To the "Draft Value Chart" experts

Ok guys, let me try to make this fanpost as objective as I can.

I've been reading since last night a lot of dudes saying we were screwed because of the NFL Draft Value Chart. But hey, did the Denver Broncos really lost anything yesterday?

Let's try a different approach:

First of all, let me mention that the chart doesn't have the same value anymore, since we now have a new rookie wage scale due to the last CBA. But ok, let's pretend we don't know this and let's use it anyway. So here we go:



Point of view #1

First Trade
We sent: #25 (720)
We got: #31 and #126 (600 and 46)
Value in points: - 720 + (600+46) = -74

Second Trade
We sent: #31 and #126 (600 and 46)
We got: #36 and #101 (540 and 96)
Value in points: - (600+46) + (540+96) = -10

TOTAL: - 84 points

Do you see? We were screwed! What some dumb trades! Bring McD back!

Really? Let's think about it better....



Point of view #2

The only player we could have get at #25 and not at #31 (or #36) was Dont'a Hightower. So we can conclude we weren't targeting him since we just passed on him. Then, we can conclude that our pool of players under our radar at #25 kept the same at #36.

Right, so what does that mean?

It means that we ended the first day with the same possibilities of picks we already had (so, no loss here) , plus we got an extra #101 pick (4th round).

Value in points: - 0 + 96

TOTAL: +96

Bravo! Even the chart shows us some profit!



I hope this #2 point of view helps you guys stuck to the "Draft Value Chart" to let it go and think about our 1st round under a different point of view. You can disagree about passing on Dont'a Hightower, ok... this would be a valid point to argue. But since we didn't want him, we made a great first Draft day yesterday!

GO BRONCOS!
