Here’s what it would cost for the Falcons to trade up to the No. 1 spot to land Jadeveon Clowney.
The Falcons have to make up 1,400 points in the Draft Trade Value Chart.
After the Falcons and Texans flopped first-round picks there would be 1,400 point differential. The Falcons’ second-round pick (530 points) and third-round pick (250 points) this year, would leave them short of 620 points.
The Falcons would likely have to send next season’s first-round pick to make up the difference, if they believe the Falcons will draft 30th or lower next season.
If the Falcons win the Super Bowl, the 32nd pick would have the value of 590.
Let’s sum that up, it would be a 4-for-1 trade.
–Falcons would get No. 1 overall 2014 pick.
–Texas would get No. 6 overall 2014, No. 37 (second), No. 68 (third) and next year’s No. 1.
Would you make that deal?.
