2024 NFL Draft Grades: Green Bay Packers

The 2024 NFL Draft is now in the rearview mirror, and we have compiled a consensus ranking using NFL draft grades from a variety of sites.

What draft grades have the media given to the Green Bay Packers? What are they saying about the Packers' 2024 draft haul?

NFL.com - Grade: B

Day 1 grade: B
Day 2 grade: B
Day 3 grade: B-

Analysis: Morgan's pass-protection skills give him a chance to replace three-time Pro Bowler David Bakhtiari at left tackle, or he could prove himself a nice positional blocker at guard, allowing the Packers to get their five best linemen on the field together. Cooper and Bullard were excellent picks in Round 2, with both filling needs, but I was a bit ambivalent on the team using third-round selections on a running back (albeit a good one in Lloyd) and a second linebacker.

Monk and Glover should provide depth on the offensive line, while Williams' reliable tackling should make him a good special teams player. Trading a pick to move up for a second safety didn't seem like the best value, though -- especially when you consider Green Bay took another safety just one round later. Oladapo is also a quality defender, but using three choices on the same position means the team must now rely on free-agent edge rushers and 3-techniques to round out the defense. Pratt was an excellent value pick late in the draft, as was King, who has more upside than his pre-draft evaluation might suggest.

ESPN - Grade: B

Top needs entering the draft: Offensive tackle, defensive back, off-ball linebacker

If only every prediction in my mock drafts was as easy as Green Bay's this year. For months I've said the Packers needed to plug their void at left tackle in Round 1 as a result of this deep and talented OT class. Longtime starter David Bakhtiari is gone, and I thought they should identify the guy they liked most and take him. Turns out, that's exactly what GM Brian Gutekunst did.

Jordan Morgan (25) was a stalwart on the blind side for Arizona who rarely missed an assignment. He blew up edge defenders in the run game and made them look silly in pass sets. He'll be a plug-and-play starter. On Day 2, I loved the additions of linebacker Edgerrin Cooper (45) and safety Javon Bullard (58), both of whom I ranked No. 1 at their positions. Cooper can be a three-down defender because of his coverage tools, while Bullard is a do-it-all defensive back who will assist a unit that intercepted just seven passes last season, which ranked 31st in the league.

MarShawn Lloyd (88) can be a solid backup running back to Josh Jacobs. Linebacker Ty'Ron Hopper (91) isn't the same kind of player in coverage as Cooper, but he'll thump backs in the hole. He was overdrafted, but Green Bay is making the switch to a 4-3 defense and needs more bodies, so I understand it. I was surprised quarterback Michael Pratt (245) lasted until Round 7, but he won't have much of a chance to play in Green Bay.

I was all-in on the Packers after their first three picks, but the rest of this haul leaves me underwhelmed, especially on Day 3. Cooper and Bullard save it from a C+.

Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Roundup 3.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2024 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 Green Bay Packers:

ESPN - Mel Kiper (2/28)

25. Jordan Morgan, OT, Arizona

I'm squeezing one more offensive tackle into this Round 1 projection. David Bakhtiari hasn't been able to stay on the field since 2020 due to a nagging knee injury, which means there's a glaring void at left tackle in Green Bay. And I love what Morgan showed over 37 college starts, mostly at left tackle. His footwork in pass protection is outstanding, and he can stay in front of speedy edge rushers because of his arm length and quickness. He tore his ACL in November 2022 but was able to start 12 games last season, surrendering two sacks and seven total pressures. Green Bay could benefit from this deep OT group.

The Athletic - CFB Writers (2/27)

25. Tyler Guyton, OT, Oklahoma

General manager Brian Gutekunst has five picks within the top 100. The Packers just missed the run of first-round cornerbacks, and Fautanu is also gone, but they need to keep investing in this offensive line. When healthy, David Bakhtiari remains one of the best in the game, but the Packers have to keep thinking about who will protect Jordan Love in the years to come. Rasheed Walker's improvement at left tackle was notable as the season progressed, and Zach Tom has solidified the right side, but it's still a thin group. The last time the Packers drafted an offensive tackle in the first round was 2011 (Derek Sherrod of Mississippi State). — Snyder

2023 NFL Power Rankings: Green Bay Packers

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 18 roundup for the Green Bay Packers in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 17

Biggest offseason contract to watch: QB Jordan Love

After the kind of season he has put together in his first year as a starter, Love is going to want the Packers to tear up his existing contract, which averages just $13.5 million per year and will pay him only $6 million (plus incentives) this season. While they can't do anything until May because of the rule that says an extension can't be extended for 12 months, Love will almost certainly want it done before he takes the field for the 2024 season. Although the Packers got Love's services on the cheap this year, they're going to end up paying him near the top of the quarterback market next year. -- Rob Demovsky

NFL.com -- Rank: 16

The Packers' first post-Aaron Rodgers season opened with a win over the Bears, and it will take a reprise of that Sunday -- at Lambeau Field -- to get Jordan Love and Green Bay into the postseason. Chicago is a far different team than it was the last time around, arguably just as hot as the Packers down the stretch, with both teams having won five of their past seven games. Love reached the 30-TD mark in Sunday's win over the Vikings. Don't look now, but he's had a really impressive season on the whole. Week 1 hero Aaron Jones is back, too, turning in a 120-yard rushing performance against Minnesota. And assuming Jayden Reed is healthy, he's proving to be a rookie star in the making. Matt LaFleur has never lost to the Bears, who haven't won in Green Bay since 2015. Week 18 will add another terrific chapter to this historic rivalry, with the playoffs on the line and a feisty Chicago team that would love nothing more than to spoil a Pack party.

Jordan Love: Both Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers created (what many would describe as unnecessary) drama towards the tail end of their Packer tenures, but they also provided the franchise with tremendous stability at the position for three decades. Packers coach Matt LaFleur has talked up Love's "complete command" of Green Bay's offense, but growing pains should be expected as the franchise transitions to its next era. The team loaded up on several Day 2 pass catchers (Luke Musgrave, Jayden Reed, Tucker Kraft, etc.) in the draft to help support his long-term growth.
