Round 4, 132nd Overall: Daniel Bellinger, TE, San Diego State
The tight end position is one that needs some clarity for the Green Bay Packers. We don’t know if Robert Tonyan or Marcedes Lewis will be back in 2022, and even if Tonyan is, there is a question of injury. Josiah Deguara has also dealt with injuries and hasn’t become the reliable dual-threat talent just yet.
Enter Daniel Bellinger, who has made a name for himself in recent months leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft. Bellinger is a phenomenal blocker inline, who has the athleticism to unlock more as a pass-catcher. He flashes some hip sink as a receiving threat and can work to develop it with the Packers while being a “sixth lineman” early in his career.
Round 4, 140th Overall: Percy Butler, S, Louisiana
It’ll be interesting to see what the Green Bay Packers do at the safety position in the draft. They haven’t extended the contract of Adrian Amos, so it’s possible he isn’t around in 2023. It could be addressed earlier, but with new developments, safety takes a backseat until day three.
Percy Butler has an intriguing skill set. He has flashed some range but does a great job filling the alley and making plays near the line of scrimmage. His processing skills are quick, and he’s a great mover in space.
