The Green Bay Packers are currently scheduled to make six draft picks during Day 3 of the 2022 NFL draft. Brian Gutekunst has two fourth-round picks, one fifth-round pick and three seventh-round picks.

We’ll update this as the Packers make picks on Saturday. Here’s what the Packers are getting in each Day 3 selection.

WR Romeo Doubs: Deep threat

Doubs, who caught 12 passes thrown over 20 yards in the air last season, ran 4.47 in the 40-yard dash at 204 pounds. He’s not blazing fast on the stopwatch, but the Packers think he has elite play speed, and the tape backs it up. Doubs was consistently getting behind the coverage and providing easy deep throws for quarterback Carson Strong. Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus called Doubs a “real-deal deep threat.” He wins at the line, accelerates instantly and knows how to stack corners during the route to win one-on-one. The Packers need a vertical threat after losing Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Doubs could easily slide into the role in Matt LaFleur’s offense. Early on, Doubs may give the Packers value as a punt returner. He returned 39 punts, averaged 11.9 yards per return and returned one for a touchdown at Nevada.

OL Zach Tom: Elite athleticism, versatility

Tom might possess the best combination of athleticism and versatility in the draft class, making him a classic Day 3 pick for the Packers along the offensive line. He played left tackle and center at Wake Forest and then blew up the combine. Consider this: Tom’s Relative Athletic Score (RAS) is 9.59 at offensive tackle, 9.92 at guard and 10.0 at center. Where do you want him to play? Doesn’t really matter. He’s an elite athlete at every spot along the offensive line. And he can mirror in pass protection from the edge and inside. Even if Tom isn’t a future starter, he’s going to be highly valuable backup at just about every spot up front. More than likely, he’ll emerge as the next Day 3 offensive line pick to become a starter for the Packers.
