Green Bay Packers general manager does some of his best work in the middle rounds of the draft. Here’s some potential target in this year’s class.
Finding value in the middle of the draft isn’t easy, but doing so adds valuable depth to roster. In the Green Bay Packers’ case, they have found some stars in the middle rounds in recent seasons. Mike Daniels was a fourth round pick, as were guards T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton. Most recently, Corey Linsley was picked up in the fifth.
The Packers are expected to have a couple of compensatory picks to work with after losing Tramon Williams and Davon House in free agency last year. It’s possible they receiver two fourth round picks, or at worst one fourth and one fifth. Thompson loves these compensatory picks, allowing him to take another swing of the bat.
A lot of the focus currently is on the top prospects in this year’s class, and most mock drafts feature just the opening couple of rounds. But which under-the-radar names should the Packers circle on day two and three? Let’s work our way through ten prospects Green Bay could target.
