The Green Bay Packers will be entering the 2014 NFL Draft in a strange situation. Their offense will be one of the best next season because of Aaron Rodgers, but Green Bay has to make up for the loss of James Jones in the draft. Here is the final edition of the Packers seven-round mock draft.

Round 1: C.J. Mosley

C.J. Mosley is being slept on so far in the pre-draft process. Mosley is perhaps the most decorated defensive player in this entire draft class, but he plays a position that doesn't have a ton of value in the draft. Teams could very well find a starting linebacker in the later rounds. The Packers could use a linebacker next to A.J. Hawk, and Mosley could be a perfect fit.

Round 2: Donte Moncrief

Round 2: Donte Moncrief

Losing James Jones to free agency will be a big blow to this offense going forward. That's why the Packers need to address the wide-receiver position in the draft. A player who is falling under the radar is Ole Miss' Donte Moncrief. The wide-receiver class is as deep as any position in this draft. Moncrief is a 6-foot-2, 220-pound receiver who has solid route-running skills and soft hands.

Round 3: Ed Reynolds

While he may be a bit small, Ed Reynolds plays with a ton of field vision and instincts. Reynolds was a leader of one of the best college football defenses and he is coming from a good pedigree. Reynolds has some injury history, but the Packers need to add a playmaker in the back end and Reynolds fits the bill.

Round 3 (Compensatory): Stanley Jean-Baptiste

Round 3 (Compensatory): Stanley Jean-Baptiste

Stanley Jean-Baptiste is one of the most raw prospects in this draft, but cornerbacks in today's NFL are thriving off length and height. Those are two things that are intangibles and Jean-Baptiste has both of them. At 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, Jean-Baptiste has the height to be a unique player in the NFL. The Packers could very well add a playmaker at cornerback like Jean-Baptiste.

Round 4: Travis Swanson

With Evan Dietrich-Smith leaving in free agency, this opens up a big hole at the center position. Like the middle-linebacker position, the center position doesn't hold a ton of value in the draft. Travis Swanson is one of the best centers in the draft and he could fit right into the offensive line. Swanson is a mauler and his calling card is in the running game.

Round 5: Arthur Lynch

Jermichael Finley will most likely not be coming back to Green Bay in 2014. That being said, Andrew Quarless is in position right now to be the starter. While Quarless does have a ton of potential, he lacks the ability in the running game to be an every-down tight end. Arthur Lynch out of Georgia can catch the ball and block in the running game. His skill would be of great use in Green Bay.

Round 5 (Compensatory): Aaron Lynch

Round 5 (Compensatory): Aaron Lynch

Aaron Lynch has the ability and potential to be a stud pass-rusher in the NFL. He needs to put on weight, but he has the athleticism and the explosiveness to be a 15-sack type of guy every season. Lynch is a tweener, but the Packers have Julius Peppers to help Lynch and groom him. Lynch will have to ease into the NFL before he makes a big impact.

Round 6: Casey Pachall

As Packer fans saw in 2013, when Rodgers goes down, the quarterback play behind him is pretty bad. Green Bay had to start the likes of Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn. Clearly, those two are not in the long-term plans and it may be a good idea to draft a quarterback. Casey Pachall fell out of flavor at TCU, but he has a rocket for an arm.

Round 7: Dontae Johnson

The Packers continue the trend of drafting a tall cornerback by drafting Dontae Johnson out of N.C. State. The 6-foot-2 cornerback would be a nice target in the seventh round if he falls this far. Playing in the ACC, Johnson played against good competition and he would be a nice rotational cornerback in Green Bay.
