The pressure is on in Green Bay. After blowing the 2020 draft, the Packers failed to maximize the final years of Aaron Rodgers. Once again, the Packers will have their chance to do just with during the 2021 NFL Draft. Let’s head inside the war room to project what they may do when they’re on the clock.

  • First round, 29th overall 
  • Second round, 62nd overall 
  • Third round, 92nd overall 
  • Fourth round, 135th overall
  • Fourth round, 142nd overall
  • Fifth round, 173rd overall 
  • Fifth round, 178th overall
  • Sixth round, 214th overall
  • Sixth round, 220th overall
  • Seventh round, 256th overall

Green Bay has some extra draft ammo to work with having extra picks in the 4th, 5th, and 6th rounds. Overall it’s a strong roster but there are still obvious holes that need to be addressed.

Could the Packers pull the trigger on a center in the first round to replace Corey Linsley who signed with the Chargers this offseason? Elgton Jenkins is fantastic and likely slots in at center the way things stand now. However, if Green Bay were to find that center and move Jenkins back to guard, that would be ideal.

Landon Dickerson at Alabama could be the pick in the first round. Sure, the ACL injury is a concern but Green Bay could view it the other way around. Maybe he’s not on the board at 29 without the injury. I’d find it hard to believe Green Bay doesn’t try to replace Linsley in the draft.

The Packers need to find another receiver opposite of Davante Adams. Tylan Wallace at Oklahoma State could be someone they target. Wallace on the smaller end and would represent someone the polar opposite of Allen Lazard. I don’t know if Wallace is even on their radar. At some point it’s time to get Rodgers another real target.

In the third round, UCLA defensive lineman Osa Odighizuwa could be an option. Outside of Kenny Clark, this defensive line really needs reinforcements. Clark was a UCLA product that worked out well so maybe they go down that route again. Odighizuwa had a pretty solid Senior Bowl and could become a plug and play starter.
