Those trade charts are only guidelines, true. But you'll find that almost all trades--except maybe one at the top of the draft for a franchise QB--show that both teams were pretty close.
This one would be so very lobsided that you could go back the last 5 drafts and not see trade like it...and there have been a few that didn't match, but they where much closer than this.
I guess if Dallas was going to hose them they could give them a their 1st and 4th (instead of 3rd) for Cleveland's 1st and 2nd but I highly doubt it.
For the 22nd and 37th, they could move all the way 10 if they wanted, so they would not take that lowball deal. Holmgren et all aren't dummies.
I'm just telling you, the gap is too wide, that's all.
Nice draft. Hey you could drop one of thse WRs anyway and not miss a beat.
