Round 3 (88): Jaylen Wright, RB, Tennessee

The Packers upgraded the running back room by signing Josh Jacobs. They also brought back AJ Dillon, but his contract leaves no guarantee he will make the 53-man roster. Tennessee's Jaylen Wright would be the perfect complement to Jacobs in the Packers' offense.

He has game-changing speed, running a 4.38-second 40-yard dash to help earn a 9.8 Relative Athletic Score. This speed shows up when watching Wright play—he uses it to turn small gains into home runs. He has drawn comparisons to Aaron Jones and could play a similar role in Matt LaFleur's offense.

Round 3 (91): Cole Bishop, S, Utah

Even after signing Xavier McKinney in free agency, the Packers still need to upgrade the safety position. With early-round candidates Tyler Nubin and Kamren Kinchens likely off their board, Utah's Cole Bishop is a prospect to watch on Day 2.

Bishop offers versatility and athleticism, two things the Packers covet. At Utah, he played deep, in the box, in the slot, and even cornerback. He increased his draft stock at the NFL Combine, earning a Relative Athletic Score of 9.87, the best among safeties. Bishop's run-defending ability would make him a great fit as a box safety in the Packers' defense, although his versatility would allow Jeff Hafley to move him around.
