NFL Dallas Cowboys First Round Pick Minkah Fitzpatrick

Dallas Cowboys have been making a lot of trade deals these days and some of them proved out to be beneficial. Jerry Jones is a smart businessman who isn’t afraid to take any risks and offers a high price to the players who deserves as seen from Ezekiel Elliot deal. The latest name linked with the Cowboys is Minkah Fitzpatrick from Miami Dolphins.

The defensive end safety is leaving the sinking ship of Dolphins and wants to join the prospering Cowboys side. Since Fitzpatrick himself is a 2017 first-round pick, the Dolphins would ask for the same in exchange. There are rumors that the Cowboys could send out their future first-round pick for 2020 and it would be totally stupid of them.

2020 NFL Draft without First Round

Cowboys sitting out of first round picks

Cowboys have previously traded their first-round picks and got some of the best players like Amari Cooper in exchange. It was just a lucky trade and the same won’t happen with every exchange deal. The Cowboys could offer Taco Charlton to the Dolphins but given his injuries and performance, a deal might not be made possible.

Jerry Jones is too quick to give out his first-round picks which resulted in Dallas club waiting till the 58th overall pick to sign the defensive tackle Trysten Hill. If the Cowboys trade out their remaining first-round pick for Fitzpatrick, they might have to sit out from the first round of NFL 2020 draft.

There are some other options for the Cowboys to make the trade deal happen and they should focus on that. Miami Dolphins are in no position to negotiate as they are rebuilding their entire roster. They have a lot of money in their cap space and a plethora of first-round picks.

The Cowboys should make a trade package of some second-round picks to make an exchange deal for Minkah Fitzpatrick. One of the more risky moves will be to combine Taco Charlton and a fourth-round pick, which the Dolphins would gladly accept.
