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 middle portion of the first round (picks 10-20) who could fit Green Bay's potential roster needs.
Between now and draft day, when the Packers own the No. 15 overall selection in the first round, those players will be profiled with thumbnail sketches and videos known as "Prospect Primers."
Today's player is …
Broderick Jones, OL, Georgia
Height/Weight: 6-5, 311
Key stats: Started all 15 games at LT in 2022, giving him 19 collegiate starts overall.
College honors: Named to the All-SEC freshman team in 2021 and then first-team All-SEC in 2022.
Background/other info: Georgia native committed early to his home-state school as a highly touted recruit, played sparingly in a redshirt year in 2020, and then filled in as the starting LT in 2021 for four games when the upperclassman ahead of him got injured. In that small sample size, was already touted as a potential first-round draft pick, and then was a full-time starter in 2022 for the first time, helping Georgia win a second straight national title. Shows raw strength and power, as well as athletic gifts displayed as a basketball player in high school. Can move plenty fast for a big man (4.97 in the 40 at 300-plus pounds). Has plenty of polishing to do technique-wise, to be expected for a player with only 19 college starts.
