Using your draft value chart, when you consider that the net of the deal was Baltimore giving up the 8th pick (1400 points), and the 179th pick (19.8 points) and ended up with Flacco, the 71st pick (235 points), and a 4th round pick (#125 worth 47 points), that means Flacco cost them 1,147.7 draft points (+1400+19.8-235-47). Meanwhile, the Texans swapped '07 first round picks (100 points), and gave up the 39th pick in '07 (510 points), and what ended up being the 49th pick in 2008 (410 points), the net cost for Matt was 1,020 points. This doesn't recognize the fact that the 49th pick in '08 should be discounted because it was a year in the future.
Net calc is that even if you give the Flacco deal the benefit of the doubt he was about 125 points more expensive than Schaub.
