Re­assess­ing Pack­ers’ draft pick po­si­tion­ing

Packer Plus - - News - Zach Kruse Spe­cial to Packer Plus

Sun­day’s win over the New York Jets all but elim­i­nated the chances of the Green Bay Pack­ers pick­ing in­side the top 10 of the 2019 NFL draft.

Based on Mon­day night’s re­sult be­tween the Bron­cos and Raiders, the Pack­ers will go into Week 17 in pos­ses­sion of ei­ther the No. 13 over­all pick or No. 14. If the Bron­cos win, the Pack­ers will hold pick No. 13. If the Bron­cos lose, the Pack­ers will hold pick No. 14.

Here’s what we do know: Re­gard­less of what hap­pens Mon­day night and in Week 17, the Pack­ers will pick be­tween Nos. 10 and No. 16. They can’t pick any higher or any lower.

They’ll get the 10th over­all pick with a loss to the Lions and wins or ties from the Fal­cons, Pan­thers and Ben­gals (and pos­si­bly the Bron­cos, but only if they lose Mon­day night).

They also can’t fall any lower than No. 16 based on strength of sched­ule in a hy­po­thet­i­cal tie with the Browns, who are 7-7-1.

So, at sea­son’s end, the Pack­ers will hold a firstround pick be­tween Nos. 1016 and an­other from the Saints be­tween Nos. 27-32.
