Defensive line

Kenny Clark, Devonte Wyatt, T.J. Slaton, Keeanu Benton, Brodric Martin

The Packers need to improve their defensive line after losing Jarran Reed and Dean Lowry in free agency. Here, they add two quality defensive linemen.

Wisconsin's Keeanu Benton should be a Day 2 option for the Packers. He made 4.5 sacks and 10 tackles for loss last season, and he would add some interior pass rush to the defense.

Edge rushers

Rashan Gary, Preston Smith, Kingsley Enagbare, Justin Hollins, Viliami Fehoko Jr.

A downside of this mock draft is not landing one of the top pass rushers in the class. The good news? They add some good depth with San Joe State's Viliami Fehoko, who made nine sacks and forced two fumbles last season.

"Fehoko is a complete and versatile player with exciting potential at the NFL level," wrote Ian Cummings of Pro Football Network.

Inside linebackers

De'Vondre Campbell, Quay Walker, Isaiah McDuffie, Eric Wilson

Green Bay doesn't need to make any changes at inside linebacker. Former first-team All-Pro De'Vondre Campbell and 2022 first-rounder Quay Walker give the defense a quality starting duo, while third-year Isaiah McDuffie provides depth.

Eric Wilson was arguably the Packers' best special teams player last season, earning his spot on the 53-man roster.
