Round 7 (245): Daequan Hardy, CB, Penn State

The Packers add more depth to the secondary while improving their special teams in the final round. Penn State's Daequan Hardy primarily played at slot corner in college, where he made 17 pass defenses and five interceptions, including a pick-six, in his final three seasons.

Hardy's athleticism and special teams ability would give him a chance to make the roster. He earned an elite Relative Athletic Score of 8.45. Last season, he returned 17 punts for 248 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 14.6 yards per return.

Round 7 (255): KT Leveston, OL, Kansas State

Drafting four offensive linemen may seem like a lot, but the Packers need the depth. They released David Bakhtiari and lost Yosh Nijman and Jon Runyan Jr. in free agency. They could also move on from backup guard Royce Newman this summer. Brian Gutekunst often addresses positions of need by doubling or tripling down, hoping that one or two additions become key contributors.

Kansas State's KT Leveston earned a good Relative Athletic Score of 6.54. He played left tackle in college but will likely move to guard in the NFL. With his athleticism and positional versatility, Leveston would add much-needed depth along the offensive line and compete for a spot on the 53-man roster.
