This Packers-Raiders Draft Day Trade Could Land Green Bay Jerry Jeudy

Davante Adams is one of the finest receivers in all of football, but the Green Bay Packers desperately need to add a complementary piece to take some of the heat off of him.

Alabama's Jerry Jeudy has "star" written all over him, but there's almost no chance that he ends up lasting until pick No. 30. If a team like the Las Vegas Raiders, who have shown they like accumulating picks, is willing to trade down (as some reports have suggested), Green Bay should try to move up to No. 12 and get another star receiver.

The Packers would obviously have to give up pick No. 30 to move up 18 spots. In addition to surrendering their first-round pick this year, they would also have to give up a first round pick in 2021, a third-round pick this year, and a miscellaneous late-round pick.

In this deal, Green Bay would add one of the safest wide receiver prospects in years into an offense ready to chase a Super Bowl trophy. Las Vegas, meanwhile, stockpiles more draft picks to use on wide receivers, cornerbacks, and defensive linemen -- three areas of strength as it relates to the 2020 draft class. And having two first-rounders next year could help them secure their QB of the future if they're not ready to take one later in this draft.

The only way Green Bay is finally going to find an acceptable No. 2 wide receiver for Adams is by being bold and moving up to pick "their guy" in the draft. Jeudy and Adams are masters at separating at the line of scrimmage, so making things that much easier for Aaron Rodgers is a terrifying thought for opposing defenses.
