We are now less than a week away from the 2021 NFL Draft and just like every other year, it is shaping up to have a ton of unexpected trades.
The Miami Dolphins own the No. 6 overall pick and would surely like to add a wide receiver to help second-year quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. That high pick could be used to bring in an established WR to solve the issue.
In his all-trade NFL mock draft, Barnwell suggests that it could make sense for Dallas to send receiver Amari Cooper, the No. 10 overall pick, and a fourth-round pick to Miami in exchange for The No. 6 and No. 81 overall picks.
Both teams would benefit as the Cowboys would get some much needed cap relief and the Dolphins would have a No. 1 WR.
“The Cowboys have a quarterback starting a contract worth $40 million per season, and given how much they’re spending elsewhere on their core, something has got to give,” Barnwell writes. “Cooper has a cap hit of $22 million in each of the final four years on his deal, and they notably didn’t restructure his deal when they created cap space this offseason. They would be on the hook for only $8 million in dead money as part of a Cooper trade. Michael Gallup is a pending free agent after this season, and the Cowboys could very well see themselves using Cooper’s money on two players.”
During the 2020 season, Cooper hauled in 92 receptions for 1,114 yards and five touchdowns.
