The Packers could have some interesting options if they make a pick at No. 21 on Thursday night, including C.J. Mosley, Ryan Shazier and Calvin Pryor.

2014 NFL Draft: Packers possibilities

A look at 10 of players who could be available to the Packers at No. 21 if general manager Ted Thompson stays put and makes that selection:

1. C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama (6-foot-2, 234 pounds, 4.63 seconds in the 40-yard dash): Started 12 of 13 games last season as a senior and had 108 tackles and nine tackles for loss. … Had 107 tackles and four sacks as a junior in 2012. … Played right away as a true freshman, starting three games in 2010 and recording 67 tackles. … Agile, instinctive, competitive team-first leader who battled elbow, hip and shoulder injuries in college and could have durability problems at the next level, but still has talent to be a top first-round pick.

2. Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State (6-1 1/8, 237, 4.38):  Had 143 tackles, 22.5 tackles for loss and six sacks as a third-year junior last season. … Started three games as a true freshman before becoming a full-time starter as a sophomore in 2012, when he had 115 tackles and five sacks. ... Did not run at combine because of hamstring injury and does lack ideal size and bulk. … Led Big Ten in tackles and has explosiveness (42-inch vertical leap) and has ability to stop run and drop in coverage.

3. Calvin Pryor, S. Louisville (5-11 1/4, 207, 4.62):  Started all 12 games as a third-year junior last season had had 75 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, 10 pass breakups and three interceptions. … Had 100 tackles, nine pass breakups and two INTs as a sophomore min 2012. … Became a starter as a true freshman in 2011, starting seven games and intercepting a pair of passes. ... Confident, athletic player with ability to come up in run support and play deep in centerfield. … Hard hitter who was not asked to do much in man coverage but should be an immediate starter at safety in the NFL.

4. Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama (6-1 3/8, 208, 4.62): Played in 11 games (nine starts) as a third-year junior last season and had 52 tackles, six pass breakups and two interceptions. … Played in 14 games as a sophomore in 2012 and had 37 tackles, nine pass breakups and a career-best five INTs. … Was not a starter as a true freshman, but did see action in 13 games. … Full name is Ha’Sean. … Solid tackler with good size and the ability to cover in the slot. … Did not make as many plays on the ball as scouts would prefer. … Was not a big playmaker but does have talent and instincts to start as a rookie.

5. Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota  (6-5 7/8, 310, 5.00):  Had 38 tackles, including 13 for loss and two sacks, last season as a fifth-year senior. … Looks the part with impressive size, length and athleticism. … High-school tight end who moved to defensive end as a redshirt freshman in 2009. … Was team MVP last season. 

6. Demarcus Lawrence, DE, Boise State (6-2 7/8, 251, 4.83):  Had 72 tackles, including 20.5 for loss and 10.5 sacks, last season as a fourth-year junior. … Spent two years at Butler (Kan.) Community College before going to Boise State. … Fluid athlete with very good pass-rush ability. … Could play end in 4-3 or outside linebacker in a 3-4 as a pass-rusher.

7. Marqise Lee, USC (5-11 3/4, 192, 4.46):  Caught 57 passes for 791 yards and four TDs last season as a junior, when the Trojans struggled through quarterback problems and he struggled with injuries. …. Had 118 receptions for 1,721 yards and 14 TDs as a sophomore while playing with Matt Barkley, a fourth-round pick by Philadelphia a year ago. … Missed time with leg, knee and shoulder injuries as a junior but looked every bit the part of an NFL No. 1 receiver as a sophomore. … Should be an NFL playmaker if he can stay healthy.

8. Odell Beckham, LSU (5-11 1/4, 198, 4.40):  Caught 59 passes for 1,152 yards and eight TDs last season as a junior. … Had 43 receptions for 713 yards and two TDs as a sophomore and 41 receptions for 475 yards and two TDs as a true freshman. … Has good but not great speed, although shows very good burst/acceleration. … Must improve his route-running and catch the ball more consistently.

9. Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech (5-11 3/4, 190, 4.43):  Three-year starter after spending 2010 at Santa Rosa (Calif.) Junior College. … Had 39 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 16 pass breakups and two interceptions in 11 games as a senior last season. … Had 63 tackles, 22 pass breakups and six INTs as a junior in 2012. ... Instinctive, tough team leader who must improve strength (12 reps of 225 pounds at the scouting combine) and must improve in man coverage but a solid player who can contribute right away.

10. Eric Ebron, North Carolina (6-foot-4 3/8, 250 pounds, 4.58 seconds in the 40-yard dash): Caught 62 passes for 973 yards and three touchdowns last season as a junior. … Phenomenal athlete who is a matchup nightmare for defenses. … Has room to improve as a blocker. … Still has plenty of room to grow as a player. … Likely to be gone before Packers go on the clock.
