“With their needs and the depth of this draft, at 29 I would be trying to move back like a bandit,” a personnel man said to McGinn. “Quarterbacks are going to drive this draft. I think there’s going to be some action there at the end of the first round. With these quarterbacks, they need a five-year contract because they’re not ready. I think there will be a lot of movement coming up (into the first round).
“With the depth of this draft at defensive end and safety and corner and tight end, I would be looking to trade down.”
Green Bay currently has eight picks in the draft, and trading down would allow them to add more picks to fill those needs - particularly in the secondary.
The NFL Draft kicks off with the first round on Thursday at 8:00 pm ET on ESPN and NFL Network.Back to the Green Bay Packers Newsfeed
