Green Bay Packers 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 9.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 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.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Green Bay Packers, check out our 2021 Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Database.

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

EDSFootball - Hanson (4/15)

29. Jamin Davis, LB, Kentucky

Whether or not the Packers are willing to use their first-round pick on a linebacker, Davis has earned his share of Round 1 buzz and inside linebacker is one of the team's top needs. While inexperienced as a one-year starter, Davis had a breakout 2020 campaign (team-high 102 tackles) and he's a rangy, three-down linebacker with explosive athleticism and length.

Fox Sports - Rang (4/15)

29. Creed Humphrey, IOL, Oklahoma

As long as Aaron Rodgers is in town, protecting the league's MVP should be priority No. 1. With the Packers losing Pro Bowl center Corey Linsley to free agency, the club should take advantage of this year's underrated group of interior blockers. Humphrey's grit and experience in a heavy shotgun scheme should make his jump to the NFL a relatively smooth one.

CBS Sports - Jones (4/14)

24. Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern

Trade details: Packers give up first-rounder (No. 29) and third-rounder (No. 92) for No. 24 and fourth-rounder (No. 140). Packers GM Brian Gutekunst has moved in the first round in each of the past three years so why not make it four? With the Browns needing a corner at 26, the Packers trade with another storied franchise for the best CB remaining after a down year from Kevin King.

Washington Post - Clayton (4/14)

29. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

The Packers could also consider an offensive lineman here, but too many of the best ones are gone in this scenario. Aaron Rodgers will be disappointed if they miss out on a top receiver for a second consecutive draft.

The Athletic - Brugler (4/14)

29. Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

A top-10 pick based on raw talent, Farley will likely see a slight slide on draft day due to his medical situation (He had back surgery last month). How far? That's anyone's guess right now, but he could prove to be an unbelievable value in the late first round.

Yahoo Sports! - Edholm (4/13)

29. Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

The Packers have been aggressive in Round 1 under GM Brian Gutekunst, trading up multiple times the past few years. Drafting Farley would be a different form of aggression, betting that Farley's health worries are worth the risk on a player who was a possible top-10 pick at one point. And traditionally, this is a club that is conservative when it comes to medical risks. But they sure could use some insurance for Kevin King, and Farley could be a home run selection -- or, if his back problems worsen, a whiff.

ESPN - Kiper (4/13)

29. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

Like the Saints, the Packers haven't been able to add roster improvements because they're up against the cap, so let's snag a wide receiver for reigning MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Bateman played outside and in the slot for the Golden Gophers, averaging 20.3 yards per catch in 2019. He would instantly become Green Bay's No. 2 wideout behind Davante Adams. Bateman is the sixth and final Round 1 wide receiver in this mock draft. The Packers could also address the interior of their offensive line, particularly with longtime starting center Corey Linsley leaving in free agency. - Schrager (4/8)

29. Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri

Joe Barry is the new DC and his specialty is LB play. I'm not sure GB's defense didn't miss Blake Martinez roaming the middle in big games last year. Bolton isn't going to jump off the page with eye-popping athleticism, but everyone says he'll be the QB of whichever defense he joins.
