Green Bay Packers 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Green Bay Packers from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Green Bay Packers, check out our 2021 Green Bay Packers Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Packers:

Rotoworld - Thor Nystrom (8/21)

22. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC

After eschewing a glaring receiver need this past offseason, the Packers must address the position heading into 2021 – and not with more stop-gap measures. This pick would reunite St. Brown with his brother, Equanimeous. It would also give the Packers a versatile, high-ceiling receiver prospect who can handle outside duties but was also a killer for USC's Air Raid in the slot last fall.

PFF - Mike Renner (8/19)

24. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

It's getting to the point where if the Packers don't take a receiver in the first round next spring, Aaron Rodgers may just up and demand a trade. Bateman has an incredibly polished game for a man who was only a true sophomore last season, and he can get off press at the line of scrimmage at an NFL level already. He led all receivers in college football by averaging 3.6 yards per route from a split-wide alignment.

The Draft Network - Kyle Crabbs (8/19)

20. Jay Tufele, IDL, USC

The addition of Tufele might be a bit of a surprise, but the Packers are a team that needs help in run defense and after locking in Kenny Clark for the long-term, the Packers would love to get another stud to play next to him and keep the team's pass-rushers in one-on-ones off the edge. At 315 pounds, Tufele fits the mold to play inside for the Packers.

2020 NFL Power Rankings: Green Bay Packers

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Green Bay Packers rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Post-Draft NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Packers in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 8

If you thought Aaron Rodgers' body language and sideline interactions were scrutinized before, get ready for it to be multiplied. The rules of Hot Sports Takes require you to pick a side: You either have to love the Jordan Love pick or hate it. If we're looking strictly at today and slightly more broadly at the season, we hate it. It's reasonable (and actually responsible) to plan for the future at quarterback, but it also feels like disaster waiting to happen.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 7

Why didn't they help Aaron Rodgers in the draft? Why didn't they help the defense? Trading up in the first round for a quarterback was a bad move.

Green Bay Packers Fantasy Football Projections

Not only do we have fantasy football projections by positions, we have team-by-team fantasy projections as well.

Here are our projections for the Green Bay Packers running backs for the 2020 NFL season:

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Aaron Jones205.2933.78.2142.4356.22.12190.97
Missing four games apiece in his first two seasons, Jones played a full 16-game slate and delivered for fantasy owners as only Christian McCaffrey scored more fantasy points at the position in 2019. While Jamaal Williams remained involved, Jones racked up 1,558 scrimmage yards and scored a whopping 19 total touchdowns. Instead of drafting help for Aaron Rodgers and the passing offense, the Packers invested a high pick (second-rounder) in a 247-pound running back that will likely steal a few (especially valuable goal-line) carries from Jones.
Jamaal Williams74.6313.31.3127.4208.21.7870.69
Williams has averaged only 4.67 yards per touch over his three-year career. While he played just 35% of Green Bay's offensive snaps last season, Williams finished as a top-36 fantasy running back (flex range) in 2019.
A.J. Dillon80.8351.53.646.443.50.1362.12
Jones finished as fantasy's RB2 last season and is clearly the RB to own in Green Bay. The unexpected use of a second-round pick on Dillon, however, could lead to a bigger role than most would expect although the pick was more likely looking ahead to 2021 as both Jones and Williams are free agents after this season.
