Green Bay Packers 2022 Mock Draft Roundup & Takeaways 2.0

With the Green Bay Packers on their farewell week while the rest of the NFC preps for the wildcard weekend, I thought this was a good time to put together the second edition of the 2022 Mock Draft Roundup & Takeaway.

While we can hopefully see three more Green Bay Packers games this season, the 2022 NFL draft is now just a little over three months away. While a lot is going to change between today and design, a look at who multiple design analysts the packers are choosing can give us some names to watch as we progress through the pre-design process.

As always, in addition to the selection and the findings of the analyst draft, I will also share my thoughts on the selection of the Green Bay Packers.

Option 32: Kingsley Enagbare, Edge Rusher, South Carolina

“Za’Darius Smith is back for the playoffs but it is likely that one or both of him and Preston Smith will be gone in the near future. Green Bay is accountable for these losses. Enagbare is one of the best candidates regardless of the position. “

Bring away: Edge rusher is absolutely one position the Green Bay Packers could choose in Round 1. While this is a strong position this season, there is a real possibility that both Preston Smith and Za’Darius Smith could play elsewhere in 2022 while Jonathan Garvin and Tipa Galeai are still developing players with caps.

Enagbare has taken over 1,500 career snapshots in four years in South Carolina, but this season has been its most prolific by far. According to the PFF ($$), Enagbare recorded 45 exposures along with four sacks. He was also the eighth highest edge rusher from PFF that season.

Mike Renner – PFF

Selection 32: Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan

“The Packers continuously invest in their offensive line. They love athletes on the position, and the former tight end is sure to qualify. After two years in a duel, he received the nation’s highest rating in 2021. “

Bring away: You will never see me pissed off with an offensive tackle selection on the first round. While David Bakhtiari is under contract for the next few seasons, there are some potential question marks in a real duel. Will Billy Turner be cut because of cap savings? Can Yosh Nijman slide over to the correct tackle? Not to mention that Dennis Kelly is going to be a free agent and not a long term answer.

In the last two seasons, which consisted of 690 pass-blocking snapshots, Raimann only allowed one sack and 15 total pressure. It was also very effective as a run blocker.

Zack Patraw – SI

Option 32: Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa

“Penning has strong hands that defenders can uproot. He plays calmly and calmly, his footwork is smooth. He’s not the most athletic, revealing guy, but he’s shown enough competence to block in space. “

Bring away: Once again, I love the idea of ​​adding up the offensive line depth with an offensive tackle selection. Penning stands 6’7 “, weighs 321 pounds, and was a starter for the Panthers in the left tackle for three years. Notably this season he let in just one sack, pushed it eleven times, and was one of PFF’s top-rated tackles – despite it It is worth noting that he was called up to 16 penalties this year.

Bleacher Report

Option 32: Devonte Wyatt, IDL, Georgia

“Georgia’s Devonte Wyatt could take the worst first move of any defensive lineman in this class,” Klassen said. “He breaks out of his stance when the ball snaps. While his hand placement can get a bit wild, he’s too explosive and slick in space not to bet on. “

Wyatt could take a seat from Kingsley Keke and give the Packers one of the biggest and most active fronts in football. “

Bring away: Get Kenny Clark some help is the old adage here at Green Bay, and although he’s got some help from Dean Lowry this season, along with some lightning bolts from TJ Slaton, Tyler Lancaster and Kingsley Keke, this is a position which can certainly still be maintained can be upgraded. It’s also a position Green Bay hasn’t invested too much in over the past few seasons.

The 6’3 “- 315 pound Wyatt has nearly 1,500 career snaps, including starring roles in each of the past three seasons for Georgia. After a bad 2020 season in terms of pressure generated, Wyatt would bounce back at 26 pressure and four sacks – a career high. It would make an impressive 36 prints during the 2019 season.

Much of his snaps have been lined up in the B gap per PFF, but Wyatt has a decent amount of experience in the A gap and above the tackle as well.

Option 32: Travon Walker, Edge Rusher, Georgia

“If the Packers are forced to switch from one of their top edge rushers this off-season due to wage cap issues, then this is where they need to look for a replacement. Walker hasn’t caused enough buzz as a potential first-round player despite being an influential player in the nation’s most dominant defense. “

Bring away: You can’t go wrong with another edge rusher – like I mentioned above, this could be a huge need and it’s a prime position too. Walker saw most of his college snaps this season recording 34 pressure points, five sacks, and 20 stops – or games that result in a loss to the offense, according to the PFF.

Option 32: Daniel Faalele, OT, Minnesota

“The depth of the Packers’ offensive line has been stressed over the last few seasons and the team has had to say goodbye to some long-term games. The need to replenish the group remains regardless of who is at the center in 2022 and beyond.

Daniel Faalele is a massive man with rare agility for his size. He was able to immediately stabilize the correct tackle position and strengthen the nucleus of young blockers in the mix for the packers in order to improve the starting unit – and thereby make the group deeper. “

Bring away: Well, you already know that I have no problem with the Green Bay Packers attacking early on. Faalele is massive, six feet tall and weighs 380 pounds. Plus, he’s taken nearly 2,100 snapshots at the right tackle in the past three seasons, allowing only five sacks and 33 prints in that time, including just eight last season.

Tip 32: David Bell, WR, Purdue

“Purdue passcatcher David Bell combines impressive speed, ridiculous body control and determined physicality to make a difference in the wide receiver position. He is a three tier threat that routinely adds yards after being caught. It would be special if, after years of campaigning for a wide receiver, the Green Bay Packers did so after Aaron Rodgers left Lambeau Field for the last time. “

Bring away: It’s not officially a mock draft roundup without a wide range of beneficiaries, is it? But kidding aside, if there’s one year Green Bay could realistically win a receiver in the first round, I imagine that was it.

We don’t know what the future holds for Davante Adams, Equanimeous St. Brown or Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and in all likelihood Randall Cobb will be dropped. Without Cobb, Amari Rodgers is currently the only recipient under contract beyond 2021.

At 6’2 “- 205 pounds, Bell meets the size and weight requirements that packers typically want from the recipient. He has 339 targets over the past three seasons, including 134 in 2021 and 128 in 2019 – with most of his snaps being on the border. Bell caught 68.4 percent of those targets at 12.7 yards per catch with 21 touchdowns.
