On Wednesday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Packers are "plotting" a possible trade up from the No. 14 pick with the hope of landing a "top-tier talent."
The Packers have traditionally been among the least-active teams in free agency and the draft. Rapoport noted their last deal to move up in the first round came in 2009, when they selected linebacker Clay Matthews with the 26th pick.
New general manager Brian Gutekunst, who will be leading his first-ever draft, has already put his stamp on the Packers by signing tight end Jimmy Graham as a free agent and releasing wide receiver Jordy Nelson.
Green Bay remembered how difficult life can be without Aaron Rodgers in 2017, when the quarterback missed nine games with a collarbone injury. The Packers went 4-2 in games in which he played all four quarters but went 3-7 when Brett Hundley was their primary quarterback.
With Green Bay in need of more impact talent on both sides of the ball, a move up would make sense if they can find a trade partner.
