2022 NFL Draft: How Far Can Packers Move If They Want to Trade?

Since taking over as general manager of Green Bay Packers in 2018, Brian Goodkunst has made a total of four trades in the first round of his four drafts, advancing three times. In fact, 2021 is the first time he has not advanced in the first round and the draft weekend is the first year he has not traded.

2022 It looks like it will be a different story. The Packers have a total of 11 choices, with two rounds each being 1st, 2nd and 4th and 7th and final round three. There aren’t many places for new players on their list, so the brilliant money is trying to be aggressive once again on Gutekunst and moving upwards on the board. But how far can they really get the bulk of the draft capital the team has this year?

We are here to answer that question and to see realistically what Packers’ choices can involve in trading them. Instead of looking at the classic Jimmy Johnson business chart, let’s look at the modern chart compiled by Rich Hill. Bates Pulpit, Which is somewhat consistent with recent trading values. In most of these cases, both charts are worth only one or two, leading to a green pack one or two places below the selection identified by the Johnson Chart Hill chart.

To get us within the right general range, let’s first look at the monks in the first four rounds and see how far the Packers can go in rationality. Overall the Packers have two fourth-round picks at # 132 and # 140, but both are approximately equal in value and effectively interchangeable.

Rising from 22

In this scenario, let’s see how far the Packers can trade from the 22nd choice they bought from the Las Vegas Riders (with # 53) in exchange for the rights of Davante Adams. If Green Bay were willing to compile both of its first-rounders, they could get up to # 5 overall, where the New York Giants currently sit. This is probably not the case because Green Bay is unlikely to do so.

However, packaging 22 and 53 may be a possibility – after all, bakers had none of those choices until a month ago. With a value equal to the 11th overall selection, it could come out of the top ten in the Green Bay. If the Packers find a player they really like coming out of the top ten, it’s a way for Goodgunst to take a run and get him.

Here you can see the different combinations and approximately equivalent value on the Rich Hill chart of each package selection.

22 + 53 + 132 379 # 10 (369)
22 + 92 + 132 316 # 15 (315)

Many fake drafts seem to be running on receivers in the late teens recently, so if the Packers want to go wide, something in the 14/15 range might be the perfect place to land. At the age of 14 Baltimore Packers had many contacts with the front office because Mild Hendrickson worked there, so it feels like a reliable place to reach.

Rising from 28

The Packers have actually made significant moves since the late 20s, moving from 27th to 18th in 2018 to select Jair Alexander. In that trade Green Bay would cost a third-rounder (# 76) and a sixth-round test, although those third-16 picks were earlier than they had taken in the same round (# 92) this year.

A similar trade, this time with 28, 92 and 132, can get bakers up to the 20th choice. This is what NFL.com’s Chad Reuters presented as its latest parody this weekend.

28 + 53 344 # 12 (347)

28 + 132 229 # 25 (230)

28 + 53 + 92 358 # 11 (358)
28 + 59 + 92 343 # 12 (347) or # 13 (336)
28 + 53 + 132 335 # 13 (336)
28 + 92 + 132 272 # 20 (269)

If Green Bay wants to go three places or more, they can do so by sending a fourth round pick. By 2020, when they move from 30 to 26 and send Big No. 136, they will be almost 25 years old. Of course, that 26th choice ended up being Jordan Love.

The Reuters mock trade, up to about 21, feels like a good place here, offering the opportunity to make Green Bay back-to-back choices. This writer thinks that using the 22nd exam is more likely to go into adolescence. Gutekunst can be on the cards if you target someone specific.

Goes from 53 to above

By packaging their pair of second-rounders, the Packers could get a third-round pick overall # 30. But the Packers could advance about six places by sending their third-round pick to trade about 13 places or four. It could bring them to the level of the 40s and catch a player who will fall or advance beyond the likes of Minnesota and Chicago.

Seattle may have a chance as they have their 40th and 41st exams. John Schneider worked with Gutekunst in Green Bay before the two became GMs, and both have signed deals in the past.

Trading from 53

53 + 59 + 92 240 # 24 (237)
53 + 92 + 132 169 # 35 (170)

Goes from 59 upwards

Finally, look at the options for the Packers going above and beyond the 59th overall selection, using their third-rounder, fourth or both. Green Bay could go all the way to the middle of the second round with a third-round pick or send one of their fourth-round players to the early 50s.

Trading from 59

Select the combo Selection value Equivalent choice
Select the combo Selection value Equivalent choice
59 + 92 134 # 44 (135)
59 + 132 111 # 51 (112)
59 + 92 + 132 154 # 39 (153)

Big 44 could be a potential target here because it would be the first choice after the Cleveland Browns traded for the first-rounder to get Dyshan Watson. If they want to step back and add some extra options, this may be the way to do it.
