Round 3 (78): Christopher Smith, S, Georgia

As the Packers begin the offseason, safety is one of their biggest needs. It wouldn’t be a surprise if they doubled down at the position in the draft.

Adrian Amos is a free agent and Darnell Savage only has a year remaining on his deal. Both in the short-term and long-term, safety is an area of need for Green Bay.

The Packers drafted Georgia defenders Eric Stokes, Quay Walker, and Devonte Wyatt over the past two years.

Maybe they add a fourth with safety Christopher Smith. Smith has made six interceptions over the past two seasons and could start immediately.

“Smith is one of the top safeties in the 2023 NFL Draft. At a position where lone weaknesses can be debilitating, Smith has no glaring flaws,” wrote Pro Football Network’s Ian Cummings.

Round 3 (94): Andrew Vorhees, G, USC

Elgton Jenkins is the Packers’ best left guard, but they could potentially look to upgrade one of the other interior offensive line positions. If nothing else, the Packers need more depth.

USC’s Andrew Vorhees could compete for a starting job immediately.

“Expectations for Vorhees should be that of a player who can make an instant impact up front,” wrote The Draft Network’s Kyle Crabbs.

Vorhees could finally end Green Bay’s third-round curse.
