PACKERS

Because of the terrible squeeze the 2022 cap puts on the Packers, they most likely lose a top edge guy - Zadarius Smith - and top receivers - Davante Adams, though Adams might be franchised for one year, and Randall Cobb, maybe others too. There will be other painful losses due to how badly the cap impacts them (for example, they might also lose edge Preston Smith).

The Packers have enjoyed much improved play at ILB this year, with Campbell and Barnes. In the past ILB was more often addressed in rounds 3 (Burks) and 4 (Ryan, Martinez). ILB is an unlikely position choice for their first pick, both from a history perspective and because they are doing well with what they have there now.

Therefore, I suspect they go Edge with the first pick (it being an exceptional year for that position) and WR with their second. This assumes the value is there. Historically, they also love DBs in round 1 (or top of round 2), but with CBs Jaire Alexander/Eric Stokes/Rasul Douglas and maybe Kevin King (another very possible cap victim) and Safeties Darnell Savage and Adrian Amos, their need at DB isn't that serious, this year.

While an OT is something they might look at if in need, they currently have Bakhtiari (just getting fit again), and Turner as tackles (which is fine) and Elgton Jenkins and Yosh Nijman who can provide high-quality backup there (also fine), so the need for an OT just isn't there, this year.

Other likely possibilities for early picks include DT and TE, so if I were to prioritise their needs (not easy to do before the season-end shakeup), it would be:
Edge, WR (greatest needs), then TE, DT, (the most likely alternatives), then CB.

Of course if Aaron Rodgers is traded, they should get picks from the Saints, or the Broncos, or the Steelers, who knows what picks they end up with.

Packers are a definite tough team to mock a pick for right now.

Changed it up for you.

Drake Jackson is on the lighter side of edge guys compared to what the Packers ideally want. They like the bigger edge guys at 265-275lbs (their current guys, Rashan Gary, Preston Smith, Zadarius Smith are all in that range), but sometimes you have to take what is there. They could go for a larger edge guy like Zach Harrison or Travon Walker, but would that be the best value at their pick ?

I'd probably take a chance on Zach Harrison, 6'6", 268 is an attractive size for that position, but there is nothing wrong with your choice.  He is more Landry than Davenport (both prospects in the 2018 draft), but look how Landry is doing now.

Jackson's played at 270 before.

I wouldn't argue with OL for the Bengals, but I think their #1 need is CB.  They run a zone scheme primarily so ideally someone who excels at that.  They may look at S in the first couple days if they are dumb and don't get Jessie Bates extended.

Where as i like Mailk Willis more than any other QB in this draft coming out im still not taking a QB this year for the Falcons and think it is dumb to do so wasting his next 2 or so years of his contract while we still can't move on from ryans' contract.   2023 is the soonest we should even consider taking a QB with as many holes as we got on this roster as it sits.  We need to fill those 1st so when we do finally take  a QB in 2023 or 2024 the dude has a fair chance to actually replace and succeed.  Plus it gives you a full 5 years of rookie contract to give you alot of cap space to get back out of cap hell. 

In this situation im looking at   Stingley, Karlaftis, Linderbaum, Davis, or Leal
