Tuesday Cheese Curds: Which Packers draft picks will pan out?

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: NOV 20 Illinois at Iowa

Now that the Packers have made their selections in the 2023 NFL Draft, one big question remains: who’s actually going to be good?

If we’re honest with ourselves, we know most of these draft picks aren’t going to work out. In the best-case situation, as many as five or six could be good NFL players, with maybe two or three from that group getting second contracts with the Packers.

It also stands to reason that there’s a good chance we’ll guess wrong about who it will be. Sure, betting on the top end of the draft is smart, but someone from the high-end group will probably disappoint while someone from later in the draft emerges.

In any case, at least the speculation is over now. Well, the speculation about who they’ll pick. Now it’s time to speculate about who’s actually going to shake out.
