NFL Draft Pick Trade Values: SIS Develops a New Process

In an article by Sports Info Solutions’ Stephen Polacheck, there is another way to view NFL Draft Pick values.

“About 30 years ago, Jimmy Johnson devised a “draft trade chart” for the Dallas Cowboys, in efforts for the team to immediately evaluate draft pick trade offers. This chart became wildly popular, is still referenced by many, and has inspired a handful of spin-off iterations. Since the chart was made, four teams joined the league, the rules have changed dramatically, coaches are much more creative, and the NFL Draft process has improved immensely.

Instead of looking at the perceived value of picks, what if trade value came from the value that NFL teams actually got from those selections?” Polacheck asks.
