Seven stunning NFL draft trade scenarios

7. Bills trade 10th pick and LeSean McCoy to the Giants for 23rd pick, second-round pick, third-round pick and 2018 first-round pick

At some point soon the Giants are going to have to think about finding an eventual replacement for Eli Manning under center. He regressed a great deal last season, even with the vast amount of weapons New York had on offense. That has to be of some concern for head coach Ben McAdoo and Co.

New York seems willing to go all in with Eli for the next two seasons. Adding Brandon Marshall to the mix is a prime example of this.

So why not go out there and offer up a few picks in order to acquire a Pro Bowl-caliber running back as well as a potential future franchise quarterback?

In this trade scenario, the Giants pick up LeSean McCoy from Buffalo as well as a top-10 pick. Assuming it is Trubisky No. 1 overall to New Orleans (again hypothetical), this would leave New York with an option to pick up Deshaun Watson, DeShone Kizer or Patrick Mahomes. Whoever New York targets as its future franchise quarterback would likely then be available at 10.

As it relates to Buffalo, the idea would be to pick up multiple resources as a team-building method. Trading down 13 spots in the first round while moving on from McCoy seems steep. That’s until we realize the Bills would add a total of four early-round picks to the mix. It seems stunning, but that’s surely something general manager Doug Whaley might consider.
