In The Black – Green Bay Packers 2024 Draft Profile

There was a lot to be excited about in Titletown, USA this past season. The Green Bay Packers overachieved in some eyes, reaching the Divisional Round of the playoffs. They now roll into the 2024 off-season poised to build on that success and are in  prime position to do so as they have five picks in the top-100. As of now it’s not a matter of quantity, but quality when it comes to the Packers draft.


Tyler Nubin, Safety, Minnesota

Troy Fautanu, Tackle, Washington

Kalen King, CB, Penn State


With a very young and talented roster, the Packers are in the position to improve and replace. It isn’t a bad place to be and with the wealth of picks they have, the draft is their oyster.

Green Bay has to replenish their secondary with pending free agents all over the backend, namely cornerback Keisean Nixon and Jonathan Owens. Both were good for the Pack in 2023, but have reached their ceilings for what they will be going forward. Getting younger talent in the first three to four rounds for this secondary should be a priority.

The first player they could look at is stud safety Tyler Nubin out of Minnesota. He has a rare combination of size, speed, and awareness that allows him to play either safety spot. He isn’t afraid to take on blockers in the run game and looks to strike ball carriers with force. He has the ability to transform a defense with his presence alone, and could warrant a first round grade.

Continuing with the defensive secondary, the Packers should look to get a early contributor at the cornerback position as well. A player that has had a tumble down some boards is Penn State standout Kalen King. King has the prototype build for the position with good musculature on his frame. He plays well when facing the action, showing willingness to tackle and good aggressiveness in zone coverage. He does have some questions about his consistency in man coverage, but with good coaching he could come in and be an immediate factor.

The offensive line needs to be addressed in the offseason, especially the tackle position. Drafting a versatile lineman like Troy Fautanu would give Matt LeFleur a chess piece he can plug and play instantly.

Fautanu is an agile lineman who only gave up a total of three sacks while playing a combination of left tackle and left guard. He fits well as a guard, but playing him at his natural position of left tackle may aid in his development over time. He is only 23-years old, so he will could serve as Jordan Love’s blindside protector for the next ten years.

Green Bay has a chance to reload a roster that is already stacked with young talent in a deep draft class. The fact that they have seen what the potential of the roster is as currently constructed helps ease the need to act brashly with their picks. Come April they will be able to make power moves and possibly get young pieces to ensure the future of the franchise for years to come.
