10. Carrington Valentine, CB

Cornerback Carrington Valentine also has a great chance of making the roster. He has good speed and should provide solid cornerback depth immediately. In his final season at Kentucky, Valentine made 10 pass defenses and one interception.

The Packers have their starting three sorted at cornerback, but they needed to improve their depth in the draft, which they achieved by selecting Valentine. Also working in his favor is his ability to play regular snaps on special teams. Green Bay has placed a greater emphasis on special teams since hiring Rich Bisaccia, and that could be Valentine's path to a roster spot.

9. Lew Nichols III, RB

The Packers added quality running back depth in the seventh round by selecting Central Michigan's Lew Nichols III.

Nichols is a powerful running back. In 2021, he absolutely dominated at Central Michigan, rushing for 1,848 yards and 16 touchdowns. But don't underestimate his ability as a pass-catcher, either. Over the past three seasons, Nichols has contributed with 71 catches for 575 yards and three touchdowns.

Being able to play special teams might be important in the RB3 training camp battle. Nichols will face competition from Patrick Taylor. But there's no doubting Nichols' ability, and he could land the top backup job behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon.
