Round 1: Packers make huge trade for tight end

Round 1 (27): Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

A year ago, the Packers sent both of their second-rounders to the Minnesota Vikings to move up for Christian Watson. They could make a similar deal to get back into the first round this year, trading picks in the second and third rounds to the Buffalo Bills.

With Utah's Dalton Kincaid still on the board at No. 27, this was an easy decision to make. Sending a third to the Bills to trade up is well worth it for Kincaid.

Kincaid is a game-changer, and his ability to dominate in the middle of the field is exactly what the Packers need.

While selecting a tight end at No. 13 might be a little early, trading back into the first round makes a ton of sense.

Kincaid is a phenomenal receiver, having caught 70 passes for 890 yards and eight touchdowns at Utah last season. He is easily the best pass-catching tight end in the class and offers sky-high potential.

Leaving the first round with Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Dalton Kincaid would be an A+ start for the Packers. With just two picks, they would have transformed their offense. Jordan Love would have all the pass-catching help he needs, with Smith-Njigba and Kincaid joining Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs.
