Packers 7-round mock draft with crazy 3-team Aaron Rodgers trade
Start the one-week countdown. The 2023 NFL Draft is almost here, and we'll finally find out which talented players will join the Green Bay Packers.
Aaron Rodgers could be traded on draft day. But what if the Packers and Jets are unable to finalize the deal between now and the start of the draft?
We put together a potential three-team proposal featuring the Packers, Jets, and San Francisco 49ers, a deal that works for everyone. How could this impact the Packers in the draft? That's how we begin this seven-round mock.
Packers 7-round mock draft featuring 3-team Aaron Rodgers trade
Who says no? The Packers land premium picks for Aaron Rodgers, the 49ers solve their quarterback problem, and the Jets trade for the 2021 third overall pick. Green Bay moves on from Rodgers and gets good value, San Francisco goes all-in for a championship, and New York finds its long-term starter.
Green Bay gets some short-term help with the addition of the 42nd overall selection this year. Importantly, the Packers also land a 2024 first-rounder—perfect building blocks to rebuild around Jordan Love.
But the draft-day trades don't end there. Could the Packers trade up in the first round for the fourth time in six years under GM Brian Gutekunst?
