Armchair GM - Build your Packers Team


Recommended Posts

We are all a bunch of rabid armchair GM Packer fans, so why not have some fun with it? Let's all build our own Packers team and have some fun making fun of each other's GM decisions.

Rules:

  • You have to keep 4 players from offense, 4 from defense, and 1 from special teams (K or P). You may not keep more than that.
  • You need to fill out the rest of the starting 11/11/2, using the 4/4/1 you kept from above. So 7 players on offense, 7 players on defense, and 1 special teamer (15 total new players). 
  • You may only pick 1 player from a different team. So for example, if you pick someone from Kansas City for a position you can no longer pick another Kansas City player for your team. Since there are 31 other teams out there and you will have more than enough teams to pick a player from, however you may want to consider which player means more to you from that other team. Picking Jalen Ramsey means you can't get Aaron Donald as an example. 
  • Feel free to change up the schemes if you want (want a 4-3? Go for it), but keep in mind you still have to make 4 current players fit.
  • Everyone's picks are fair game for feedback. Armchair GMs are tough due to their diet of beer and pretzels.


My Team:

  • Offense - 
    • QB Justin Herbert - LA Chargers - Young and upcoming QB who has shown some truly great skills already
    • HB Christian McCaffrey - Carolina - An all around great back who can truly change games by himself
    • FB/H-Back Andy Janovich - CLE - It is a FB, don't over think it
    • LT David Bakhtiari - GB - One of, if not the best LT in the game
    • LG Elton Jenkins - GB - Repeat above but substitute "LG" in place of "LT". Plus he can fill any of the 5 positions at a high level if needed
    • C Josh Meyers - GB - I think this guy has potential to be better than Lindsey sooner rather than later
    • RG Quenton Nelson - IND - One of the best Guards in the game, good at both rush and pass blocking
    • RT Ryan Ramczyk - NO - Still young and already considered one of the best tackles in the game
    • TE Darren Waller - LV - Just an unfair matchup for defenses. He is a WR in a TE's body.
    • WR1 Davante Adams - GB - The best route running WR in the league, a true game changer who can help out any QB
    • WR2 DeAndre Hopkins - AZ - Watching him and Adams break CBs' ankles on cut routes would be nice
  • Defense - 
    • DE Cameron Heyward - Pittsburg - This guy can play any of the 3 positions at a top tier level
    • NT Grady Jarret - ATL - While he might be "small" for a true NT, this guy plays with serious explosiveness and leverage. 
    • DE Kenny Clark - GB - Still "young", with a high motor and great skills he can fill any of the DL positions without missing a beat
    • OLB1 Khalil Mack - CHI - Still dominate, but stuck on a badly coached team
    • OLB2 Rashan Gary - GB - Young player who has flashed some serious development to go with his high energy
    • MLB1 Fred Warner - SF - Probably the best MLB in the game right now
    • MLB2 Devin White - TB - Probably the best MLB in the game right now (yea, I know I said that above)
    • CB1 Jaire Alexander GB - The best CB in the league in my opinion, and I love the attitude on what I want to be an aggressive defense
    • CB2 Jalen Ramsey LA Rams - The second best CB in the league, and would be lights out with Alexander
    • SS Tyrann Mathieu - KS - Versatile and able to play anywhere in the secondary at a high level
    • FS - Darnell Savage - GB - Young, talented, and able to play across the board in the secondary. Mixing him and Mathieu up is going to confuse offenses
  • Special Teams - 
    • K Mason Crosby -GB -  I think the guy is a solid NFL kicker with a few more years left
    • P Michael DIckson - Seattle - Guy is an artist at pinning teams inside the 20 yard line

You picked Honey Badger over Mahomes for your one KC player, and selected Hebert as QB.  Care to share your rationale for that?  Just curious.

I'm really high on Herbert for some reason. I think he could be really, really good. I also really like the idea of pairing Savage with Mathieu, I just feel like they would be lights out together. 

 

Plus I figured everyone else would pick Mahomes and there is no fun in conforming.

Dang... Crosby is going to have to punt. Also, nobody get injured or need a break. 😀

Just to put another spin on this, I added a bit more to it and, of the 15 I had to add, I added roster restrictions. I'm taking two picks from the last 7 drafts, one from day 1 and the other day 2/3, and then the specialist. Feel it limits you to not taking just 15 all-pros lol. 

Note: The team that drafted them doesn't matter, it's who they play for in 2021.

QB Patrick Mahomes (KC) - 2017 1st
RB Aaron Jones
LT David Bakhtiari
LG Elgton Jenkins
C Quinn Meinerz (DEN) - 2021 Day 2/3
RG Andrus Peat (NO) - 2015 1st
RT Ronnie Stanley (BAL) - 2016 1st
TE Kyle Pitts (ATL) - 2021 1st
WR1 Davante Adams
WR2 DK Metcalf (SEA) - 2019 Day 2/3
SLOT Cooper Kupp (LAR) - 2017 Day 2/3

DT Javon Hargrave (PHI) - 2016 Day 2/3
NT Kenny Clark 
DE Chase Young (WAS) - 2020 1st
EDGE Za'Darius Smith
ILB Devin White (TB) - 2019 1st
ILB Darius Leonard (IND) - 2018 Day 2/3
EDGE Danielle Hunter (MIN) - 2015 Day 2/3
CB1 Jaire Alexander
CB2 Jaylon Johnson (CHI) - 2020 Day 2/3
FS Minkah Fitzpatrick (PIT) - 2018 1st
SS Adrian Amos

K Mason Crosby
