Round 3 (78): Isaiah McGuire, EDGE, Missouri

Another position the Packers could draft early but don't necessarily need to is edge rusher.

Green Bay needs to find a quality edge rusher to provide depth behind starters Rashan Gary and Preston Smith in the short term, while also having the potential to replace Smith in the starting lineup a season or two from now.

Enter Missouri's Isaiah McGuire. With his power, he would be a perfect replacement for Smith.

"If you're looking for a prospect who checks the boxes from top to bottom, McGuire is one of those players. He's big, explosive, strong, powerful, and has bend," wrote Ian Cummings of Pro Football Network.

Round 4 (116): A.T. Perry, WR, Wake Forest

The beauty of this year's draft is that, unless the Packers can land Ohio State's Jaxon Smith-Njigba in the first round, they can afford to wait on wide receiver. A.T. Perry in the fourth round would be tremendous value, and the Packers would be adding a pass-catcher who is a perfect complement for Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs.

Perry is 6-foot-3, 198 pounds, with great athleticism. He can be the reliable possession wide receiver the Packers need.

With the addition of Sam LaPorta and A.T. Perry, Green Bay's passing offense can reach another level.
