Round 4, Picks No’s 101 and 133: Jamarco Jones, OT, Ohio State and Dalton Schultz, TE, Standford
As we get deeper into the draft the lack of immediate game-changers drops dramatically (obviously). But this is a good time for the Packers to address some of their other needs or positions where they have depth concerns at.
With the first pick in the fourth round (acquired from the Cleveland Browns) Brian Gutekunst addresses the need along the offensive line. Jamarco Jones is projected to go in the 3rd-4th rounds and would be a nice pickup for the Packers here.
He also gives them insurance at the tackle positions which is incredibly important given the uncertain health of Bryan Bulaga. Jones can challenge Jason Spriggs for playing time or a backup spot which can be very valuable.
Toward the end of the round, the Packers address their depth concern at tight end by selecting Dalton Schultz out of Stanford. Dropping this far would be a worst-case scenario for Schultz, but the Packers capitalize on his slide.
Schultz could be a great compliment to the more explosive Jimmy Graham, as he’s a great run-blocker and thrives on underneath routes. Given Graham’s propensity to stretch the defense and make highlight-reel plays, these two could share the field together.
And just like that, another round and another need met for Green Bay. A+ drafting Gutekunst!
