Packers 3-round post-combine mock draft featuring Aaron Rodgers trade
Round 3 (78): Sydney Brown, S, Illinois
Like tight end, the Packers may double down at safety this offseason. That doesn’t necessarily mean in the draft, as they could also add a free-agent safety.
In the third round, the Packers get much-needed help at safety by drafting Illinois’ Sydney Brown.
According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Brown earned the highest athleticism score among safeties.
Brown defended seven passes and made six interceptions last season, including a pick-six. He also recovered a fumble for another defensive touchdown.
The Packers need to improve at safety. If they sign a free agent and then draft Sydney Brown, they can fix one of their biggest offseason needs.
Round 4 (116): Michael Wilson, WR, Stanford
The Packers continue to add wide receiver depth in the fourth round by drafting Stanford’s Michael Wilson.
Wilson has been unlucky with injuries in recent years, but when healthy, he has the potential to become an excellent addition to Green Bay’s offense.
“Wilson checks the box from a height, weight, and speed standpoint,” wrote The Draft Network’s Damian Parson.
Wilson’s injury history is a concern, but there’s no doubting his talent and potential. He would provide great depth at wide receiver and could immediately help Green Bay’s offense.
