Can someone clear this up?

I thought we were getting a sixth and switching fifth rnd pick with the lions. Nfl network reported it as a fifth and switching sixth rnd picks.

Any clarification is welcome.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons today traded cornerback Chris Houston to the Detroit Lions. In exchange, the Falcons will receive Detroit’s sixth round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft as well as swap choices with the Lions in the fifth round. Atlanta now enters the draft with six selections, pending compensatory picks awarded based on free agency.

Houston, a Falcons 2007 draft pick, competed in 44 career games in three seasons with the team.
