Round 2 (41): Kamren Kinchens, S, Miami (FL)

The Green Bay Packers continue to reshape their secondary in this mock draft scenario with Kamren Kinchens, the ball-hawking safety out of Miami.

Here's the reason we could see the Packers prioritize safety in this year's draft: The decision looming regarding Darnell Savage. I have a hunch that if the Packers ultimately decide to move on from defensive coordinator Joe Barry, they could use that as a recruiting pitch to bring Savage back.

If not, Gutekunst will be looking for a replacement for his former first-round pick. And here, he gets what some might consider a first-round value. Athletic limitations (or testing) could ultimately push Kinchens out of round one, and the Packers could cash in on someone that has the chance to change games with his aggressive style of play.

Round 2 (52): Blake Corum, RB, Michigan

After what we saw during Michigan's National Championship run, I don't think any Green Bay Packers fan would be opposed to adding Blake Corum to the running back stable. The Packers could be moving on from one or both of AJ Dillon and Aaron Jones this offseason, though it feels more likely than not that one of them is back.

Either way, Green Bay needs a jolt to its running game, and what Corum lacks in ridiculous metrics, he more than makes up for with vision, tackle-breaking abilities, burst to the second level, and the ability to read his blocks.

He should become a fan favorite rather quickly.
