2. Mike McGlinchey, OT, Notre Dame

McGlinchey is one of the top tackles in college football and should be a Day One pick next spring. Towering at 6-foot-8 and 315-pounds, McGlinchey wins with length and power on the edge.

He also has surprisingly quick feet and good agility for a lineman of his size. If the Packers want to find Bryan Bulaga‘s successor at right tackle, the Notre Dame standout just may be their guy.

While he does play on the left side in college, many believe his aggressive physical playing style fits better on the right side of the line.

Even if the Packers don’t plan on moving on from Bulaga any time soon, McGlinchey would give them a reliable backup tackle who could also move over to guard if Jahri Evans or Lane Taylor get injured.

Green Bay could also look at McGlinchey’s teammate, Quenton Nelson, who is an outstanding guard prospect. However, it is highly unlikely the Packers draft a guard in the first round.
