Pick acquired from New York Jets
Packers GM Brian Gutekunst often doubles down at positions of need. He drafted two tight ends and two defensive linemen this year. Both were areas of need.
Green Bay's interior offensive line has been a mess this season, outside of Elgton Jenkins. The Packers had to rely on Royce Newman to start in the two games Jenkins missed, which went as badly as everyone expected. To make things more complicated, Jon Runyan Jr. is a free agent in the spring.
Don't be surprised if the Packers double up on offensive linemen early in the draft. Cooper Beebe is having a fantastic season for Kansas State. He can play at guard and tackle -- the Packers love positional versatility -- and could start immediately.
Beebe made Pro Football Focus' midseason All-Prospect Team.
"He has been the king of consistently good play at that position," writes PFF's Trevor Sikkema.
Drafting Jordan Morgan allows the Packers to move Zach Tom to center, and Beebe can start immediately at guard. Beebe has experience playing at left guard and left tackle, but the Packers could give him a shot at right guard as Runyan's replacement.
A starting five of Morgan, Elgton Jenkins, Tom, Beebe, and Rasheed Walker looks much better.
