We have seen some rather shocking trades around the NFL over the past few years. Remember when the New Orleans Saints dealt Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks in the first minute of free agency back in 2015? Absolutely no one saw that coming.

Then, last year, both the Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles moved up to the top of the draft to select their franchise quarterbacks.

That was equally stunning considering neither Jared Goff nor Carson Wentz were considered the top pick in the draft.

Here, we take a look at seven potentially stunning NFL draft trade scenarios that could shake the league up big time this spring.

Will the defending champion New England Patriots remain active on the trade front? Maybe, they finally decide it’s time to get something of substance for backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

Speaking of quarterbacks, Pro Bowler Kirk Cousins might not last too long in the nation’s capital. Could the Washington Redskins look to get something for him before he likely departs in free agency next March?

These are among the seven stunning NFL draft trade scenarios that could take place over the next several weeks.
