3/4. Trey Lance, QB, Cowboys/Malik Willis, QB, Titans

This is sort of an out there thought, but the Packers could upgrade their QB2 or QB3 spot even though they've invested draft selections in both Sean Clifford (fifth round, 2023) and Michael Pratt (seventh round, 2024).

Players like Trey Lance and Malik Willis offer the opportunity to implement packages offensively utilizing their athleticism while the Packers have also proven they have the right type of environment to develop these guys as quarterbacks. This would be more of a "rescue these young players" situation as opposed to the Packers really needing to add them. Only if the price is right.

5. Jarrett Stidham, QB, Broncos

The Denver Broncos could soon make Jarrett Stidham available after drafting Bo Nix 12th overall in the 2024 NFL Draft and trading for Zach Wilson just a few days before that. Stidham has started a handful of games in the NFL and would be a clear upgrade over both Sean Clifford and Michael Pratt. Stidham has a base salary under $5 million this season and could be a pretty good value as a QB2 if the Packers need someone to play behind Jordan Love.

It might only cost a late-round pick, which is not something the Packers will lose sleep over as opposed to the idea of Sean Clifford or Michael Pratt actually playing/starting games in 2024.
