    I hate it too. Always getting shorted by our trade partners.

    It was the cost of trading with a division rival.

    The point differential when you are the "wantor" rather than the "wantee".

    I'm sure the Redskins weren't desperate to trade the pick.

    I'd bet Washington had more than one offer to trade.

    People still are beholden to that draft value chart?

    Everyone knows these trades aren't in Madden right? Values are not gna be exact every time. Plus it was div rival. I would have rather not given to Skins but if you got a first round grade on a guy at a possition of need and an opportunity to get him you do it.

    If he plays well, the over pay issue will be forgotten...after seeing his highlight film, I worry more about off-the field issues more than production.

    Last year we only get a 3rd rounder to move back half of the first round, this year we give up a 3rd rounder to move up 13 spots...... IN THE SECOND ROUND !!!!!

    How are they gonna spin this one ????

    When you trade inside the division you are most likely going to have to pay a premium. If he is the player they think he is the points dont mean squat.

    The tough thing about the trade is that the Jimmy Johnson chart (the one your numbers come from) is going to be the kindest to the Cowboys on this trade of all the charts floating around out there. The Jimmy chart values higher picks more than the other charts do.

    So according to the other charts, the trade is going to look even worse value wise from the Cowboys end.

    Like others are saying, I like the player, and if they had a first round grade on him, I understand wanting him here. I hope he's a beast. I hope I'm ecstatic about this trade in two years. But that was really expensive. It really plays against the idea to diversify your risks and give yourself as many rolls at the table as possible.

    I know. Why doubt with our obvious draft acumen?

    I heard on the radio that last year both Dallas and SF "lost" on points on their own respective charts. Means nothing.

    Well, I believe the Cowboy's chart has it in favor of Dallas to the tune of about a 5th round pick.

    no but a 4th round pick is a 4th round pick. i'm not expecting the full 70 points back but at least get a 6th or even 7th back for God's sakes. is this too much to ask from your lead negotiator who contributes nothing else to the organization?
