Round 3 (70): Trey Benson, RB, Florida State

The Packers need a left tackle. They need a wide receiver. They (might) need a quarterback. We can likely add running back to the list.

It's hard to believe both Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon will return in 2024. Jones's cap hit will become a problem next season, while Dillon's contract expires in the spring. Green Bay may even lose both, placing running back near the top of the offseason to-do list.

Florida State's Trey Benson can become a three-down back in the NFL. He is 6-foot-1 and 211 pounds and has good speed and physicality. He can also contribute as a receiver.

This season, Benson has rushed for 721 yards and 10 touchdowns at an impressive average of 6.4 yards per attempt. He is on track for similar numbers to last season, when he put up 990 rushing yards and nine touchdowns, also at 6.4 yards per carry.

Benson isn't on Aaron Jones' level when it comes to receiving, but he has potential. Over the past two seasons, Benson has caught 30 passes for 358 yards and a touchdown.

Emanuel Wilson could play a more significant role on offense next season, but the Packers may need a new RB1 if Jones and Dillon depart. Benson has the talent to start right away.
