The Green Bay Packers have gone with four straight picks to address the offense; however, that streak will come to an end with a defensive player selected in the fifth round.
After the Packers selected two defensive players in the first round, Brian Gutekunst shifted his attention to the offense by selecting Christian Watson, Sean Rhyan, Romeo Doubs and Zach Tom with their most recent draft picks.
Now, Green Bay has ended its run with offensive players and has decided to return to defense. Originally, the Packers were slated to pick at No. 171 but they traded back with the Denver Broncos for the No. 179 and No. 234 pick.
The Packers would use pick 179 on South Carolina edge rusher Kingsley Enagbare.

Enagbare, 6-4, 265 pounds, collected many awards throughout his career at South Carolina. Most of them came in 2021 when he was named to the Third-Team All-American ProFootballFocus Team, First-Team All-SEC ProFootballFocus Team and the 2021 Second-Team All-SEC from The Athletic.
In his career, he collected 121 tackles, 24 tackles for loss, 15 sacks, three force fumbles and four pass deflections. Also, Enagbare was named the 2021 South Carolina Defensive MVP and the 2021 Team MVP by his coaches and teammates.
Despite moving back, there will be 49 picks until the Packers’ next pick. This could easily change as they could trade those seventh-round picks for a sixth-round pick.
