Naturally, the draft "grades" process is one that requires numerous caveats; after all, the draft itself is an inexact science, not to mention the science of evaluating how teams did before the players even try on a jersey.

Several news outlets liked what the Packers did over the weekend, but with the backdrop of a troubled relationship between the organization and quarterback Aaron Rodgers, not everyone was so impressed. Mel Kiper, perhaps the foremost name in NFL draft evaluation, admitted it's hard to land on any evaluation without knowing what the Packers will be doing at the quarterback position.

I wrote on Thursday night that I thought Green Bay reached for Eric Stokes (29) and could have had better corners there. Same with Josh Myers (62) in the second round. He is my fourth-ranked center, and the team took him over Creed Humphrey, who I think is clearly better. All-Pro center Corey Linsley left in free agency, so this is definitely a need, but it's a reach on my board.

Now, Amari Rodgers (85) is a great slot receiver, and he's going to help whoever is playing quarterback, running all sorts of routes and getting open. Last season, Davante Adams had 82 more receptions than any other Packers wide receiver. Rodgers can gobble up targets out of the slot. This pick also guarantees at least one A. Rodgers on the team.

That Rodgers pick likely saves this class from a C, because nearly all of Green Bay's Day 3 picks went higher than I ranked them on my board. Again, though, with the uncertainty around Rodgers' situation, this is a tough team to gauge.
Cornerback was a major need for the Packers, and with receiver Rashod Bateman off the board to the Ravens, they decided to pick up the speedy and competitive Stokes with their first-round selection. Myers will be a sturdy professional in the pivot for the next few years, though it will be interesting to see how other center prospects who were available at No. 62 will work out for their teams. Rodgers was an excellent selection in Round 3 to give the team a much-needed returner and playmaker in the slot (and sometimes in the backfield).

The Packers found their right tackle in Newman, who isn’t a plus athlete but can move defenders off the ball and is reliable in pass protection. Van Lanen is another solid late-round lineman. The defensive line got a big man up front in Slaton, who was unblockable at times for the Gators when fresh. Jean-Charles should contribute in the slot and outside, always fighting through the receiver to knock away passes. McDuffie was a great value for a team needing an active inside linebacker. Hill could stick as a third back and provide real value if Aaron Jones and/or AJ Dillon get hurt.
