Day 2: Packers Draft Central

Here's who the Packers are taking in final mock drafts of 2018

If a team believes they can harness that on a consistent basis Sweat should be gone before the first day is out.

The Green Bay Packers might be busy on the third day of the National Football League draft. That's a nice pick to make to finish the draft in the seventh round, even if it doesn't eventually pay out.

"They've got Aaron Rodgers sitting there as a Super Bowl calibre quarterback and they are wasting some of his best years".

The Packers traded out of the 14th overall pick with the Saints, moving down to 27th. This was shocking for two reasons. That doesn't mean the 21-year old is still a superb prospect though.

As ESPN's Dan Graziano noted, the Saints may have won the draft previous year by landing Marshon Lattimore and Alvin Kamara. That left last year's second-round pick, Kevin King, as the Packers' top cornerback following an injury-shortened rookie year. By doing so, he essentially passed on Derwin James, a reported favorite of theirs.

The Seahawks should love Sweat's athletic ability as they look to combat something of a developing talent drain up front. The Packers gained the 27th pick, a fifth-round pick this season (No. 147 overall) and New Orleans' first-round pick next season. He is the first MU receiver to be selected in the draft since 2015, when the Rams picked Bud Sasser in the sixth round.

Timing Of Arsenal Departure Not My Decision, Says Wenger
The club, sixth in the league, face Spanish side Atletico Madrid in the first leg of a Europa League semi-final later on Thursday. There were moments of levity, including one when Wenger predicted the club would have no shortage of managerial applicants.

Along with Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, the Packers then moved up into the third round to select linebacker Oren Burks.

Gutekunst hinted moves were likely on Day 2, with 10 total picks in his arsenal to use in order to jockey his way back into the second or third rounds Friday.

They needed to add a wide receiver, and now have their player in J'Mon Moore out of Missouri.

Now yes, it is a surprise that they drafted Alexander given he is shorter than their normal required height for corners.

Wide receiver and offensive line are also position of needs. He struggled mightily a year ago with injuries, but evaluators do not expect that trend to continue. Sometimes it falls a little more in your favor; sometimes it doesn't fall in your favor.

Seattle still doesn't have a second round pick.
