The Green Bay Packers enter Week 12 with a 4-7 record and a slim chance of making the NFL Playoffs. Despite their preseason status as NFC North favorites, the Packers must now focus on next season.
Expert Predictions for the Packers Mock Draft Following Week 11
Green Bay’s next offseason will be crucial, as they must decide on a quarterback strategy.
Will Aaron Rodgers be there? And, if so, do they want to postpone Jordan Love’s inevitable takeover for another season after what they just witnessed?
These questions will be answered, but the NFL Draft is unlikely to play a significant role. Love is the Packers’ first-round quarterback, and they’ve been grooming him for quite some time.

Having said that, Green Bay could add another target for whoever the quarterback is. At the moment, most NFL mock drafts are centered on this topic.
Mock Draft Roundup for the Green Bay Packers: Tight End
According to Pro Football Network, Green Bay is filling a separate tight end need. There are two elite receiving tight ends in this year’s draft class that many experts believe will go early. The Packers could land one in Notre Dame’s Michael Mayer, who “brings a great blend of run blocking and pass catching.”
If the Packers miss out on Mayer, Georgia target Darnell Washington could be a viable option. CBS Sports compares Washington to Green Bay, which they expect to make a lot of noise at the NFL Combine.
Mock Draft Roundup for the Green Bay Packers: Wide Receiver
Over the weekend, 247Sports mocked Tennessee Vols wide receiver Jalin Hyatt to Green Bay. While the South Carolina Gamecocks held him in check, he’s proven to be a difference-maker on the outside for UT and Hendon Hooker.
Sports Illustrated mocked the Packers’ pursuit of Southern California wide receiver Jordan Addison.
Addison, who previously attended Pitt, won the Biletnikoff award as the best wide receiver in the country last season. While he lacks elite size, he has a knack for breaking through in tight spaces.
He’s also played with two NFL quarterbacks, Kenny Pickett and Caleb Williams, which should help his case.
