Denver and Tampa Bay made a similar move by just swapping fourth rounders. You're not going to get a third round pick for making that trade.
Just because you can find one example doesn't make it truth, my friend. I am correct, that is the base scale for that trade. Of course there are variences in it depending on who's on the board, how deep the draft is, and how badly a team wants a players..
Here are a few examples:2010 draft
Cowboys get 55th pick
Eagles get 59 and 125 (4th)
That's a 4th for 4 spots in the late 2nd!
Broncos receive pick 22
Patriots receive 24 and 113 (mid 4th)
That's a mid 4th for 2 spots, and we're talking about 5 spots in the 1st round? I think a late 3rd, early 4th is pretty much accurate.2011 Draft
Browns receive pick 21
Chiefs receive 27 and 70
So, 1 extra spot 6 instead of 5, and a few picks earlier warrants a top 10 pick in the 3rd round. I think it's pretty clear that 5 spots from 25-30 would easily get a late 3rd or early 4th as I suggested.
