It does matter where the picks come from, but if you think about it Casserly loves picks for these situations- the flexibility it offers. The Texans stockpile picks year after year by trading for picks the next year and eventually it allows us to either use all of those picks or to trade up for the player that we did all that work for. Just to take the point to another level, we did give up a lot of pick value, but considering the Hollings pick we had doubles in both rounds 2 and 4. So, even though it is a reach to say it, the doubled picks that we obtained from other people allowed us to make this deal and only give up our third pick to move into the first, this is obviously considering that we used our "original" pick to draft Hollings in the supplemental draft.
