Polar Vortex Mock Draft

I know mocks are for fun and speculation. Taylor is my guy though, I gotta have his back! xD

No problem. If I had to mock what I think that the Packers would do it would be a lot different. I usually do my mocks outside of the box a little.

I will stick with my mock from 2 months ago before the Senior Bowl and Combine. I even mocked Ingold back then.

Probably my favorite mock so far. I'm not as big on Risner as many here though.

I was just trying to make all of the millennials on this board run to google to find the answer. I won’t ever bring up Rich Campbell or David Whitehurst here (yes, there were quarterbacks before Favre)

Campbell and Whitehurst??  Egad.  I remember those 2 guys.  Nightmare city.  lol

One of my all-time favorite players. I've always loved the guys who could get to the QB and that was Ezra's deal. He could rush the passer. 

Mentioning Ezra reminds me of a story my hubby loves to tell.  When Ezra played for us hubby was in a bank in GB waiting in line.  All of a sudden the tellers got all excited looking in his direction.  He turned around and there was a mountain of a man towering behind him (hubby is only 5'9" so he knew it wasn't him causing the tellers to gawk)!

WR corps weak and the Cole Madison pipe dream was entertaining. Not bad overall though.

Very well done!  I like the thinking outside the box, well done.  Judging mocks like we all should, if this was the real offseason and draft would we be happy or not, I would be happy.  Love the Risner and Lindstrom picks with TJ, all three will help the running game.  Nice job!

Who the **** is Alphonso Carreker and what does he have to do with anybody in this draft class?

Whenever I read your responses to people’s mocks, I picture you pacing around, distressed about the stupidity of the common football fan, and eventually throwing your laptop or phone when the original poster doesn’t agree with you. By chance is that something you do?

I am not the hero that the Packers forum needs.  But I am the hero that the Packers forum deserves.

Is that pic a thing? I just googled "bad superhero" and scrolled down a little.  The one that I really wanted to use would have been moderated out, not that I blame the owners of the site, it was very distasteful.

My first mock draft of 2019 is intended to help improve the defense which in turn will improve the team in its return to the playoffs.

 

If you look at team rankings from 2018 the most glaring deficiencies were with the Packers running game.

*The Packers ranked 32nd in the NFL in rushing attempts with 20.8 attempts per game. The Rams were 4th (29.6 per game)  Titans were 9th (28.5 per game)

*The Packers averaged 104.2 yards rushing per game (22nd in NFL), Rams averaged 143 yards per game (3rd NFL), Titans averaged 126 yards per game (6th NFL)

*The packers averaged 4.5 punt attempts per game while the Rams punted only 2.7 times per game (least in the NFL)

 

Conclusion is that the Packer defense can be greatly improved by improving the offense by improving the running game.

 

Retained Players: 

Allison, Graham, Bulaga, Wilkerson, Matthews, Breeland

 

Not Retained Players:

Cobb, Perry, Kendricks, Lewis

 

Free Agent Signings:

*DONE* Za'Darius Smith- Edge Ravens   Connection with Milt Hendrickson the Packers will make him the off season priority signing

*CHANGE TO ADRIAN AMOS* Earl Thomas- Safety Seahawks  He will be brought in for team leadership that has been missing on the defensive side of the ball

*ADD PRESTON SMITH*

Draft

*Trade*  The Raiders are looking to move up for either Drew Locke or Daniel Jones.  Packers trade pick 12 to the Raiders in exchange for picks 27 and 35. (1200 points for 1230 points according to the trade value chart)

#27  TJ Hockenson, TE, Iowa    Best tight end in draft.  Will improve run blocking while being a great receiving target.

#30 Dalton Risner, OG, Kansas   Starts at right guard but moves to right tackle to replace Bulaga in year 2.

#35 Chris Lindstrom, OG, Boston College   Starts at left guard for the next 10 years

#44 Jaylon Ferguson, Edge, Louisiana Tech

*Trade*  The Packers trade picks 76 and 111 to the Patriots for pick 63 (276 points for 282 points trade value chart)

#63 Rock Ya-Sin, CB/S, Temple

#109 Anthony Nelson, DE, Iowa

#140 Andrew Van Ginkle, OLB, Wisconsin  Special teams stalwart 

#172 Alec Ingold, FB/HB, Wisconsin  Great lead blocker and good receiver.  Green Bay native.  Google his Senior Bowl block.

#182 Xavier Crawford, CB, Central Michigan University  Practice squad candidate.

#204 James Williams, RB, Washington State University   Very good college receiving back

 

2019 Roster

Offense

QB(3) Rodgers, Boyle, Kizer (yes I have Boyle ahead of Kizer)

RB(4) Jones, Williams,  James Williams, Ingold (FB/ H-BACK)

WR(6)  Adams, Allison, MVS, ESB, Kumerow, Moore

TE(3) Hockerson, Graham, Tonyan (Ingold will be additional blocking TE)

OL(9)  Bakhtari, Lindstrom, Linsley, Risner, Bulaga start from left to right  Backups:  Spriggs, Light, Siragusa, and Cole Madison returns from year away and works to develop into RG or RT for 2020.

Defense

DL(6)  Daniels, Clark, Wilkerson, Lowry, Lancaster, Nelson

Edge(5) Smith, Matthews, Ferguson, Fackrell, Van Ginkle

LB(4) Martinez, Morrison, Burks, Crawford

CB(6) Breeland, King, Alexander, Jackson, Brown, Jamerson

S(4) Thomas, Ya-Sin, Jones, Campbell

Special Teams

K(1)  Crosby

P(1)  Scott

LS(1)  Bradley

 

I know that I will be highly criticized for drafting offense with the first 3 picks, but if we get our running game fixed, we will also improve our time of possession on offense and will be much less reliant on our defense to win games.  

If we can also reduce our average number of times per game punting the football by even one per game, that would be great too.  I feel that the new coaching staff will be more aggressive on offense and NOT punt on 4th and 2 in plus territory as much as MM did.  

Sorry for no graphics or pictures.

 

 

 

 

 

A great start for my mock!
