1st-Round Draft Prospects the Green Bay Packers Should Consider Trading Up for
Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports
Wide receiver Mike Evans is a player the Packers should consider trading up for.

The Green Bay Packers rarely trade up in the first round of the NFL draft. They're usually content to stay put and draft the best player available.

However, there are a handful of players in this year's draft who would greatly improve the Packers instantaneously. And with Green Bay getting an extremely valuable compensatory pick in the third round, they now have the ammunition to do so if they want to.

The last time the Packers decided to make a trade in the first round was back in 2009 when they traded back into the first round in order to select outside linebacker Clay Matthews. How has that worked out for them?

Today, we'll look at five prospects who the Packers should consider trading up for. We'll break down where the Packers would need to get to in order to draft each specific player and what they'd have to give up using this helpful trade value chart.
