CheeseheadTV 2022 *DO NOT DRAFT* List

Years ago, I used to call this the "FUBAR"" list (if you don't know what that stands for, use google). Eventually, I realized there can be many other reasons not to draft a player other than he is FUBAR. So to open it up to these other possibilities, I changed this to the more inclusive DO NOT DRAFT. As you will see, there are a variety of reasons given here. 

So here they are, in no particular order, the players our writers DO NOT want the Packers to draft:

Bruce Irons -  Treylon Burks, WR - I know the Packers need a wide receiver (or two), but I've always been lower on Burks than most and the offseason has done nothing to change my mind. There are reports that Burks didn't know the playbook at Arkansas and had to be told what to do each play. Plus his Combine testing was a disaster, showing that he either didn't take it seriously or just isn't that talented. Either way, he's a guy I do not want the Packers to draft.

Cory Jennerjohn - Sam Howell, QB - On the surface, his stats look impressive with 92 touchdown passes the last three years. However, Howell also threw 23 picks and his completion percentage vs. FBS Power 5 teams is only 59.9 percent compared to 75 percent vs. all other teams. 

Wendell Ferreira - Devin Lloyd, LB - After passing off-ball linebackers for years in the draft when it was a huge need, the Packers found De'Vondre Campbell in free agency last season. Now, it's even less important to draft a linebacker high, especially considering the positional value.

Dusty Evely - Treylon Burks, WR - All things are relative, of course. If Burks is available in the 4th, absolutely take a swing on him. But since it looks like it's going to take a 1st round (or early 2nd round) pick to get him, I don't want the Packers anywhere near that noise. I'm not saying he won't be a good or useful player, but I don't love his timetable. He could be a nice gadget/RPO guy, but he still seems a bit too raw, and more than a little inconsistent (both in performance and effort). He may turn into a really nice player by year 3, but the Packers are on a more accelerated path, so I very much want them to steer clear.

Mark Oldacres - Trevor Penning, OT  - Penning will almost certainly go in the 1st round but I see him as a 2nd or 3rd round player. I'm also not in love with his whole 'tough guy' act.

Gil Martin - David Ojabo, LB - While I think he has great upside, I wouldn't take him in the first round because he is unlikely to play this season. In the second round, I'd grab him without hesitation but I doubt he's still available.

Maggie Loney - Kaiir Elam, CB, - I love Elam as a player but the Packers just got young long-term talent at CB drafting Eric Stokes last season. Jaire Alexander is due his extension and Green Bay also committed to Rasul Douglas with a three-year deal. Depth at cornerback is important, of course, but find that depth late day two or early day three (or even Round 1 in 2023). This year, use your draft capital to take two immediate impact players at more pressing positions of need. 

Joseph Randolph - Garret Wilson, WR - I don't see him as a complete wide receiver....more of a gadget player you gotta scheme for. He needs the defense to be worried about someone else on the field for him to be really successful. Fast but not many big plays were made downfield. Has a small frame that may not hold up to NFL punishment.

Ken Lass - Jameson Williams, WR - A speed receiver coming off a January torn ACL.  Not a good combination.  He won't be able to run past NFL defensive backs the way he did in college.

Jersey Al Bracco - Jameson Williams, WR - A one-year wonder who would have been the #4 WR on Ohio State in 2021 (which is why he transferred). He's likely to miss most of, if not all of the 2022 season, which doesn't help the Packers in their "yet another last dance" crusade.

Tim Backes - Literally any quarterback. First and foremost, this is just not a draft for quarterbacks. It's the worst for the position in nearly a decade. Second, there's already a need to figure out what to do with Jordan Love. Adding another quarterback would only make the situation worse. There is literally no need to draft a quarterback in this draft anywhere if you intend to keep Jordan Love, and even if you don't, this isn't the draft to find a project to replace Rodgers in a few years unless a guy with a second-round grade falls to the last couple rounds of the draft. This team has plenty of other positions that need depth.

