Packers mock draft #2: The double trade down

Like in the previous mock draft, Green Bay receives a first-round pick from New York in the Aaron Rodgers deal.

However, in the first mock, the Packers used the 13th and 15th picks to move up. Here, they use both to trade down.

They end up with back-to-back picks in the 20s, while also receiving two additional second-round selections.

Round 1 (24): Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

Despite moving down, Green Bay still addresses its biggest need by drafting the best tight end in the class. Dalton Kincaid can be a star with his receiving ability.

Round 1 (25): Will McDonald IV, EDGE, Iowa State

Will McDonald IV had a pre-draft visit with the Packers, and for good reason. McDonald is an excellent pass rusher and could immediately help Joe Barry’s defense.

Round 2 (45): Antonio Johnson, S, Texas A&M

With the versatility to play slot corner or safety, Antonio Johnson would provide some much-needed help in the secondary, especially if Adrian Amos isn’t re-signed.

Round 2 (56): Keeanu Benton, DL, Wisconsin

The Packers lost Jarran Reed and Dean Lowry in free agency, creating a need along the defensive line. Enter Wisconsin’s Keeanu Benton, who had 4.5 sacks in 12 games last season.

Round 2 (57): Michael Wilson, WR, Stanford

The Packers add some much-needed depth at wide receiver with Michael Wilson. His recent injury history is a concern, but he is 6-foot-2, 213 pounds, and knows how to block.

Round 3 (78): Tucker Kraft, TE, South Dakota State

A classic Brian Gutekunst double-down. When he recognizes a position of need, he often attacks it. A combination of Dalton Kincaid and Tucker Kraft? Sky-high potential.

Round 4 (116): Xavier Hutchinson, WR, Iowa State

More receiver depth here. Xavier Hutchinson could make an immediate impact as a WR3 or WR4 in Green Bay.
