The Green Bay Packers will look to add depth to the roster on the last day of the NFL draft. Who are some athletes the Packers could select?

Despite some surprisingly early activity, the Green Bay Packers have become quiet in their free agent acquisitions. While signing a cornerback or two still is not out of the question, it’s likely the Packers are looking to the draft, once again, to address major needs.

The 2018 draft has a lot of talent on the defensive side of the ball. The chances of finding starting-quality talent late in the draft are highly possible this year.

The Packers have been successful in finding those impact players late in the draft, specifically on day three. Most recently, the Packers selected two running backs who became rookie sensations in 2017. Jamaal Williams was taken in the fourth round while Aaron Jones was selected in the fifth round.

More notable day three pickups for the Packers include Blake Martinez, Aaron Ripkowski, Corey Linsley and Mike Daniels.

However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows when the Packers select players on day three. Obviously, not every selection will become a key starter. For every Martinez and Daniels, you have a Christian Ringo and Marshall Newhouse.

The Packers have ample opportunities to find their next key contributors on day three. Nine of the 12 picks will take place on the final day of the draft, barring any trades.

Here are some players the Packers should consider with those picks.