Gunnar Davis -  Any quarterback in the first round. Do I think this will happen? No. But I didn't think it would happen in 2020 either. Please, Brian Gutekunst, my soul cannot take another first-round quarterback controversy.

I fundamentally disagree with Ken's reasoning on Williams. He's THAT fast. I understand the other concerns about him, but saying he won't out run DB's in the NFL is something I just don't agree with.

He was predicted in the 4.3 range prior to injury. Of course that’s just an estimate, but it’s fast enough. When he gets back to that and full burst/agility is anybody’s guess. I agree with passing in him for the main reasons cited.

That Williams went to Bama being lower on the depth chart at Ohio St: so did Joe Burrow, had one of, if not the best, season a college QB ever had. Williams may miss the first half of 2022. Coming back for the second half is OK with me. But then again, he is one of my draft crushees.

The only one I take issue with is Devin Lloyd. Campbell is great and I love him. He's what we've always wanted at ILBer. But, he's getting older, and won't be around forever and injuries happen.

Devin Lloyd can be our ILBer of the future, and I don't care what anyone says about we have to win now, the draft is about the team's overall future. Devin Lloyd can come in and be paired with Campbell right away on 1st downs and get acclimated to the NFL and you can move him around as a chess piece, with De'Vondre in the middle.

Lloyd is 6' 3" 237 lbs, ran a 4.66 did 25 reps (means he's strong) with a 35" vert and 126 broad. He's not only a pick for the future, but could solidify the middle of our defense in any scenario. I doubt he makes it to 22, but if he's on the board and we pass, it better be for a starting RT or Starting DL.

I believe Lloyd would start opposite Campbell day one and for the next decade.

We only play one linebacker half the time. I’d rather spend my first pick on a guy that’s on the field more. I think Lloyd is a real good player, and if we hadn’t resigned Campbell I’d probably have a different view .

At 22, we should get the guy who can help our team the most, We could use a big, young, physical WR in this draft, and imo, that group includes Burks, Watson, and Pickens, all of whom will probably be gone by 53.

I can’t think of any player at any position who would help us more this year than a big WR, and I think Burks at #22 is our best play.

Not ideal, but Barnes can play as he did do that position before Campbell. He actually played decent, not great but not bad, I think there are bigger needs and agree with LH, unless he would fall to the later part of round 2. I do like Devin a lot. I'd take one of the top safeties before Devin thou as it fits our scheme better. I'm not sure how flexible they want to be with the star position.

I really want them to go OT or Edge in round 1. Also, read an article recently that talked about LB's being the biggest bust in round 1 over the years. I don't have any back up on that, but I remember reading it.

With respect, Murf, Barnes sucked. He didn't suck as bad in 2021 as he did in 2020, but it was only marginal. A few nice tackles.

And he sucked for 527 snaps, LH. Getting Barnes off the field is one of the fasted ways to make GB better in 2022; that would presumably be for at least 527 snaps and probably more because one can't know how many snaps Barry would give a 2nd ILB who wasn't rancid. Getting Black replaced by someone who isn't absolutely awful would also help in 200 more snaps.

It doesn't have to be Lloyd or Dean in the first. Troy Anderson in the 3rd/4th, Asomoah in the 3rd ish, Muma at 59, and maybe there are some day three types I don't know about.

Agree. Barnes is a good back up...but he starts in the base D because the depth is so poor at ILB.

He can bring the wood at times, but he absolutely cannot cover and too often on run plays he takes a bad angle or gets caught in the trash. Just not very instinctive.

I like him on the Packers because he is such a high effort guy...just not very talented.

It is similar and a cover capable ILB pair might see more playing time together, we don’t know. Whether ILB is worthy of a first rounder given other needs is a better context though. We need a 3rd OLB, we need WRs and, behind them maybe a DL and OL high pick. I’d put it on a par with S, but we may need one to be ready to start for next year. I’d love another ILB, but maybe not a prime priority?

