4. Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia
Roquan Smith would be a huge get for the Packers no matter how unlikely. He’s been really good for Georgia the past two seasons and only appears to be getting better. With the sky being the limit for this young man, some team is going to snatch him up early.
Although he’s a little on the smaller end at 6-foot-1 and 236 pounds, he would bring a much-needed element of speed to the Packers linebacking corps considering he ran a 4.51 40-yard dash.
McShay ranks him as his fifth-best prospect and an overall grade of 94. Kiper Jr. projects him to go at No. 9 to the San Franciso 49ers. And NFL.com has given him a prospect grade of 6.74 which means he has a chance to become a Pro Bowl caliber player.
Pro Football Focus also has him ranked as their number one overall linebacker with a grade of 90.8.
He’s another player who would form a great rotation at the outside linebacker position with Matthews Jr. and Perry. His game is much different than Landry’s, but he’s probably more ready to fill all the responsibilities of the position.
