Round 3 (74): Kris Abrams-Draine, CB, Missouri

As previously mentioned, the secondary for the Green Bay Packers could be getting a major makeover this offseason. I wouldn't even be shocked to see them pursue some bigger-name free agents or trade targets if the opportunity arises.

But the NFL Draft will provide at least a contributor or two to the Green Bay secondary, if not a starter or two. At cornerback, we have just seen Jaire Alexander suspended for conduct detrimental to the team. Rasul Douglas was traded to the Bills. Eric Stokes playing in games has been more rare than a lunar eclipse.

The Packers need corners and Kris Abrams-Draine is a "dawg" in the secondary who has broken up 26 passes over the last two seasons, picking off four in 2023.

Round 3 (88): TreVeyon Henderson, RB, Ohio State

Full disclosure here, it's very possible (if not probable) that Henderson won't be available at this pick slot, but he was in the simulation I ran. And when weird things happen in the NFL Draft, good GMs take advantage.

With the futures of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon very much up in the air, I think we could see the Packers prioritize running back as high as round two. So perhaps the Ohio State star could be an option for Green Bay earlier than this, if not at pick No. 88 overall.

Round 4 (114): Cedric Gray, LB, North Carolina

Among the players who have potentially played their way out of the Green Bay Packers' 2024 plans is linebacker De'Vondre Campbell. With that in mind, I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that we could see Green Bay make the linebacker position one of their top priorities.

And here, we get a potential steal in North Carolina linebacker Cedric Gray. Gray is a big-time playmaker with 266 tackles over the last two seasons, along with 23 tackles for loss, six sacks, and five forced fumbles.
