The Raiders trade the 3rd overall pick and their 4th rounder to the Falcons for the 4th overall and their 3rd rounder.
While the overall value doesn't add up according to the chart I for one am ok with it. You need either GOFD or AB's approval to finalize this deal however.
The chart is just a starting point, not a bible. With 3-4 players available worthy of this pick, we felt the value was closer to that the chart shows between the 4th and 5th pick (100 points) than what it shows between 3rd and 4th. This trade basically splits the difference.
It ensures the Falcons get their man, and the Raiders likely do as well, plus get a upgraded draft pick for their trouble. Meanwhile, the Falcons get back to back picks very high in the 4th, which makes up for losing a 3rd rounder.
It's a win-win across the board.
