Last year, the Jets traded the 26th and 230th picks (combined value according to the Draft Pick Value Chart: 702.4 points ) in the draft to the Raiders for Doug Jolley and the 47th, 182nd, and 185th picks (combined value: 478 points). The difference, 224.4 points, is right about the value of pick #73, the ninth selection in the third round. Today, the Jets traded Jolley to Tampa Bay for an undisclosed draft pick. Let's just say that "undisclosed" doesn't normally mean something better than the ninth selection of the third round.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
