Happy New Year and Go Pack Go. While the Green Bay Packers are peaking at the right time and surging into the playoffs it’s never too early here for draft talk. It has been and will be very different heading into the draft this season. At the very least this will get some names out there that would look good in green and yellow. This is Packers 2021 Mock Draft 1.0.
Round 1 – Terrace Marshall Jr. WR LSU
If we have learned anything it is the Packers brass invest in the future. In 2022 the wide receiver room might look very different. It’s time to grab a legit young talent in case we have turnover. Step in Terrace Marshall Jr. who has the size speed and route-running ability to be a star. With 23 touchdowns during the last two seasons, this cat would flourish next to Davante Adams.
Round 2 – Daviyon Nixon DL Iowa
Why Daviyon Nixon is flying under the radar thus far is a mystery. He is as good as any DT in the country. The big man is light on his feet and has jarring power. His versatility helps free up Kenny Clark with one-on-ones. You can never have enough talent in the trenches. Added plus he is Wisconsin born and bred.
Round 3 – Rodarius Williams CB Oklahoma State
A good off man corner that fits what the Packers like to do. Rodarius Williams can come up and jam also. He has good size and a high degree of football IQ. More importantly, he stays healthy. Mental toughness second to none.
Round 4 – Marquez Stevenson WR Houston
Double dip at wide receiver, why not? Marquez Stevenson is more than just a wideout though. He is the chess piece Matt Lafleur loves to have. Filling in the Tyler Ervin role, this guy is lightning in a bottle. He can play teams as well as do all the motion stuff on O. A WR body type this team doesn’t have.
Round 5 – Josh Jobe CB Alabama
Intriguing prospect with too much talent to pass up. Josh Jobe is listed as a corner but he might be better off in a Raven Greene-type role. Oozing with athletic ability and an aggressive style of play Jobe brings the dog to a fight. He is raw and will need coaching up but the sky is the limit. Instant special team player maker.

Round 6 – Kylin Hill RB Mississippi State
Kylin Hill is better than a day 3 pick but he will have to answer to some off-field and commitment red flags. On the field, Hill is a rocked up bowling ball. He doesn’t have the long speed but he is a grinder like so many of the Packers’ backs. For both Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, the future in Green Bay in question. If they both leave via free agency, the Pack needs to add a complement to A.J. Dillon. Great value if Hill is on the board at this point. Also is a plus in the passing game.
Round 7 – Landon Young OL Kentucky
Packers OL special. Country strong bully that is a pancaker. Landon Young is also a captain and excels in the classroom. He has the versatility to play right tackle or bounce inside. Just a throwback type player made to play in Packerland.
Mike Strachan – WR University of Charleston
He might be a D2 player but it is worth kicking the tires. This Bahamas native was a man among boys and that’s putting it nicely. He has NFL size and speed to get a look in camp. At 6’5″ this guy was a track star in high school. 19 touchdowns last year will get attention.
Elerson Smith – DE Northern Iowa
Another small school freak of nature. Long lean and a pass-rushing machine. If he can add good weight to his 6’7″ frame he is a 5 tech gem.
