GREEN BAY – If you’re Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst and you want to make a trade in the first round, you pretty much know what it’s going to take on paper to move around the board.

But what’s on paper and what it really takes to move could be two different things, especially if he finds himself in competition with another team for the same spot. A move that might call for a third-round pick to be thrown in on the draft trade value chart, could wind up costing more.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the value of Gutekunst’s picks, the cost of moving up to selected spots in the top 13 and possible compensation for moving back.

First, the value of Gutekunst’s 12 picks (2001.9 total value):

» No. 14 (1st round) – 1,100 points

» No. 45 (2nd round) – 450 points

» No. 76 (3rd round) – 210 points

» No. 101 (4th round) – 96 points

» No. 133 (4th round) – 39 points

» No. 138 (5th round) – 36.5 points

» No. 172 (5th round) – 22.2 points

» No. 174 (5th round) – 21.4 points

» No. 186 (6th round) – 16.6 points

» No. 207 (6th round) – 8.2 points

» No. 232 (7th round) – 1 point

» No. 239 (7th round) – 1 point

Now, let’s look at a few of the points values for first-round picks in front of the Packers:

» No. 2 (NY Giants) – 2,600 points

» No. 6 (Indianapolis) – 1,600 points

» No. 9 (San Francisco) – 1,350 points

» No. 10 (Oakland) – 1,300 points

» No. 11 (Miami) – 1,250 points

» No. 12 (Buffalo) – 1,200 points

Now, let’s look at what the draft-value chart says the Packers would have to give up to get to those selections:

» No. 2 – (1,500-point difference) – No. 14 (1st), No. 45 (2nd), 1st-rounder in ’19.

» No. 6 – (500-point difference) – No. 45 (2nd), No. 138 (5th), No. 186 (6th)

» No. 9 – (250-point difference) – No. 76 (3rd), No. 133 (4th)

» No. 10 – (200-point difference) – No. 76 (3rd)

» No. 11 – (150-point difference) – No. 76 (3rd); and receive No. 123 (4th) and No. 209 (6th) from Miami; OR No. 101 (4th), No. 133 (4th), No. 186 (6th).

» No. 12 – (100-point difference) – No. 101 (4th).

If the Packers decide to move back, here is what they might receive from teams behind them:

» No. 16 – (100-point difference) – No. 83 (3rd); and send No. 133 (4th) and No. 138 (4th) to Baltimore.

» No. 18 – (200-point difference) – 2019 2nd-rounder in ’19 from Seattle (no picks in 2nd or 3rd rounds this year)

» No. 19– (225-point difference) – No. 81 (3rd) and No. 137 (4th) from Dallas.

» No. 23 – (340-point difference) – No. 43 (2nd); and send No. 101 (4th) and No. 133 (4th) to New England; OR No. 63 (2nd) and No. 95 (3rd) and send No. 133 (4th) and No. 186 (6th) to New England.
