The Green Bay Packers undoubtedly have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL already, but with changes looming in 2024, general manager Brian Gutekunst and head coach Matt LaFleur have their work cut out for them once again, reshaping and retooling on both sides of the ball. The good news is they enter the offseason with the QB situation in a good spot.
How do you build around this potential contender in the NFC North? How do you make sure you've got depth across the board?
Well, the Packers have a pretty loaded war chest of draft selections in 2024, and Gutekunst has been hitting at every level of the NFL Draft lately. Let's see what he could do with the bounty of picks the Packers have available to them in the 2024 NFL Draft.
Round 1 (19): Terrion Arnold, CB, Alabama
Terrion Arnold is slowly but surely creeping up NFL Draft boards, so you may only be able to see him projected to the Packers a couple more times before his stock rises out of their range. With that being said, Arnold was available with the pick I had in the simulator I used, so you take what the simulator gives within the realm of "realism."
Although, what does that really mean in a mock draft?
Dane Brugler of The Athletic has Terrion Arnold as his top cornerback prospect in this draft class. That typically means the guy is going somewhere within the top 10 picks but not every NFL Draft class goes the same. The Packers could very well be in the market for a cornerback with Eric Stokes continually struggling with injuries and Jaire Alexander potentially not in the team's future plans.
