Packers Mock Draft Monday 10.0

Ross will provide a semi-weekly roundup of national mock drafts relating to the Packers picks.  This is his second run-through using The Draft Network's software.  TDN's Predictive Board was used in lieu of their player rankings.  In 2019 the Packers will pick six times in the first four rounds, so those are the rounds that we will focus on.

I really enjoyed the way that this played out because it's the kind of "fun" draft that the Packers can have due to free agency.  I actually had the decision between Brian Burns and Ed Oliver.  As you can find here in my one-of-a-kind Packers specific big board, I actually rank both Oliver and Burns in my top five, but Burns is ranked higher.  I chose to wait on a pass rusher because of the free agent signings.  Ed Oliver creates a potential Super Bowl level interior defensive line if Green Bay is able to re-sign Muhammad Wilkerson for peanuts for one season. After Wilkerson leaves the team (likely followed by Mike Daniels) a Packers defensive front of Oliver, Kenny Clark, Dean Lowry, and Montravious Adams is an extremely workable situation moving forward.

The addition of Hockenson gives the Packers another top 12 player, as the rest of the NFL chooses not to use their first-round pick on a "luxury" position.  The free agency signings allow Green Bay to wait on the potential of Jachai Polite, as opposed to needing him right away.  Hooker is a very nice complement to Amos.  Antoine Wesley is 6'4"+ and Tytus Howard is an interesting small school prospect that at 6'5" flat could be part of the conversation at guard.

Roundup:

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report -- Oliver, Nasir Adderley, Irv Smith Jr, JJ Arcega Whiteside - this is a fine projection for what the Packers need, but it's not a likely scenario.  Oliver and Adderley are top-flight athletes, but ISJ is not and Arcega-Whiteside isn't likely to be either (didn't test).  

Dan Kadar, SB Nation - Mocking the Draft -- Rashan Gary, Smith Jr, Garrett Bradbury - shoot this one into the sun and hope it never comes back.  Rashan Gary is the type of long term unproductive project the Packers don't have time for, ISJ is a non-elite athlete and Bradbury is a center-only prospect. The Packers have a top 5 center under contract through 2020.

Trevor Sikkema, The Draft Network -- Hockenson and Adderley - this is the kind of fun you can have when you address needs in the offseason. Safety and tight end may not be normal first round positions to target, but this secures very good players and absolutely elite athletes at both spots.

Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports -- Hockenson, Risner, and Adderley - LET'S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Matt Stypulkoski, NJ.com -- Jonah Williams and Noah Fant - I'm sure I'd talk myself into this eventually, I just think it's a foolish use of resources. Williams is an average athlete, making him an unlikely Packer.

Omar Kelly, South Florida SunSentinel -- Christian Wilkins and AJ Brown - boy I sure hope not.

Kind of a ridiculous sentiment. 4/5 OL starters are inked through 2020.

Can address it in 2020 draft, can address it in 2020 FA, can address it if Spriggs continues to improve ('17 was better than '16, '18 was better than '17), can address it in the mid rounds of this year as I did, can address it somewhat with a Cole Madison unretirement, can address it if Alex Light is good (he legitimately might be).......

OT Joe Thomas 3rd pick. 10 PBs, 6 1st All pros
DE Gaines Adams 1 playoff game, 0 SBs
OT Levi Brown 6 P/O game, 1 SB - 0 wins
DB LaRon Landry 6 playoff games 0 SBs
RB Adrian Peterson, 5 playoff games, 0 SBs
DE Jamaal Anderson 1 playoff game, 0 SBs
WR Ted Ginn, 14 playoff games, 0 SBs
DT Amobe Okoye 10th pick. 0 playoff games

Winner: Ted Ginn, the skill position player, has the most playoff games. Levi Brown, another OT, has the only SB appearance. Didn't win it, though.

OT Anthony Munoz. HOF 9 1st All pro/11 PBs.
DE Bruce Clark 1 playoff game, No SBs
RB Curtis Dickey 2 playoff games, No SBs
DE Curtis Greer No playoff games
TE Junior Miller 1 P/O game, 0 SBs Grab him!!
DB Mark Haynes, 10 P/O games, 1 SB - 0 wins
DE Doug Martin, 7 playoff games, 0 SBs
DE Jacob Green 7 playoff games, 0 SBs

Winner: Mark Haynes.

So, I guess instead of taking Munoz and Joe Thomas, Mark Haynes and Ted Ginn should have been picked.

Question is, TGR, is there a Joe Thomas or Anthony Munoz in this draft worth taking in the first couple of rounds; or would we do just as well to look for blockers in the later rounds?
I do think protecting Rodgers is way up there as a priority for this offseason. I'm just not sure what is the best approach.

