Round 4 (119): Khyree Jackson, CB, Oregon

It won't be surprising if the Packers take multiple cornerbacks in the draft. Oregon's Khyree Jackson could be a steal in the fourth round.

Jackson spent two seasons at Alabama before transferring to Oregon this season. He was impressive in 12 games, making seven pass defenses, three interceptions, and two sacks. The 6-foot-3 corner would strengthen the Packers' depth. With Jaire Alexander, Eric Stokes, Carrington Valentine, Cooper DeJean, and Jackson, Green Bay would have plenty of options at the position.

Round 4 (135): Braelon Allen, RB, Wisconsin

With uncertainty at running back, the Packers may need to double down. Wisconsin's Braelon Allen would be an ideal AJ Dillon replacement. He is a powerful runner at 6-foot-2, 235 pounds, and would be perfect for December games at Lambeau Field.

Allen needs to improve in pass protection and as a receiver to thrive in Matt LaFleur's offense, but there's no denying his potential as a runner. He can wear down defenses. Allen has 3,494 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns over the past three seasons at Wisconsin.

Round 6 (197): Darius Robinson, EDGE, Missouri

If the Packers don't bring Preston Smith back, Lukas Van Ness will likely replace him in the starting lineup. But if they move on from the veteran pass rusher, they will need to strengthen their depth at some point in the draft. Missouri's Darius Robinson is developing as a pass rusher -- he improved from 3.5 sacks to 8.5 this season -- but his biggest strength is his run defense, an area the Packers must improve.
