Mock draft season is and has been in full swing for some time now, and with the NFL Draft still a few weeks away, we oftentimes see the same several players going to the Green Bay Packers.

So in an effort to switch things up, and also, this exercise was quite fun, I ran three different two-round mock drafts for the Packers, utilizing PFF’s mock draft simulator. The caveat, however, is that I could not select the same player twice, which forced me to explore other options.

Here is how each of those drafts turned out for the Green Bay Packers. Be sure to let me know which one was your favorite.

Green Bay Packers Mock Draft No. 1

Pick 22: Devonte Wyatt, IDL, Georgia

At the NFL level, Wyatt will likely primarily line up as the 3-technique, but he moved up and down the defensive front at Georgia. He should be a three-down player, able to affect both the running and passing games. Having this added element in the defensive line rotation will also give the Green Bay Packers more freedom to move Kenny Clark around in search of one-on-one opportunities.

Pick 28: Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

We know the Green Bay Packers need receiver help, but one specific need is someone who can make plays with the ball in their hands–and Treylon Burks is that player. He would be a very good fit for Matt LaFleur’s offense with his ability to line up just about anywhere and the goal being to get the ball in his hands quickly and in space. Burks finished the 2021 season ranked 10th in average YAC per catch and sixth in total YAC per PFF ($$).

Pick 53: Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor

Pitre is listed as a safety, but he spent nearly 1,200 career snaps in the slot. As I wrote recently, I think there is quite a bit of value in the Green Bay Packers adding another slot option to this roster. Yes, we will see Jaire Alexander there, but as Brian Gutekunst said, he is going to move around with the opponent’s best receiver. After Alexander, the Packers don’t have a slot cornerback option with a ton of experience. Adding this element would give Joe Barry an immense amount of flexibility.

Pick 59: Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama

Just like Burks provides the Packers with a needed YAC element, Jalen Tolbert gives them that vertical threat–something this offense needs and is currently missing. In addition to the big-play potential, having the downfield threat creates better spacing and opens up the passing game for others. According to PFF ($$), Tolbert had 41 receptions of 20+ yards during the past two seasons and the fifth most deep ball receiving yards (passes of 20+ yards) in 2021.
