228 – S Percy Butler, Louisiana: At the end of a draft, you have to bet on something. For Butler, it’s speed. At 6 feet, he ran his 40 in 4.36 seconds. As a junior, in 2021 he had one interception, four breakups, six tackles for losses and one blocked kick. As noted by NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein, “Butler’s excellent work as a shooter adds to his daily worth and his chances of staying in the league.”
No. 249 – C Nick Ford, Utah: It’s a law that the Packers need to draft multiple linemen. Ford is Capt. Versatility. His 40 career starts were split between center (15), right guard (13), left guard (nine), right tackle (2) and left tackle (1). Versatility was also Lucas Patrick’s calling card. Ford was on the first team as a junior and senior throughout the conference, when he played mostly in the middle. He has plus athleticism at 6-foot-5 and 310 pounds.
