Packers 7-round mock draft: Building an unstoppable offense around Jordan Love
Draft week is here, and it's a massive seven days for the Green Bay Packers.
After a disappointing season, followed by a quiet free agency, the Packers have a tremendous opportunity to add talent on both sides of the ball, building a strong roster around new starting quarterback Jordan Love.
That includes surrounding him with talent on offense. The Packers lack depth at wide receiver and need a new starter at tight end. They have an opportunity to fix both needs during this week's draft.
To celebrate draft week, it's time for a Packers seven-round mock. And we start with a trade.

Round 1: Packers land star tight end after trade
Round 1 (24): Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah
The Packers need a tight end, but taking one at No. 15 is a little early. Instead, GM Brian Gutekunst could move down the order to find better value. In this scenario, the Packers move down nine spots in the first round, netting a second-rounder as compensation.
And Gutekunst plays it perfectly. With the 24th overall pick, the Packers select Utah's Dalton Kincaid, the most exciting tight end prospect in the class.
While he still needs to work on his blocking, you draft Kincaid for his game-changing receiving ability.
NFL Network's Bucky Brooks ranks him first among his top five tight ends, writing that "Kincaid is a dynamic flex with outstanding route-running skills and sticky hands."
The Packers need to add more receiving talent to help their young quarterback. Kincaid can be a game-changer in the middle of the field, an explosive pass-catcher Love could lean on regularly.
