I know Green Bay needs a running back. So here is my vote in the 7th round.  Travis Homer.
https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/2019-miami-hurricanes-nfl-evaluation-profile-rb-travis-homer/ar-BBW9puO

and here https://www.canesinsight.com/news/2019-nfl-draft-profile-travis-homer.6280/

He did have a fumbling issue last year but I really believe he was actually trying to hard and was behind a very poor offensive line.  He actually plays special teams already and is VERY good at it.  Good pass catcher and an excellent blocker already. And he is only a Junior.

and because GB looks hard at UM especially for late rounders and UDFA's. https://www.miamiherald.com/sports/college/acc/university-of-miami/article229554539.html

What do you alls think??

Sticking to your thread title...my fave remaining is ILB Ben Burr-Kirven

Matches a pretty big need we have.

For RBs, I'm for Devine Ozigbo or Elijah Holyfield in round 5, and Reggie Corbin in round 7.

Most underrated is Holyfield. Everyone was totally put off by his 4.78 40 in the combine (poor on his pro day as well), but he has outstanding vision, terrific strength (unsurprising as the son of Evander Holyfield), can pass block (as you might have guessed), a tank of a RB. For those that think 40 time is everything, I'll remind you that Jerry Rice ran a 4.71 40.
As for Reggie Corbin, check him out HERE https://youtu.be/bgQrqZJyAxw

The chances of any of these day 3 guys really making an impact are slim so it makes sense to swing for the fences- In other words look for upside guys.
And it makes sense to look for guys who can help with special teams.  Here are a few names.

Pollard Memphis- RB- can play RB. slot, gunner and had 7 KOR for TDs

Dillion Michell   Oregon wr- can return kicks and punts

Jeff Smith- wr  Boston College- fast, they had him in for a visit

Ballentine  washburn   corner

Olin Udoh  OT  Elon

Yosuah Nijman  OT  Va  Tech-- has a lot of tools but very raw

Watched him a lot at UW.  Very good football player, always around the ball.  Size is his issue.  If he was 250, he would have been drafted already.  Great range, at the very least he will be a ST ace. Kid was all over the field in college.

I expect the Packers to draft the BPA at each spot today, but in the end with the players they draft and sign as UDFA's they will be looking to balance out the 90 man roster.

This is what last years 90 man roster looked like, QB-4 , RB-5 , WR-11 , TE/FB-8 , OL-16 , DL-9 , EDGE-8 , ILB -8 , DB-17 , ST-4.

And this is what the roster looks like as of today, QB-3 , RB-6 , WR -9 , TE/FB -6 , OL-15 , DL-9 , EDGE -7 , ILB -3 , DB -13 , ST -4

This my give us a little hint on how the Packers board has been restacked since round 3 ended last night.

The inactivity is making for a boring Saturday morning!  Pick 150 just seems like it is so far off.

Everything is very fluid right now for every team, everyone one has a few players they would love to land. Keep an eye on pick 121, if the Titans don't love someone there and the right player falls that the Packers want, look for the Packers to trade into that spot.

 May see a trade up for a speedy get around the edge back like Justice Hill or Mike Weber with emphasis on running the ball.

If the right RB falls I would guess they will take him, I just don't believe a trade up would involve a RB. IMHO

Titans say screwed it were not waiting for Hooker to fall. Packers will need a new trade partner.

The Chargers take Dru Transquill at #130, is that the trigger on off the ball LB's. There is still a lot of talent at that position, but their still 20 picks until the Packers pick. Also some very good DB's still on the board.
