There are plenty of Green Bay Packers mock drafts out there, and you don't have to look far for 53-man roster predictions. But not together.

Predicting the 53-man roster this early isn't easy, as so many new players will be added in the draft. But in this article, we'll look at one way the roster could look after making their picks.

The Packers have needs at tight end, edge rusher, defensive tackle, and wide receiver. Here's how the 53-man roster could look after addressing those positions in the draft.


Jordan Love, Hendon Hooker

With Aaron Rodgers soon to be traded to the New York Jets, the Packers need to find another quarterback. Just as they did in Rodgers' first year as a starter, that means drafting a QB in the second round.

Believe it or not, Tennessee's Hendon Hooker is actually older than Jordan Love, who has spent three seasons in the NFL. But it doesn't matter, the Packers get a young quarterback to develop behind their new starter.

No changes here. The Packers retain their top four from a year ago, and what a deep group this is. Green Bay will need to lean on its ground game to help Jordan Love this season.
