Draft Pick Trading

Postby americanese » Thu Aug 18, 2011 7:41 pm

I'm the 11th pick in my draft, got offered 8th's 1st round, 4th round, and 7th round for my 2nd 3rd, and 6th.

I'm leaning towards .. maybe. The 4th round is really meh in my opinion. But with 8 and 11 I can get like, Vick and AJ, or AJ and Mendenhall. Helllllp
Merry Christmas! Soon.

I wouldn't do it. You can get a decent player with no. 11 and then have the turn around. If you move up 3 spaces you lose your next two picks.

The thought of 2 1st rounders sounds good, but it is decently expensive.

I would suggest using this tool http://www.footballguys.com/pickvalue.htm

It calculates pick value, and technically has this deal 1% in your favor. If this trade would get you in a spot where you can draft a player you want, I'd do it. To me it sounds like you want to make that move, and if you are targeting players in the range of the picks you are trading in to, go ahead.

i agree with djadrock. That early 2nd round pick is almost like a 1st anyway. So you're only moving up a few spots. You should be able to get pretty close to the same value player where you are. Rodgers vs Vick, etc. I dont think that difference is worth hurting the rest of your lineup.
