Round 2 (53): Jonathon Brooks, RB, Texas

Here's where the additional second-round picks can help the Packers. Another potential need in the offseason is running back. AJ Dillon's contract expires at the end of the season, and Aaron Jones could be gone due to his high upcoming cap hits. Green Bay may need to hit the reset button at running back like it recently has at wide receiver and tight end.

Losing Jones and Dillon in the same offseason would be tough. The Packers' decision to keep Emanuel Wilson on the 53-man roster shows their confidence in him long-term, but he would likely step into the RB2 role behind an offseason addition. In the draft, the Packers won't find many better running backs than Jonathon Brooks.

"At over six feet tall and over 200 pounds, Brooks shows impressive wiggle, agility, body control and long speed for a player with his build. He's been one of the most productive backs in the country and is in the conversation to be the first back selected if he declares," writes Trevor Sikkema of Pro Football Focus.

Brooks replaced Bijan Robinson as the starter this season, and he has been dominant, turning 166 carries into 1,035 yards and eight touchdowns, an average of 6.2 yards per attempt.

Change could be on the way for the Packers at running back. Jones is irreplaceable, but a running back duo of Brooks and Wilson would be fun.
