Trading away a compensatory draft pick for Stephon Gilmore

So if I understand correctly, the Cowboys got a compensatory draft pick for losing Connor Williams last year. Now we traded that pick to the Colts, for Stephon Gilmore. How should we interpret that?

Let's think of it as a single transaction. In essence, we just traded Connor Williams for Stephon Gilmore.

I'll take that.
