We are less than two months away from the 2023 NFL Draft. How will the Green Bay Packers build their roster during the draft?

Right now, the Packers are scheduled to pick 15th in the first round, although they are in a perfect position to trade up or down, should they wish.

Assuming they stay at 15 overall, who could the Packers select in the first round? Let’s take a look at who is going to Green Bay in some recent mock drafts.

CBS Sports

Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

Josh Edwards of CBS Sports has Green Bay drafting talented Utah tight end Dalton Kincaid in the first round, a move that would make a lot of sense.

Kincaid is arguably the best pass-catching tight end in the class, and the Packers will need to draft at least one tight end if they lose Robert Tonyan and Marcedes Lewis in free agency.

Jordan Addison, WR, USC

A wide receiver in the first round? Maybe this is finally the year.

Dalton Miller of Pro Football Network believes it’s possible in his latest mock draft, with the Packers selecting USC’s Jordan Addison.

Addison would be able to contribute from Day 1, which would be important for the Packers if Aaron Rodgers returns.

Ryan McCrystal of Sharp Football Analysis also has Green Bay drafting Addison in the first round. As McCrystal notes in the mock draft, Addison’s ability to play both outside and in the slot should interest Green Bay.

Sporting News

Myles Murphy, EDGE, Clemson

Making the most of a deep edge rusher class could also make sense in the first round. Vinnie Iyer of Sporting News has Green Bay selecting Clemson pass rusher Myles Murphy with the 15th overall selection.

Murphy has Pro Bowl potential and would fix the Packers’ need for more pass-rush depth.
