Many Green Bay Packers fans expected the Green Bay Packers to take a wide receiver in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. However, of the six wide receivers they gave first round grades to, none remained when it came time for their selections. As a result, the Packers took linebacker Quay Walker with the 22nd overall pick. With the 28th overall pick, they took Devonte Wyatt, a defensive tackle, also from Georgia.

With the two picks used on defense, the Packers have continued their trend of drafting defense in the first round. Fans may recall that the last time the Packers had two first round picks, they used them on Rashan Gary and Darnell Savage.
Green Bay will look to also continue their trend of hitting home runs at wide receiver in the second round of the draft tomorrow, or they won’t.
