Draft day is about a month away and free agency has been busy these past two weeks. It’s almost that time of the year where the rumor mill starts to turn involving players being dealt during the draft. After weeks of rumors none of the trades happen. Today we are going to change that as we are going to give you five trades that we want to see happen during the draft.
San Francisco 49ers lands Kirk Cousins- The Washington Redskins finally part ways with Cousins as they trade him and their first round pick (17th overall) to the San Francisco 49ers for the 2nd overall pick. With that 2nd pick overall Washington takes North Carolina’s quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
Cleveland finds it’s franchise Quarterback (hopefully)- After using the number one pick on Texas A&M’s Myles Garrett the Browns trade their number 12 pick and a second round pick to the New York Jets for the 6th pick in the draft. Therefore the Browns will use the number 6 pick and select Clemson’s quarterback Deshaun Watson.
New Orleans land a star Cornerback- If New Orleans fails to acquire New England Patriots corner Malcolm Butler they will look elsewhere for a star corner. With reports of the Seattle Seahawks trading Richard Sherman for the right price the Saints make their move. They will send their first round pick (11th overall), second round pick and 2018 first round pick to Seattle for Richard Sherman.
Jerry Jones upgrades his secondary- After losing both Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne in free agency, Jerry Jones makes a move to acquire a cornerback. The Cowboys would send their first round pick (28th overall) to the Cleveland Browns for Joe Haden. After seeing the New York Giants adding Brandon Marshall and the Philadelphia Eagles adding Alshon Jeffery, Jones acquires Haden to help the Cowboys weak secondary.
Titans land a star Wide Receiver- After missing out on Alshon Jeffery in free agency the Titans trade the 5th pick to the Houston Texans for DeAndre Hopkins. After a disappointing season Hopkins gets a fresh start in Tennessee with Marcus Mariota and company.
