I think the people who are expecting the Packers to spend a first round pick on an edge rusher should prepare themselves for disappointment.

If we stay at #12 and #30, I think it'll be White and Abrams. I can live with that. Both of them would start in positions where we don't have a clear starter right now.

Truly, it would mean that since he arrived, Gutekunst would have brought in two new safeties, two new cornerbacks (remember, we had been BAD for quite a while in pass defense), two new edge rushers, and one new ILB. I also suspect we'll offer Wilkerson a one-year prove it deal. Oh, and of course a new defensive coordinator in Pettine.

So that's quite an overhaul. By my count, that's seven new defensive starters and a new DC since he took the job.

FWIW most mock drafts seem to have White going before the Packers pick at #12. Would you be advocating a move up to get him? Perhaps moving up 3 or 4 spots, and at what cost?

I see White ....in a majority of what I consider the more astute drafts...going to Tampa at #5 or Cincinnati at #11.

But....as a wise man told me many years ago....”somebody always falls”. I have found it to be true. There is always somebody on the board when you pick that you thought would be gone.

ILBs don’t normally go that early. Last year, Roquan Smith went @8. Reddick was #13 in 2017. In 2016, no ILBs were taken in the first round. The year before that, the first ILB was taken at #31.

Tampa needs a lot of things. So does Cincinnati. So I’m calculating that there’s a 50% chance White will fall to us.

Nice breakdown, sounds reasonable though 5% is pretty low (did you mean 50?)

Yeah, thanks for the catch. I'll fix that.

Three weeks to the draft. We're not going to see a lot of movement at the top of the draft, but we'll see some. QBs, for example, always seem to get more important when teams are getting closer to having to make an actual choice instead of living in mock world.

It is thought that Denver, at #10, Miami, at #13, and the Giants at #17 would be looking at Haskins, Lock, and Jones. Cincinnati needs a QB, too.....I think they've realized by now that Andy Dalton isn't going to get them there, and they see what Mayfield and Jackson have done for two of their division rivals. Dalton will turn 32 this season....still tread on the tires, but he's the QB of a last place team right now.

I think that the top 4 of Murray, Bosa, Williams, and Allen are pretty much set in stone. After that, I think just about anybody could be taken at #5 or fall to #12.
