The latest Green Bay Packers seven-round mock draft results, an article on Quenton Nelson and more in Sunday’s Packers News Report.

Good morning and welcome to the Packers News Report for Sunday, April 22. We are now just four days away from the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

What should the Green Bay Packers do in the first round? Should they take the best defensive player available? Should they consider a wide receiver like Calvin Ridley? Should they look to trade up or down? We’ll soon know the plan.

Let’s begin the Packers News Report, rounding up the latest news and analysis from around the internet.

Why Green Bay should take a long look at Quenton Nelson if he falls [Lombardi Ave]

While many draft analysts will tell you it’s unlikely Quenton Nelson will still be on the board at No. 14, and they’re probably right, general manager Brian Gutekunst would have to seriously consider the guard if he was somehow still available. Maybe a run of quarterbacks and defensive players early will cause Nelson to slip. If he does, Gutekunst might have no other choice than to pick him.
