By DRAFTMETRICS count there were 26 trades between Thursday and Saturday. The trades can be categorized as follows:
If you have read any of our prior analyses you already know that DRAFTMETRICS breaks the draft into seven Value Groups (picks 1-13, 14-40, 41-66, 67-86, 87-149, 150-189 and 190+) and each selection within a Value Group has equal value based on historic results. Selection #13, for example, has the same value as selection #1. Therefore, if a team trades within a Value Group any premium received in the form of an additional draft choice or choices is “gravy” as the team trading down did not really give up anything. Below, each trade is summarized, with the type of trade identified by the following abbreviations.
