Packers: Four potential trade partners in the 2019 NFL Draft
By Jesse Fry
Here’s a look at four teams the Green Bay Packers could trade with during the 2019 NFL Draft.
The 2019 NFL Draft week is finally here. On Thursday, teams will put their year-long preparations into action and get the player they coveted all along. Wheeling and dealing will be plentiful and there should be many teams looking to make a trade.
Green Bay rolls into the draft with two first-round selections and 10 total picks. Whether or not GM Brain Gutekunst makes all 10 of those selections is anybody’s guess.
Gutekunst showed last year he isn’t averse to moving around the draft, making trades twice in the first round (one back in the draft and one moving up) picking up an extra 2019 first-round draft pick in the process.
Now armed with that extra first-round pick, Gutekunst has even more ammo to move around should he see fit. With 10 total picks, the Packers have the luxury to move up and down the draft board to either find value and fit or chase a player they covet.
Judging by the start of free agency, I expect we might see an aggressive Gutekunst looking to add more talent to the team. Gutekunst swung big in the market, acquiring two of the top pass rushers as well as a starting safety all within a matter of a couple of hours.
So, if aggression is the theme of the offseason that carries into the draft, who are some teams the Packers could target as trade partners?
