The Green Bay Packers are one of the teams exploring a trade-up in the second round of the 2022 NFL draft, which begins Friday night.

“Keep an eye on the Green Bay Packers,” NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said when discussing teams that could move up to start Day 2.

The Packers are “working the boards” and “trying to see if they can move up.”

Rapoport suggested the Packers could move up 10 spots or more, possibly in a trade with the New York Giants, who hold the No. 36 overall pick. Getting to No. 36 would require the Packers to move up 17 spots, an aggressive trade scenario for a team with three picks (No. 53, No. 59, No. 92) on Day 2. Giving up the third-round pick could be enough to get up into position.

The target? Possibly a pass-catcher. The Packers weren’t able to get a preferred receiver in the first round, but the second round looks like a hot spot at the position. Christian Watson, George Pickens, Jalen Tolbert and Alec Pierce could all be targets in a trade-up scenario.

After solidifying the defense on Day 1, the Packers could be one of the teams willing to move up to get a receiver to start Day 2.
