Round 6, Pick 207: Keaton Mitchell, RB, East Carolina
The Green Bay Packers brought it Keaton Mitchell for a visit, which is something that fires the imagination. Mitchell is a smaller running back at 179 pounds, but the damage he could do in the “Tyler Ervin role” on offense is easy to envision. Mitchell is an explosive play generator, and could provide a spark in the running back room as well.
Round 7, Pick 232: Gervarrius Owens, SAF, Houston
Gervarrius Owens has some experience at corner and safety, so his understanding of coverage spans quite wide. Owens is likely best in a role that lets him operate near the line of scrimmage, but don’t rule him out as someone who can handle the duties in split field coverage either.
Round 7, Pick 235: Jovaughn Gwyn, G, South Carolina
An underrated storyline for the Green Bay Packers ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft is the fact that Jon Runyan is in the final year of his deal. That could mean guard becomes a priority earlier in the draft. For now though, Gwyn is a solid late round selection who can provide depth at the position.
Round 7, Pick 242: Grant DuBose, WR, Charlotte
The double dip at receiver happens here to continue to load up and help Love. Grant DuBose is everyone’s favorite sleeper at wide receiver. He has the size (6’2″ and 201 pounds) to succeed on the boundary, makes tough catches in traffic, possesses good body control, and has consistently gotten better as a route runner.
Round 7, Pick 256: P.J. Mustipher, DL, Penn State
Last but not least, the Packers have to find a way to stop the run. T.J. Slaton is playing fine as the nose tackle in five-man fronts, but adding to that rotation to give Kenny Clark and Devonte Wyatt the ability to flank the nose tackle all the would be beneficial in several ways.
