The 2018 NFL Draft is just over three weeks away and there is still plenty to be done for the Green Bay Packers.

General manager Brian Gutekunst will be looking to add a ton of young talent to the roster, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. There are also still decent bargains on free agents to be had.

Marcus Davenport could be the answer at EDGE at 14, but I disagree with Harold Landry being a reach. Both would bring immediate speed to a position badly needing its
