The Green Bay Packers have eight picks on the final day of the 2018 NFL Draft.
It was another fun evening in the draft. The Green Bay Packers used their second-round selection on cornerback Josh Jackson, before trading back into the third round to pick up linebacker Oren Burks.
They still have eight more selections to work with. That number could (and probably will) change at some point on Saturday. New general manager Brian Gutekunst has already made three trades in the draft’s opening two days. Will more follow on Saturday?
Here’s a list of the Packers’ picks on Day 3:
- Round 4, Pick 33 (133)
- Round 5, Pick 1 (138)
- Round 5, Pick 35 (172)
- Round 5, Pick 37 (174)
- Round 6, Pick 33 (207)
- Round 7, Pick 14 (232)
- Round 7, Pick 21 (239)
- Round 7, Pick 30 (248)
Green Bay still has more Day 3 picks than a number of teams have in the entire draft. Don’t be surprised if Gutekunst looks to trade up at some point. There’s still plenty of talent available.
Will the Packers turn to offense on the draft’s final day? Gutekunst was actively searching for a wide receiver in free agency. But many of the top pass catchers are now gone. Maybe the Packers will attempt to move up for a prospect like Clemson’s Deon Cain, who could be selected early on Day 3.
Gutekunst could also look to move up for an edge rusher. Florida State’s Josh Sweat could be a candidate.
So far it can be considered a strong draft for the Packers. They have addressed their biggest need at cornerback with Alexander and Jackson.
It should be an interesting final day of the draft. Gutekunst has a number of picks to work with, and the team is still searching for more help on both sides of the ball.
Which Day 3 prospects do you hope the Packers select? Should they look to trade up again in the fourth round?
