Packer Dave Posted March 14, 2019 Share Posted March 14, 2019 Hello all, Was going to play a poker tournament tonight, but got caught up in all the free agency articles. Haven't done one of these for years, I won't go into free agency because I think the Packers are done except for some minor signings (ie... Lewis) This is a straight up mock and no trades and some wishful thinking. Round 1 Pick 12: Devin White LB LSU 6'0" 237, Best inside LB in draft, immediate starter and 3 down player with pro bowl potential. Also gives protection if Blake Martinez leaves in free agency next year. Round 1 Pick 30: Jeffery Simmons DL Miss St 6'4" 300, Top 10 pick that slides due to injury and background concerns, extremely talented athletically and possesses a ton of upside. Possible replacement for Mike Daniels next year. Round 2 Pick 44: Dalton Risner OL Kansas St 6'5" 312, Played right tackle, had a good week at Senior Bowl, But had trouble with Monte Sweat and the Texas Longhorns edge players. Good run blocker and would be ideal for Risner to start as a backup to Bulaga to improve his ability to handle fast edge rushers, could also start at right quard and have Billy Turner take over left guard for Lane Taylor. Also has experience at center. Round 3 Pick 75: Chauncey Gardner-Johnson FS Florida 6'0" 208, Played slot corner for the Gators, solid tackler and aggressive run defender. Round 4 Pick 114: Anthony Nelson DL Iowa 6'7" 271, Solid edge rusher, contributed to a tough defensive line for Iowa. Round 4 Pick 118: Foster Moreau TE LSU 6'4" 253, Decent week at Senior Bowl as a blocking TE, could be a Y-TE who helps in ground game and short yardage-goal line situations. Round 5 Pick 150: Brice Love RB Stanford 5'11" 213, The speedster was banged up in 2018 and defenses sold out to stop him, resulting to a down year. Sources say Love is better than smaller backs who have gone in round one, saying he is on par with Chris Johnson. L over isn't as straight line fast, but possesses more elusiveness and moves in the open field than Johnson. Love is extremely fast, tough runner and has great vision. Round 6 Pick 185: Olisaemeka Udoh OL Elon 6'5" 323, One of the most impressive players in the one-on-ones at the East-West Shrine game. Has good size for a tackle or guard, needs to work on his feet and improve his ability to handle speed rushers. Round 6 pick 194: Preston Williams WR Colorado St 6'4" 210, Started out in Tennessee before moving to Colorado St, didn't get much playing time in Tennessee, but had 96 catches for 1,345 yards and 14 TDs at Colorado St. Has some background concerns, but his WR coach at Colorado is now the Packers WR coach. Round 7 Pick 226: Kendall Blanton TE Missouri 6'6" 260, Was solid but unimpressive at the East-West Shrine game. Should be a Y blocking TE who can contribute as a reciever. Blanton goes under the radar because Albert Okwuegbunam is such a dynamic reciever, but Blanton is said to be a good reciever in his own right. Would really like to see the first 3 rounds to unfold like this as it solidifies some of the holes we may have next year as free agency comes around and can fill the holes we may have as they can step in for the people who may not have much left to give us or may be too expensive to keep, Kenny Clark's 5th year tender will be around 8.8 million, leaving the Packers with around 17 million next year. Playing around with the roster manager on Spotrac, and with cutting Lane Taylor and Jimmy Graham the Packers could have another 12.5 million. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
