2. Trade back to either of the Green Bay Packers' picks

One of the biggest moves in the offseason was the Packers trading all-pro wide receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. Adams' connection with quarterback Aaron Rodgers was special and was the catalyst for one of the most dynamic passing attacks in the NFL.

Rodgers is good enough to win some games, especially in the weak NFC North, but I am sure Matt LaFleur would love to have a guy who can produce at a high level right away. If Chris Olave is available at pick 17, do not be surprised if the Packers try to trade up and snag him away from the teams between picks 17 and 22.

Olave is a special playmaker who runs crisp routes and had a great connection with every quarterback he played with at Ohio State. I am not going to say that he will be as productive as Adams has been, but he has the potential to do special things in the NFL

What offer would it take to get the Chargers to budge and allow the Packers to pick up a dynamic receiver that Tom Telesco is likely also interested in? Picks 22 and 59 would make sense, but to get the most value for the chargers, they should attempt to trade back to 28, and get a second and a third-round pick. Here is how the offer would look:

Chargers receive pick 28, pick 53 and pick 92, Packers receive pick 17
