Packers Select S Kelcie McCray in Sixth Round of #MockFour

With the 28th pick in the sixth round of #MockFour, the Packers selected Arkansas State safety Kelcie McCray.

While several quarterback options were discussed, Brian Carriveau and I both agreed that taking McCray fit both in value and need at the end of the sixth round.

The Packers are likely to look at a safety or two in this draft, as the undetermined future of Nick Collins' NFL career continues to loom over a position that already lacked depth. While not an immediate starter, McCray does give the Packers more bodies at safety.

McCray (6-1, 202 lbs.) was a first-team All-Sun Belt selection in 2011 after intercepting four passes for the Red Wolves. He started 36 games at Arkansas State.

McCray received an invite to the NFL combine, running a 4.54-second 40-yard dash, 4.29-second 20-yard shuttle and a 7.00-second three-cone drill in Indianapolis. At his pro day in late March, McCray registered a 33.5" vertical leap and 12 reps at 225 pounds.

He was a former teammate of current Packers safety M.D. Jennings at Arkansas State.

The Packers #MockFour draft so far...

1.28––Alabama linebacker Dont'a Hightower

2.28––Clemson defensive lineman Brandon Thompson

3.28––Cincinnati defensive lineman Derek Wolfe

4.28––Baylor center Philip Blake

4.37––Tempe running back Bernard Pierce

4.38––LSU cornerback Ron Brooks

5.28––Missouri outside linebacker Jacquies Smith

6.28––Arkansas State safety Kelcie McCray

Just a question, guys. Are you going strickly BPA, or need is affecting your decisions? You're getting the "BPA that makes sense"?

I'm quessing since 75% of their picks are on D and the two offensive picks are somewhat need picks, that Brian and Zach are basing most of their selections on BPA of need. I hope TT goes this way too.

In about a week we'll see if they hit on any of them.

Very good draft so far.

I know you may have a little TT in you and like him are hesitant to give away any of your strategy...but...could you include the players that you were considering?

This is an outstanding draft thus far. The first 5 picks are absolute money. Getting Jacquies Smith is a steal imo as well.

Just went back and looked at the Packers 2007 draft. If you 2011 resembles 2007 in any way, this team is doomed.

Yeah, that was a rough year. But, still, Bishop and Crosby are two great 6th round picks. But they're the only two who really panned out (though I do like Jones in the 3rd).
