    Draft Picks for trading back?

    It seems pretty clear what we've gotten for moving back in this year's draft, but I keep hearing how some teams are getting picks for next year's draft. Did we get any for next year for trading back the couple times we had today or just an extra late round this year? Anyone know for sure?

    Nothing next year. All was for picks/positions this year.

    We traded our 2013 6th to SF to get Miller plus our 4th and a 6th this year.

    here is the one fact from the draft where Ireland screwed up.

    We traded down in rd 3. we went back only 6 spots and picked up San Diego's 6th round pick in doing so. to me this seemed pretty fair at the time. until the 4th round rolled around that is.

    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.
    Time for the 'Phins of the future to play like the 'Phins of the past. Bring it on.

    I think picks at the beginning of the day always cost more than at the end of the day. This happens with the first pick of the second round where teams evaluate evaluate who's left over and there is always a surprise or two which leads to a bidding war. I think the same thing (at lower stakes of course) occurs with the 4th round as well.

    I don't understand it to be honest since I assume these people are tracking who is getting picked and who is slipping, so I'm not sure why a evening of reflection inflates the first couple picks at the beginning of the next day. For some reason it just seems to be the way it is.

    A pick can grow in value depending on whose available. In this case Ireland really wanted to move back and either there was another team in the mix or SF was not really keen on moving back.

    Seriously?! I think Ireland and Co. do a fantastic job in moving up and down every year.....that is probably one of their best traits. If there is a guy on your board that is rated high and has fallen, it's worth what ever you think its worth. For example, Miller for two 6th rders is a hell of a deal. How many 6 rders end up making squads anyway. Do you thin Shannahan was high to give up three 1st rdrs and a 4th rd to land Griffin......not if you think that player will make a difference for your team.
