Round 3 (91): Jaden Hicks, S, Washington State

The Packers land an athletic safety with their final top-100 selection of this 2024 mock draft, and while there are some questions about Hicks's current ability to just jump into an NFL defense and contribute, he showed over the last couple of years that he can make plays.

He racked up 155 total tackles, 8.0 tackles for loss, and three interceptions the last two years at Washington State. With that kind of production to go along with a 6-foot-3 frame, the Packers might see this kind of young safety as the ideal match to pair with Xavier McKinney.

Round 4 (126): Jaylan Ford, LB, Texas

If you want to talk about production at the linebacker position, it doesn't get much better than Texas's Jaylan Ford. He had 220 total tackles over the last two seasons, 20.5 tackles for loss, six interceptions, and four forced fumbles.

With the consistent production he had for three straight years at Texas and with how effective he was both against the run and playing in coverage, he could be the ideal mid-round dart for the Packers to throw at the off-ball linebacker position.

Round 5 (168): Gabe Hall, DL, Baylor

You can never have too many great athletes on the defensive line, can you? The Packers have been so good at finding players for their defensive front at every turn of the NFL Draft in recent years, and Gabe Hall feels like he would be another great late-round addition. He's 6-foot-6, 291 pounds, and has 34.5-inch arms.

There's some positional versatility with Hall as well, and while the production wasn't always there at Baylor, we know the Packers are also not afraid to take chances on traits over anything else. Especially in the later rounds.
