1. Packers could trade David Bakhtiari to Jets

No trade destination would make more sense for David Bakhtiari than the New York Jets. He would be joining former Packers teammates Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, and Billy Turner in New York.

The Jets also need a tackle. Swapping first-round picks with the Packers likely cost them the chance to draft Georgia's Broderick Jones. Jones was on the board when the Packers hit the clock at No. 13 overall, the pick that previously belonged to the Jets. By the time New York's new pick at No. 15 came around, the Pittsburgh Steelers had traded ahead of them for Jones.

Despite making a number of moves to go all-in with Aaron Rodgers, the Jets still need help at offensive tackle.

It would require Brian Gutekunst and Joe Douglas entering trade negotiations again, and New York has less to offer, having already sent draft capital to Green Bay. However, the Jets need a tackle, and there wouldn't be a better fit than Bakhtiari.

He knows the offense and could step in immediately and upgrade the Jets' offensive line. For a team attempting to win a crowded AFC while they have Aaron Rodgers, adding Rodgers' five-time All-Pro left tackle from Green Bay would make so much sense.
