The 2023 NFL Trade Deadline is quickly approaching on October 31st, and the Green Bay Packers may have some difficult decisions to make.

At 2-3, there’s a solid case to be made for them to be sellers and move some of the talent on their team that doesn’t mesh with their long-term plans for draft picks. However, with a couple of wins, they are right back into the thick of the playoff race and could convince themselves to acquire a player to support Jordan Love better and help their team be successful this season.

As we’ve been exploring potential trade candidates for the Packers to move on from and acquire, let’s put together a Packers’ trade block big board consisting of 10 players they could trade for.

With the 2023 NFL Trade Deadline approaching on October 31st, here’s a ranking of candidates the Green Bay Packers could pursue.

Budda Baker, Safety, Arizona Cardinals

By far the best player on this list, Budda Baker would be a homerun trade for the Packers. He’s a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro who would immediately stabilize Green Bay’s safety position. He’s on the injured reserve right now but should come off before the deadline.

Jaylinn Hawkins, Safety, Atlanta Falcons

Sticking at safety for a minute, Jaylinn Hawkins started 22 games in his four-year career, but has turned into a backup with the Falcons’ offseason signing of Jessie Bates. Atlanta has another rookie rising their depth chart and could move on from Hawkins, who is coming off a strong training camp despite not playing much during the regular season.

Xavier McKinney, Safety, New York Giants

At this rate, anyone on the Giants is likely a trade candidate. He’s only 24 years old and is in the final year of his rookie contract, however, he could become a part of the Packers’ long-term plan as they currently have none at safety.

Garett Bolles, Offensive Tackle, New York Giants

The Packers’ offensive line is in shambles, collectively playing far below their talent level. Garett Bolles could help stabilize left tackle and provide the Packers with a more trusted option at offensive tackle.

Michael Carter, Running Back, New York Jets

It was only 2021 when Michael Carter burst into the NFL in his rookie year and ran for 639 yards. He’s under contract through 2024 and would allow the Packers to explore whether he can be a part of their long-term plan at running back. At the very least, he’d give them a cheap option at running back for next season.

Tyrion Davis-Price, Running Back, San Francisco 49ers

Tyrion Davis-Price was a third-round pick in 2022 who has been buried on the depth chart by talented 49ers running backs. San Francisco likes him, but he hasn’t been able to beat out the guys ahead of him. The Packers could trade for him and control his contract for two more years.

Salvon Ahmed, Running Back, Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins are as deep as anyone at running back and can afford to move on from someone. He’s shown spurts of being productive but has never been given the chance to sustain that momentum. With the futures of AJ Dillon and Aaron Jones murky, Green Bay could look for a head start on finding a long-term plan for the position.

D.J. Jones, Defensive Tackle, Denver Broncos

The Packers have struggled to stop the run, which D.J. Jones excels in. He’s 6-foot and 305 pounds and can eat blockers and occupy space. Green Bay could benefit from another run-stuffing defensive lineman.

Irv Smith, Tight End, Cincinnati Bengals

Make no mistake, Luke Musgrave is the Packers’ present and future when it comes to tight end. However, they haven’t been satisfied with anyone else’s play at the position. Irv Smith would give them a more veteran player to teach the younger guys the ropes. The biggest issue is he’s always hurt.

Mo Alie-Cox, Tight End, Indianapolis Colts

Mo Alie-Cox is another depth acquisition for Green Bay. He’s in the final year of his contract, which could be a deterrent for the Packers, but he would provide them an immediate upgrade on the depth chart and a player with more experience than Tucker Kraft or Ben Sims.
