NFC North

Green Bay Packers: Josh Jackson, CB

The Packers used a second-round pick on Jackson in the 2018 NFL Draft, and he hasn’t developed into the full-time player he looked like he could be at Iowa.

The Packers don’t have great depth at cornerback, but they have such a desperate need at wide receiver — at least from an outside perspective — that in a mutually beneficial trade, it would make sense for Green Bay to send Jackson away.

Detroit Lions: Jarrad Davis, LB

Anytime you are looking for trade candidates on a team, look for guys entering a contract year for the low-hanging fruit.

Jarrad Davis was a first-round pick in 2017 but the Lions seemingly have put contingencies in place with 2019 second-round pick Jahlani Tavai.

Davis could be shipped out and Tavai could be inserted into the lineup in his place.

Chicago Bears: Mitch Trubisky, QB

If the Bears decide that Nick Foles is their quarterback going forward, it’s going to cause a rift between the team and former first-round pick Mitch Trubisky.

The team already declined his fifth-year option and Trubisky has not proven himself worthy of his top five draft status.

He’s certainly not happy about the situation he’s currently in with the Bears, and if Foles is named the team’s starter before the 2020 season, Trubisky could be traded away.

Minnesota Vikings: Riley Reiff, OT

The Vikings have Reiff penciled in as the starting left tackle for the 2020 season, but he could be a trade candidate with Boise State’s Ezra Cleveland coming in as a second-round pick.

Reiff would be a valuable pickup for a lot of teams looking for a starting tackle right now, and the Vikings would be no worse for wear with the heir apparent already on the roster.
