1. Travis Frederick Draft Trade (2013 NFL Draft)
31st overall pick (Travis Frederick)
74th overall pick (Terrance Williams)
18th overall pick (Eric Reid)
A good offensive line is nothing to be taken for granted. The Dallas Cowboys are a few bad deals away from being stuck in 2011 again where their offensive line was one of the worst in the league.
One great way to pick up good offensive lineman is to draft them in April. The Cowboys have done a great job of taking some great talent in the draft this decade.
The pick turned out to be quite the steal as Frederick has started every game during his career. He has made it to four straight pro bowls. His talent has been appreciated in helping Demarco Murray, Darren McFadden, and Ezekiel Elliot all have phenomenal seasons.

Dallas also used the 74th overall pick to select Baylor wide receiver Terrance Williams in the third round.
Both players were remarkable choices in the draft and prove why trading is so important in the offseason.
