187. Green Bay Packers: WR Javon Wims, Georgia
Even after picking Dante Pettis in the third round of our mock, the Packers could stand to add another receiver for depth purposes. Randall Cobb may not be long for the team, and with the departure of Jordy Nelson, another outside receiver would be a good move.
Javon Wims was the top receiver for Jake Fromm at Georgia this past season, and the 6-foot-3 target fared well. Wims looks like a solid outside receiver for the next level, and he could develop into a starter. At the very least, he is going to be a solid depth player with size who could make an impact in the red zone. Aaron Rodgers would certainly welcome another red zone weapon to his receiving corps.
188. Cincinnati Bengals: DT Kendrick Norton, Miami
Former Redskins defensive tackle Chris Baker inked a deal with the Bengals this offseason and he will have a chance to win a starting job next to Geno Atkins. The Bengals don’t have a lot of depth at the position and though Ryan Glasgow played well last year, they could add another big body. Kendrick Norton would qualify and he was a solid part of the Miami defense last year. Norton should be a good run defender at the next level, so he would be a nice rotational piece for the Bengals.

189. Arizona Cardinals: DT Folorunso Fatukasi, UConn
The Cardinals need some depth at the five technique position. They sorely missed Calais Campbell last season and Robert Nkemdiche has yet to live up to his first round billing. The team will likely give him one more year to prove himself, but they should add some competition for him anyway.
Folorunso Fatukasi had a great career at Connecticut, and he looks like a well-rounded defensive lineman for the NFL level. He has a 6-foot-4, 315 pound frame and he has produced as a pass rusher and a run defender. He looks like the kind of player that could be a jack of all trades in a 3-4 defense, and he could become a solid starter due to that. So, landing him here seems like a good value for the Cardinals.
190. Detroit Lions: CB Christian Campbell, Penn State
The Lions took a Penn State safety earlier in Marcus Allen. Now, they get a corner to pair with him. Christian Campbell is one of the best cornerbacks on the board, and he would provide some much needed depth behind Nevin Lawson in 2018. Campbell will have a chance to develop and is a good value at this point.
