Odell Beckham Jr. – WR

Last season, Brian Gutekunst looked for an “explosive offensive player” in a trade. Yet despite still needing help on offense during the offseason, the Packers didn’t do much at receiver outside of signing Devin Funchess. The Packers did strengthen the run game by drafting AJ Dillon and Josiah Deguara, but they still need more receiving options.

A dream trade for the Packers would be superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. After not making the impact many expected in his first year with the Cleveland Browns, fans began to discuss the possibility of OBJ being traded this offseason. So far, it hasn’t happened, but it would be a dream move for the Packers.

And let’s talk about that “disappointing” season. A quiet year for OBJ would be a career-best for many other wide receivers; he finished with 1,035 yards and four touchdowns. Beckham has five 1,000-yard seasons and the only time he failed to hit the milestone was in 2017 when injury limited him to playing in just four games.

A two-time All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowler, Beckham would form the league’s number one receiving duo alongside Davante Adams. And with Beckham’s speed and yards-after-catch ability, he’d be unstoppable in Matt LaFleur’s offense. Wide receiver would no longer be a need for the Packers. Far from it.
