In addition to Miller, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported that the Packers were looking to trade up.
The new #Packers may be on display Thursday night. They are among the teams plotting a potential trade up — from No. 14 — for a top-tier talent, sources say. It would be their first opening round move up since Clay Matthews in 2009.

Green Bay focused on improving their defense this offseason, with their big move being the addition of Muhammad Wilkerson. They now want to improve their secondary.
Fitzpatrick had nine interceptions and five sacks in three seasons with the Tide. The Packers have been linked to him several times leading up to the draft.
