On day two of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers got both prospects that they had targeted when on the clock with the 62nd overall pick in round two. The team chose Ohio State center Josh Myers with that selection, but then traded up to grab their other preferred player, wide receiver Amari Rodgers, in round three.

With those two players added to first-round pick Eric Stokes, the Packers solidified three major gaps in their roster with their three top-100 selections. Now the team moves ahead into day three, where they will try to shore up depth and find some hidden gems rather than immediate contributors.

The Packers traded away their first pick of the third day, the 135th overall selection, to move up for Rodgers. But the team still has another fourth-round pick at 142 and five more selections: two in round five, two in round six, and one in round seven. Here are the exact pick numbers they hold heading into day three:

  • 4th round (#142 overall)
  • 5th round (#173)
  • 5th round (#178)
  • 6th round (#214)
  • 6th round (#220)
  • 7th round (#256)
