The Packers bolstered their defense with their first pick in the 2022 NFL draft.
With the 22nd overall pick, the Packers selected Georgia linebacker Quay Walker.
This was a first-round pick the Packers received from the Raiders in the Davante Adams trade, and many people expected the Packers to take a wide receiver to replace Adams. Aaron Rodgers surely would have appreciated that, but there was a run on receivers in the first half of the first round, and the Packers apparently didn’t think there was good receiver value at No. 22.
The Packers’ own first-round pick is No. 28 overall. Perhaps that’s where they’ll take a receiver.
