7 Round Packers Mock Draft

Draft week is finally upon us and we will finally find out who the Packers will take. I am joined by a special guest this week, Eli Berkovits who is a writer for Pack to the Future. On this 7 round mock draft, we took turns with the selections and I kindly gave Eli the first pick. You can follow Eli on Twitter @BerkovitsElliot

Devin Bush, LB, Michigan

The Packers have lacked a true difference maker in the middle of the field for a very long time, that changes now. Bush is an elite athlete who can go sideline to sideline, cover backs and rush the QB. The Packers should pounce if he’s available at 12. -ELI

Noah Fant, TE, Iowa

Fant can stretch the field, run a variety of routes and make tough catches outside his frame, all while being a fully capable in-line or flex blocker. Fant’s route-running will definitely need to improve at the next level, and I’d love to see more creativity and elusiveness after the catch, but traits like his do not come along in the draft to often, and Rodgers would love to have him for years to come. -Bryce

Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida

CGJ is in my top 3 safeties for this draft and if he’s there at the 30 the Packers would be foolish to pass him up. He’s got incredible range and has strongly improved as a tackler over the past 2 years. He’d be the perfect fit next to newcomer Adrian Amos. -ELI

Kaleb McGary, OT, Washington

Really like his demeanor and tenacity to create movement in the run game. Functional power at the point of attack is especially impressive given inconsistent technique and leverage. Must develop in terms of pad level, hand fits and foot work to win at the next level. Needs some NFL coaching to work on his technique, but he’s a solid prospect. Could compete for a spot at the guard position, and if he catches on quickly he might even take over for Bulaga next year. -Bryce

Khalen Saunders, IDL, Western Illinois

Saunders one big knock is the level of competition he faced coming from a smaller program. I’m not overly concerned. If you watch his tape you’ll see just how dominant he was, finishing the 2017 season with a team leading 7.5 sacks. His technique needs a little work but his strength and speed are elite. -ELI

Mecole Hardman, WR, Georgia

Hardman is one of the most electric weapons in the NFL Draft class. He uses his speed and fluidity to stretch the field from the slot, showing promise on deep balls. Additionally, his ability in space can be utilized in the RPO game. Hardman’s field vision and elusiveness allow him to be one of the best kick and punt return prospects in the NFL Draft, just what the Packers could use. One of my favorite players in this years draft. -Bryce

Trayveon Williams, RB, Texas A&M

The Packers found a star running back in Aaron Jones and I think they find their pass catching RB in Trayveon Williams. He has experience catching passes from the backfield as well as the slot and I could see new HC Matt Lafleur using him to create mismatches all over the field. -ELI

Foster Moreau, TE, LSU

Moreau presents value for the Packers, who require/prefer additional blockers at the line of scrimmage beyond their starting line. Moreau has an effective feel for pass protection and presents additional upside as a run blocker if he’s able to establish more consistency with his hands at first contact. Better hands in the receiving game than given credit for. I have him projected as a TE2 behind Noah Fant, when Jimmy Graham, and Mercedes Lewis are eventually off of the team. -Bryce

Gary Jennings Jr, WR, West Virginia

Jennings was used a lot as a deep threat at West Virginia, posting an impressive 17 yards per catch. I think he utilizes those skills in the NFL as a deep shot specialist. The Packers have yet to replace Jordy Nelson’s 70 yards bombs, Jennings could be the guy. -ELI

Isaiah Prince, OT, Ohio State

A three-year starter for Ohio State, Prince has some intriguing tools to work from. His length, functional strength and ability to get depth in his kick slide are likable traits. He needs to cleanup some body control issues that stem from issues with posture and wild feet while also operate with better leverage. Prince has developmental appeal and has improved throughout his career for the Buckeyes, but needs some work with his technique at the next level. -Bryce

  1. Couldn’t be mad if this was the haul, not one bit. I’d argue to draft more LB or Edge depth maybe even a QB instead of a 2nd WR, but anyone that late would be developmental and no guarantee to make the team.

    Nice selections.

  2. Wow! If we pulled out this draft, it would be a grand slam. Let’s hope the chips fall our way.
