APC Mock Draft: Packers get Troy Niklas, Jared Abbrederis in Round 3

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

We project the Packers to add size at tight end and good value at wide receiver in the third round of the NFL Draft.

After projecting the first two rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft over the past several weeks, we decided we didn't have quite enough and wanted to see who we would get for the Green Bay Packers with their pair of third-round picks. Therefore, Josh VanDyke and I sat down to run round 3 as a two-man draft (after we realized that our six-man draft wouldn't get finished in time) and we think we found the Packers some great values in a pair of offensive weapons to add to Aaron Rodgers' arsenal.

Take a look at our projection for round three and let us know where you would have differed.

That's all she wrote. We're done after three rounds, and we have added a pair of prospects each to the offense and defense. I'm sure you'll remember those other two prospects and the fact that there is not a safety among them - we'll address that point in a recap of our Packers picks later today.
