With the 2019 NFL Draft now complete, here’s a full list of the Green Bay Packers’ selections in each round.
The Green Bay Packers entered the 2019 NFL Draft with needs at safety, edge rusher, tight end and guard. And they’ve addressed all four throughout the draft.
The Packers made three picks on offense and five on defense.
Here’s the Packers’ 2019 draft class:
Packers complete 2019 draft class
- Round 1, Pick 12: Rashan Gary, DE, Michigan
- Round 1, Pick 21: Darnell Savage, S, Maryland
- Round 2, Pick 44: Elgton Jenkins, G, Mississippi State
- Round 3, Pick 75: Jace Sternberger, TE, Texas A&M
- Round 5, Pick 150: Kingsley Keke, DT, Texas A&M
- Round 6, Pick 185: Ka’dar Hollman, CB, Toledo
- Round 6, Pick 194: Dexter Williams, RB, Notre Dame
- Round 7, Pick 226: Tyler Summers, LB, TCU
Rashan Gary was a somewhat surprising pick at No. 12, but he’s an excellent athlete with the potential to become an elite pass rusher. A risky pick? Yes, but it could end up being a very good one for the Packers. Green Bay also added depth to the defensive line later in the draft with Kingsley Keke.
While fixing the pass rush has been priority number one for general manager Brian Gutekunst throughout the spring, he’s also continued the rebuild of the secondary from last offseason. After signing Adrian Amos in free agency, Gutekunst added another potential starter at safety with Darnell Savage Jr. in the first round, then added more depth at cornerback with Ka’dar Hollman in the sixth round.
Green Bay also got an excellent addition at guard with Mississippi State’s Elgton Jenkins in the second round. Don’t be surprised if he starts in Week 1.
It was also important to select a tight end at some point in the draft, and Gutekunst waited until the third round before selecting Jace Sternberger from Texas A&M. He’ll give the Packers offense another talented pass catcher, although Marcedes Lewis is the only solid blocker at tight end on the roster.
