Packers Draft 2021: Complete Draft Order Round 1-7
The wait is over. Green Bay Packers fans will finally find out who their team is picking in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft later tonight.
The Packers own the 29th overall pick currently. Unless they trade up, there will be a long wait before they hit the clock in the opening round tonight. However, they have the draft picks to trade up should they wish, so it can’t be ruled out.
Of course, the draft begins tonight but takes place over three days. The first round will be held tonight, the second and third rounds on Friday, and the fourth to seventh rounds on Saturday.
How many times are the Packers scheduled to pick throughout the three-day event? Below is a list of their picks entering the draft, although this could change with trades, of course.
Green Bay Packers 2021 draft picks
- Round 1 (No. 29 overall)
- Round 2 (No. 62 overall)
- Round 3 (No. 92 overall)
- Round 4 (No. 135 overall)
- Round 4 (No. 142 overall)
- Round 5 (No. 173 overall)
- Round 5 (No. 178 overall)
- Round 6 (No. 214 overall)
- Round 6 (No. 220 overall)
- Round 7 (No. 256 overall)
What’s good for the Packers is that they own a total of 10 picks, giving them more opportunities to add talent to the roster or to package picks together in a trade.
If there’s bad news, it’s that they pick late in each round and the majority of their picks are later on. So while they do have the benefit of picking 10 times, seven of those picks are from No. 135 overall onwards. Green Bay only picks twice inside the top-90 overall.
As a result of reaching the NFC Championship Game last season, the Packers won’t pick until 29th overall in the draft. However, Green Bay jumped up from No. 27 to No. 18 in 2018, No. 30 to No. 21 in 2019, and No. 30 to No. 26 in 2020. To say Brian Gutekunst might trade up is a realistic possibility might be an understatement. He’s done it in all three of his draft classes.
Who are you hoping Green Bay selects in the first round tonight?
