Would Dylan Horton Fit on the Packers?
Horton is an intriguing prospect for the Packers. Green Bay could use some depth on the offensive line, especially at the edge position. Rashan Gary will miss the first part of next season recovering from an ACL injury. Kingsley Enagbare, a fifth-round rookie this year, has looked great but they will need more depth at the position. GM Brian Gutekunst could try to catch lightning in a bottle twice and take a fifth-round edge rusher and hope he can produce quickly.

Horton seems like the kind of prospect that Gutekunst would try and get on day 3. A high-upside player whose weaknesses can be fixed with good coaching tends to work out for the Packers. Green Bay has stability in the organization and players often overperform because of the environment they are in. If Horton is still on the board going into day 3, look out for the Packers.
