    in the very next round, round 4 (picks hold less value in rd 4 than they do in rd 3), we moved up 5 spots yet it cost us San Diego's 6th this year and our 6th next year plus the swap of 4th rounders with SF.

    Why would it cost us 2 6th round picks to move up just 5 spots in rd 4, while we charged SD only a single 6th rounder to move up 6 spots in rd3?

    this math just doesn't add up to me.
    Miller was the 2nd pick of day 3. After each day teams re-stack their boards and having an early pick at the beginning of each day is pretty valuable. Hence why moving up to get Miller cost more than moving down in round 3

    The value of the trade depends on which side is making the phone call. The GM making the call to move up is going to pay more than the GM making the call to move down is going to receive. In round 3 we were making the phone call to move down because Ireland didn't want to draft Egnew at 73 so he has to talk someone into moving up so we can't demand too much. With the Lamar Miller pick we were making the phone call to trade up so we had to sweeten the pot to get them to move down. In this game you want someone to be calling you rather than you making the call. The leverage is completely difference. Ireland did what he had to do and I have no complaints.
