6. Tyler Owens, S, Texas Tech

At 6-foot-2, 205 pounds, Owens is expected to test off the charts at the Scouting Combine. He's been clocked at 23 mph in an actual game setting, according to Pro Football Focus, and combines his outstanding athleticism with intriguing versatility:

"After three years at Texas, the fifth-year senior played his past two at Texas Tech. He was a versatile chess piece for the Red Raiders, logging at least 150 snaps each in the box, at free safety and at slot cornerback. His five forced incompletions in 2023 tied for seventh among Big 12 safeties," writes Max Chadwick of PFF.

Those numbers are nothing to scoff at, and with 11 picks, the Packers could potentially get Owens sometime on Day 3 at a bargain price.

7. Bub Means, WR, Pittsburgh

There's no way the Packers are staying away from receivers in this particular draft class, even with the emergence of so many young players in recent years like Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, Jayden Reed, and Dontayvion Wicks.

Brian Gutekunst has a type at the position, and he's not going to let a draft pass by without taking a crack at at least one.

Bub Means is a 6-foot-2, 215-pound receiver who averaged 17.2 yards per reception over the course of his collegiate career. With that kind of frame, Means can apparently run in the 4.3s in the 40-yard dash. That kind of size/speed combo will endear him to the Packers' brain trust and warrant a late-round selection.
