The Green Bay Packers have used their No. 116 pick in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft to take Auburn defensive lineman Colby Wooden.
The Packers are continuing to build their defense through the draft. Last year saw them spend their two first-round picks on defensive players linebacker Quay Walker and defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt who were fresh off of a national championship victory at Georgia.

After coming up short in the NFC championship game in back-to-back seasons, 2021 and 2022, Green Bay missed the playoffs in 2023. It was the first time the Packers missed the playoffs since 2018. This sparked another round of franchise-altering changes for the Packers as they have now parted ways with Rodgers and have given Jordan Love the keys to the franchise.
