While we all await the exciting conclusion to the Manning saga, and given the recent blockbuster draft pick trade, I thought this might be interesting.
We are all familiar with the NFL Draft Value Chart. While it is definitely nothing more than a loose guideline (and as pointed out by Fr8Train, it may be adjusted in the age of the rookie salary cap) it is nonetheless consulted by GMs and commonly used as a starting point in negotiations.
It got me wondering how fellow fans valued the draft picks.
So here's the (purely hypothetical) question...
If you had the same number of draft value points as the Dolphins this year (2,272) what would be your ideal distribution?
For example, you could spend exactly all your points on the #3 overall pick (2,200 points) and the #111 overall pick (middle of the 4th round, 72 points.)
Let's keep it somewhat within the bounds of plausibility and put a limit of 20 overall draft picks.
So there you go... you have 2,272 draft points and a maximum of 20 picks... how do you wish they were distributed?
Here is a link the Draft Value Chart.
(This may only be interesting to me, if so, feel free to ignore this and I will slink off in shame.)
Random side note, if I did the math correctly, the points we gained by winning the coin flip to draft 8th or 9th (and then alternating) ended up being about 43, or the first pick in the 5th round.
