The Green Bay Packers rival, the Chicago Bears, currently own the first and second overall picks in the 2024 NFL Draft if the NFL regular season ends today. Chicago, with the first pick would most likely select quarterback Caleb Williams from USC. With the second pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, the Bears have a lot of options.
They can keep the pick and select wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. from Ohio State or trade the pick and get a boatload of picks. There will be several NFL teams that will call Chicago about the second overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Who are some of the teams that can trade up with the Packers’ rival for the number two pick?
The New York Giants would be one of the teams that should trade with the Green Bay Packers rivals to move up in the 2024 NFL Draft
The New York Giants would currently own the fifth pick in the 2024 NFL Draft if the season ended today. They have a 1-5 record, and New York is currently in a dilemma at the quarterback position. Quarterback Daniel Jones doesn’t seem to be the answer for the long-term, and he is dealing with another neck injury. Tyrod Taylor will be the quarterback in the meantime.
The Giants currently have the worst-ranked offense in the NFL. Yes, the offensive line is injured, but it is also one of the worst units in the NFL. General manager Joe Schoen needs to swing for the fences and get the number two overall pick in the draft.
They should be eyeing quarterback Drake Maye from North Carolina in that situation, and he would be the next franchise quarterback for the New York Giants. Head coach Brian Daboll would love to have a different quarterback. The Arizona Cardinals have the fourth pick, and the Denver Broncos have the third pick, and the Giants need to leapfrog them both. Eli Manning was the last good Giants franchise quarterback.
New England Patriots
The New England Patriots own the sixth pick in the draft, and they also have a 1-5 record. Mac Jones doesn’t seem to be the answer for the Patriots long-term, but it also doesn’t help they have nothing dynamic on the perimeter. Head Coach Bill Belichick wants to win a Super Bowl without Tom Brady since Brady already won one without him with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
New England can not compete in the AFC East without a solid quarterback. The Buffalo Bills have Josh Allen, the Miami Dolphins have Tua Tagovailoa, and the New York Jets have Aaron Rodgers coming back from injury next season. The Patriots need some dynamic behind center for the long haul by taking one in the 2024 NFL Draft.
The Atlanta Falcons Currently Own the 12th selection in the 2024 NFL Draft. They currently have a 3-3 record, and it feels as if this football team is a quarterback away from being a playoff contender. Atlanta can still win the NFC South division this season, but it appears as if Desmond Ridder is not the long-term answer for the franchise.
Smith can switch to Taylor Heinicke at some point this season or trade for somebody, but the Falcons need to find someone for the next decade. They moved off of Matt Ryan a couple of years ago and have been struggling to find his replacement. Arthur Smith is an offensive head coach who would love to mold his next franchise quarterback with the offensive weapons they have. Bijan Robinson, Tyler Allegier, Drake London, and Kyle Pitts are a few of them.
The Green Bay Packers Currently Select 9th in the 2024 NFL Draft, and they can very well get a great player
There is a possibility that there are five quarterbacks taken within the first eight picks in the 2024 NFL Draft. There are going to be some great players available when the Green Bay Packers make a selection. Green Bay with the ninth pick will have all sorts of options. Do they take the best player available not at the quarterback position or do they trade down with someone and get more picks to build this young football team?
A few names that the Packers could have available to them at this spot are cornerback Kool-Aid McKinstry from Alabama, defensive tackle Jer’Zhan Newton from Illinois, and offensive tackle JC Latham from Alabama. Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst would have so many options to choose from.
