Main theme for this was to target players in free agency that will not affect the 2022 compensatory picks that should be earned by the loss of Jones, Linsley and King.  Looking at players that have been cut or their last year contract was voided in cap saving moves.

 

2021

Salary cap set at $182.5, puts GB currently at $1.061M in cap space after the Turner restructure but not factoring in the Amos restructure per …. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/green-bay-packers/cap/

Areas of concern: 

IOL is dependent on Runyan and Patrick holding down those OG spots.  Turner shifting out to RT.   With 2 developmental OT, moving Turner back to OG if Radunz or Moore show enough in camp/preseason.

DL is still not a great group.  Rankins, Lowry, Keke and McNeill are the rotational pieces around the stud in Kenny Clark.  

CB group is light on experience behind Alexander and Butler.  Need 1 of Hollman, Jackson, Joseph or Rugamba to step up


Grabbing St Brown and Watkins looks to add some more competition for the WR room and planning for 2022 with potential departures of MVS, Lazard, EQ and Funchess.  
Ideally, Tonyan is an in season extension to secure the TE spot for a few years.

As a complete neophyte (rookie) at this mock draft stuff, but still obsessed with it all, my first take is that you've done a great job of selecting players who are very realistic choices both in terms of need and likely availability. I happen to especially favor Joseph, McNeil and Jefferson, so not only selecting them but also picking them in appropriate rounds makes good sense. Maybe the only suggestion I would offer is that I think you could still get Dillon Radunz with a bit of trade back into the second round and add a fourth round choice to boot. But he is a nice pick--farm boy strong, no nonsense personality. Nobody decides to play football in North Dakota because of the glamorous, glitzy beach life styles. Nice work!

I’m a fan of this look nice work, not sure Joseph & McNeill will be there in those spots. Pretty sure Joseph will go before pick 62 & McNeill in that area too say picks 60-80 roughly. It’ll be interesting to see where they all stack after pro days are completed. Radunz is my OT1 for us to select followed by Mayfield. I love St Brown or Amari in the 2nd both will add what’s needed to WR group. I think going Edge with one of the picks needs to be done too, push Garvin and Gary but it’s less a need now that Preston restructured, so a later round flyer.

McNeil at 135 would be a steal TBH. I really like this a lot; not so sure about WR so early when we have Funchess coming back, but ESB's brother is the better prospect and offers a different skill set than most of our WR's so obviously I can live with the pick. Little unsure of where Malcolm Butler is at this point in his career given his age, but his numbers last year were pretty good so, again, I can certainly live with it as well. Really like bringing in Rankins and keeping Williams. Williams really wants to be in Green Bay, he's improved every year, and he's not going to break the bank.

Always is hard to know where players are going to get drafted.  Rankings vary from site to site.

I think Radunz, Mayfield and Teven Jenkins are all options in that late first round range.

Extending Z and the restructure of Preston means that EDGE 1-3 are set along with Gary.    looking ahead to 2022, Z and Gary are there.   Preston could be gone or restructured depending on his play in 2021.    Probably could have used a later round pick on an EDGE.

Hard to say when player will be taken.  Rankings vary site to site.

The round 2 WR is more about 2022 vs 2021.  Only WR under contract for 2022 would be Adams (after an extension).  Funchess hasn't played in almost 2 years, and that was just 1 game, so counting on Funchess is not ideal.    St Brown doesn't fit the mold of the current GB WR, but he seems so natural running routes and catching the ball.

The FA process was to look for players that would not count against the comp pick formula for 2022.    GB likely losing Jones, Linsley and King means 3 nice comp picks for 2022.  With NFL rosters being "purged" of veteran players, that was the thinking to look at those types of players to fill holes
