At pick no. 114, the Packers use their first fourth rounder on defensive lineman Dontay Corleone out of Cincinnati and get a tremendous value. Viewed as a guy who could go anywhere from Rounds 2-4, the Packers definitely stole Corleone here.

He is one of the best run defenders in his class, and has been Cincinnati's best defensive lineman for the last two seasons now. He's a powerful, menacing force that should disallow anything like what we saw earlier in the year against Detroit from ever happening again.

With their second pick in the fourth round, the Packers make things a little interesting. This is why we're saying Jordan Love is around for at least 2024, and nothing guaranteed beyond. Spencer Rattler may not be a top quarterback prospect in this draft, but he's good enough to merit a mid-round pick and at least make Love a little uncomfortable.

But, uncomfortable is good. Love hasn't had competition like this yet, aside from being told he's the sure fire no. 2 quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers.

Rattler's attractiveness comes from his natural ability to throw the ball. His quick release and the zip he places on the ball looks great coming off his fingertips. But, he does need a bit more work on the mental aspect. Handling pressure is something he's got to get better at. Overall, he's well-worth a mid-round gamble and could develop with the right coaching. But, that's another topic, question and story entirely.
