Green Bay Packers 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 3.0

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.

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

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

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (1/20)

32. Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State

Surprise! McBride is an athletic, pass-catching monster at the tight end position who'd be a welcomed addition in Green Bay, regardless of who the team's quarterback is next year.

ESPN - Mel Kiper (1/19)

32. Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State

Is Aaron Rodgers staying in Green Bay or not? That's the ominous cloud that will hang over the team's offseason. Either way, I don't see it letting superstar wideout Davante Adams leave in free agency, so let's move to the other top need on offense. Robert Tonyan snagged 11 touchdowns in 2020, but he tore his ACL in October and is a free agent in the offseason. The Packers could bring him back on a short-term deal, or they could find a long-term solution with McBride, the draft's best tight end. He caught 90 passes for 1,121 yards in 2021, and he's also a good blocker.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (1/19)

32. DeMarvin Leal, IDL, Texas A&M

The Packers love toolsy front-seven defenders, and Leal is exactly that. He isn't yet the sum of his parts, which is why he could still be available at this point in the first round. But at 6-4 and 290 pounds, Leal can line up anywhere on the defensive line and has the traits to develop into a productive starter.

PFF - Austin Gayle (1/17)

32. Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State

Green Bay is the current betting favorite to win the Super Bowl, and that's only because Aaron Rodgers decided to look past his relationship with the front office and chase a ring with Davante Adams & Co. General manager Brian Gutekunst should double down on keeping Rodgers happy and attack the wide receiver position at the back end of Round 1.

Penn State's Jahan Dotson can win on the outside and from the slot. He earned 75.0-plus PFF grades in 2020 and 2021 and currently ranks 30th on PFF's draft board.

Baltimore Sun - C.J. Doon (1/14)

32. Arnold Ebiketie, EDGE, Penn State

Depending on what happens with Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, there aren't a ton of holes on the Packers' roster. The 6-3, 256-pound Ebiketie, who recorded eight sacks and 52 pressures this season after transferring from Temple, would provide solid depth if Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith don't stick around in Green Bay.

Athlon Sports - Bryan Fischer (1/13)

32. David Bell, WR, Purdue

Assuming he's still around, Aaron Rodgers finally gets some first-round draft help in the form of the playmaking Bell. His ability to make incredible catches and haul in difficult throws make him a nice insurance policy as much as a potential complement to Davante Adams should the latter return in 2022.

San Diego Union Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/13)

32. David Bell, WR, Purdue

It's very likely Davante Adams doesn't stick around if Aaron Rodgers is elsewhere. Bell has gotten lost in the shuffle with the top available wide receivers, but his route-running is advanced and his YAC ability should make him an impact player early in his career. He definitely deserves first-round consideration.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/12)

32. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

If Green Bay is able to complete its reconciliation with Aaron Rodgers, what better way to celebrate the repaired relationship than by granting him his long-awaited first-round receiver? With his go-up-and-get-it play style and strong hands, Burks could endear himself quickly to Rodgers as a jump-ball target and complement to Davante Adams, who also has to address his future in Green Bay amid his expiring contract.

For The Win - Charles McDonald (1/12)

32. Drake Jackson, EDGE, USC

The Packers don't have many needs, but they could use another young, cheap contract along their pass rushing front.

The Draft Network - Joe Marino (1/10)

32. Daniel Fa'alele, OT, Minnesota

The depth of the Packers' offensive line has been stressed across the last few seasons and the team has had to say goodbye to a few long-term fixtures. The need to replenish the group remains, regardless of who is under center in 2022 and beyond.

Daniel Faalele is a massive man with rare mobility for his size. He could immediately stabilize the right tackle position and strengthen the nucleus of young blockers in the mix for the Packers to improve the starting unit--and while doing so, make the group deeper.
