Clemson CB Andrew Booth Jr.

Packers.com has consulted more than two dozen mock drafts from reputable national outlets and compiled a list of players most frequently mocked as draft selections in the bottom half of the first round (picks 16-32) who would fit Green Bay's potential roster needs.

Between now and draft day, when the Packers own the No. 22 and 28 overall selections in the first round, those players will be profiled with thumbnail sketches and videos known as "Prospect Primers."

Today's player is …

Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson

Height/Weight: 6-0, 194

Key stats: Played in 35 games, with 15 starts, over three years and recorded five interceptions over the past two seasons.

College honors: Named first-team All-ACC by multiple outlets in 2021 (after second-team honors in 2020) and was a finalist for the Blanchard-Rogers Trophy, given to the top college player either in or from the state of South Carolina.

Background/other info: A long-armed corner entering the NFL Draft a year early, Booth closed his college career with three interceptions in his last three games. He had five interceptions and 10 additional pass breakups over the 2020-21 campaigns, along with 5½ tackles for loss. Booth became a part-time starter in 2020 and then the full-time guy last season, pairing with Mario Goodrich to take both of the first-team spots at cornerback in the All-ACC selections. He's viewed as capable in both press and zone coverages with plenty of growth ahead after starting just 15 games in college. Booth did not participate in drills at the scouting combine due to a hamstring injury, and then he did not test at Clemson's pro day, telling reporters he was having core muscle surgery. That could push him down some draft boards, but he's still considered a first-round prospect and the top one coming from Clemson's program this year.
