Round 3 (83): Javon Bullard, S, Georgia

Safety could sit near the top of the offseason to-do list, depending on how free agency goes. Four safeties have started games for the Packers in 2023. Three of them are free agents in the offseason: Darnell Savage, Jonathan Owens, and Rudy Ford.

Green Bay has already drafted three Georgia defenders in the early rounds in recent years. Safety Javon Bullard is a player to watch in 2024. Like Cooper DeJean, Bullard would add versatility to the Packers' secondary. He can play at multiple positions, with plenty of experience in the slot. Bullard has eight pass defenses and four interceptions over the past two seasons and could make an immediate impact in Green Bay.

Round 3 (88): Trey Benson, RB, Florida State

Running back will be a priority if the Packers move on from Aaron Jones or AJ Dillon (or both). Florida State's Trey Benson would be a great fit in Green Bay's offense. He is 6-foot-1, 223 pounds, and forces missed tackles for fun. He is explosive and powerful and could lead a new-look Packers backfield.

"This is a supercharged human pinball," writes Athlon Sports' Kyle Crabbs.

In two seasons at Florida State, Benson had 2,267 yards from scrimmage and 24 total touchdowns. Benson could be the Packers' next starting running back if they don't bring back Jones.
