As OTAs wrap up and the Green Bay Packers shift focus to minicamp here, soon, fans can't help but get excited for the real star event of the summer: training camp.

But, before training camp gets rolling, teams are going to make some final moves to shore up their rosters, and that includes Green Bay.

In a recent piece done over at Bleacher Report, Gary Davenport listed one trade candidate for each team, so we picked a few and identified how each would fill a need for this Packers team.

Green Bay could steal a cornerback from within the division

First off, the Packers should absolutely be eyeing help at cornerback. We've talked about it here at Lombardi Ave recently. Green Bay shouldn't feel 100 percent confident in Jaire Alexander and Eric Stokes, at least in terms of their injury history.

Carrington Valentine and Corey Ballentine are fine depth, but neither one would be guys you'd want starting for an extended period of time. At the very least, giving those two some competition would be a good move.

Minnesota Vikings cornerback Akayleb Evans might wind up being fourth or fifth on the depth chart when training camp is all said and done, yet he started 15 games in 2023. At 6-foot-2, he brings excellent size to the position and still has a couple years left on his rookie deal. Talented depth is the name of the game here, and Evans would bring the Packers just that.
