Green Bay Packers 2023 Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 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:

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)

29. Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU

After TCU was shut out of the 2022 NFL Draft, Johnston could get the Horned Frogs back in the first round next April. He is a big athlete with outstanding body control and adjustment skills to make plays on the football downfield.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)

29. Emil Ekiyor Jr., IOL, Alabama

The offensive line rebuild is nearly complete for the Packers, but they could use another blue-chip addition to the interior. Ekiyor is equal parts athletic and powerful, and could be the final piece to a stellar starting lineup in front of Aaron Rodgers.

Fox Sports - Jason McIntyre (5/3)

29. Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU

The Tigers' QB situation has been a disaster, but Boutte has still delivered to the tune of 14 TDs in his first two seasons, and he's also a 4.37 burner in the 40.

PFF - Michael Renner (5/2)

29. Jaheim Bell, TE, South Carolina

Bell is more jumbo running back than true tight end at 6-foot-3, 230 pounds. The Gamecocks even utilized him as such, with seven carries for 40 yards last season. He's very dynamic post-catch for a man that size. He shed 13 tackles on 30 receptions in 2021.

CBS - Ryan Wilson (5/2)

29. Emil Ekiyor Jr., IOL, Alabama

Who knows what Aaron Rodgers' future holds beyond the '22 season but whomever ends up under center will benefit from consistency along the offensive line.

The Draft Network - Joe Marino (4/30)

29. Emil Ekiyor Jr., IOL, Alabama

The Packers' offensive line is coming together with the addition of Sean Rhyan but can still be upgraded on the interior if Elgton Jenkins is going to play tackle. Ekiyor is a mauler in the run game and a wall in pass protection.

The 33rd Team - Michael Schottey (4/30)

28. Brandon Joseph, S, Notre Dame

Joseph might be the best safety in college football next season and was an All American for his original Northwestern team. Replacing Kyle Hamlton isn't easy, but Joseph has the ability to do it and then head north because the Packers absolutely refuse to draft a receiver in the first round.

Pro Football Network - Cam Mellor (4/30)

28. Marvin Mims, WR, Oklahoma

Playing much bigger than his frame, Marvin Mims is a highlight-reel player with terrific football speed. He won't blaze past defenders in the short areas of the field. However, don't be surprised if he picks up his pace in the open field with his long stride.

Mims' greatest attribute, however, is his catching skills. His sideline awareness and high-pointing ability are elite. He's a great route runner and has solid lateral agility. The Green Bay Packers continue the overhaul of their depleted receiving corps.

Barstool Sports - Steven Cheah (4/30)

29. Josh Downs, WR, North Carolina

Will the Packers really draft a WR early to help out Aaron Rodgers? Nah probably not.
