Dictator’s Decree: “This transaction has ‘special teams fodder’ written all over it. Moving on…” – March 2019

As the benevolent dictator I have more important things to do than break down the minutiae of trades involving sixth and seventh round picks. As I have written in TDI’s Glorious Constitution, “Article 8: Picks in Rounds 5-7 rarely yield value, so use these to trade up for studs this year or a better pick next year.” It takes work leading an island that has the world’s fastest-growing economy, highest happiness index, and the most NFL draft nerds per square mile, so I’m just cranking this one out as fast as I can. Now, back to governing…

Trade #18.33 – Assets Exchanged
Chiefs receive: No. 198 (6th Rd.)
Patriots receive: No. 233 (7th Rd.), No. 243 (7th Rd.)

2018 Year-End Summary
After the 2018 season this trade has yielded little benefit for either team, but kudos to the Patriots for landing Keion Crossen in the 7th round. Players taken toward the end of the draft rarely pan out, but Crossen made the veteran Patriots roster and appeared in 11 games. Plus, New England has an additional 7th round pick in 2019 which they can package in another deal, so advantage to the Evil Empire.

Notes on statistics:
1. Approximate Value(“AV”) and Snap Counts (“Snap”) per Football Reference.
