For this mock draft, I used mock draft database.
You can also check out my previous mocks here.
In this mock I focused on guys that provide versatility. That is something the Packers covet. I made two trades. I traded back from 29 to 39 and also traded up from 62 to 56.
Round: 2, Pick 39: Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State
So while Radunz only played tackle at North Dakota, at the senior bowl he took snaps at guard and at center. Radunz looked good at guard as well. He’s definitely a quality prospect at tackle, but he looks like he can play guard if needed. He could win the starting right tackle spot as a rookie while Bahktiari is out, or he could start at one of the guard spots with Jenkins sliding out to tackle. He has a lot of upside and athleticism. RAS score: 9.28
Round: 2 Pick 56: Jevon Holland, CB/S, Oregon
Holland has been linked to the Packers. He has experience playing in the box, single high, split zone, slot, outside, etc.. Holland can play anywhere and has amazing ball skills. He would have a strong chance to beat out Sullivan for the slot CB spot. The Packers could play him all over. RAS score: 9.47(S)/9.51(CB)
Round: 3, Pick 73: Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Memphis
Another versatile player. Gainwell has experience playing slot receiver as well as being a good running back. He would give LaFleur another weapon to work with and move around. RAS: 5.69
Round: 3, Pick 92: Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State
Similar to Radunz, in that he only played one spot in college, but he has potential and the skill set to play outside and the slot. Surprisingly he didn’t test all that well at their pro day. He plays better than he tested. He would be another weapon for LaFleur. RAS: 5.21
Round: 4, Pick 135, Kendrick Green, IOL, Illinois
Green has interior versitility. He has played guard and center. Green is also a great fit for the zone scheme that the Packers use. He would provide depth on the interior with starter potential. He could even end up starting some games as a rookie with Bahktiari’s injury if they decided to kick Jenkins out to tackle. Green could even end up taking over at center down the line.
RAS Score: 9.24
Round: 4, Pick 142: Ambry Thomas, CB, Michigan
Thomas is another versatile guy with lots of athletic upside. He has experience outside and in the slot. He also has a lot of special teams experience as a gunner and returner. Has the upside to develop into a starter in a year or two.
RAS score: 8.97
Round: 5, Pick 173: Chauncey Golston, EDGE, Iowa
Golston has the size and athleticism to play on the edge and even as a defensive end in sub packages. Similar to Gary and Z. He could start out as the #4 edge.
RAS score: 7.56
Round: 5, Pick 178: JaCoby Stevens, S, LSU
Stevens is a strong safety who can also play the nickel linebacker role or Raven Greene role. He brings more size and durability at 6’1 212. He is also a better all around athlete. He could also come down and cover some tight ends.
RAS score: 9.91
Round: 6, Pick 214: Michal Menet, IOL, Penn State
Another developmental center, could learn guard as well. He has the size to do it. Menet would give Green Bay another versatile piece. He probably even fits Green Bay’s zone scheme better than 2nd year player Jake Hanson does.
Round: 6, Pick 220: Naquan Jones, DL, Michigan State
I tried to get a defensive lineman early. The value just wasn’t there. He is a decent run stuffer and could develop some pass rush moves. He has played up and down the line in his career.
Thanks for reading!
