1. DT Andrew Billings, Baylor
What he would bring to Green Bay: The Packers are on the hunt for a nose tackle who can dominate at the heart of the line against both the run and pass. Billings can help collapse the pocket from an interior position, but his best work comes against the run.
Billings is a true 3-4 nose tackle who on his day is impossible to block. He made regular appearances in opposing backfields while at Baylor, and his potential as a run-stuffer could be too hard to pass up.
Why the pick would make sense: Without B.J. Raji and Mike Pennel (for four games), the Packers are particularly thin up front. They not only need someone to help fill the void left by Raji, but an upgrade.
Billings paired with Mike Daniels could make a major difference up front on defense. The Baylor Bear often commanded double teams and can dominate when left one-on-one.
If the Packers can do a better job disrupting rushing attacks in the trenches, the issues felt at inside linebacker the past few years will be eased. Billings can be the true nose tackle the defense desperately needs.
