If you haven’t noticed them already, the mock draft fanatics are slowly making their way to a city near you. Who is it going to be? Luckily, Rail Bird Central has it covered.
According to Brian:
“Florida State linebacker Everette Brown – 30% – Right now Brown is the odds on favorite to be drafted by the Packers. He’s a good fit for the 3-4 defense, he fills a need, and he’s most likely going to be available.
Texas linebacker Brian Orakpo – 25% – Orakpo is slightly behind Brown in overall athleticism and upside. He can certainly rush the quarterback, but can he do other things required of a 3-4 linebacker?
Boston College defensive tackle B.J. Raji – 15% – I think the Packers will take Raji if he’s available. The problem is, I don’t think he’ll be available. Fans can only hope he slips to the Pack at number nine.”
I personally hope we never see another Florida State player in Green Bay, but for the most part I think the rest of his list is a pretty fair assessment.
I was surprised that Aaron Maybin got little to no mention outside of a slight chance in the field. And yes, Malcolm Jenkins is a terrible, let me repeat, terrible, choice.
Michael Crabtree huh? Would make for an interesting first day.
