Packers draft kicker of the future in final day

The Green Bay Packers addressed their depth on the final day of the NFL Draft but potentially answered one of the biggest questions heading into the 2023 season with their selection in the sixth round.


The Packers drafted Auburn kicker Anders Carlson with their sixth-round pick, which was a similar position in the draft that they selected Mason Crosby 16 years ago. The selection may be the end of the road for Crosby in Green Bay, who despite his reliability may carry a price tag the Packers do not want to pay with tens of millions of dead cap space hampering their moves.

Round 1 | Pick 13 (from NYJ)
Lukas Van Ness, DE, Iowa
