Dallas Cowboys: Leighton Vander Esch

First off, the chances of the Dallas Cowboys trading any of their key players to a rival like the Eagles is obviously an absolute long shot, but trades like this have taken place in the NFL before.

Talent wise, there are numerous members from Dallas that could help Philadelphia in a big way, with Amari Cooper immediately coming to mind at wide receiver.

But since the Cowboys are never going to trade away a star player they just recently rewarded with a hefty new contract, a dream trade target for a list like this regarding the Eagles should be Leighton Vander Esch.

Believe it or not, Vander Esch happens to be another top linebacker from that strong class in 2018 who was selected late in the first round by Dallas, and wasted little time making an impact at the NFL level.

Leading up to the draft, there were some concerns surrounding Vander Esch being able to make the successful transition to the NFL coming from Boise State, but watching him earn Pro Bowl honors as a rookie shows how special of a player he really is.

Seeing Vander Esch miss the end of last season due to a neck injury was difficult to watch after Dallas missed out on the playoffs, but hopefully the linebacker is back to his usual ways in no time.
