16. Harold Landry, EDGE, Boston College: Landry’s stock took a bit of a tumble this year but I still think he is one of the more realistic possibilities for Green Bay at 14. He is super quick off the edge and the last time Green Bay picked in this range they took another defensive player from Boston College with B.J. Raji.

17. Connor Williams, OT, Texas: Last summer Williams was projected to be a top five pick and his stock has taken a tumble but he is still worth considering in the top 15. Williams feels a bit like a boom-or-bust pick.

18. Maurice Hurst, DT, Michigan: Hurst is well-rounded but I think his specialty is as a pass rusher. The Packers need to add someone who can get to the quarterback this offseason whether it’s an interior lineman or somewhere else in the front seven.

19. Billy Price, Interior Lineman, Ohio State: Price’s versatility makes him a solid option for the Packers. Price is exceptional in pass protection and he has experience blocking for an athletic quarterback (I’m not comparing Aaron Rodgers to J.T. Barrett).

20. Orlando Brown, OT, Oklahoma: I don’t usually like offensive linemen from the Big 12 as the defense in that conference is atrocious but Brown’s size makes him an interesting target for the Packers at the right tackle position.

21. Da’Ron Payne, DT, Alabama: Payne was a hero for the Crimson Tide in the national championship and I think he could be a difference maker on the Packers defensive line. He is a physical player who will be a nightmare for interior linemen.

22. Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming: Josh Allen has a cannon and the strongest arm by far in this year’s class but his accuracy is mediocre. I would be shocked if Allen fell out of the top 10 but if he fell to 14 there is a good chance that Green Bay would get some phone calls from team’s clamoring to get him.

23. Will Hernandez, Guard, UTEP: Hernandez is one of my favorite prospects in this year’s class and I would love to see Green Bay target him in the second round as I think he will fall under the radar a bit.

24. Ronald Jones II, RB, USC: Darnold and Jones made USC’s offense super exciting this year and I love Jones’ ability in the passing game. Drafting him would bring a ton of speed to the Packers’ backfield and would make life a lot easier for Aaron Rodgers.

25. Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma: Mayfield is the most polarizing player in this year’s class but his competitiveness and creative play-making make him an intriguing option.
