Ranking each Brian Gutekunst draft pick as Green Bay Packers GM prior to 2022.

Brian Gutekunst took over as Green Bay Packers general manager in 2018.

He has since led five draft classes, in the process helping the Packers repeatedly knock on the door of the Super Bowl.

In this article, we will look back over his draft history and rank every pick.

Note: This doesn’t include the 2022 NFL Draft as they are yet to play a single snap. The draft picks are from 2018-21.

36. WR J’Mon Moore

As a fourth-round pick, the Packers had high hopes for J’Mon Moore. But after making just two catches as a rookie, Green Bay moved on after one season.

35. OL Cole Madison

Selected one pick after Moore, Cole Madison never played a snap for the Packers. He tore his ACL in 2019 before being waived after a failed physical in 2020.

34. OL Simon Stepaniak

Simon Stepaniak was one of three offensive linemen drafted by Gutekunst in 2020. He didn’t play a single game and retired in 2021.

33. EDGE Kendall Donnerson

Kendall Donnerson was selected in the seventh round in 2018 but was released a year later after never playing a snap in the regular season. He has since signed with five different teams.

32. EDGE James Looney

It was a similar story for James Looney, who was drafted in the same round as Kendall Donnerson. He was active for three games during his time in Green Bay but has been out of the league since 2019.

31. C Jake Hanson

The Packers have never had the confidence to give Jake Hanson many opportunities at center. He has played just 19 total snaps in two years, per Pro Football Reference, and faces an uphill battle to make the roster this season.

30. LS Hunter Bradley

Hunter Bradley played in 56 games for the Packers over four seasons, but the team moved in a different direction last year after he struggled for form.

29. ILB Isaiah McDuffie

Drafted only a year ago, there is still time for Isaiah McDuffie to make an impact. He was limited to special teams as a rookie and, with the team’s depth at inside linebacker, will need to make an impact on fourth down again this season.

28. RB Dexter Williams

Due to the Packers’ great running back depth, opportunities were few and far between for Dexter Williams. However, he only averaged 2.7 yards per carry on seven regular season attempts.
