1. Trading pick 26 for Stefon Diggs

When the draft starts, no one can predict what will happen, who will get picked, or who will get traded.

During the 2022 NFL Draft, no one saw AJ Brown being dealt to the Eagles for the 18th and 101st overall picks. At the time, the Titans iterated they weren't dealing Brown during the draft under any circumstances.

Then it happened.

A player that could surprisingly fall under that category in this year's draft is Stefon Diggs. Diggs has not shown up to the Bills' voluntary workouts to begin the offseason and was even seen posting at Coachella while his Buffalo teammates were working out.

The Bills and Josh Allen aren't concerned about Diggs this early into the offseason. But as it appears, there's an obvious conflict between the All-Pro wideout and his quarterback. Remember, Diggs was seen visibly upset after the Bills' playoff loss to the Bengals -- storming into the locker room, clearing it out, and leaving immediately.

Buffalo won't want to trade away its top receiver, though, the relationship between Diggs and the organization might be fractured. That's where the Cowboys could likely come in and offer up their first-round pick and a bit more in exchange for the stud wideout.

There's no doubt Diggs would love to play with his brother Trevon Diggs in Dallas. The Cowboys would likely be the wideouts' number one option if he had the choice. The wide receiver Diggs has put up 4,189 yards in three seasons with the Bills.

Like the Titans trade last year, no one saw Brown being dealt to the Eagles -- let alone at all. Tennessee then used the Philadelphia pick to draft its wideout replacement in Treylon Burks. Something similar could happen here with the Bills and Cowboys in the 2023 NFL Draft.

It sounds crazy to have Dallas trade its first-round pick for Diggs. But hey, the Cowboys have already had a wild offseason trading for two veterans, why not make it even crazier by trading for a third?
