Armed with 11 picks in the 2024 NFL Draft and a roster that is ready to compete right now, the Green Bay Packers could get aggressive and make a blockbuster trade this offseason.

We've seen them make blockbuster deals to get rid of players in recent years -- moving on from WR Davante Adams and QB Aaron Rodgers -- but what if the Packers want to bring in a proven player instead of spending all of that draft capital on unproven guys?

A veteran addition could be exactly what this team needs to get over the top, and even a blockbuster trade wouldn't deplete Green Bay's draft hoard. They'd be able to have their cake and eat it too, in a way.

But what kinds of deals could realistically be available this offseason? Well, anything in the NFL is within the realm of realism for the right price, but given Green Bay's top needs, let's look at some interesting blockbuster trades that could shake up the NFL.

1. Packers could trade Christian Watson for Tee Higgins

Would Christian Watson be enough value straight up in a trade to acquire Tee Higgins away from the Cincinnati Bengals? That could be debated, but there are reasons to believe this kind of deal could be viewed as mutually beneficial for both sides.

From the Packers' perspective, getting a proven player like Tee Higgins to come in and be the team's WR1 would fill the number one void in the offense right now. Christian Watson is supposed to be that guy, but he hasn't proven he can stay on the field long enough to be that guy. But the flashes from Watson have been brilliant.

Meanwhile, the Bengals want to recoup the best possible value they can from Higgins. They'd probably love to just keep him on the roster now and for the long term, but you can't pay everyone. Getting Christian Watson would buy them a couple of years and give them a tremendous upside play at the position alongside Ja'Marr Chase.
