The Green Bay Packers should leave the 2023 NFL Draft satisfied with the selections they made. General manager Brian Gutekunst put together an impressive class, helping the Packers improve their roster with players at several positions of need.

Only time will tell whether this draft was a home run, a complete failure, or somewhere in between.

It was a class focused on helping Jordan Love, with the Packers selecting two tight ends, three wide receivers, and a running back.

The Packers added many potential starters to the roster and got great value along the way, but they also made picks they could end up regretting.

Packers draft picks they got right: DL Karl Brooks

Love, love, love this pick for the Packers. Karl Brooks was going as early as the third round in many mock drafts, and he was No. 99 in Pro Football Focus' rankings of the top prospects in the class.

"Brooks was one of the most productive defensive linemen in college football last season. And the 296-pounder did it all at edge defender," wrote Michael Renner of PFF.

The fact the Packers got Brooks in the sixth round is incredible. He made an impressive 10 sacks and 18 tackles for loss at Bowling Green last season.

Brooks will likely play an interior position mostly for the Packers, although he also has experience on the edge. His versatility and ability to generate pressure on quarterbacks will get him on the field early in his career.

The Packers got an absolute steal with Brooks on Day 3 of the draft.
