Round 6 (217): Daequan Hardy, CB, Penn State

The Packers add more competition at cornerback in the sixth round. Penn State's Daequan Hardy spent most of his time lined up in the slot but also has experience at outside corner. He made seven pass defenses and two interceptions this season.

Hardy offers special teams value as an electric punt returner. This season, he returned 17 punts for 248 yards and two touchdowns, earning second-team All-Big Ten honors as a return specialist.

Round 6 (219): Rasheen Ali, RB, Marshall

Green Bay will need to improve its running back depth if AJ Dillon departs in free agency. After drafting a potential Dillon replacement in Braelon Allen earlier on, the Packers add competition with Marshall's Rasheen Ali.

Ali dominated at Marshall, rushing for 2,809 yards and 39 touchdowns over the past three seasons, and he only played three games in 2022. Assuming Aaron Jones is back, Green Bay would have good depth with Allen, Ali, and Emanuel Wilson.

Round 7 (246): Erick All, TE, Iowa

Tight end isn't a need for the Packers, but they could add another developmental prospect if Josiah Deguara leaves in free agency. Iowa's Erick All caught 21 passes for 299 yards and three touchdowns this season and could eventually compete for the No. 3 job behind Luke Musgrave and Tucker Kraft in Green Bay. All is currently recovering from a season-ending knee injury.
