Round 4 (134): Ray Davis, RB, Kentucky

The future of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon will determine whether the Packers need to draft a running back. Dillon made a slow start to the season but has played tough, physical football over the past month. It could land him a new deal in Green Bay.

Jones's future is less clear. His age and recent injury history are concerning, and the Packers need to do something to lower his upcoming $17.72 million cap hit.

One option for Green Bay is to re-sign Dillon to a short-term deal and move on from Jones. Dillon would provide stability at running back, and the way he is playing is impressive.

Kentucky's Ray Davis would be the perfect complement to Dillon in the backfield. He is having a dominant first season for Kentucky, rushing for 990 yards and 12 touchdowns at an impressive 5.8 yards per attempt. His receiving ability makes him an ideal replacement for Jones, having caught 25 passes for 266 yards and five touchdowns this year.

Davis has the speed to fly past defenders when he has the ball in space, but he is also so strong when fighting for yards after contact. There's a lot to like about Davis' game, and he would be a fun addition to Matt LaFleur's offense.
