2021 NFL Draft
A quarterback this talented is almost never available as late as Feleipe Franks is projected to be available.
With the Packers’ preference for elite agility and good size at corner, there are few individuals who fit the team’s ideals perfectly.
A talented class features a plethora of options in some roles, but very few in others. Where does the Tyler Ervin role sit on that spectrum?
Practically every draftable receiver in the 2021 class hits the numbers the Packers look for in the 40 and the 3-cone. Instead, size is the biggest difference among the top wideouts this year.
Rashod Bateman might be one of those end-of-the-first-round targets the Packers could consider at wide receiver.
We have mountains of historical trends to help us put together smart drafting strategies. We evaluate them at key positions of need for the Packers and figure out how to put them into practice with this draft class.
Cornerback early and developmental tackle late? Receiver early and safety on Day 2? How do the Packers attack the draft? We provide some options at need positions from early-round targets to value picks and late-round flyers.
There are a few sons of former NFL players in this year’s cornerback class, and one stands out in particular.
Don’t blame us for this one. We compiled rankings from around the internet to figure out roughly where players are being valued and then used that to project where they might go in April draft. You’ve been warned.
No position is starting to feel off limits for the Packers at No. 29 in the draft.
VT Caleb Farley’s medicals are a concern, but if they check out, he might be CB1 in this year’s class.
Gutey is on site to view another top cornerback prospect’s workout first-hand.
With tenders and contracts mostly set for the Packers heading into free agency, we have a much clearly picture of where this team will be looking in the draft (though we’ll know even more after free agency ends). So let’s have some fun and make some fake picks.
He’s not getting the publicity of some of his offensive tackle class counterparts, but Notre Dame’s Liam Eichernberg is a name to watch as we head toward the draft. He’s a complete tackle who can play right now.
An in-depth look at the draft, the salary cap, and the new coaches.
The Packers landed extra picks in rounds four, five, and six, as expected.
While a new weapon for Aaron Rodgers is a fan-favorite option in Round 1, the Packers have other less-sexy needs that are arguably more important.
With a top cornerback on the field and the event just a short drive away, Green Bay’s top personnel man is checking out a Big Ten school’s workout.
In three of the past four drafts, Green Bay has not been afraid to target multiple players of a particular position with its final picks.
Teven Jenkins stands tall, but relishes putting defenders down, playing with a physical, nasty style that would fit Matt LaFleur’s eye if the Packers are looking for a long-term solution at right tackle.
Wide reciever isn’t the only area of need for the Packers and looking elsewhere could more effectively improve the roster.
If the Packers want an offensive tackle who could help them right away, but also offers the upside to be an even better player down the road, then look no further than the mountainous Christian Darrisaw.
Brian Gutekunst hasn’t used his high picks on the trenches as often as Ted Thompson. Could that change this year with a former teammate of multiple current Packers? We break down tackle prospect Jalen Mayfield.
In a reversal from of 2020, college programs will hold Pro Days this spring with no full Combine taking place.
A quarterback scramble could help push more stud weapons down to the Packers.
