Packers four-round mock draft: Dream scenario with multiple trades
Round 3 (92): Phidarian Mathis, DL, Alabama
The Packers add another defensive player from Alabama here with Phidarian Mathis. Mathis, strong against the run and with plenty to offer as a pass rusher, could quickly land a starting job in Green Bay’s defense. Mathis made nine sacks in 2021.
Round 4 (111): Jelani Woods, TE, Virginia
This pick is all about upside. Jelani Woods is an incredible athlete. His RAS score of 10 out of 10 put him first among all tight ends since 1987, per Kent Lee Platte. Woods could help out as a blocker right away, but he is far from the finished product at tight end.
Woods needs development, but he has great size (6-foot-7, 275 pounds) and athleticism. He could easily be a top-100 pick.
Round 4 (117): Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati
Green Bay continues to rebuild its wide receiver corps. Alec Pierce is another excellent fit for the Packers with his athleticism and speed.
Round 4 (132): Tyrese Robinson, G, Oklahoma
The Packers add some depth to the offensive line here. Tyrese Robinson can play either guard spot. He also has some experience playing at tackle, although his best fit is at guard.
Round 4 (140): Max Mitchell, T, Louisiana
Green Bay brings in more offensive line help with Louisiana’s Max Mitchell, who can play both tackle spots and could become a starter in time.
In this mock draft, I was able to address many of the Packers’ biggest needs, although I would have liked to have found a third safety or some cornerback depth. If this draft became a reality, Green Bay might need to sign an affordable free agent at those positions.
