2018 NFL Draft Day 2 mock: Packers upgrade receiving corps in two-round mock

BATON ROUGE, LA - OCTOBER 01: Derrius Guice /

The opening night of the 2018 NFL Draft was exciting, but Day 2 has the potential to be just as fun. Here is a definitive prediction for the second and third rounds.

The Green Bay Packers decided to upgrade their secondary and address a crucial need yesterday. There are still a lot of holes that need to be filled on their roster, but the same goes for every other team in the NFL.

In my second mock draft of the week, I will try and predict how the second day of this year’s NFL Draft will pan out. The top players in this year’s draft are all off the board but there are still plenty of good players out there.

Some of these names include guys like Joshua Jackson, Will Hernandez and Harold Landry. A lot of these guys at one point were expected to go in the first round, but have slipped through the cracks and will hopefully go tonight instead.

There is a chance that one of the guys I just listed above could fall to Green Bay in the second round, but even if they don’t the Packers should still be in very good shape with talented guys at positions of need. They might not be the caliber of a Will Hernandez or Harold Landry, but are still good players such as D.J. Chark or Ronnie Harrison.
