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 …

Lewis Cine, S, Georgia

Height/Weight: 6-2, 199

Key stats: Led the Georgia defense in tackles (73) and pass breakups (nine) in 2021, his second season as a full-time starter. Had just two career interceptions.

College honors: Named third-team All-America and first-team All-Southeastern Conference by the Associated Press, and was chosen as defensive MVP of the national championship game.

Background/other info: Cine cracked the starting lineup for the Bulldogs for the final two games of the 2019 season and never looked back, eventually becoming a speedy, athletic backstop on the nation's top defense. The Texas native developed a reputation as an aggressive, hard hitter in the box, and he displayed versatility in coverage by playing both centerfield and in the slot. The early read from scouts is he'll be better suited close to the line of scrimmage at first in the NFL, but his 4.37 clocking in the 40 at the combine shows that range in the back end should develop over time. He intercepted just two passes in his career, but led Georgia's defense with nine pass breakups last season to go with a team-best 73 total tackles. He finished his career with a strong showing vs. Alabama in the national title game, with a tackle for loss among seven stops, and declared for the draft a year early.
