Green Bay Packers History of 14th Overall NFL Draft Picks

The Anaheim, Calif. native chose to leave Notre Dame a year early instead of trying to come back and improve his game. Scott had just five punts returned as a senior, crediting the success to a renewed focus on hang time. He pulled in eight interceptions and recorded an nearly equally as impressive 18 passes defended, thus displaying his elite ability to make plays on the ball. Who will the Seahawks pick? Brown (a little bit of both) give them intriguing post-Jordy Nelson options behind Davante Adams at receiver.

The Packers made a trade earlier in the evening with the Saints, getting New Orleans's No. 27 pick and fifth-round pick in the 2018 draft.

The tight end class is not as strong as that of a year ago, when three went in the first round. He has the talent and traits to become a long-time National Football League starter. You only need to watch Rob Gronkowski to see what a difference a generational one can make. But the Packers medical staff examined him at the combine and the team wasn't concerned about the injury or Alexander's durability. "The 6'0", 196-pounder started 13 games.

Green Bay could also use an edge rusher to help Clay Matthews and Nick Perry.

Sweat is something of a similar prospect to Carter. Last year was his most productive year when he recorded 8.5 sacks. Cards fans expected big things out of the ball-hawking corner in his junior season, but injuries kept him out from most of the season, and really hampering the Cards chances of making a big-time bowl. He earned second-team All-America honors from the AFCA as well as first-team All-SEC honors from conference coaches.

The Seahawks should love Sweat's athletic ability as they look to combat something of a developing talent drain up front.

When the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft begins in an hour or so, the Panthers will be on the clock, with a pick they acquired in a trade with the Packers, who got it from the Browns.

Green Bay remembered how hard life can be without Aaron Rodgers in 2017, when the quarterback missed nine games with a collarbone injury.

"But Green is 6'4" and 275 pounds with a 4.73-second 40 time under his belt and 10 sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss in 2017. For a while, he was listed on ESPN's "best available player" status for inside linebackers. They also lost a versatile defender in free agency when safety Morgan Burnett left for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
