This is the range the Packers will most likely find their first-round pick. Tre’Davious White would be great value at the end of the first round if he’s still on the board.
There’s also a handful of edge rushers with second-round grades who could make a case for the end of the first round. For me, there’s very little separating Takk McKinley, Charles Harris, Derek Rivers, T.J. Watt, and Taco Charlton. Out of this group it really comes down to personal preference and scheme fit. Rivers and Watt in particular have the athleticism and length to play outside linebacker in the Packers 3-4 defense.
Tim Williams is an electric pass rusher who at one point looked like a top-10 pick. However, off-field issues and a questionable work ethic that has led to a lackluster pre-draft workout performance has really hurt his overall draft stock. His game tape is still very impressive, but he is a boom-or-bust prospect.
Similarly, former Florida defensive lineman Caleb Brantley has first-round talent but comes with red flags. He could drop to Day 3 of the draft or even go undrafted after news recently surfaced he’s facing battery charges for striking a woman.
Vanderbilt’s Zach Cunningham and Florida’s Jarrad Davis are two exciting linebacker prospects who are athletic and make plays all over the field. They’re early Day 2 prospects, but Green Bay might be tempted to select one if by chance they’re still available at the end of the second round.
