Mid-Season Mock-o-rama

Recommended Posts

Disclaimer: The last time I did one of these, I used our first round pick on Nate Solder. I'm bored, my wife is working a 12, and it's raining too much to do yard work. I'm ball parking all contracts and draft slots, don't stress if they're super off. Just pretend they don't even exist.

December 31, 2018 - BLACK MONDAY

Following an extremely disappointing 2018 campaign, Mike McCarthy and Mark Murphy,  GM Brian Gutekunst have their end of the year sit down. Mike asks Mark for a contract extension, as to avoid lame duck status heading into the 2019 season. Brian is uncomfortable with this, citing the fact that the Packers have regressed every year since the 2014 NFCCG and he would prefer Mike demonstrate his ability to lead a team built by himself to the playoffs. McCarthy cites that all of the blame for the recent failures of the Packers should not all be placed in his lap, as the former GM Teddy T clearly struggled to replenish this roster as necessary in his final years in the position. Mike closes his argument by stating "Let's just state the facts, I'm a highly successful NFL head coach".  After a tense and heated exchange, all parties decide it is best to part ways and seek out a fresh start.

BREAKING NEWS:

Green Bay Packers fire HC Mike McCarthy

Throughout the playoffs, Gute and Mark Murphy seek out the best and brightest candidates for the couching vacancy of the Green Bay Packers. Keeping with recent tradition, the vast majority of these candidates are named "Mike". Including Tyson, Trout and Myers. However, following the divisional round exit of the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay is granted permission to interview John Eugene DeFilippo. John's ability to scheme and create mismatches using the talent at hand to have success, instead of relying on the arm of a generational talent are too enticing to pass up for both the short-term and long-term benefit of the organization.

 

BREAKING NEWS:

Green Bay hires MIN OC DeFilippo as HC. Mike Pettine is retained as DC.

Gute enters the offseason with ~40 Mil to spend after not retaining some big names in recent Packer lore. With that, he is able to address some holes that have been neglected in recent years by his predecessor.

The Draft

The Green Bay Packers enter the 2019 draft with the following picks 1(12), 1(30), 2(44), 3(76), 4(112), 4(119), 5(161), 6(201), 6(208), 7(240)

Round 1(12)

Gute sees all of the blue chippers come off the board before he picks, and was unwilling to meet the cost of ascending into the top 8. With that being said, Gute acknowledges that we have multiple holes on this team and sees an opportunity to acquire more draft picks. Trade - Green Bay Trades their 1st Rd pick, #12 overall to TEAM X for their 1st Rd Pick, #15 overall and 4th Rd Pick, # 116 overall.

Round 1(15)

With the 15th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, The Green Bay Packers Select - Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky

Round 1(30)

With the 30th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, The Green Bay Packers Select - David Edwards, OT, Wisconsin

Round 2(44)

Gute sees the last player he has in his second tier falling and decides to make a move to swoop him up. Trade. The Green Bay Packers trade Round 2 pick 44, Round 4 pick 116 acquired from Team X, and Round 6 pick 201 to Team Y for Pick 2 38.

 

Round 2(38)

The Green Bay Packers Select - Chase Winovich, EDGE, Michigan

If Gute fires McCarthy he deserves to be fired.  McCarthy is probably one of three head coaches that could get traded for something.  If you want us to get rid of McCarthy, trade him.  That's what I think.

Really appreciate this mock. Thanks for moving around the draft board and grabbing some positions that I think will help right away. Less concerned about the actual players at this point. Well done dude

Gute can't fire McCarthy. This thing that Gute has any power or decision making or pressure he can put on him via personnel moves needs to go away

Yes.  Jon Gruden was the last one to be traded I think.

You’re right. That’s a mistake on my part. Corrected

The Packers received a 2nd round pick when Holmgren flew the coop for the Seahawks with one year remaining on his deal.  The Packers were also looking at having to give up draft pick compensation if they would have tried to sign John Schneider away from Seattle.  If the Browns or whoever else come calling for McCarthy the Packers could wind up with another solid draft choice since he's still got time on his deal.

If the brass decide to part ways with Mac, Gute should at least try to get a pick for him.

I like the FA signings of James and Golden.  

Give me Tonyan over Kumerow.  Keep the TE around over the 7th WR.

The #1 Priority  is upgrading the pass rush, I think this mock does a good job of that from the EDGE. Have to hope Golden is health enough for the to be true though, because there needs to be some veteran talent there and Golden's sacks dropped off and hasn't come back from what I see after the ACL.

Obviously also would like Thomas on the team, but have some concerns about his ability to stay healthy too.

While I like the Jesse James TE signing, I think that is a position that also needs some developmental talent via the draft. I think that needs to come before the 6th round. But hey, you can't address every position early, so I get it when it's supplemented by Free Agency.

I think RB needs to be addressed earlier in the draft . As much as I like Jones/Williams, I don't see jones holding up all season and Williams isn't dynamic.

Maybe Tonyan keeps developing and makes a big jump next year. I wouldn't mind going with Graham, Tonyan and a late round rookie next year for our TE corps.

Excellent job with this mock.  I like your purge of players.  If your cutting Lewis and Kendricks at TE, you can afford to keep Tonyan.  Campbell hasn't even played a down yet, so to early to cut him, IMO.  Thanks for the mock.  Oh, almost forgot.  Thomas wants and will be a Cowboy.

I am not sure why Cleveland would trade for McCarthy when he is on the hot seat. Not only that, but with only 1 year on MMs deal, he could just leave Cleveland after 1 year, or retire...
