If all of these Packer fans get their way, Detroit will gladly take Dean.  The guy is a stud and would fill a big hole.  I am guessing he goes top 15 though when its all said and done. 

 

As for the draft now, I like it for Detroit.  KT seems like a given and if Corral drops that far I would be all for it.  

Yeah, love it for the Lions. Certainly can't complain about grabbing both of those players.

28.    Green Bay Packers - Nakobe Dean Georgia JR ILB 
    29.    Buffalo Bills   - Jameson Williams Alabama JR WR
    30.    Detroit Lions via (Los Angeles Rams) - Matt Corral Ole Miss RS JR QB
    31.    Tennessee Titans -  Jalen Wydermyer Texas A&M JR TE
    32.   Tampa Bay Buccaneers   - George Karlaftis Purdue JR DE

For the Packers, I'd be looking at Edge, WR, TE.

CB and DT are also possible. 

That means I'd take Karlaftis first, then Wydermyer, then a WR, over an ILB.

For the first time in a long time the Packers are pretty decent at ILB and better-than-decent at S.

True Edge could make more sense but I still feel NFL is changing towards more athletic ILBs like the Ravens have, that have more range in space and coverage potential.  Sure they have a ILB but outside of Campbell it is pretty weak and is why they brought in Jaylon Smith who clearly did not turn out or is all washed up.

Karlaftis I have heard as a 3/4 OLB type but not sure he fits that bill, they already have a big strong OLB I think they would want a little more athletic ability off the other edge.  Will be curious what the Packers do but ultimately it depends on Rodgers, because if he is gone then QB is totally in play.  And at TE why when they have Tonyan unless they are not willing to pay him, but I assume they love that guy, and Deguara is not too bad as a developmental guy, sure in the later rounds though makes sense.  

 

Also could be kind of foolish to reach on a edge guy unless they really love the dude because there are an absolute ton of them they could take in the later rounds 2nd to 3rd and beyond.

 

Myjai Sanders Cincinnati
Zach Harrison Ohio State JR
Amare Barno VirginiaTech RS JR
Arnold Ebiketie Penn State
Jermaine Johnson Florida State
Sam Williams Ole Miss
Adam Anderson Georgia
Tyreke Smith Ohio State
Tyree Johnson Texas A&M RS
Boye Mafe Minnesota RS
Isaiah Thomas Oklahoma RS
Kingsley Enagbare South Carolina
Owen Carney Jr Illinois
Tre Williams Arkansas RS
Will McDonald IV Iowa State RS JR
Zach VanValkenburg Iowa RS
Jesse Luketa Penn State
Christopher Allen Alabama RS
Ali Gaye LSU
Andre Anthony LSU RS
Brenton Cox Jr Florida RS JR
Jeffrey Gunter Coastal Carolina
Xavier Thomas Clemson
Drake Jackson USC JR
Michael Clemons Texas A&M

 

Sure not all are great 3/4 OLB prospects but a ton of them could pull it off is asked, well technically all of them could if Karlaftis can but still kind of question that.  Baldonado, Foskey and Ojabo all could pull off a 3/4 OLB better than Karlaftis I would guess.

 

Guys like Anthony, Gaye, Cox, Gunter could totally fill a 3/4 edge void but sure one could say the same for ILB but there are not a ton of speed ILBs like Dean around.  There are a decent amount of solid ILBs but none are really like Dean in this class.

The Packers clearly like their EDGE on the bigger side.  Their top 3 EDGE (Za'Darius Smith, Preston Smith, and Rashan Gary) are all 260+ pounds.  I believe the only EDGE they have under 250 is Tipa Galeai, and he's been a PS for the majority of his career presumably to get his weight up.  The last twitchy EDGE they drafted was Clay Matthews, but recent years has them favoring the bigger EDGE.  Karlaftis is a near perfect fit.

Where is Ikem Ekwonu?

He is a RS SOPH I believe so not sure he declares this year but would help the OL class overall if he does.

Dawand Jones, will see if he declares, if he does he could be a sleeper pick for being a mid to late 1st round OT prospect just like his teammate on the other side.

22.    New England Patriots -  Chris Olave Ohio State SR WR
    23.    Kansas City Chiefs - Isaiah Foskey Notre Dame RS SOPH DE  
    24.    Arizona Cardinals - Ahmad Gardner Cincinnati JR CB

BB will take CB here. Jackson contract is up and after him, they have nothing close to a SD CB. I would not take a WR or RB in the 1st round.  QB, LT and CB  are the building block for success.
