Will the Packers make a first-round trade?

Brian Gutekunst made four opening-night trades in his first three draft classes.

In 2018, Green Bay traded from No. 14 to No. 27, then back up to No. 18 to select Jaire Alexander. In 2019, the Packers moved from No. 30 to No. 21 to pick Darnell Savage. In 2020, they jumped up from No. 30 to No. 26 to select Jordan Love.

However, in the previous two drafts, the Packers have stayed put with their original selections.

In 2021, they selected Eric Stokes at No. 29. Last year, they picked Quay Walker at No. 22 and Devonte Wyatt at No. 28. The 22nd pick came from the Las Vegas Raiders in the trade for Davante Adams in March 2022.

The Packers have typically traded up under Gutekunst. Even when they moved down in 2018, they soon jumped back up.

But a trade-down could make more sense this year. With a lot of great value on the second day of the draft, the Packers could move down to acquire additional picks in either the second or third rounds.

Could the Packers trade into the top 10? Move down into the 20s? Anything is possible on the opening night of the draft.
