Round 2 (43): Jackson Powers-Johnson, C, Oregon

The Packers have repeatedly said Josh Myers is playing the best football of his career, but they should still search for an upgrade at the center position. Outside of Zach Tom and Elgton Jenkins, the Packers can improve at every position along the offensive line.

Oregon's Jackson Powers-Johnson has been impressive this season. Very impressive. The clue is in his name. He plays with power.

"An outstanding run-blocker, he has the power to latch on to defenders and finish. He plays with an aggressive demeanor, and his physicality has been infectious on the Ducks' offensive front," writes ESPN's Jordan Reid.

Powers-Johnson is an ascending player who would immediately give Myers competition for the starting job and could quickly overtake him on the depth chart. Last week, Powers-Johnson lost a shoe on a play, but instead of putting it back on, he continued with one shoe and still dominated. That's the kind of player you want starting at center.

After finding an excellent run-blocking tackle in the first round, the Packers upgrade their ground game again by drafting Powers-Johnson. He would provide some of the run-blocking ability this offensive line desperately needs.

The real winner is Jordan Love, and we've got even more good news for him in the next round.
