1. Packers could trade for L'Jarius Sneed

Another tag-and-trade candidate is Kansas City Chiefs cornerback L'Jarius Sneed. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported the Chiefs are open to trading Sneed if they can't agree on a long-term deal with the star cornerback.

Making a deal for Sneed wouldn't come cheap for the Packers. They would likely have to part ways with (at least) one of their two second-round picks, while Spotrac projects he will land a new deal worth $16.3 million annually. That number will only increase if several teams are interested.

Cornerback is one of the Packers' top needs, and the idea of pairing Sneed with All-Pro Jaire Alexander would be tempting.

Sneed has played a starring role in the Chiefs' back-to-back Super Bowl wins, defending 25 passes and intercepting five over the past two seasons. He made a game-changing forced fumble in the AFC title game win over the Baltimore Ravens. It prevented a touchdown and resulted in a Chiefs touchback, as the fumble went out of the end zone.

Sneed is one of the best cornerbacks in the league, and the Packers have the luxury of owning two second-round picks. A trade could make sense.

The Chiefs land a premium pick and trade Sneed out of the AFC. The Packers trade for a star player at a position of need and still keep a second-round pick. Who says no?
