  1. 2019 Draft Discussion

    https://twitter.com/valrich79/status/1118926426508382208 Sweat getting red flagged for medicals.

    As someone who isn't even like "Hock is Gronk" people are really turning Hock into Marcedes Lewis. The guy is still a good receiving weapon. A much more efficient player in college than Fant in terms of drop percentage as well. I don't even love it, but I also acknowledge it carries a great deal of realism with it, which is the point at this time in the process.

    I love when scouts say stuff that just directly contradicts the objective information we have. Calling Hakeem Butler slow, when he posted a 78th percentile 40 yard dash and even a 59th percentile 10-yard split amongst all WRs is just hilarious. Scouts can be so bad sometimes.

    I'm not sure Isabella is necessary the "small white slot guy" people think he is. I think he's more Desean Jackson than Wes Welker in terms of his role.

    Any of those three safeties would be fine with me. Have them all in that same tier in the second round.

    For player comps to make it simple: Hakeem, ideally, is a Mike Evans type. Pure X receiver. EQ is more versatile in terms of his role which makes a comp harder. In the slot, it could kind of be later career Larry Fitzgerald in terms of the role, but also his deep crossing pattern ability is something that a lot of guys will do in more vertically-oriented zone-PA systems. Obviously neither Hakeem nor EQ could be expected to be Mike Evans/Larry, but just to try and give you an idea of what it would look like in terms of role.

    We're not doing the TE value thing in this thread. We're not re-litigating it for the twelve-thousandth time.

    Yo @Arthur Penske you wanna shrink the font down to a normal size for the post?
  9. 2019 Draft Discussion

    I'm not sure I agree that they're physically kind of the same. They're certainly both longer receivers, but EQ seems more properly utilized in a "big slot" role. He's actually very smooth as a runner. I think a place he'd excel is running the type of long crossers that are used a lot in the Shanahan offense out of the slot or the backside on a boot/rollout. With Butler, I think it's more of a pure outside WR. They're built kind of similarly, but they don't play super similar.

    What do you mean?
  11. rcon14 Mock 5.0

    Staking a claim that 23 is too high but 24 is fine is a weird hill to die on.
  12. rcon14 Mock 5.0

    Also complaining about picks after round 5 always seems silly to me. We're basically complaining about UDFAs.
  13. rcon14 Mock 5.0

    At some point, GB can only roster so many DBs. They already have, by day 3 in this scenario: Amos, Thornhill, Jones, and Greene, not to mention Tramon as a potential safety. That doesn't factor in any UDFAs or potentially bringing back Pleasant. I don't think we'll see a scenario for multiple safeties in this draft unless they take a true full-hybrid guy like CGJ. Also, what do you think the strengths of this draft are? And idk what to do with people concerned about Winovich. He was productive as a pass rusher, productive as a run stopper, and he tested very well. At this point, I'm just done with the discussion.
  14. rcon14 Mock 5.0

    I'm honestly not a huge fan of Weber either, but this RB class is pretty garbage and to get one of the decent ones would probably require a fourth, which I just couldn't bump out Hill or Cashman for a RB.
  15. rcon14 Mock 5.0

