Stealing one player for the Packers from each NFC South team.

The Green Bay Packers will meet all four NFC South teams in the 2020 season.

But what if the Packers could steal one player from each team? The NFC South is loaded with talent, many at positions the Packers need help at. Need a wide receiver? The NFC South has a number of star pass catchers. Fix the run defense? No problem.

Lombardi Ave’s Jesse Fry wrote a great article earlier this week stealing one player from each of the Packers’ NFC North rivals. I thought it’d be fun to do the same with four other teams on Green Bay’s upcoming schedule, stealing one player from the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This was a lot of fun to put together and I’d love to see your choices. And a quick note, forget about the salary cap. You can add any player without worrying about how it impacts the cap.

Would you load up at wide receiver and go for Julio Jones, Michael Thomas, Mike Evans, and DJ Moore? Would you focus on the defense? Leave a comment below with the four players you’d steal for the Packers from the NFC South.

So here we go. Here are the four players I’d steal from the NFC South.
