Green Bay Packers depth chart predictions following 2016 NFL Draft

Murphy joins second round pick Jason Spriggs of IN as offensive line insurance for this year and beyond.

Fittingly, that man was 6-foot-7, 301-pound left tackle Kyle Murphy, who was taken in the sixth round.

Todd McShay's best draft pick for the Packers is Stanford ILB Blake Martinez: "This is more about the big picture".

Together, Murphy and the three other linemen drafted weigh more than 1,200 pounds.

Many of these draft picks attended top-notch collegiate institutions like Stanford, Northwestern, and Cal. It seems that the Packers wanted to go after high-intellect guys that can help offset some of the problems the team experience previous year.

Rob Demovsky shares some good insights on each of the Packers' picks, including the decision in the first round to draft UCLA DT Kenny Clark: "This pick probably wouldn't have been necessary had B.J. Raji not surprised the Packers by his decision to walk away from football".

Still, Martinez's father wasn't convinced.

"Clay prefers to play outside", Wolf said.

His mother had other ideas. "And obviously it was just a lucky guess type of thing, but it's just amusing".

"She was always telling me throughout the process, she was like, 'I believe you're going to end up at the Packers, '" Martinez said.

Green Bay Packers chose Kyler Fackrell, OLB, in Round 3 from Utah.

In the fifth round, the Packers drafted 6-2 receiver Trevor Davis, who the Packers clocked as having run the 40-yard dash at about 4.3 seconds. Green Bay runs a 3-4 defense under Dom Capers and majorly struggled to stop the run past year; Lowry is part of a major overhaul in the front seven, and should get an opportunity to earn playing time early in his career given the Packers' relative lack of depth there.
