Only they complicate it by mushing it into a net value of players lost less players gained.

While measuring everything based on arbitrary values assigned via a calculation which no one outside the NFL's front office is privy to. Not even general managers understand the formula.

And most of the picks are just selections handed out at the end of the 7th round, which are only about a half-step above completely useless.

...and you're not allowed to trade them, further devaluing that which barely had value.
