The Senior Bowl will be played this weekend in Mobile, Alabama. For NFL teams, they have the game and practices leading up to the game to evaluate the talent from college seniors who will be available in the upcoming draft.
So, who might the Green Bay Packers be interested in? And are there players from certain schools that the Packers brass will be focusing on?
In the 2022 Draft, the Pack selected 11 players from 10 different schools. Two players from the University of Georgia were taken by the team in the first round of the draft: defensive players Quay Walker and Devonte Wyatt.
