4. Harold Landry, OLB, Boston College (Previous: 5)

Harold Landry is another player becoming a Packers’ fan favorite for the first round on Thursday.

His ceiling isn’t nearly as high as Edmunds, but his floor isn’t nearly as low. Landry was a beast for Boston College in 2016, posting 16.5 sacks. Unfortunately, he followed it up with a dud 2017 and only recorded five sacks.

Landry is far from a finished product and may be a pass-rushing specialist his first year or two in the NFL. And that would be perfectly fine for the Packers.

He could fit into a rotation alongside Nick Perry, Clay Matthews and others in order to keep everyone fresh. Also, due to the regular injuries suffered by the other two outside linebackers, regular playing time is sure to open up from time to time.

Landry is another player on this list who has a very real opportunity to become the Packers first round selection if everything holds.
