Previous picks: DT Austin Johnson, ILB Deion Jones, DE Bronson Kaufusi
OT Joe Haeg, North Dakota State
David Bakhtiari, Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang will all need to be re-signed following the upcoming season and the chances of Ted Thompson keeping all three in a Packers uniform are slim at best. Haeg is a four-year starter at both left and right tackle who possesses great feet, balance and the ability to slide and shuffle.
If you’re worried about his level of competition, the former Bison held up very well in pass protection drills during Senior Bowl practices. As far as his character goes, he’s very detail-oriented and started his collegiate career as a walk-on and left as a team captain.
ILB Elandon Roberts, Houston
The University of Houston product opened some eyes during his pro day by posting outstanding numbers in the 40-yard dash, his vertical jump and bench press. On the field, Roberts is an active and instinctive inside linebacker who’s always around the ball. In addition to leading the nation in solo tackles, the Texas native also shows the skills to be an effective blitzer, who produced six sacks in his senior year. By talking to Roberts in my recent interview, I immediately sensed his love for the game of football.
OG Connor McGovern, Missouri
TT adds another big ugly to the mix with a prospect that has lined up at right tackle, left tackle and right guard. His calling card is his formidable strength. McGovern is a weight-room warrior whose raw power translates to football in the way he moves defenders while staying low. What’s more, this SEC standout does an excellent job of diagnosing blitzes, twists and stunts. At the next level, he projects as a guard, but some believe he has a future at right tackle as well.
