The Anything but WR Draft


Recommended Posts

Everyone and their dog is aware of the WR situation in GB. It seems everyone has Gb taking one or even two first round WR's this year so i am little over the WR talk. I decided to go anti WR and completely ignore the position for this mock.

I am assuming no more moves from now until the draft and Gute will let the draft decide what other free agent additions he needs. so with no further ado please feel free to tear apart as you wish

22. Devonte Wyatt, IDL, Georgia - Probably not the highest priority but I couldn't pass on the value of the selection. Wyatt is my favorite interior guy available in the draft and when paired with KC could be a very disruptive tandem. Kind of a thunder and lightning on the interior d-line as Wyatt wins more with quickness compared to KC's power.

28. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue - Fits the mold of the bigger EDGE players GB likes to bring in. Another value in my mind as I expect Karlaftis to be gone before this selection. A power rusher with great hands is something I find hard to pass.

Bernhard Raimann (@BernhardRaimann) / Twitter

53. Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan - Athletic and raw. Raimann is a raw developmental prospect but has the ability to contribute early especially given the track history of this staff. Gives GB options as Jenkins recovers from his injury and if things go well Raimann holds the spot and Jenkins returns to his LG spot.

Colorado State football tight end Trey McBride reportedly enters NCAA  transfer portal

59. Trey McBride, TE, Colorado State - McBride and Ferguson are my two favorite TE prospects in this draft. McBride is the more athletic player seemingly and maybe even more athletic than Tonyan. McBride is a very good receiver and is flexibility in where he lines up. He isn't a great blocker but does not shy away from it. Tonyan wasn't a great blocker when he first arrived either so hopefully Bahk can get it into McBride's ear like he did for Big Bob.

MSU football’s Troy Andersen is not fazed by recent attention | KECI

92. Troy Andersen, LB, Montana State - The Swiss Army Knife of the draft. i don't know if there is a position outside the down lineman that Andersen has not played while at MSU. Has only played two years of LB but shows good instincts and his time at QB I believe will help him in his transition. Offers more athleticism than Barnes and has special teams value as well.

Former Bison offensive lineman Cordell Volson has 'huge' opportunity at  East-West Shrine Bowl - InForum | Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo news,  weather and sports

132. Cordell Volson, OT, North Dakota State - Listed as a tackle is another versatile player. Has played all over the line at NDSU and like his fellow Bison Billy Turner he can play guard or tackle. Will offer great depth and could turn into a solid starter down the road.

Akayleb Evans - University of Missouri | Cornerback #26 | CoachTube

140. Akayleb Evans, CB, Missouri - Big, long, tall, and physical. more of a zone guy than a man guy. Has somewhat poor ball skills/struggles locating the ball at times but is a very physical corner and plays well in run support

2021 Draft Prospects: Reed Blankenship | East West

171. Reed Blankenship, S, Middle Tennessee - An improvement in the third safety spot. Can play down in the box some and offer that hybrid safety linebacker role. Another player with suspect ball skills but for the role I see him in that isn't a big deal. Tough, physical guy who tackles well. Another special teams contributor.

Florida State football team demolishes UMass, 59-3

228. Jashaun Corbin, RB, Florida State - Versatile RB with some injury concerns. Offers competition for hill upon his return. One cut and go kind of guy who is tough to bring down. Good blocker and receiver who has some experience returning kicks although it was a while ago at this point.

UNC Football: Jeremiah Gemmel named to Butkus Award Watch List

249. Jeremiah Gemmel, LB, North Carolina - Experienced player with good instincts. Good lateral movement and flows well to the ball. Instincts serve him well on special teams which is where I see his biggest contribution coming.

This mock basically reflects the efforts by GB to address the WR position since drafting Adams. So in that regard it's very accurate...

Yah pretty much...no worries the Packers know the cupboard is now empty.  They will draft at least 2 and more likely 3 of them this draft.  Likely a TE as well.  That being said do like this draft.  But WR is too much a position of need now.  Also with the ridiculous salary explosion think we'll be devoting more picks to this position going forward.

Two of your first 3 picks are almost as old as Kenny Clark. Good players, but I don't see the Packers being high on them, older players are never high on their board.

Yea I know they are on the older side but I like the experienced player in hopes they can contribute a little earlier. It probably has no merit if broken down but it sounds good in my own head.

That's odd, CWood told us today that age doesn't matter for TE Jelani Woods who is in the 24th year of his life was a hot commodity and would go mid 2nd round. Maybe he is just a hot commodity for everyone but the Packers. 😄

I LOVE THIS!   And we’ll done.   The team a a whole is what needs to be considered.   Is there a need a receiver?   Yes.   But that may not be WR.   A three TE set is creative. A three RB set (or these days even a 2 RB set) is creative.   WR is a need but maybe not a PANIC.   Donald Driver was a seventh round pick and Freeman was a third round pick.  At TE, Chmura was a 6th round pick and Paul Coffman was undrafted.   Most importantly they had ambition and commitment.   Bring on the FOUR TE set with HUNGRY athletes!   (That would confuse the S out of defenses).

I like the no WR draft. This was my one shot at it (I realize some of these guys won't be available when I picked them):

22 OG Zion Johnson, Boston College
28 DT Devonte Wyatt, Georgia
53 EDGE David Ojabo, Michigan
59 LB Chad Muma, Wyoming
92 CB Zyon McCollum, Sam Houston State
132 OT Kellen Diesch, Arizona State
140 S Bryan Cook, Cincinnati
171 TE Daniel Bellinger, San Diego State
228 S Tycen Anderson, Toledo
249 DT Thomas Booker, Stanford
258 EDGE De'Shaan Dixon, Norfolk State
