Green Bay Packers seven-round mock draft following first week of free agency
By Dan Dahlke
It has been an eventful week in free agency for the Green Bay Packers. They lost key players like T.J. Lang, Eddie Lacy, Jared Cook, and Micah Hyde.
However, they also shocked the NFL world by signing three veteran free agents in Martellus Bennett, Lance Kendricks, and former Packer Davon House. Not to mention in perhaps their best move so far in the offseason, they re-signed Nick Perry to a cost effective five-year deal.
While it seems the Packers have let a lot of talent walk out the door, they have shored up the tight end position with Bennett and Kendricks, while also taking the first step in repairing their secondary.
Green Bay may still have a move or two left in free agency, but at this point, it’s clear which positions on their roster they need to address in the NFL Draft. They still need another starting-caliber cornerback, as well as a guard and running back who can be immediately put in the lineup.
They could also use another young pass rusher to develop behind Perry and Clay Matthews, as well as depth at inside linebacker, wide receiver, and defensive line.
With so many things changing with the NFL Combine and a week of free agency in the books, it’s time to take another look at how all seven rounds could unfold for the Packers in the draft this April.
