I don't think Oliver is going to slide period...but if by some great stroke of luck he does...the slide will stop at #12!

Oliver or Hock at 12 would make me happy.

If neither, Wilkins or a trade down? Unless OT Jawaan Taylor or LB Devin White is there.

What of Montez Sweat is there?

If Hock, Taylor and 3 QBs are gone, that gives us the 7th pick on defense.

Assuming no CB/S off the board before 12.

Top 4 on defense = Bozo, Williams, Allen & White.

So that reduces things to 3 guys. Who are they?

Oliver obviously.

Wilkins, like Oliver, could easily replace Daniels after year 1. Sweat would give us a 3rd OLB.

I can live with all three. Which means I can live with all 12 picks noted above.

Wildcard: Only 2 QBs get taken before pick 12! Then all 12 are off the board and I really don't have a favorite at 13. So then I say trade down.

I would love to see Pack find a way to draft both Hock and Fant in R1. That would make us a 21 offense w Devante at one WR and committee at other WR spot.
21 lets us run on 1st and 2nd down w/o tipping our hand. Two TEs like this in the red zone, along with Devante is pick your poison. Yes, this would mean no Oliver, no Sweat and no Wilkins but it would be a serious upgrade for the offense and set up Rogers with weapons for next 5 years. Might have to move up from 30 to get Fant. Could cost us a 3rd or 4th. Say its a 3rd. Use R2 pick on S and two 4s on OL/RB.

Will the Pack take two TEs in R1? Probably not. Pick 30 could land a really good S.

It would be sweet if Sweat was available at 12!
