2. Packers trade No. 45, No. 101 and a 2019 3rd to Jacksonville for No. 29
The Jacksonville Jaguars only hold five picks in this year’s draft so they’re certainly a viable candidate who’s likely to trade down with the hopes of acquiring more picks. And that’s exactly what happens here.
The Packers send their second, fourth and a 2019 third round pick to the Jaguars in order to move back into the first round of the draft and right ahead of a division rival the Minnesota Vikings
In Mel Kiper Jr.’s latest mock draft, he has the Vikings selecting Joshua Jackson with the 30th overall pick. That seems like a huge dropoff for a player who’s being tossed around as a possibility for the Packers first pick at 14.
If he does slide that far, Green Bay would be wise to move back into the first round and draft him. Even though he only has one year of sustained success at Iowa, he was a ballhawk last season and someone who has the potential to completely change the game in his teams favor.
Oh, and it’d also prevent the Vikings from adding to their already loaded defense.
