Major trade between Cowboys and Steelers proposed

This would cause some fireworks on both sides!

Over the years, we've seen some notable trades at the NFL Draft. What are the chances that we see another notable deal go down at this year's NFL Draft that officially kicks off this week? 

According to ESPN's Bill Barnwell, the Steelers ought to consider swinging a considerable deal that would see them send the 20th pick and 119th to the Cowboys, and receive the 24th, 87th, and 174th picks in return.

He wrote the following about the hypothetical deal: 

"It's rare to see two of the league's most storied franchises come together on a trade, but there's some logic here for both parties. For the Cowboys, this is a chance to move up ahead of the Dolphins and Eagles for interior offensive line help. Assuming that Dallas pushed Tyler Smith to left tackle on a full-time basis, it could be looking to add Graham Barton (Duke) -- Mel Kiper Jr.'s top-ranked center -- to play guard or center.

“The Steelers could stand to add another offensive lineman, but they would probably be looking toward tackle as opposed to guard," he said. "This wasn’t a deep team a year ago, and the days when they had homegrown talent waiting to burst through the ranks up and down the roster appear to be in the past. I’d like to see Pittsburgh add more depth across the board with this draft, and Mike Tomlin’s team would have five top-100 picks if it did this deal.”

The NFL Draft officially is set to begin from Detroit, MI later this week.
