    RGIII Trade Was a GRAND SLAM by Snead

    The draft trade chart that teams use shows a pretty high price to move up in the top five to ten picks.

    I move up like the Redskins did was a 1000 point move.

    So, in terms of beating that chart, how did Les Snead do.

    Obviously the players actually selected are how trades will be ultimately judged, but just in terms of draft trade points, the Rams gave up 2600, and here is what they gained.

    PICK 6 2012 - 1600
    PICK 39 2012 - 510
    PICK 22 2013 - 780
    PICK 2 2014 - 2600

    So the Rams broke even just with the 2014 pick.

    All told, they received 5490 points in return.

    I doubt any draft trade ever has brought back more than DOUBLE the points given up.

    Snead and Fisher got very lucky with the Redskins demise, due to the guy they got in the deal getting hurt.

    However, they should be getting more credit for the best trade deal ever in pick value.

    5490 points is the eqivalent of two top overall picks.
