Round 3 (92): Max Mitchell, T, Louisiana

The Packers keep their original pick in the third round and strengthen at another position of need. With wide receiver, edge rusher, and defensive tackle all addressed, they turn their attention to the offensive line.

The Packers’ starting tackles should be David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins when fully healthy. Yosh Nijman is the backup. But there’s no doubt Green Bay’s offensive line depth took a hit this offseason with Billy Turner, Lucas Patrick, and Dennis Kelly all departing. With Bakhtiari and Jenkins coming off significant injuries and Jenkins possibly out for the start of the 2022 season, it makes sense to add another tackle here.’s Lance Zierlein noted that “Mitchell has the athletic traits and hand quickness to make a living as a left or right tackle”.

The Packers love that kind of versatility along the offensive line. Initially, Mitchell could compete with Nijman to cover for Jenkins and provide important depth throughout the season. And should Mitchell impress and win a starting job, an option would be to move Jenkins back to guard, where he was a Pro Bowler in 2020.

The Packers need to upgrade their offensive line depth whether that’s at tackle or the interior positions. Mitchell in the third round would make sense.
