Green Bay Packers Mock Draft No. 2

Pick 22: Trevor Penning, OT, UNI

The need at offensive tackle for the Green Bay Packers seems to vary depending on who you talk with. On one hand, once healthy, Green Bay has David Bakhtiari, Elgton Jenkins, and Yosh Nijman. But we don’t know when Jenkins will actually be back, or how Nijman will perform at right tackle, leaving the depth at this position as a bit of a question mark. So with that in mind, I couldn’t pass up selecting Trevor Penning–who is considered one of the top tackles in this class. He would come in immediately and compete with Nijman for the starting right tackle job, and if he won it and held his own, it would give the Packers the option to keep Jenkins at guard.

Pick 28: Daxton Hill, S, Michigan

Safety is an under-the-radar need for the Packers. They need to find a reliable third option for this season, which a year ago was Henry Black, who played nearly 300 snaps–however, he is no longer on the team. It’s also important to note that Vernon Scott is the only safety under contract in 2023 currently. Hill is extremely versatile, and like Pitre, he has a good amount of slot experience.

Pick 53: Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State

I imagine if the Green Bay Packers actually go through the first round without a receiver selection, many will be quite upset. But without being able to pick Burks and the board not falling right for it, I didn’t want to force anything. However, I have to say it certainly worked out alright. Pretty much everything about Watson screams Green Bay Packer. He has good size; he tested incredibly well at the combine, he would provide them with a downfield threat, could be used on some gadget plays, is a willing blocker, and may even be an option as a return man.

Pick 59: Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati

Alec Pierce was the go-to downfield target in the Cincinnati offense and was effective in that role. However, that isn’t all he can do either. While, along with Watson, he would provide big-play ability, Pierce has a well-rounded game, with 28 of his 74 targets this past season coming within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. He, too, is also a very willing run-blocker.
