Round 3 (88): Blake Corum, RB, Michigan

Even if the Packers find a way to keep Aaron Jones this offseason, they must consider drafting a running back on Day 2 or 3. The need will increase if the Packers move on from AJ Dillon in free agency.

Green Bay should consider the long term at running back. Even if Jones returns for another season, the Packers could find their future RB1 in this year's class while also helping the offense improve in the short term.

Michigan's Blake Corum would be a perfect complement for Jones. He wouldn't need to instantly become the featured back in Green Bay, but rotating with Jones would help the Packers' rushing attack sustain success even when Jones isn't on the field.

Corum is a touchdown machine. Bear in mind that the following numbers are correct. This is not a typo. Corum scored 58 touchdowns in his final three years at Michigan, including 28 this season. Yes—twenty-eight touchdowns.

Corum starred in Michigan's national championship win over Washington, rushing 21 times for 134 yards and two touchdowns.

Like Jones, Corum has excellent vision and can make the most of any running lane the offensive line creates. He would perfectly complement Jones in Green Bay, helping the Packers' rushing attack reach another level in 2024.
