According to the chart, the two picks the Vikings surrendered (Nos. 62 and 93) were worth 412 points. The No. 51 pick they got from Houston was worth 390 points.
That's a difference of 22 points -- almost precisely the value of the 18th pick in the sixth round, which the Texans still own.
Though the chart has faced criticism in recent years for being outdated, it remains a standard crosscheck for teams completing draft-day trades.
All that said, all that truly matters is how things work out for Gerhart and the two players Houston got out of the deal -- Auburn running back Ben Tate and whomever they take at No. 93.
