Dallas Cowboys Trade With Green Bay

The Packers offer an interesting option for a trade back scenario. Given that Mike McCarthy knows the ownership well, he could leverage some of that for a trade back scenario. The Dallas Cowboys’ pick is valued at 950 points. That would mean for the Packers to move up and take the heir apparent to Aaron Rodgers, they would give up their first, second, fourth, and a late sixth. This would equal 949 points. In draft pick numbers that would be the Dallas Cowboys going from 17 to 30, and collect 62, 136, and 208.

This move would allow the Cowboys to move down to the end of the first which would keep a fifth year option on whomever they pick and not have to reach for a corner, edge, or safety. Using the rest of the picks the Cowboys could move up in the second or third to grab more depth at wide receiver or whichever they didn’t grab in the first.

This is an even trade and if a quarterback or offensive tackle is there, the Packers could certainly use either. This would let the Packers jump Minnesota at 22 and 25 and give them the ability to grab a player they think the Vikings may want. It may be a little far back, but certainly one to consider.
