With Cory Littleton signed

Like Austin Hooper, Cory Littleton will fetch a hefty price. Littleton, however, may be a safe bet to spend the money on. PackerReport’s Andy Herman wrote a great article talking about what Littleton would bring to the Packers and how he would be a safe investment for the Packers, even though he would be pricey.

Littleton would be able to do a lot of the things Blake Martinez did, but more. Littleton is just 26 years old and would give the Packers some very productive four to five seasons.

Signing Littleton would open up the Packers’ draft a bit, but it would also mean Bulaga is likely gone. In this draft, I focused more on offense early, feeling better that Littleton would be in the middle of the defense.

Round 1 (30):  WR Jalen Reagor – TCU

Round 2 (62): TE Cole Kmet – Notre Dame

Round 3 (94): OT Ben Bart – St. Johns

Round 4 (126): DL Jordan Elliott – Missouri

Round 5 (157): WR Michael Pittman Jr. – USC

Round 6 (172): OL Yasir Durant – Missouri

Round 6 (189): CB Nevelle Clarke – UCF

Round 7 (201): DL – James Lynch – Baylor

Round 7 (219): S Shyheim Carter – Alabama

In this scenario, going for a receiver was the top priority. Jalen Reagor and Michael Pittman would be some nice additions to LaFleur’s offense. Reagor can create with the ball in his hands while Pittman provides a big target for Rodgers to throw to.

Without the Packers signing Hooper, Cole Kmet would be a nice second tight end to pair with Sternberger. He is a big 6-foot-4 tight end who can run pretty well for his size. He ran a 4.7 40-yard dash at the Combine.

Jordan Elliott provides some depth on the defensive line for the Packers. Outside of Kenny Clark, the Packers’ defensive line was nothing to brag about. Grabbing Elliott and James Lynch should give the Packers some options at the position in training camp.

Yasir Durant is a very large human being. He is 6-foot-7 and weighs 330 pounds. Despite his size, he is still relatively quick with his feet. Having the option to plug Durant inside would give the Packers some flexibility to possibly move Turner or Jenkins outside if they can’t find a suitable replacement for Bulaga.
