Round 2 (40): Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State

Many view Keon Coleman as a first-rounder, but he was still available in the mock draft simulator, making it too good of an opportunity to pass up. The Packers don't desperately need to add another wide receiver, but Coleman has star potential and could be an X receiver in Green Bay's offense.

"Coleman has everything you want to be a team's No. 1 option and will likely be a difference-maker early on in his NFL career," writes The Draft Network's Brentley Weissman.

Coleman is 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, and makes contested catches look easy. He would instantly become a go-to target for Jordan Love, a receiver he can trust to make tough catches on third down and in the red zone.

Round 2 (51): Jackson Powers-Johnson, C, Oregon

Green Bay may look to upgrade its interior offensive line positions in the draft. Josh Myers' play has improved in the second half of the season, but he is far from guaranteed to be the 2024 starter at center. Oregon's Jackson Powers-Johnson can become an excellent longtime starter in the NFL.

Ian Cummings of Pro Football Network writes: "The 21-year-old already looks and feels like a high-level NFL starter at the fulcrum. His composite profile helped him win the Rimington Trophy in 2023, and that same profile should help him become an impact NFL starter early in his career."

Powers-Johnson does have previous experience at guard, but he played exclusively at center in 2023. He would immediately push Myers for the starting job in Green Bay.
