Round 2 (41): Edgerrin Cooper, LB, Texas A&M

The Packers desperately need to find another starting linebacker to play alongside Quay Walker. It's a thin rookie class at the position, but Edgerrin Cooper could be an instant contributor in Green Bay.

"A premium athlete that can also play on the edge. In a league with so many mobile QBs, his athleticism and range is invaluable," writes ESPN's Field Yates.

Cooper earned an elite Relative Athletic Score of 9.26. He can defend the run, having made 17 tackles for loss last season, but could also be an effective blitzer in Jeff Hafley's defense. Cooper had eight sacks in 2023.

Round 2 (58): Kingsley Suamataia, T, BYU

There are several reasons why the Packers could love Kingsley Suamataia. He split time at left and right tackle at BYU, but Green Bay may view him as a guard. His ability to play across the line would make him a valuable addition to the Packers' roster, and with time, he can become an excellent starter.

The Packers love to draft players who earn elite Relative Athletic Scores—Suamataia checks that box, too, with a score of 9.38 out of 10. He may need time to develop before winning a starting role, but he could immediately compete for the swing tackle job with the potential to play either tackle or guard in Green Bay.