More like no depth and a questionable guy in Barnes playing half the snaps. Even if it's day 3 they definitely need to draft at least one guy, two would be better. I don't think anyone wants to see Summers having to start because of injuries.

I agree BDU; additionally, Campbell's back-ups are terrible. Lloyd is #8 on my Big Board! Even Nakobe Dean is my #21.
For those of you saying "we don't play two LBs" I'd like to add "in the past."
Maybe if we had two great ILBs, we'd play them both a LOT.

That is the thing. If we were to have another ILBer who was great, we might play more 2 ILBer looks. Devin is a playmaker and we need playmakers.

My ideal situation is: Dallas trades up to 22 for a 3rd or 4th round pick to take Burks and we draft Lloyd at 24 and come back and draft Wyatt at 28, because it seems he's dropping on media boards, which means he might be falling due to the character concerns, but Gutey brought him in for a visit, so if Gutey is comfortable taking him at 28, so am I.

Our defense would go from good to great very quickly. Especially if we get a 3rd Safety in the 2nd round.

Based on recent evidence, Gutey may have brought Wyatt in keep him off his board vs putting him on it.

Over the last 4 years and 120 "visits" very, very few have been drafted by Gutey and most did not stay in GB very long.

The article on the "visits" CHTV did recently was an eye opener for me.

Agree 100%, BirdDogUni. Devin Lloyd’s talent is undeniable, and he might drop to us, which would be phenomenal.

There’s also an outside chance the Packers and DC/ILB Guru, Joe Barry, has been working on Ray Wilborn’s development with that focus, to pair with Campbell or to work as his primary backup. He’s got the physical gifts to be special.

Because of Wilborn, who I think was a UDFA steal on the Yosh level, I could see us not adding LB altogether. We also do have a thumper in LB La'Darius Hamilton 6-2 261 out of North Texas on the roster already from one of a Gutekunst’s stealth January adds…

If they really want LB help, and Lloyd doesn’t drop, Muma and Andersen are possibly best.

I was shocked that night too. You were on the Burns bandwagon too weren't you? I didn't think he'd make it to 12 and then thought it was a no brainer. Especially with the size of the Smith bros I thought Burns would make a good change of pace DPR at first.

It will be interesting this year to see if they are still more interested in the bigger guys. Barry and the new OLBs both had much smaller OLBs at their last jobs.

I like this exercise!

I’ve taken a very deep look at the top 2 positions the Packers have ignored in R1 and R2 over the last 5 years: WR and DT. IT SHOWS:

2021 Stokes, Myers
2020 Love, Dillon
2019 Gary, Savage, Jenkins
2018 Alexander, Jackson
2017 King, Jones

During that entire span, the most glaring weakness this Packers team has had, every year in that span?

RUN STOP.

WR has now become an immediate need as well. It’s past time we hit both positions up top with the best players we can possibly add, and in-fill remaining need position groups past R1 & R2.

GET THE BEST OF THE BEST AVAILABLE. Stick to DT or WR. Both could be hit twice.

Examples (not saying these are my picks):
22 Devonte Wyatt
28 WR George Pickens
52 DT Travis Jones
56 WR Alec Pierce

22 WR Chris Olave
28 WR Skyy Moore
52 DT Phidarian Mathis
59 DT Perrion Winfree

22 DT Devonte Wyatt
28 DT Travis Jones
53 Alec Pierce
59 WR Tyquan Thornton

Kenny Clark is an X-factor on our DL, because he’s a great NT who can also switch to 3-tech. I question if he isn’t better at NT… Slayton, a player at NT that I feel was a steal R5 last year is key. So, adding 3-tech depth would be smart. Not even sure about availability in any of the three scenarios, but, it wouldn’t be a bad focus. I might prefer this last one, myself - if just for the higher probability, should Wyatt drop, and for the instant transformation it would provide like a catapult for the Packers defense.

Both needs sticking out of our shirt collar like “The Man With Two Heads.”

