2015 NFL Mock Draft roundup: Who do the mockers say the Green Bay Packers will pick?

The 2015 NFL Draft is less than one month away, and as mock draft after mock draft are released, one key point is looking more certain: the Green Bay Packers are looking to get defensive with their first overall selection.

Green Bay will be on the clock at pick No. 30 overall, and following a very Packer-ish quiet free agency period, will be looking to replenish some position groups that need some help.

The Packers stayed by the book and re-signed their own big-name free agents – Randall Cobb and Bryan Bulaga standing out from the group.

Noticeably, the Packers didn’t do much in free agency on the defensive side of the ball.

An already weak inside linebacker position got even thinner this offseason as the Packers said goodbye to A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones is now an Eagle, and Jamari Lattimore headed to the Jets in free agency.

The Packers also said farewell to cornerbacks Tramon Williams and Davon House, who took more money to leave the Green and Gold.

And on the defensive line, the Packers have re-signed a pair of veterans, but both have added issues, whether on or off the field.

Yes, the Packers have some spots that need to be addressed, and if we’ve learned anything, we know Ted Thompson likes to address those needs through the draft.

So whether it’s at linebacker, cornerback or on the defensive line, the Packers are very likely to spend their first pick on defense, at least according to the latest mock drafts.

Let’s take a look around the various mockers’ latest projections, and take a look at what direction the Packers might take with their No. 30 overall draft pick.
