Patriots Trade Pick 163 to Packers for 197, 224, and 235

Yesterday, I felt that the Patriots had gotten the short end of a trade with the Green Bay Packers, when they traded the 62nd pick in the second round for the 90th pick in the third round and 163rd pick in the third round. While on the clock with pick 163, the Patriots traded their fifth round selection back to the Packers, while picking up a trio of 6th and 7th round picks in the process.

The official trade is pick 163 (fifth round) for picks 197 (sixth round), 224 (seventh round) and 235 (seventh round). The Patriots have sacrificed the potential to take an impact player in the fifth round in order to get the opportunity to pick up multiple players with similar grades they may like in the 6th and 7th rounds. It's a trade I really like simply because a three-for-one swap is always good business in the latter portions of the draft.

For those wondering, this trade technically is a loss when it comes to the trade value chart, but that obviously showcases just how outdated the chart is.
