The numbers are the value assigned to the picks. Its what teams approximate value that they have to trade with other teams.
For example.....when we traded up into the first round to get Manny Lawson, we gave up a 2nd and 3rd round pick to get a first round pick. If you looked at this chart and where we traded up to get the pick, it was almost perfect in value.
Another Example......if we trade out of the first round. We could probably get a 2nd and 4th round pick. You take what our pick is worth and than try to get similar point value. It's a fairly simple.
And if you are trading for a future pick, the value goes way down too.