    Rules are the same as the last mock. The trade value chart I'll be using is Rich Hill's, which looks at trades actually made under the new CBA. Board I'll be using can be found here about halfway down: https://forums.footballsfuture.com/topic/18210-your-packer-draft-board/?page=2 The following players go before GB's pick at 12: Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa, Ed Oliver, Quinnen Williams, Montez Sweat, Brian Burns, Andre Dillard, Dwayne Haskins, Devin White, Josh Allen, and Jonah Williams TRADE ALERT: This has been a common one for me, and I'm going to stick with it. Packers and Giants make a trade with the Giants selecting Drew Lock... GB receives: 17, 37 NYG receive: 12 GB extracts a premium due to two factors a) QB and b) Multiple teams targeting Lock. GB's extra value in this trade equates to approximately a mid 3rd rounder. 17. TE TJ Hockenson - Iowa - 6046, 251, 4.7 40, 9.21 RAS [Fits threshold 100%] I want to make it clear that I am not a massive fan of this, but given how I have the board falling (essentially a "worst-case" for GB according to my board), this is still a good consolation. Picking up extra draft picks and still adding a legitimately good prospect. Hockenson seems built for the MLF/Shanahan offense. Has enough speed to stretch the field, is fluid running routes, and his blocking is obviously something GB will like. He's TE1 pretty much instantly. 30. WR Hakeem Butler - Iowa State - 6053, 227, 4.48 40 9.78 RASS [Misses 3C by .01 seconds, otherwise 100%] A favorite of mine (I have him as WR1). Can be dominant at the catch point and his YAC ability is extremely impressive for a man of his size. Just runs through DBs and uses his strides to pull away in the open field. With GB's future at the WR position being kind of an open question (Allison last year of deal, good production from MVS/EQ for day 3 picks but still some question marks), GB fully stocks the cabinet for Rodgers. 37. S Juan Thornhill - Virginia - 6002, 205, 4.42 40, 6.86 3C, 9.75 RAS [Fits threshold 100%] Converted CB to safety, which gives him some versatility that Pettine has like to use (Pettine loves 3 safety formations). Checks all the athletic boxes GB looks for and gives us a safety to pair with Amos from day one. 44. EDGE Chase Winovich - Michigan - 6034, 253, 4.59 40, 6.94 3C, 8.52 RAS [Fits threshold 100%] Highly productive and athletic EDGE defender. Here are his Waldo scores as well (in percentile, per usual): Power: 29th S40: 97th S10: 89th Agility: 93rd Twitch: 91st Guys like this are usually really good. Also, the concern about him in the run game... Just for the haters, Winovich had the 2nd best run stop % for all EDGE in this class behind only... Montez Sweat. Winovich is EDGE 3 and is used a lot on third downs as ZDS kicks inside to 3T. 75. OL Elgton Jenkins - Mississippi State - 6044, 310, 4.62 SS, 7.77 3C, 9.21 RAS at C, 9.35 at OG, 7.82 at OT [Misses 3C by .02, otherwise 100%] Elgton has experience at multiple OL positions, which fits perfectly into what GB has traditionally looked for. He predominantly RT or C in college, and could be a long-term solution at either guard spot or maybe RT depending on what GB wants to do with both Jason Spriggs and Billy Turner. The character concern about his "simple assault" arrest is actually a weird situation in which apparently there was a snowball fight (???) and then two of his teammates injured a guy with a snowball... idk, it is a very odd case and not something I'm remotely concerned about from a character perspective. There is a chance that in 2019 Elgton takes the LG job from Lane Taylor (or Billy Turner plays LG, Elgton RG), and then the 2020 plans depend on a) Bulaga b) Spriggs c) Turner and then d) Jenkins. 114. DL Trysten Hill - UCF - 6026, 308, 5.04 40, 4.38 SS, 7.7 3C 8.98 RAS [Fits thresholds 100%] An athletic potential heir to Mike Daniels. Comes in actually pretty similar in terms of scouting report. A thickly built, quite athletic IDL who has an obnoxiously high motor. Will probably make some impact plays in spot snaps in year one before potentially becoming the starting 3T in year two depending on what GB does with Mike Daniels. 118. LB Blake Cashman - Minnesota - 6011, 237, 4.51 40, 4.12 SS, 6.95 3C, 9.5 RAS [Fits thresholds 100%] Very athletic and very productive LB. Has sideline-to-sideline speed, athleticism to cover RBs and TEs, and is a reliable tackler. Outstanding blitzer, which will be well-utilized in a Pettine system. Downside here is he has T-Rex arms, but the stout front should keep him relatively clean so he shouldn't have to work off OL as much as typical LB would. Long-term Martinez replacement or complement depending on how 2019 goes. 150. CB Ken Webster - Ole Miss - 5107, 203, 4.43 40, 4.14 SS, 6.85 3C, 9.81 RAS [Fits thresholds 100%] This is 100% a developmental project. Guy tested phenomenally well, even after a devastating knee injury in 2016. He has no idea what he's doing in man coverage from a technique perspective. He's highly competitive with good tackling prowess and he's willing to get into the muck. You're betting on a guy with great athleticism and a lot of "want" figuring out the technique portion with NFL coaching. Only has to be CB5 in year one, largely playing ST. 185. TE Foster Moreau - LSU - 6041, 253, 4.66 40, 4.11 SS, 7.16 3C, 9.48 RAS [Fits threshold 100%] Moreau tested as a plus athlete, but likely won't be used in any type of flex-role in the NFL. However, it is possible he is used as an H-back/TE2 hybrid as his solid fluidity and well-rounded game make him a potential + in that role. 194. RB Mike Weber - Ohio State - 5095, 211, 4.47 40, 7.34 3C, 7.05 RAS [Slow 3C] Productive pre-injury, and then was fazed into a rotational role. Not a dynamic athlete, especially in terms of "make them miss" ability, but has shown the ability to catch the football and carve out a role as part of a rotation. 226. QB Gardner Minshew - Washington State - 6007, 225, 4.95 40, 4.45 SS, 7.14 3C, 5.91 RAS [Fits exactly zero of the thresholds] 100% off threshold. Doesn't hit a thing. Too short, too slow, not quick enough. However, Minshew has a trillion reps throwing the ball, which I really value. He's never going to be a starting caliber QB in the NFL, but I think he'd be quite serviceable as a backup. Plus-plus locker room guy. And there you have it. Barring anything coming up where I'd see a need to change strategy, this will likely be it for 2019. Thanks for reading and thanks for the discussions!
