How NFL.com analysts are projecting the first-round picks for the Green Bay Packers in the 2013 NFL Draft:


Matt "Money" Smith

No. 26: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford

I'm moving Ertz up. The more I look at it, the more I like Ertz as the first tight end off the board, especially for Green Bay, a no nonsense team. It's not a dig against Eifert; it's just that Ertz does more. Sure they brought back Finley, but that's a one-year deal.

Charles Davis

No. 26: Justin Pugh, OT, Syracuse

The Packers are looking to upgrade both lines, and the versatile Pugh can play both OT and OG.

Daniel Jeremiah

No. 26: John Cyprien, FS, Florida International

Cyprien is one of my favorite players in the draft. He is physical, instinctive and productive. Most evaluators have him going in the second round, but he could sneak his way into the bottom of the first.

Bucky Brooks

No. 26: Eric Reid, FS, LSU

Reid's stock has been on the rise since he impressed coaches and scouts with his athleticism and movement skills at LSU's Pro Day a few weeks ago. GM Ted Thompson could nab a Pro Bowl-caliber safety with the potential to make an immediate impact in the middle of the secondary.

Akbar Gbajabiamila

No. 26: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama

The Packers haven't drafted a running back in the first round since 1990, when they drafted Minnesota's Darrell Thompson. Lacy would be the perfect addition to the Packers' RB crew.

Gil Brandt

No. 26: Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin

Here's the thing about Ball: He played for four years at Wisconsin, carrying the ball a lot, and had no serious injuries at all. That's a real plus. Many dismiss him as a straight-line guy, but while he's no Tony Dorsett, he has better moves than you think. He's also quick, running well at Wisconsin's Pro Day. Ultimately, Ball is a big back who will block and can catch the football.

Charley Casserly

No. 26: Matt Elam, FS, Florida

The Packers decide to take a running back later.

Josh Norris

No. 26: D.J. Swearinger, SS, South Carolina

The Packers are always tough to peg, but Swearinger would bring an edge to this secondary (which is losing a physical presence on the field in Charles Woodson).
