With the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine coming to an end, here’s a look at three first-round options for the Green Bay Packers.
The scouting combine is hardly the be-all, end-all for draft prospects, but a lot can be learned. For NFL teams, it’s not just the combine drills, but also the interviews that can make a difference. The scouting combine came to an end on Monday. Who are three prospects the Green Bay Packers should consider selecting at No. 12 overall?
The Packers are set to pick twice in the opening round this April, barring a trade, and they have a number of positions to try to fix this offseason. From edge rusher to tight end to safety, general manager Brian Gutekunst will be looking for talent on both sides of the ball.
Free agency will teach us a lot, just as the combine did. During free agency, which begins next week, we’ll see if the Packers address any of their top positions of need, which could have a direct impact on their draft plan.
For example, if the Packers go out and spend big at the safety position in free agency, it’d become less likely they’d use their top selection in the draft at the position.
Following the NFL Scouting Combine, let’s take a look at three draft prospects the Packers should consider with the No. 12 overall pick.
