Round 2 (43): Jalin Hyatt, WR, Tennessee

The Packers need to add more wide receiver depth, and Jalin Hyatt would be a phenomenal second-round choice. He has lightning speed and is at his best on deep routes. Adding him to an offense already featuring Christian Watson would be unfair on opposing defenses.

Round 2 (45): BJ Ojulari, EDGE, LSU

Adding more pass-rush depth should also be a priority for the Packers.

The Draft Network’s Keith Sanchez wrote that BJ Ojulari has “high upside as a pass rusher”. And that’s not surprising, as Ojulari has made 12.5 sacks in his past 23 games for LSU.

Ojulari would be a great addition to the pass-rush rotation next to Rashan Gary, Preston Smith, and Kingsley Enagbare, and he could become a starter in time.

Round 2 (56): Antonio Johnson, S, Texas A&M

The Packers also need a safety with Adrian Amos still a free agent. Antonio Johnson would add versatility to the secondary. He could start at safety but can also play slot corner.

“Johnson is a playmaker around the line of scrimmage,” wrote Michael Renner of Pro Football Focus, who has Johnson second in his safety rankings.

Round 3 (78): Xavier Hutchinson, WR, Iowa State

Xavier Hutchinson checks all the boxes the Packers look for in a wide receiver. He is 6-foot-2, 203 pounds, and would add even more depth to the receiving corps.

Pro Football Network’s Tony Pauline was impressed by Hutchinson’s performance at the Iowa State Pro Day.

“Star wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson looked tremendous in position drills. His route running was crisp and sharp,” wrote Pauline.
