Default Draft Pick Value Chart

For quick reference (and mock drafts) here is the 'official' draft pick value chart.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Nothing...it's just a way to quantify a vague system. Some teams use this, some teams don't. Personally I equate it to divining water with a dowsing rod....not scientific at all, just a lot of guesstimating...

There's a reason. Everything needs a number, and this is a way to do that. But to say that it's inaccurate is quite the understatement.

Here's an example:

Tom Brady had a draft value of 12.8. Ryan Leaf had a draft value of 2600.

Which QB would YOU prefer?

I would not mind if the steelers traded down to get a few more draft picks this year.

i dont look at the chart as quantifying the calibur of player you get, but quantifying the options you have with a certain pick.

the patriots are the only ones with 2 1st round picks. the chart says they could move into perfect position to take laron landry but they would also have many more options such as taking the #1 rb, lb, or cb available. however, they probably get more ultimate values staying where they are and taking the 2 best players left on their board.

of course the chart is just a tool, and you gotta be a little skeptical if it was, in fact, devised by jimmy johnson (who pulled of the biggest draft pick heist in nfl history). i always thought gil brandt had alot to do with its development and use.

this chart would never work though if the nfl mandated that all trades follow its formula

Yeah I see it as a rough guide to pick value - I have to admit I am sceptical about the massive leaps in value between the 1st, 1nd and 3rd picks - teams in those positions often have a very obvious need.

I guess the proof is in the pudding, as they say, its an idea to keep an eye on draft day trades and see how they compare to the 'chart'.