So many WR combinations we can add and be instantly better going into Day 3. Not the case at DL. I only see 2 DL I like as possibilities Day 3, and just one I think will make it to 132…

Only 5 DL I like for GB Day1 & 2 who I think -might- be available to us, 4 are listed here…

I was waiting for this list....I thought it may have been forgotten.

Wholly agree with the last four entries: we can't afford to wait an extended period on a WR to heal fully this time around, and the last thing we need to do is burn a higher pick on a QB unless some unforeseen transaction takes place.

Also I'll agree about passing on Ojabo: also injured, very raw (only one year of experience), and seldom faced double teams in playing with Hutchinson; not worth the risk in my mind.

We have a couple of naysayers for Burks, and maybe he needs some work, but he fits the physical profile. As we have seen in the recent past, Gute sometimes draft players from the FUBAR list, so this could be a prime candidate. Maybe he'll go early and we'll have a chance at Olave or Watson instead.

I’m a naysayer on Burks without the rumors. Just don’t know if his athleticism will translate against NFL opposition. It might or it might not, but that’s a big gamble. One I’d take in the second perhaps, not the first. IF He struggled to learn the O in college, that would change to a hard no.

As a side note, the last high pick we used on an Arkansas player was Ahmad Carroll back in 2004. I don't know if hangovers last that long, but it could be something lurking in the back of Gute's mind, since he apparently scouted the Southeast back then.

My Do not draft list is any ILB in the first round. Give me Cine over Devin or Dean.

A quote from PFN as he added 15 lbs to his frame from SO to JR. "His hits shook multiple players at 185 pounds. At 200 pounds, he hits with the equivalent force of a freight train colliding with a concrete barrier." "plays with a nasty attitude". We need that in the Packers Defense. We need teams to fear our D, like the Legion of Boom was feared in their heyday.

You have to cover the pass catchers first and foremost in the NFL, getting someone who hits like a freight train and runs a 4.37 and has experience playing slot is better IMO. Let me add, he's also 6'2 with long arms and a RAS of 9.32.

He's not without downside as they state he can get out of position and I would like to have seen more INT's but he did lead Georgia in Tackles and pass defended last year. And he is young. Once you get past the top 5 or 10, they all have areas they have to work on.

Add to that, no matter who we put back there, they’ll be stressed without better DL & EDGE rotations.

I’m liking a lot of the Safeties more than I thought I would in this draft.

If Hill is on the board, he is THE ONE.

He is the next Charles Woodson.

The GBP desperately NEED a slot CB, ours went away via FA, and while he was no world beater, that does leave a GAPING hole in the defense.

Hill could fill the slot CB role as well as take all of Blacks 3rd safety snaps if GB wants to go JA, stokes, Rasul at 3 CB's.

Hell, I believe he could take Savages starter snaps, Savage is firmly entrenched in my doghouse.

As an outsider, definitely question Burks. Gutey, LeFleur, and Rodgers will all doing research on it.
Trust Gutey's judgement far more than my own.

Hate the fact Patriots, Rams, and Bucs are drooling over so teams planning to draft WRs in rounds 1-2.
Want to win the SB, pressure the QB early and often. QBs under pressure + young WRs = turnovers or incompletions. QBs and young WRs are rarely on the same page. Look at Rodgers record with young WRs.

Has anyone ever thought that maybe Gute was intentionally waiting for this draft class to replenish the WR position? Considering this draft is deep at the position with good WRs to be had early, mid and late rounds who could potentially become great with A-Rodg at the helm. Also, that maybe Treylon Burks is smarter than you all think and doesn't want to be a top pick and get drafted to a poop team, with a poop QB, only to suffer throughout his rookie contract. Maybe he would rather be drafted by a winning team and be surrounded by better players so the pressure isn't all on him. Maybe he tanked the combine in order to be positioned better for a successful career with a successful team. Just a thought. That being said, I would much rather have Burks than London (my DO NOT DRAFT guy) all day long. I believe he'll be the big bust of this draft at WR and I actually would prefer Pickens over both of them.

