The Green Bay Packers have lost five of their past six games, including defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10.

It doesn't do much for the team now, and it's not fun to watch the Packers lose games. Where it helps them is in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Barring something dramatic in the second half of the season that sees Green Bay pick up a bunch of wins, this team will be picking early in the first round of the draft. The Packers could end up with a top-five selection.

After Week 10, they moved one step closer.

  16. Las Vegas Raiders (5-5)
  17. Buffalo Bills (5-5)
  18. Cincinnati Bengals (5-4)
  19. New Orleans Saints (5-5)
  20. Arizona Cardinals - from Houston Texans (5-4)
  21. Minnesota Vikings (6-4)
  22. Dallas Cowboys (6-3)
  23. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-3)
  24. Houston Texans - from Cleveland Browns (6-3)
  25. Miami Dolphins (6-3)
  26. Seattle Seahawks (6-3)
  27. San Francisco 49ers (6-3)
  28. Jacksonville Jaguars (6-3)
  29. Baltimore Ravens (7-3)
  30. Detroit Lions (7-2)
  31. Kansas City Chiefs (7-2)
  32. Philadelphia Eagles (8-1)

Things could get worse in the next few weeks. Green Bay's next three games are against the Los Angeles Chargers, Detroit Lions (on a short week), and Kansas City Chiefs. That's a brutal run for a struggling team. Green Bay will be underdogs in each and could potentially enter Week 14 with a 3-9 record.

The Packers won't necessarily target a quarterback in the first round, but they will have the opportunity to land a blue-chip prospect. Perhaps they can land their long-term starter at left tackle or a superstar wide receiver.

Green Bay is on track for an early draft pick. The way things are going, the Packers could end up in the top five.
