6. Calen Bullock, S, USC

There are few safety prospects in this draft with the kind of range you see out of USC's Calen Bullock. With his burst and speed, he's rarely going to be caught out of position unless he's being overly aggressive.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein has this to say about his game:

"Long and athletic with a series of feast-or-famine plays all over the tape. Bullock can be scary good in coverage and scary bad as a run defender. He has the range to play single-high safety, the athleticism to line up over the slot and the ball skills to chalk up impressive on-ball production."

New defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley is going to need to help coach up a player like this who might need help in the run defense department, but as far as roaming around the back end of the defense, Bullock could be an ideal target for the Packers.

7. Elijah Jones, CB, Boston College

Defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley is also coming from the Boston College program, so unless some team sneaks in front of the Green Bay Packers for Elijah Jones at some point in the 2024 NFL Draft, you can bank on this guy being one of their 11 selections.

And Jones has all of the traits the Packers look for at the position. He's got height, length, speed, explosiveness, and fluid hips. Most importantly, he has a great connection with the defensive coordinator and would be able to get up to speed on the playbook defensively quicker than any other rookie defensive back in this class.
