Let me preface this with some things. I am not the, "let go get every free agent out there" kind of guy. I don't get upset when we don't sign a player I like or expect every player to want to come to KC. But, after I saw what Baltimore gave up for Boldin, I though, "ok I wouldn't have give up a 3rd & 4th for him, just the 3rd." But then I got to thinking. Not all draft picks are created equal. So I looked up the handy draft value chart and did the math. Our 3rd is worth 250 pts (draft countdown/drafttek). Baltimore's 3rd was worth 150 and the 4th 125, but don't forget about the Cards giving up their 5th as well, 30.2 points. Doing the math, that's 244.8 draft value points in the trade to the Cardinals. Bottom line if we had offered the 3rd straight up to Arizona it was worth 250 draft points, the deal they got was worth 244.8 draft points. That tells me that one of 3 things are true. 1. Pioli wasn't willing to give up the 3rd for Boldin. 2. Arizona wasn't a willing trade partner with us. 3. Arizona is rebuilding and just wants multiple picks.