P.S. Jameson Williams is a stud, torn ACL or not. So what if he's not ready to play this season. This draft is deep enough to take 2 other WRs to get us through this year without him. The draft is generally for your franchise's future. Which our future at WR is even more grim than it is now because of contracts expiring after this year. You're lucky when a guy comes in and plays like a vet in year 1. While he recovers, he can learn the playbook and get a feel for the system. Learn from some vets and who knows, maybe be ready for the playoffs and be the final piece to take us all the way. Check the tape, he'd be worth the wait. ACL injuries aren't as scary as they used to be (I.E. Adrian Peterson's monster year after he recovered). If he's there at 22 (which I highly doubt), I would be disappointed if we pass on him.

Torn ACL's can be serious. Just ask Bakh. We don't know for sure if Bakh will be what he was, we've got Elgton out for 1/2 the year with an ACL, if we're lucky. I don't want another guy recovering from an ACL.

There is a rumor that the Falcons are very interested in trading for Jordan Love. If it is true, I'd trade Love and #22 for The Falcons #8 and take Jameson Willams. He's the only WR I'm trading up for. Otherwise I'm waiting to see who falls to #22 and #28. Possibly trading down to the top of the 2nd round and grab Pickens or Watson who are hopefully still there. Gain a few extra picks to try and get guys like Pierce, Tolbert, Doubs and/or Thornton down the line. Or even Kevin Austin who I believe is a sleeper. If we trade up for London or he drops to #22 and we take him, I'm done being a Packer's fan. Lol kidding. Seriously though I'd just be hoping I'm wrong about him. I compare him to Mike Williams, the guy the Lions drafted years ago 10th overall and was a super bust. Tall and slow, no thanks. There's a reason he didn't run the 40. Please DO NOT DRAFT him Gute!

So, it's simple, avoid Treylon Burks and Jameson Williams at wide receiver, and avoid any quarterbacks.
After that, just take the best of the best players who love football and have a good attitude.
***
How about one wide receiver among our first four picks, then base the other three on best player available at just about any other position except quarterback or running back, maybe cornerback?
Take another wide receiver later.
Get at least one potential starter in the next two seasons for the OL and DL,
***
From reading this article, as well recent comments from fans at CHTV about the draft, there are few, if any, obvious busts. Perhaps avoid selecting injured players early, and those with questionable attitudes altogether.
Take a deep breath, enjoy the excitement of building up the Packers, embrace the new guys, coach 'em up, have fun, and relax.
Three months until training camp.

These stories about Burks are concerning but they are just coming out in the last week. The Packers had him in for a visit, if they take him I'll be fine with it. That would point to it all just being subterfuge from one or multiple teams. I actually don't mind his anti combine stance, besides the fact it probably cost him some money over the next 4 years.

I wonder if players are ever drafted by a team and then find out it was said team that leaked BS about him? I'd be one seriously PO'd individual if that happened to me. Like trade me today PO'd.

I guess having lived through the Tony Mandarich fiasco I'm still skeptical about the draft. No one, not even the GM's and the coaches know if any rookie can 'cut it' until the pads come on.

Kayvon Thibodeaux would be my 'watch'. All the national media dopes have him as a 'can't miss' but the guy has attitude problems and is a one trick pony. He's fast off the edge, but the o-tackles in the NFL face fast people off the edge all the time. I look for a guy that keeps his mouth shut and plays hard. This isn't that guy.

OL can be had later, there are bigger fish to be had at 22 and/or 28.

7s...occasionally they're great like Kupp, AB, DK, KAllen...more often than not they're left wondering what their careers might have while riding the pine injured like Parker, Fuller, Hilton, Engram, Newton, CEH

WYATT, DEVONTE
ASAMOAH, BRIAN
EKWONU, IKEM
BRISKER, JAQUAN
CINE, LEWIS
MCBRIDE, TREY
