Round 2 (38): Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Here we go. The Packers don't land one of the top quarterback prospects on Day 1, but they use one of their two second-round picks on LSU's Jayden Daniels.

Considering the incredible season he is having, Daniels is likely flying up draft boards. He has thrown for 3,164 yards, 30 touchdowns, and only four interceptions while rushing for an unbelievable 918 yards and eight touchdowns in 10 games this year.

"Daniels has completely reworked his game in the pocket, dicing up defenses with his quick processing ability, anticipation, smooth mechanics, accuracy, and situational precision," writes Ian Cummings of Pro Football Network.

According to ESPN, Daniels became the first player in FBS history to throw for 350 yards and rush for 200 yards in the same game last week. It was a record-breaking performance, and one that should put him on the Packers' radar in the upcoming draft. He is a playmaker and continues to turn heads this season.

The LSU quarterback could force his way into the first-round conversation. That's how impressive he has been. But Daniels was available at No. 38 overall using the mock draft simulator, making it an opportunity too good to pass up for the Packers.
