The Green Bay Packers made 11 selections in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The final day of the 2018 NFL Draft is complete, and it’s been a busy one for the Green Bay Packers.
Surprisingly, they didn’t make any trades on the final day, instead making all eight selections. New general manager Brian Gutekunst focused on offense on Day 3.
Here is the Packers’ draft class in full:
Packers 2018 draft class
Round 1 (18): Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville
Round 2 (45): Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa
Round 3 (88): Oren Burks, LB, Vanderbilt
Round 4 (133): J’Mon Moore, WR, Missouri
Round 5 (138): Cole Madison, T, Washington State
Round 5 (172): JK Scott, P, Alabama
Round 5 (174): Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, South Florida
Round 6 (207): Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame
Round 7 (232): James Looney, DE, California
Round 7 (239): Hunter Bradley, LS, Mississippi State
Round 7 (248): Kendall Donnerson, EDGE, Southeast Missouri St.
Overall, it looks to be a solid class. Gutekunst did well to land two premier cornerbacks in Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson in the opening couple of rounds. That was the team’s biggest need entering the draft.
They also needed to find another wide receiver. Gutekunst took three. Between J’Mon Moore, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Equanimeous St. Brown, the wide receiver room should have plenty of talent coming in. The hope is these three pass catchers have a similar impact to last year’s Day 3 running back selections Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones.
Gutekunst also made some surprising picks on the final day, such as punter JK Scott and long snapper Hunter Bradley. But every position is important, and with the luxury of picking 11 times, he was able to use a couple of selections to strengthen special teams.
Another surprise is the lack of edge rushers in this class. Green Bay took one with its final pick, Kendall Donnerson.
