3. De'Vondre Campbell

De'Vondre Campbell returned from injury just in time for the trade deadline. He immediately made a difference for the Packers with a team-best 14 tackles, including 10 solo, and one quarterback hit against Minnesota.

Campbell is a three-down linebacker who can defend the run and hold up against the pass. He was named a first-team All-Pro only two seasons ago. Contenders needing a veteran starter in the middle of their defense should have interest in Campbell.

The Packers have a young roster and drafted Campbell's replacement last year. Quay Walker has made significant improvements to his game in year two. He dropped an interception against the Vikings, but the promising part is that he was in the perfect position to make the play.

Walker can lead the way at inside linebacker, with Isaiah McDuffie stepping into a starting role to replace Campbell.

Campbell is a solid starting linebacker and capable of making game-changing plays. But he is 30 years old. He could make a difference for a contending team, but the Packers are focused on getting younger. Trading Campbell would also free up additional cap space.

Green Bay won't land a premium draft pick for Campbell, but this team needs to add as many picks as possible.
