What if the Green Bay Packers could “steal” one player from each of their NFC rivals?

The Green Bay Packers have one of the best rosters in the NFC.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t areas they could improve, and there are certainly players within the NFC they would love to have.

It’s the offseason, so let’s have some fun.

We’re going to go through each NFC team and pick one player we would love to see on the Packers.

This doesn’t necessarily mean it will be the best player from each team. For example, no quarterbacks are taken because the Packers have Aaron Rodgers. Positional needs are factored in.

Packers: Stealing one player from each NFC North team

Chicago Bears: EDGE Robert Quinn

Green Bay has two excellent starters on the edge but lacks depth. Enter Robert Quinn. Even at 32 years old, Quinn is still on top of his game. He was a second-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler last season after making 18.5 sacks and 22 quarterback hits.

Quinn would dominate in Joe Barry’s defense next to Rashan Gary and Preston Smith.

Detroit Lions: TE T.J. Hockenson

The Lions have a number of offensive linemen who would make sense here, but I’ve gone with talented tight end T.J. Hockenson.

The Packers do have Robert Tonyan, but Hockenson is one of the best young tight ends in the NFL and would immediately become a go-to target for Aaron Rodgers.

Minnesota Vikings: WR Justin Jefferson

Justin Jefferson in Matt LaFleur’s offense would be unfair.

The 22 year old is already one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, having been named a second-team All-Pro in each of his first two seasons.

The Packers lack a true WR1. Jefferson would fix that.
