2020 NFL Draft:

#30.  Packer trade down with Falcons.  Packers get picks #47 and #78 for #30.

#47.  Ashtyn Davis NFL

Scouting Report: Ashtyn Davis

School: Cal Position: Safety Class: Senior Height: 6’1″ Weight: 200 

Scouting Report:

Versatile defensive back that has moved all over the secondary. Is a gifted athlete with excellent speed, allowing him to cover the fastest of wide receivers. Will play a significant role on special teams, as his speed and fiery competitiveness and good tackling skills should place him in all phases of kick coverage. Works best in coverage, particularly zone. Understands the game and would thrive in a system that puts a lot of read and react on the shoulders of their defensive backs. Has shown some promise in the box, both in the run game and with blitzes, but that is not where he will make his living.

#62.  Lynn Bowden Jr. NFL

Scouting Report: Lynn Bowden Jr.

School: Kentucky Position: Wide Receiver Class: Junior Height: 6’1″ Weight: 200 

Scouting Report:

One of the most versatile offensive weapons in college football, Bowden has experience at receiver, quarterback and in the kicking game. Is extremely dangerous in the open field and can be moved all over the field in a creative offense. As a receiver, runs smooth, fluid routes. Gets out of breaks quickly and has an excellent burst after breaks, allowing him to easily get separation. Top end speed is also excellent. Is a natural catcher and thrower of the ball.

#78.  Tyler Biadasz NFL

Scouting Report: Tyler Biadasz

School: Wisconsin Position: Center Class: Junior Height: 6-3 Weight: 325 

Scouting Report:

Extremely powerful, smash-mouth type center that doesn’t need the extra help from other offensive linemen to block top tier defensive linemen. Excels with a combination of power and balance. Works best in close quarters where his lack of arm length could get him into problems, but shouldn’t hinder him at center in most blocking schemes. Able to road grade in the run game, and has the footwork to hold up to recover, even when caught off balance in pass protection.

#94.  Jacob Phillips NFL

Scouting Report: Jacob Phillips

School: LSU Position: Inside Linebacker Class: Junior Height: 6’4″ Weight: 230 

Scouting Report:

Smart, well coached inside linebacker that can quarterback a defense and make plays all over the field. Very much in the mold of today’s NFL linebackers that need to be able to be quick and rangy, but also still hold up against the run as well as cover. Plays in a complex defense that expects their inside linebackers to cover, blitz, and play the run. With limited experience, looks very natural as the leader out on the field, and is patient and doesn’t over-react to plays. Stock could sky-rocket with more playing time.

#133.  

Shane Lemieux NFL

Scouting Report: Shane Lemieux

School: Oregon Position: Offensive Guard Class: Junior Height: 6’4″ Weight: 316 

Scouting Report:

Perhaps the best interior lineman in terms of small space, moving forward run blocking. Absolute beast as a road grader with elite upper body strength. Explodes of the snap, locking onto a defender and moving defenders back like a sled drill. Has some decent agility and lateral movement that can be developed over time. Able to lock down defenders in pass pro, but works best when moving forward and with a lesser range to be responsible for. Will be prized by teams looking to develop a power run game which is a popular component of NFL offenses right now.

#175.  Jacob Breeland NFL

Scouting Report: Jacob Breeland

School: Oregon Position: Tight End Class: Junior Height: 6’5″ Weight: 241 

Scouting Report:

A unique tight end prospect that projects almost as a take the top off of the defense vertical receiver. Could be drafted as a wide receiver, as there is not much in his game that applies to the tight end position. Best when used downfield and to keep defenses honest. A natural catcher of the long ball. Not effective as a run blocker or as a blocker in the passing game. Short to mid routes don’t show much separation. An interesting prospect that will need to find the right system to thrive.

#192.  Jared Hilbers RT  Washington

Walter's Football scouting report.  Solid RT that is better at run blocking then pass.   Potential to develop into solid NFL player.

