Round 2 (64): Cole Bishop, S, Utah

Packers-Chiefs trade

The Packers need to draft a safety to play alongside Xavier McKinney, but the options are limited. Even some of the best prospects in the class are likely off Green Bay's board. When looking for safeties who meet the Packers' strict athletic and size thresholds and have the tape to make them an early-round pick, Utah's Cole Bishop is the standout name.

Still available at the bottom of the second round, enough was enough. It was time for the Packers to make a bold trade to get him. They send both of their third-rounders to the Kansas City Chiefs to move to No. 64, a price worth paying for a safety who can become an excellent starter in Jeff Hafley's defense.

Bishop earned the best Relative Athletic Score of any safety this offseason with a near-perfect 9.88 out of 10.

The Packers will love his versatility. Bishop did everything in the Utah defense, splitting time between deep and box safety while also playing outside and slot corner. A pairing of Bishop and McKinney would give new defensive coordinator Hafley two players capable of lining up in the post safety role or in the box. Hafley could unlock Bishop's potential in the Packers' defense.
