Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Roundup 5.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Green Bay Packers from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Packers:

SI - Hanson (3/11)

28. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue

Karlaftis didn't run the 40 at the combine, but his 38" vertical jump and 10'1" broad jump showed his explosiveness. He lacks ideal length and bend at the top of his rush, but he has a quick first step, violent hands and a nonstop motor with the versatility to line up inside or outside.

CBS Sports - Fornelli (3/11)

28. Arnold Ebiketie, EDGE, Penn State

With Aaron Rodgers getting a fat new bag and Davante Adams getting the franchise tag, the Packers don't have a lot of money to spend on the defensive side of the ball. While they might still go for a receiver here, a young pass rusher with the potential Ebiketie has could prove to be the wiser decision.

San Diego Union Tribune - Brown (3/10)

28. Kenyon Green, IOL, Texas A&M

The Packers utilized seven different offensive line combinations with nine different players taking meaningful snaps during the 2021 season. The former five-star recruit can play either guard or tackle at a high level -- Green made starts at every single offensive line position except center this season.

The Draft Network - Crabbs (3/9)

28. Boye Mafe, EDGE, Minnesota

There are few hotter prospects right now than Mafe. Length, explosiveness, and flashes of pass-rush prowess have folks plenty excited about this former Golden Gopher. This is an "on brand" pick for the Packers, too--they love their trench guys up there in Wisconsin (even if he's not a Badger, I'd presume).

ESPN - McShay (3/9)

28. Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams are back! Great news for Green Bay. But now the Packers have to capitalize and go all in on this offense. Marquez Valdes-Scantling is a free agent, and Rodgers could use another receiver he trusts. Dotson is undersized at 5-foot-11 and 178 pounds, but he has speed (4.43 in the 40-yard dash), suddenness (36 inches in the vertical jump) and great ball skills (91 catches in 2021). He could be a true possession receiver to complement Adams, who was franchise-tagged on Tuesday.

NFL.com - Zierlein (3/8)

28. Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan

The former tight end is a fluid athlete with above-average upside and the potential to play either guard or tackle, which is why he should be in consideration for the Packers.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (3/8)

28. DeMarvin Leal, IDL, Texas A&M

Aaron Rodgers is back for another ride, and likely bringing Davante Adams with him.

That means the Green Bay Packers can look to the defensive side of the football with this selection.

In years past it was something of a meme on the Touchdown Wire Matchup Podcast: "Double-team Kenny Clark on the inside and you are good up front against the Packers." Now Green Bay can slot DeMarvin Leal along the defensive line with Clark, and use Leal's positional flexibility to create problems for opposing offensive lines. Leal has aligned anywhere from a 3-technique to the EDGE, and perhaps on the inside across from Clark he will find some one-on-one opportunities to get after the passer.
