Round 4 (116): Ji’Ayir Brown, S, Penn State

The Packers could lose multiple safeties in free agency, including Adrian Amos, who has started every game since joining the team in 2019.

Green Bay added Brian Branch earlier in this mock, but with Branch potentially being best suited to playing in the slot, the Packers would need a new starter at safety.

Penn State’s Ji’Ayir Brown has the potential to become an excellent starter. And, like Branch, he has the versatility to line up at multiple positions in the secondary.

The Packers would now have Branch, Brown, and Rasul Douglas, all capable of playing different positions in the secondary.

“Brown is a versatile player with Pro Bowl potential,” wrote NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah.

Over the past two seasons at Penn State, Brown has made eight pass defenses and 10 interceptions, returning one for a touchdown.

The Packers would have a ton of talent in the secondary. With Jaire Alexander, Eric Stokes, Rasul Douglas, Brian Branch, Darnell Savage, and Ji’Ayir Brown, the Packers’ secondary would have the potential to be as good as any in the NFL.

One of the team’s biggest offseason needs, it won’t be surprising if the Packers double down at safety, just as Brian Gutekunst has done with other positions of need in previous years.
