So much attention is given to the NFL Draft’s first round and as Green Bay Packers fans, we are always interested in that round. 

However, many mock drafts and top analysts focus solely on the opening picks of the draft.  There is good reason for this, since these prospects’ natural gifts and college production has earned them the privilege of the pre-draft limelight.

However, there are so many prospects that will have an immediate impact on NFL teams who will be selected later in the draft. This is especially true in this year’s draft, which has been called the deepest in years. 

There will be multiple players selected in the second round that would likely be first round picks in any other year’s draft class.

This is why I have carefully narrowed my list of players to four players who I believe will be prime prospects of interest for the Green Bay Packers when they are on the clock in the second round. I will also give attention to several players who have been rumored as possible second round picks that I don’t believe fit the bill for the Packers.   

While it is difficult to predict who will be on the board when the Packers select, I am fairly confident that we can remove a few players from consideration.  Kyle Van Noy, Jimmie Ward, and Jace Amaro are all likely to be off the board by the time Green Bay picks.  In the event they are still available, they would warrant significant consideration. However, for the sake of what is more likely, I have removed their names from the conversation. 

Who’s left then?

I believe one of these four players could very well be the chosen with the Green Bay Packer’s 53rd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

    Jimmie Ward is likely worth giving up an extra mid round pick to move up high enough to get. 2nd round is TT’s move up round n Ward could be the guy he moves up for this year. Mosley or Shazier in the 1st, Ward in the 2nd n that should really help solidify our D all around.

    About four hours ago, I submitted the reason why I believe the Packers should consider/take Bucannon over Brooks. Why hasn’t it been posted?
