Read on Packer report 15 players that the Packers should consider. Albeit a few wont be available at 22 but it was interesting. Heck if we got 5 or more of them we would have a hell of a draft. Lot of talent all over the board this year which kind of also means almost everyone is going to get better.
I'm thinking Gutt, Murphy and Ball are thinking, were going to lose some top defensive talent next year because we cant keep then all, so we have to consider players at key postions on defense to replace them. Thus, I wouldnt be surprised in one O line guy and top receiver with the 22, 28 picks. Then edge, safety linebackers as BPA choices.
If the pack trade back then for sure they are looking at filling loses for next year based on cap and money available.

Well the frost is on the pumpkin
And the hay is in the barn
And pappy's come to rambling on
Stumbling around drunk
Down on the farm

Prince - I wann be your lover. Overlooked song.

Nags- Do you think Gute would pull a Mike Ditka and trade all of our picks for Jordan Davis?

There are several dump trucks worth of mocks BEFORE the draft, but almost none post-draft.

Try this:
After the draft, use that as your board.
You can make any pick for the Packers that is still on the board at that pick.
You can decline a trade the Packers made on draft day, but you cannot invent draft deals that never happened.

Now salt those choices away for maybe three years. Then re-visit it, and see how you did compared to the Packers.

You have the advantage of knowing where each pick is taken (which is quite an advantage), but the Packers did have the same choices and they had a gazillion more resources to evaluate the draftees.

I'm on board, but let's do it where everyone can see our picks.
It's a huge cheat code to do it with hindsight, as far as comparing to whom the Packers took, but it would be a fair exercise to compare to other draftniks.
Maybe do it as a Fan Post?

How about this result today?
BG trades BOTH first round picks (to teams looking to draft a QB for the 5th year option)
He gets those teams' 1st round pick in 2023, plus their 2nd round pick this year. The trade value favors the Packers, but teams might be willing to pay the piper to get that 5th year QB contract.

A low cost this year in trade for a great future.

The Packers end up with FOUR 2nd round picks this year and THREE 1st round picks next year. The second rounders this year are in the sweet spot for the Packers, having good WRs probably available, while three 1st round picks next year means they can springboard into the Post-Rodgers world.

Thanks for sharing this information with us! Writing was and is the hardest thing for me, so I have always tried to avoid it. However, now I have to write a lot of essays and in order to finish all of them on time, I tried to pay for papers as some of them have tough topics with complicated requirements which take me a lot of time and energy to finish. And in this way, I save a lot of time and can focus more on other essays which are more important to me.
