Round 2 (43): Will McDonald IV, EDGE, Iowa State

The Packers add another player at a premium position with the second-round pick received from the New York Jets.

Will McDonald IV had a pre-draft visit with Green Bay, a possible sign of the team's interest in the talented Iowa State pass rusher.

He was productive at Iowa State, making 27 sacks and 33.5 tackles for loss in his final three seasons.

"McDonald's hard-nosed demeanor and pass-rush talent are winning play traits that will help him become a successful 3-4 outside linebacker and sack artist,"'s Lance Zierlein wrote.

Like with the Johnson pick, the Packers take a long-term approach here. While McDonald would be a valuable contributor as a rookie, he could become an important starter next to Rashan Gary by year two or three.

Round 2 (45): Cedric Tillman, WR, Tennessee

It's time to get Jordan Love some receiving help. Tennessee's Cedric Tillman may be the most underrated receiver in the entire class.

He can become a special player in the NFL.

Tillman is the perfect Packers wide receiver. He is 6-foot-3, 213 pounds, has great athleticism, and was productive in college. He is also a polished route-runner, is a physical receiver, and can run block. He has just about everything the Packers love in wide receivers.

A couple of his most impressive performances came in 2021. He had seven catches for 152 yards and a touchdown against Alabama, and 10 receptions for 200 yards and a score against Georgia.

Tillman could be a star in Green Bay's offense.
