In less than a month, the Green Bay Packers will continue to build their roster in the 2023 NFL Draft. The three-day event will present GM Brian Gutekunst with an excellent opportunity to get new starting quarterback Jordan Love some help.

Between now and April 27, the million-dollar question will surround Aaron Rodgers' future. We know a trade to the New York Jets is inevitable, but when will an agreement be made?

And what could the Packers receive in compensation? It's mock draft time.

Green Bay Packers trade Aaron Rodgers to New York Jets

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reported this week that the Jets are "focused" on a deal that would send two second-rounders to the Packers. That would include one this year and one in 2024. The latter could become a first-round pick if certain conditions are met.

With that in mind, I've gone with something similar here. However, instead of the 2024 second-rounder possibly becoming a first, I've made it a guaranteed second. As added compensation, the Packers add wide receiver Corey Davis.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur spoke about the importance of bringing in a veteran wide receiver, and trading for Davis is a way of achieving this.

The free-agent receiver market is thin. In Davis, the Packers would be getting a reliable veteran receiver who averaged 16.8 yards per catch last season despite having some poor quarterback play.

Green Bay would now have a trio of Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, and Corey Davis to build on.

Round 1 (15): Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

Clemson's Myles Murphy falling to No. 15 overall would be a dream scenario. The Packers need pass-rush help, and Murphy has Pro Bowl potential.

The Packers love drafting great athletes at premium positions, and Murphy checks both boxes. Not only is he a strong run defender, but Murphy can become a star pass rusher. According to Michael Renner of Pro Football Focus, Murphy had 76 pressures in the past two seasons.

Murphy will only continue to improve. Long-term, a combination of Rashan Gary and Myles Murphy could give the Packers one of the best pass-rush duos in the NFL.
