Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

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:

CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (3/9)

15. Brian Branch, S, Alabama

Branch is an amazingly sound tackler who can cover the slot, play in the box, or make plays downfield in coverage. He's what the Packers prioritize early in the draft.

ESPN - Todd McShay (3/7)

15. Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

I fit Mayer with Green Bay in my last mock, too. Let's improve this offensive supporting cast. Christian Watson looked awesome last season, but Allen Lazard and Robert Tonyan are free agents. It doesn't matter if it's Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love or me throwing the ball, this has to be a focus this offseason. Perhaps GM Brian Gutekunst becomes enamored with a receiver like USC's Jordan Addison or Ohio State's Jaxon Smith-Njigba, but I'm leaning toward Mayer, a 6-5 tight end with a wide catch radius and some physical traits after the catch. He came down with 67 catches for 809 yards and nine TDs last season, and he can be a serious matchup problem for opponents in the red zone. - Lance Zierlein (3/7)

15. Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

I believe any of top three tight ends could end up in this spot, depending on how the Packers prioritize athleticism vs. blocking, but Mayer is a solid combination of traits right here.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (3/7)

15. Brian Branch, S, Alabama

Though many will be hung up on his lackluster 4.58 40 time, Branch was outstanding during the combine positional drills and "stellar" in meetings, according to one NFL team source. He met with the Packers in Indianapolis, and his versatility would be a great fit in Green Bay's scheme.

USA Today - Nate Davis (3/7)

15. Nolan Smith, EDGE, Georgia

Mixed bag — at best — from the Pack's pair of first-round Georgia defenders, LB Quay Walker and DL Devonte Wyatt, in 2022. But why not keeping swinging on Bulldogs, especially after Smith's sub-4.4 40 and 41-inch vertical leap last week. Mostly recovered from a torn pectoral muscle that cut his 2022 season short, Smith would also address a problem area given Green Bay OLB Rashan Gary tore an ACL midway through last season.

The 33rd Team (3/7)

15. Dalton Kincaid, TE, Utah

Utah tight end Dalton Kincaid has mismatch qualities at tight end and is a quarterback-friendly option for whoever is under center for the Packers in 2023.

Bleacher Report (3/7)

15. Tyree Wilson, EDGE, Texas Tech

The Green Bay Packers love their defenders to be big, long and athletic. Texas Tech's Tyree Wilson fits the bill.

"Green Bay could opt for an offensive weapon here," Holder said. "With Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs heading into their second seasons, they can afford to wait until Round 2 to grab a wide receiver or tight end. Besides, Wilson is far too talented to pass up since he can play multiple spots along the defensive line.

"He has a similar body type as Preston Smith, who turns 31 in November. Jarran Reed is also set to hit free agency, while Rashan Gary enters a contract year. Thus an investment in a versatile defensive lineman is prudent."

The first-team All-American is 6'6" and 271 pounds with a pterodactyl-like 86-inch wingspan.

Much like Gary's selection four years ago, the Packers don't have a driving need to address their defensive front. However, Wilson is the type of physically-gifted prospect who tends to go higher in the process. The fact he's still available at this juncture is too good of a value to overlook talent for need.

Besides, defensive coordinator Joe Barry can flex the trio of Smith, Gary and Wilson all over his front to create mismatches and favorable one-on-one matchups.

Touchdown Wire - Doug Farrar (3/6)

15. Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma

I'm not hearing the amount of buzz about Harrison's potential that I thought I would after watching his tape, but there are guys who know more about offensive line play than I do who are all the way on it.

Through three seasons with the Sooners, Harrison allowed four sacks, three quarterback hits, and 26 quarterback hurries in 1,002 pass-blocking reps. He is an absolute plug-and-play guy for a team that is in need of future considerations at the left tackle position, as David Bakhtiari hasn't played a full season since 2019 — and no matter who the Packers' quarterback may be.

Los Angeles Times - Sam Farmer (3/4)

15. Michael Mayer, TE, Notre Dame

The Packers again avoid taking a wide receiver in the opening round and instead find a replacement for Robert Tonyan, whose deal is expiring.