#209.    Nate Stanley NFL

Scouting Report: Nate Stanley

School: Iowa Position: Quarterback Class: Senior Height: 6-4 Weight: 240 lbs 

Scouting Report:

A prototypical pro-style QB with size and arm strength that get NFL scouts attention. Has nice ball velocity and has shown the ability to throw all of the “NFL Throws”. Has nice pocket presence, and has a nice shuffle move to avoid pressure. Doesn’t panic and bailout when the pocket breaks down, which is difficult to teach.

#224.  Mitchell Wilcox NFL

Scouting Report: Mitchell Wilcox

School: South Florida Position: Tight End Class: Senior Height: 6’5″ Weight: 245 

Scouting Report:

Thrives in the slot and able to find openings in the defense. A smooth route runner that gets separation from defenders easily in the open field. A pure receiving tight end at this point, that doesn’t have the mid and lower body strength to be an effective inline blocker, or a blocker in space. In the right offense, can be moved around all over the offense as a receiver. Not afraid of contact, but will need to work on his concentration when catching the ball in stride and continuing the play.

#241.  Calvin Throckmorton NFL

Scouting Report: Calvin Throckmorton

School: Oregon Position: Offensive Guard/Tackle Class: Senior Height: 6-5 Weight: 318 

Scouting Report:

Projects as a guard at the next level; a raw but talented prospect. When able to get set early off of the snap and in good position, is a dominant run blocker. Has a long way to go in terms of fundamentals and technique, but has considerable upside if given the right coaching and time to develop. A classic college offensive lineman that needs work at the next level, but that could be a bargain late in the draft if given a year or two to develop.

#242.  

Cohl Cabral NFL

Scouting Report: Cohl Cabral

School: Arizona State Position: Center/Tackle Class: Senior Height: 6’5″ Weight: 291 Projected Draft Round: 3-5

Scouting Report:

Still growing into his big frame, and made a move from left tackle to center a year ago. While he adds strength to his frame has learned to use his feet and base to create excellent leverage advantages over opponents. Has long arms and can lock on to defenders and ease them out of the way to create run lanes. Best attribute is his footwork and has adapted well from kickstepping to smaller steps in the phone booth as a center. Extremely high football intelligence and is the signal caller for the offensive line.

ERFA's resign:  

95 - DL Tyler LancasterLancaster

13 - WR Allen LazardLazard

39 - CB Chandon SullivanSulliva85 - TE Robert TonyanTonyan

This **** is stupid as hell.  Linsley is the new Bulaga.  Linsley is probably the 14th best center in the world and if you say that people are like, “Lol no he isn’t,” and then you say, “Name 14 better than him,” and then they name four and then 6 more that are extremely similar to or worse than Linsley.  But let’s save 8 million dollars so we can sign Kwiatkoski because he’s quicker than Martinez even though he is the exact same speed as Martinez.

You could make the argument that you can not re-sign Bulaga and cut Linsley. You would keep Lane Taylor and play him at LG and move Elgton to C, and then draft a RT/keep Veldheer.

But why? This isn't a rebuilding year. We made the NFCCG and are (hopefully) going to be one of the favourites next year in the NFC. If you get rid of all these guys you cant just take dudes in the 3rd, 4th and 7th and hope they work out.

I don't get the cut Linsley at all. If we are cutting him to retain Bulaga, ok. I'd rather have an elite tackle than an above average center. Losing BOTH would be absurd

This looks like a mock for a rebuilding team, not one trying to compete for a SB. Think this a step back for the 2020 Packers.

Not even a good mock for a rebuilding team.   I absolutely hate this scenario in ways illustrated by others and more.  It just makes me sad and not worth me explaining further why...

I'm not sure i like the idea to totally gutting the OL, but you do raise an interesting point. Is it now time to draft better run blockers instead of pass blockers?

Quickoski is faster than Black.

This would get Gute replaced by Eliot Wolf.  At least we'd get a much higher pick in next years draft.  Maybe for several drafts after that also.

I hate to pile on, but you've got at least 3 players who will be off the board well before you have them selected, plus Bowden is a MAJOR reach in the 2nd.
