Packers mock draft roundup: Four different wide receivers

Five different mock drafts with four different wide receivers going to the Green Bay Packers.

This mock draft roundup perfectly highlights the number of talented wide receivers in this year’s class.

Even if we knew for certain the Green Bay Packers would pick a receiver at No. 30, we’d still have absolutely no idea who they’d select.

Before we get into the roundup, I’d like to point you in the direction of an excellent article by Lombardi Ave’s Christian Borman. He put together four separate mock drafts based on different possibilities in free agency. For example, one mock draft is based on signing Austin Hooper in free agency.

With the First Pick, Cory Kinnan

Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU

Cory Kinnan of With the First Pick put together a seven-round mock for the Packers, with Jalen Reagor the choice in the first round. Kinnan writes that despite Reagor’s 40-yard time not being as fast as many expected, it shouldn’t cause him to fall in the draft.

Nobody should be worried about his speed. He can still run right by defenders and is a great deep threat.

NFL.com, Cynthia Frelund

Brandon Aiyuk, Arizona State

Cynthia Frelund of NFL.com also has the Packers going wide receiver in the first round with Brandon Aiyuk out of Arizona State. This is an interesting mock draft as it’s analytics-based. Frelund writes about Aiyuk’s yards-after-catch ability, which is something we didn’t see enough from the Packers’ receivers in 2019.

The Draft Network, Trevor Sikkema

Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor

Get used to seeing Denzel Mims’ name linked to the Packers at No. 30 overall, as is the case in The Draft Network’s latest mock draft by Trevor Sikkema. Mims backed up an excellent performance at the Senior Bowl with a dominant display at the NFL Scouting Combine. The question now is whether he should be taken in the first round. Many draft analysts believe the answer is yes.

CBS Sports, Will Brinson

Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU

It’s fascinating how each mock draft so far has the Packers taking a receiver first, but none have chosen the same player. In his latest mock, Will Brinson of CBS Sports has the Packers going with LSU’s Justin Jefferson, who could be best suited in the slot. Many draft analysts believe Jefferson would be a great WR2 in many offenses, which is the role he’d take on alongside Davante Adams in Green Bay.

Sports Illustrated, Kevin Hanson

Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma

At last, a defensive pick. Kevin Hanson of Sports Illustrated has the Packers trading up three spots in this mock draft, swapping places with the Seattle Seahawks to select Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray. These two teams have traded in the first round of the previous two drafts, so it won’t be a surprise to see a deal like this take place.

Murray could immediately start in Mike Pettine’s defense and help fill the void left by Blake Martinez should he depart in free agency.
