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 …
Tyler Smith, OL, Tulsa
Height/Weight: 6-5, 324
Key stats: Started 24 career games in college, all at left tackle
College honors: Earned first-team All-American Athletic Conference selection in 2020 and second-team All-AAC honors in 2021.
Background/other info: A Texas native, Smith got his first two collegiate starts in 2019 before redshirting and becoming the full-time starter at left tackle the past two seasons. He received freshman All-America honors in 2020 from a couple of media outlets, and he just turned 21 this month, making him one of the youngest players in this draft. He's been projected to be drafted anywhere from late in the first round to late second or early third. Opinions differ on whether his best pro position will be at tackle or inside at guard, where his power as a run blocker could be featured. Smith is a massive prospect who can move (5.02 in the 40 at the combine), with a lot of raw ability to be molded and refined.
