NFL Draft Results: How the Eagles ultimately turned Golden Tate into four picks

NFL: Preseason-Tennessee Titans at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Howie Roseman has been very active on Day 3 of the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ executive vice president/general manager has made a number of trades.

The action started with the Eagles trading No. 146 — a fourth-round compensatory pick Philly received for letting Golden Tate sign with the New York Giants in 2019 free agency — to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for No. 164 and a 2021 fifth-round pick.

From there, Roseman traded No. 164 to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for No. 173 and No. 227.

With the Eagles on the clock at No. 173, Roseman packaged that pick at No. 227 to the Chicago Bears to end up with No. 196, No. 200, and No. 233.

Still with me?

The bottom line is that the Eagles traded No. 146 in exchange for No. 196, No. 200, No. 233, and a 2021 fifth-round pick. One pick into four.

So, good deal? Well, let’s look how it stacks up on the Rich Hill trade value chart.

EAGLES GIVE UP

No. 146 — 12 points

EAGLES RECEIVE

No. 196 — 4 points

No. 200 — 4 points

No. 233 — 1 points

2021 fifth-round pick — Value ranges from 6 to 12 points


In the end, the Eagles traded 12 points for a return value that ranges between 15 through 21 points.

Of course, the Eagles originally traded pick No. 88 in the 2019 NFL Draft for Tate and that was worth 47 points. Roseman hardly recouped the full value of that deal. But he did mitigate some of the damage that was done, so that’s nice.

Kudos to Roseman for also making an effort to get the Eagles more picks. After only making 10 selections over the past two drafts combined, Philly is on pace to have 10 this year alone. Now that’s drafting in volume.
