What could the Green Bay Packers get in a trade with the New York Jets for Aaron Rodgers? This four-round mock draft features a potential solution.

At some point in the near future, Green Bay Packers legend Aaron Rodgers is expected to officially become a New York Jets player.

While the Packers figure out trade compensation with the Jets, they can begin preparing for the start of the Jordan Love era.

And that’s the focus of this four-round mock draft, beginning with the trade.

Mock draft: Packers trade Aaron Rodgers to Jets

In this scenario, the Jets don’t have to give up the 13th overall selection in this year’s draft. That’s fine, but the Packers aren’t going to trade away a four-time MVP for nothing.

Green Bay lands a second-round pick in this year’s draft, giving the team three selections in the top 50 overall.

The Packers also get some pass-rush help with Jermaine Johnson, a first-round pick by the Jets only a year ago. He would strengthen the pass rush alongside Rashan Gary, Preston Smith, and Kingsley Enagbare.

And to sweeten the deal, Green Bay also brings back a fourth-round pick in 2024.

New York gets a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback to become contenders in the AFC this season. A fair deal.
