They are also reportedly targeting a quarterback at some point in the draft, and it looks like that may be the direction they go with their first round pick - if they can. According to Charlie Campbell of WalterFootball.com, the Packers are targeting Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes in the first round:
Green Bay is generally a very secretive team, so you can never rule out that the Packers have something else completely different up their sleeve. Some sources say even a quarterback like Texas Tech's Pat Mahomes is in play for Green Bay. He would be a good understudy to Aaron Rodgers. Similar to the Packers' franchise quarterback, Mahomes has a strong arm with mobility, athleticism, and moxie. For the Packers to take Mahomes, the value would have to be right, but Ted Thompson selected Rodgers in the first round with having Brett Favre for years to come, so you can never rule out Thompson looking down the road with Rodgers turning 34 later this year.
However, there isn't much of a chance that Mahomes drops to the Packers at No. 29, and Green Bay hasn't shown an indication that they are willing to trade up in the draft. Chat Sports has Mahomes going No. 12 overall to the Browns in our latest mock draft.
Dobbs is currently projected to be a late-second or early-third round pick, while Evans and Russell are both projected to be seventh round picks or undrafted.Back to the Green Bay Packers Newsfeed
