The Green Bay Packers return from their bye this week. While they rested in Week 6, their position in the 2024 NFL Draft order changed slightly.

Having lost three of their first five games, the Packers would hold a top-10 draft pick if the season ended today. Last year, several seven-win teams picked inside the top 10. The Packers still have a way to go to hit that milestone.

If the Packers lose to the Denver Broncos this week, we may need to start talking about a potential top-five selection. If Green Bay can't win that game after a bye, this team could be in trouble.

Returning from their bye, here is where the Packers stand in the updated draft order.

Packers remain in top 10 of 2024 NFL Draft order after bye week

The Packers have a chance to add victories in the coming weeks, with games against the Broncos, Minnesota Vikings, and Los Angeles Rams up next. But considering how Green Bay played before the bye, nothing is guaranteed.

Entering Week 7, here is where things stand in the 2024 NFL draft order:

  1. Chicago Bears - from Carolina Panthers (0-6)
  2. Chicago Bears (1-5)
  3. Denver Broncos (1-5)
  4. Arizona Cardinals (1-5)
  5. New York Giants (1-5)
  6. New England Patriots (1-5)
  7. Minnesota Vikings (2-4)
  8. Tennessee Titans (2-4)
  9. Green Bay Packers (2-3)
  10. Los Angeles Chargers (2-3)
  11. New Orleans Saints (3-3)
  12. Atlanta Falcons (3-3)
  13. Arizona Cardinals - from Houston Texans (3-3)
  14. Las Vegas Raiders (3-3)
  15. Indianapolis Colts (3-3)
  16. Washington Commanders (3-3)
  17. New York Jets (3-3)
  18. Cincinnati Bengals (3-3)
  19. Los Angeles Rams (3-3)
  20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-2)
  21. Houston Texans - from Cleveland Browns (3-2)
  22. Seattle Seahawks (3-2)
  23. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2)
  24. Buffalo Bills (4-2)
  25. Dallas Cowboys (4-2)
  26. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-2)
  27. Baltimore Ravens (4-2)
  28. Detroit Lions (5-1)
  29. Miami Dolphins (5-1)
  30. San Francisco 49ers (5-1)
  31. Kansas City Chiefs (5-1)
  32. Philadelphia Eagles (5-1)

The Packers could land one of the top prospects at a premium position with the ninth overall pick.

An offensive lineman could be near the top of the list entering the draft, and a top-10 pick would give the Packers an opportunity to select a long-term starter. Names to watch include Notre Dame's Joe Alt and Alabama's JC Latham.
