it's a good deal. The Skins come out ahead. Some of you are simply thinking in terms of number of picks, not accounting for the fact that the value of a pick in a particular round can vary greatly depending on where that pick is.

Not a fleecing, but still good value.

You can't give up a Comp pick; it's yours to take, not trade.

But regardless, this wasn't a good trade giving up both the #3 and #5. I could have lived with it much easier with one or the other (preferring the #5 traded, of course!) but giving up BOTH? No, we got robbed.

I also gotta stick up for LaCanfora here. It's the REDSKINS that reported the incorrect information, probably because the low level media relations person told to give the media the info was given bad info from Vinny and Danny.

Just yet another example of the broken way of doing things at Redskins Park. Then Dallas comes along with a competent management team and manages to get both Jones and Jenkins in one draft.

Jerry Jones must at least twice a year and just pray that Dan Snyder never, ever sells the Redskins.

it's ok, not that great. i think it's good bc we save on cap room and there wasn't anyone we loved at 21. i think it's bad because other teams (eagles) seem to have gotten bigger premium for trading down.

in the end it will come down to who actually falls to 34. 3 second round picks had better turn into 3 starters.

the draft value chart isn't exactly a definitive science. it's a guideline. you have to use common sense and adjust according to the depth of the draft and your needs. i think in this case the draft wasn't that strong at 21 and there might (hopefully) be some value at some positions of need in the second round. let's hope.

if the skins have a bunch of guys targeted in round 2 that they want than this probably works out.

There is no way we're getting any of the Top 5 we wanted at 21 by the time 34 rolls around:

Only way this trade is good is if we get Merling with the first second rd pick! This way, we only have to pay 2nd rd money. Otherwise, not as good of a deal as they should have gotten. Plus, the 4th we got used to be ours, and Duckett is not with us so we don't come out on top. But what's new??

We have more needs for very good players than we do for a single great player, and at #21 we weren't getting a great player anyway.

We have 3 - 5 guys we wanted at 21st pick and will still get one of them at the 34th pick and likely another at that 48th. Plus lower cap number b/c we gave up the 1st and the second 3rd Rd'er. Good Value!

It could be worse, we did improve our draft status in the 2nd rounder and may have allowed us to take 2 guys that push for playing time this year.

Im sure our options were pick a guy that we probably get at 34 and overpay at 21 or make this trade...if that was the case I would have made the trade also.

Also..the Eagles' 1st rounder is for next year. Not saying that they didn't do well with their trade, but next year's picks are not worth as much as this year's

Every team I've watch trades down to get more picks.

All picks are not of equal value.

come on skins fans, philly got screwed, they did not make the playoffs this year and were clearly the worst team in the division. so to get better this year, they got a first rounder next year? doesnt make alot of sense. we still got the "wr" we needed and will be able to build through the draft with more picks.finally doing it the "right way"

Good thing for the Post that Woodward & Bernstein didn't go to the same journalism school as La Confora.

They would've simply reported, "Hey, Nixon told us he wasn't a crook."

we were probably taking thomas at21 anyway and the reasonphilly got so much from carolina is carolina was so high on Otah. Pretty good trade we improved (also nabbing Malcolm Kelly)

Also even though we have Cooley I love the Fred Davis pick, he`s a stud andthis gives us a lot of flexibility with cooley at h-back and in 2 tight end sets. Great pick, still a little worried bout the D-line.
