Packers 2019 NFL Mock Draft

This Packers season was one of the most disappointing in a long time. 
However, the New Orleans Saints were in a very similar situation just a couple of years ago. They also had an elite quarterback, a below-average core around him, and a defense that was hit-or-miss during any given game.
The Saints didn’t rebuild; they reloaded through the draft and kept building around their franchise cornerstone. If the Packers want to follow the Saints blueprint, they can find themselves right back in contention to return the Lombardi Trophy to Green Bay. It starts with a solid draft. Here is my mock draft for the Packers:

Round 1, Pick 12 (12th overall): DE Brian Burns, Florida State

Jachai Polite is my number one choice for this pick, but he will be probably off the board so Burns is the choice. Burns is a versatile edge who can play in a 3-4 or 4-3.  He is a great athlete who might fly up big boards even more with a solid combine performance, but the Packers should be able to scoop him up.

Round 1, Pick 30 (30th overall): WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma

No need to explain. Get Aaron Rodgers some better weapons and a wideout that can run a 4.2. Brown would be lethal alongside Davante Adams against opposing defenses.

Round 2, Pick 12 (44th overall): S Taylor Rapp, Washington

Draft him as the starting strong safety and move Josh Jones to full-time LB. Simple as that.

Round 3, Pick 11 (75th overall): G Michael Jordan, Ohio State

Packers guards did not perform well this past season. Jordan would be a steal in the third round. He would likely be the day-one starter at right guard.

Round 4, Pick 12 (114th overall): TE Isaac Nauta, Georgia

Jimmy Graham was below average last year and could be cut. This TE class is very deep, ensuring that the Pack can find a solid starter in the later rounds. Nauta was underused at Georgia and could be a massive steal.

Round 4, Pick 16 (118th overall): CB Kris Boyd, Texas

A great man-to-man corner like Boyd would only fall this far if people considered him an off the field problem, but he is worth it at this point in the draft for Green Bay.

Round 5, Pick 12 (151st overall): LB Cameron Smith, USC

Round 6, Pick 12 (187th overall): CB, Mark Fields, Clemson

Round 6, Pick 20 (195th overall): DL, Renell Wren, Arizona State

Round 7, Pick 12 (228th overall): QB Gardner Minshew, Washington State


All four of the later-round picks could be solid depth players at positions of need.

It’s something that happens year after year with this team.
