How does Gene know what he's trading for?

I've read a lot about trading up and down, and how it's often based on who's available to which team might want him, and what they're willing to give up.

But how does that work?

The Jaguars have the 10th pick. (I'm not going to do any research, so these numbers are totally bogus.) Let's say a team offers the 24th and 50th picks for the number 10.

ok.. I had to do it. I went to Scout.com and just took a look at they're rankings. They have Joe Haden @ 10, Anthony Davis at 24 and Colt McCoy at 50.

So would Gene look at his 10 and compare it to players who are at least 24 and 50 on his board, then decide if those two are of greater benefit to the team than the one player he has at 10 (or an even higher rated player who may fall)?

I'm assuming Gene is not a big points system guy.
