Round 4 (116): Jaquelin Roy, DL, LSU

The Packers need to improve their defensive line, and it won't be surprising if they use an early pick here, especially after losing depth in free agency. However, they can still find talent in the middle rounds.

Enter LSU's Jaquelin Roy. The Packers brought Roy in for a Top 30 pre-draft visit, and for good reason.

Roy should be taken in the opening two rounds, but many mock drafts have him falling to Day 3. If he is there for the Packers in the fourth round, Brian Gutekunst shouldn't need long to make his decision.

ESPN's Louis Riddick named Roy one of his favorite sleepers in the 2023 draft class.

"Even though he was not a regular starter for LSU, this guy has all of the tools to be a dominant NFL defensive tackle," wrote Riddick.

The Packers have two-time Pro Bowler Kenny Clark and 2022 first-round pick Devonte Wyatt to build around up front on defense, but they desperately need to find another quality defensive tackle. Roy could make an immediate impact for Green Bay's defense.

With a starting trio of Clark, Wyatt, and Roy, the Packers would have three defensive tackles capable of providing interior pass rush.

Roy would have a good chance of winning a starting job in his first season.
