Round 1, 22nd Overall: Daxton Hill, S, Michigan
The Green Bay Packers are looking very good in the secondary. A Jaire Alexander extension feels imminent, even if it’s in the summer. Alexander, Rasul Douglas, and Eric Stokes is a fabulous corner room, and Adrian Amos and Darnell Savage are a very good duo at safety.
However, we know the Packers like to look ahead when making selections. With Amos set to be a free agent after 2022 and a lingering fifth-year option to pick up for Savage, it might become a need as soon as 2023.
Daxton Hill would be a fabulous addition to the secondary, and would make the room even more loaded than before. Hill is a versatile playmaker and can line up everywhere. According to PFF, Hill has spent the majority of his time in the box and slot, but he does have 311 career deep snaps. It isn’t as much as others, but when you see the closing speed as a blitzer and fluidity in coverage, playing on the roof of a defense won’t be an issue.
Round 1, 28th Overall: Logan Hall, DL, Houston
Yes, more versatility in the first round for the Green Bay Packers. There was talk about the Packers looking to add a rusher on the interior, and the Packers will also likely look for edge rusher depth with potential starting value in the draft.
Logan Hall fits both of those needs to a degree. At 6’6 1/8″ and 283 pounds, Hall is very much a hybrid player. He’s had snaps at nose tackle, 3-technique, and on the edge in his time with Houston. Hall packs a punch at the point of attack, and has been a wrecking ball dismantling offensive linemen. He has an array of moves to work around linemen, and showed off some more explosion down at the Senior Bowl. He might have to convert to defensive end, but kicking him inside to rush on third downs will be a dangerous thing for the NFC to deal with.
