Packers seven-round mock draft #1

Round 1 (22): Drake London, WR, USC

This would be a dream start for the Packers. Drake London could go in the top 10. If he’s there at No. 22, it should be an easy call for Brian Gutekunst. Future WR1.

Round 1 (28): Tyler Smith, OT, Tulsa

With receiver addressed, it’s hard to argue with an offensive lineman at No. 28. Tyler Smith offers some versatility as he could potentially play at tackle and guard. A solid pick.

Round 2 (53): Carson Strong, QB, Nevada

Oh wow. This would be sure to go down well among Packers fans. With Aaron Rodgers returning and Jordan Love still on the roster, this would make absolutely zero sense.

Round 2 (59): Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati

Round 2 feels a little early for Myjai Sanders. Lance Zierlein of gave him a Round 5-6 draft projection. Going EDGE early makes sense, but Nik Bonitto was still on the board.

Round 3 (92): Cole Strange, OG, Chattanooga

Good value here for the Packers. Cole Strange would strengthen the interior offensive line depth. He could play guard and center.

Round 4 (132): Alontae Taylor, CB, Tennessee

Don’t rule out the Packers adding cornerback depth in the draft. Even with a strong top three, they lack depth. Alontae Taylor would help, and he can also feature on special teams.

Round 4 (140): Jelani Woods, TE, Virginia

Jelani Woods’ upside makes this a good pick. He is a phenomenal athlete. His Relative Athletic Score of 10 ranked first among all tight ends since 1987, according to Kent Lee Platte. He needs time to develop but the upside is obvious.

Round 5 (171): Tyler Goodson, RB, Iowa

It wouldn’t be all that surprising if the Packers added some competition for the RB3 spot. No real complaints here.

Round 7 (228): Luke Wattenberg, C, Washington

Round 7 (249): Spencer Burford, OT, UTSA

Round 7 (258): Jalen Nailor, WR, Michigan State

Overall grade: C+

A solid first round with the Packers finding their future WR1 and some help along the offensive line. However, the decision to pick a QB on Day 2 would be a huge mistake. This mock has Green Bay going strong on offensive line depth, but it feels not enough work was done at safety, edge rusher, or receiver.
