The Green Bay Packers ended the first day of the 2017 NFL Draft on the clock, after trading back from the 29th pick to 33, the first pick in the second round. This has given Ted Thompson all day today to get ready for the second and third rounds, in which he has three picks combined.
We scoured the internet this morning for mock drafts from overnight, breaking down some projections of what the Packers might do in round two (and in some cases, round three as well). Here are six mocks projecting at a minimum the Packers’ picks at 33 and 61.
Dan Kadar, SB Nation: (33) Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Colorado, (61) Tyus Bowser, OLB, Houston
Lance Zierlein, NFL.com: (33) Tyus Bowser, OLB, Houston; (61) Dan Feeney, G, Indiana
Mark Eckel, NJ.com: (33) Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State; (61) Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA
Steve Muensch, ESPN: (33) Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State; (61) Ryan Anderson, OLB, Alabama
Ben Natan, Bleeding Green Nation: (33) Jordan Willis, OLB, Kansas State; (61) Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida; (93) Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State
Ryan Talbot, NYUpstate: (33) Forrest Lamp, G, Western Kentucky; (61) Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma
Personally, I am in love with Kadar’s and Natan’s mocks. Both get high-level prospects to both rush the passer and cover receivers. Natan’s addition of a third round - and projection of one of my biggest draft crushes, Chris Godwin, would make for a phenomenal add to the Packers’ offense.
Which of these would be your ideal haul in round two?
