The Green Bay Packers are in an intriguing position this offseason heading into the 2020 NFL Draft. After finishing the 2019 season with a 13-3 record and making a run to the NFC Championship Game, Green Bay doesn’t have to make any drastic moves. They simply need to add more talent around their current roster.
Brian Gutekunst currently holds the No. 30 overall pick in the upcoming draft. While many believe they are going to target a wide receiver, no one truly knows which receiver is their top target.
What if we said that the Packers should take a long look at making an aggressive trade up in the draft in order to select Alabama star wideout Henry Ruggs III?
Ruggs is coming off of a big season with the Crimson Tide. He caught 40 passes for 746 yards and seven touchdowns. Those numbers average out to a solid 18.6 yards per reception.
Green Bay desperately needed speed last season and drafting Ruggs would give Aaron Rodgers a lethal weapon. It won’t be cheap or easy for the Packers to move up, but it is possible.
Let’s dive in and take a look at the trade that the Packers could make to move up and snag Ruggs.
