1. Cowboys trade Herschel Walker and 4 draft picks to Vikings for 5 players and 8 draft picks -- Seriously, this really happened, back in 1989. You can read about the particulars here.


I believe that one of those picks turned out to be Emmitt Smith.

Yup. I don't like analyzing who was drafted after because it's not like the team that traded the pick was necessarily going to draft the same guy.

It's like the draft pick that was traded for Eli Manning turned out to be Shawn Merriman.

Dallas's 3rd round pick - 1990 (54) (Mike Jones)
