There have been no shortage of trade rumors and scenarios this offseason. We have even seen some blockbuster deals, including the one that sent Davante Adams from the Green Bay Packers to Las Vegas Raiders. There may be more on the way involving current players as Deebo Samuel has reportedly demanded a trade from the San Francisco 49ers. Still others involve draft picks that will move teams up and down the picking order. NFL.com’s Cynthia Frelund believes that the Packers and New York Giants will agree on a trade that will give the Packers the seventh overall pick in the Draft.
The Details of the Trade
The Green Bay Packers have the 22nd and 28th overall picks in the first round of this year’s Draft. The New York Giants also have two picks in the first round, but these are both in the top ten. New York currently holds the fifth and seventh overall picks.
In this scenario, the Packers would send the 22nd overall pick, along with number 59 this year and a second round pick in next year’s Draft. In return, Green Bay would receive the seventh overall pick in the Draft.
According to Frelund, the Packers would be motivated to get this deal done if the first six picks in the Draft are not wide receivers. With their choice of wide receivers, the Packers would get the one guy that they feel will best help them move on from Davante Adams. They would also retain the 28th overall pick, but would be able to use it to address other needs.
