Green Bay Packers Acquire Multiple First-Round Draft Picks Outside Of Aaron Rodgers Trade In Latest Proposal

The Green Bay Packers unfortunately missed out on a 2024 first-round draft pick in their Aaron Rodgers trade after he suffered his brutal injury during the very first week.  While the Packers will still have an extra second-round pick in 2024, some feel the Packers still didn’t get enough in return after losing a four-time MVP quarterback.

If the last two off-seasons have shown anything, this front office is not afraid to pull off a big trade.  Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers are evidence of that.  Would the Packers consider yet another massive trade?

The Green Bay Packers Acquire Two First-Round Draft Picks For Jaire Alexander In Latest Trade Proposal

It was announced in May 2022 that the 2018 first-round pick had signed a four-year, $84 million contract extension with the Packers. Despite only being 26 years old, he is consistently ranked among the top five defensive backs in the league.  Sayre Bedinger of highlighted a scenario that would get the Packers a massive return:

The Miami Dolphins have picks in the first- and second-round of the 2024 NFL Draft, but with the way their roster is constructed, I don’t think they would care if they don’t have first- or second-round picks for the foreseeable future. This Dolphins team seemingly has everything they need, except the cornerback position is a bit of a question mark.

They lost Jalen Ramsey before the season to an injury, and a player like Jaire Alexander could really boost this team’s chances at winning its third title in franchise history. What if they were to offer the Packers two first-rounders and cornerback Cam Smith?

Again, we’re talking about offers the Packers would not be able to refuse. I think this would qualify. This would probably qualify as a significant overpay for the Dolphins, but that’s fair enough when it comes to winning the first Super Bowl the team would have won since the early 1970s. Very few Dolphins fans know what it’s like to win.

This is a win-now move.

This is his proposed trade:

Miami Dolphins Receive: 
  • CB Jaire Alexander
  • 2024 4th-Round Pick
Green Bay Packers Recevie:
  • CB Cam Smith
  • 2024 1st-Round Pick
  • 2025 1st-Round Pick

Would The Packers Ever Trade Away Alexander?

Alexander, through his ups and downs, is one of those players you could build a defense around.  The Packers have a few of those players on defense (Rashan Gary and Kenny Clark).  Trading him seems to be foolish to many fans.

The only way this type of trade could happen is if the front office sees more value in multiple first-round draft picks to build around Jordan Love than they do in a premier cornerback.  ESPN’s Bill Barnwell supports the notion that Alexander is worth at least one first-round pick:
“Injuries are the only concern with Alexander, who missed most of 2021 because of a shoulder injury and has sat out two games this season because of a back issue,” Barnwell wrote on Thursday. “When he’s right, few corners are as capable as him. Although, Alexander typically doesn’t travel with the opposing team’s wideout and stays on one side of the field.”
