Round 6 (202): Curtis Jacobs, LB, Penn State

The Packers double down at linebacker, a position they desperately require depth. Penn State's Curtis Jacobs is another outstanding athlete, earning a 9.21 Relative Athletic Score. In his final three seasons in college, Jacobs made 162 tackles, 23.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, and two interceptions.

Jacobs may need time to develop before earning a significant role in Jeff Hafley's defense, but he would improve the linebacker depth while providing value on special teams.

Round 6 (219): Donovan Jennings, OL, USF

Given Green Bay's lack of offensive line depth, it won't be surprising if Brian Gutekunst triples down in the draft. USF offensive lineman Donovan Jennings offers versatility, having played at tackle before transitioning to guard. The Packers have met with Jennings this offseason.

"My meeting with the Green Bay Packers went very well," Jennings told The Draft Network's Justin Melo.

While he likely wouldn't immediately compete for a starting job, Jennings would provide backup with time to develop. The Packers have had great success finding talented offensive linemen on Day 3 of the draft, including current starters Zach Tom and Rasheed Walker and former starting guard Jon Runyan Jr. Jennings' versatility would give him a good chance of making the 53-man roster in his rookie season.
