Green Bay Packers Seven Round Mock Draft

Round 1. Pick 29

Adoree’ Jackson- CB – USC

Ted Thompson loves versatile, hybrid type players. Jackson can fill a variety of different roles in the backfield and help replace the multiple skills that they lost when Micah Hyde signed elsewhere . He can also provide a definite boost in the punt/kick return game.

Round 2. Pick 29

T.J. Watt – OLB – Wisconsin 

If Watt is still sitting here at this point, I don’t see anyway the Packers pass him up. He’s basically a Clay Matthews clone and would give the Packers two high motor rushers who can attack from either side of the field. Offenses would be forced to decide which one they wanted to block and would most likely end up having to leave an extra blocker back to protect the quarterback.

Round 3. Pick 29

Samaje  Perine – RB – Oklahoma 

It seems the Packers front office is convinced that Ty Montgomery can be an every down back in their offense. I’m sure they don’t want to go into the season without a backup plan. Perine could give them an extra dimension and eventually develop into the starter to allow Montgomery to move back to the slot.

Round 4. Pick 28

Desmond King – CB – Iowa

Early this offseason, King was one of the top ranked corners in this draft but his stock has dropped considerably amid questions of his speed in keeping up with deep threat receivers. King may have silenced doubters temporarily with his 4.5 40 yard but either way he is expected to fall. The Packers could use him as a nickel corner and for depth at a position that suffered quite a few injuries in 2016.

Round 5. Pick 29

Brad Seaton – Offensive Tackle – Villanova 

At 6-foot-8, 326 pounds this kid is massive and is just the type of prospect of the Packers front office targets. A guy who other teams may overlook because of injuries or other issues. He’s someone they could also move inside if need be.

Round 5. Pick 39

Dede Westbrook – WR- Oklahoma 

At one point, this former Heisman candidate was being talked of as a late second rounder. Size concerns and character issues have knocked him back a bit. I think he would fit well in the Packers offense in the slot or outside for those quick passes Aaron Rodgers loves to throw.

Round 6. Pick 29

Cole Hikutini – TE – Louisville 

This kid isn’t going to offer much as a blocker but at 6-foot-4, 247 pounds he will offer much in the way of mismatches for defenses. The Packers are deep at tight end but it may be worth the risk to be able to draft and develop a guy who caught 49 passes, for 656 yards and 8 TDs.

Round 7. Pick 29

Demetrius Cox – MSU

Cox has had some off the field issues but as long as he can keep all that together, he could be a major contributor at a position the Packers have a serious need. His size and athleticism would be very welcome in Green Bay’s backfield.
