The latest Green Bay Packers mock draft, analysis on Bryan Bulaga’s future and a lot more in Thursday’s Packers News Report.

Welcome to the Packers News Report.

Mock draft season is here. The latest FanSided projections have the Green Bay Packers landing Iowa cornerback Josh Jackson in the first round. Jackson is a strong candidate for the No. 14 pick, and he could have a major impact on the secondary.

It was announced earlier this week that Davante Adams would replace Julio Jones at the Pro Bowl. This is a well deserved achievement for Adams, who emerged as the team’s premier wide receiver this year.

Let’s dive into the report.

Packers news and notes from around FanSided

Bryan Bulaga injury puts new GM Brian Gutekunst in tough spot [Lombardi Ave]

Bulaga suffered the second torn ACL of his NFL career this season. Injuries have been problematic for the talented right tackle throughout his career, and it puts new general manager Brian Gutekunst in a tough spot. Given Bulaga’s high cap hit, will Gutekunst keep Bulaga in 2018?

Here’s the full FanSided mock draft that sees Josh Jackson land in Green Bay. I would personally love this pick. Yes, finding another edge rusher or two is a need, but it’s also crucial Gutekunst adds a top cornerback at some point. If Jackson is there at No. 14, he can do just that.

Green Bay will also need to add a wide receiver. Joe D’Aloisio spoke to Rick Serritella of NFL Draft Bible about first-round talent Calvin Ridley. How could Ridley fit into Mike McCarthy’s plans?