I think it's pretty clear that spending high picks on offensive linemen doesn't improve your team as much as spending those same picks on offensive skill position players and defensive studs.

You can draft an OT at #5. Or you can get a pretty good one at #37 and spend your #5 pick on a position that has more of an impact on the game.

EDITXXXXXXXXXXXXEditXXXXXXXXXXXXXXeditxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I just looked up all the OL taken in the first 15 picks over the last 25 years.

4 made the HOF, and a few more will probably when they are eligible

I arranged them by their AV (Average Value).

#33 and #34 on the list are Matt Kalil and Andre "Moobs" Smith, with AVs of 43 and 40, respectively.

Compare/contrast that with skill position players. #33 on that list is Marshawn Lynch, with an AV of 78.

#35 and #37 on the list of defensive studs are Aaron Donald and Fletcher Cox, with AVs of 69 and 68.

I'm not slamming the importance of OTs, but it seems pretty clear to me that you get more bang for the buck on these early first round picks if you go with a skill position player or a defensive stud than if you go with an OL.

Since you put in the good work, you may want to repost this comment when the next mock draft comes up here at Cheesehead TV.
It could make for some good discussion.
A couple of questions for now or later:
(1) Would you take Joe Thomas if he was available this year based on what you knew about him coming out of Wisconsin?
(2) Would you take Joe Thomas if he was available this year based on what we know about him now after his great career?

I thought we had debunked judging a player's value based on team accomplishments long ago. Terry Bradshaw has 4 SB rings but he isn't the 2nd best QB to ever play. Bradshaw is 103rd all time for CarAv.

We had a fine yds/carry average as a team so how bad a blocker could Graham have been? How bad could Byron Bell have been? GB had an above average offense, therefore it follows that no individual player could have been bad overall, or even bad at something in particular. GB was 22nd against the run. Clark, Daniels, and Martinez must not be good.

If GB uses BPA, we can discuss whether that means the player who improves the Packers the most, or who would have the most impact short term and/or long term, or if it just means the most talented player.

Love the first 4 picks, Ross. Actually, I like all 6 picks.
I do agree with NitschkeFan as obtaining another OL early would be beneficial as we must protect Rodgers and run block if we want our Offense to be elite again. I like our Oline now, but injuries could set us back this season and we need replacement for Bulaga next season.

Gambling that we hit on on a stud O-lineman mid 4th rd might be to risky, although, as you have pointed out, this was one thing TT was good at and maybe BG would be too?

You did a great job filling need with quality with all 6 picks. Our team would be upgraded considerably with these picks. Unfortunately, we still have needs at several positions and we can't fill them all early , but I feel maybe replacing the Polite pick with a O-lineman might be the better call? We spent big on Edge in FA, so maybe this a comprise we need to make as much as I would love to nab Polite at 44.

A lot of “if’s” on your response. The OL was bad last year at both guard positions, and we have no reliable backup for our Tackles, one of whom is breaking down.

You have too much faith in Spriggs who I think is a bust, and COLE MADISON ?? WTF are you smoking

Nitschke -

With all respect, Taylor was hurt all year. RG is where the real problems were, and that's been fixed in free agency. The problems occur if/when Bulaga goes down, then Turner moves to RT temporarily, and RG is McCray?

Yes, OL needs attention, but not as desperately as front 7, TE and safety. I mean, McCray isn't a terrible 6th OLman. They don't grow on trees.

I agree. He came into the league as more athlete than tackle, but has shown improvement in specific areas each year. He's the best athlete on the line and a good fit as a swing tackle for a Shanahan-type scheme. He gets knocked because TT traded up for him. But he was in first round consideration for a reason that entire draft season. Let's give him until the preseason to see what he's got in Year 4. And if he doesn't work out, move on after this year when his contract is up.

Said nothing about faith in Spriggs.

What you're chasing is a pipe dream. Most NFL teams don't even have two serviceable tackles. The idea of having a 3rd one who can play is at best a luxury and at worst something you'll whiff on again anyway.

It's just not smart roster-making, especially with a club that's been so excellent at identifying mid-round offensive linemen. They don't have an immediate need.

The OL was not bad last year. Both PFF and Footballoutsiders.com rated the Packers offensive line above average.

We have our starters. I'd like to see a ready-to-start OT taken on the 2nd day of the draft. Personally, I'd trade down from #12 and get another pick in the 2nd round in the process, but that's just me.

Whatever you think of Spriggs, he's under contract. Unless he gets hurt in training camp, or plays terribly, he'll be on the Gameday 21. McCray, too, most likely. That only leaves room for one more.

Ross the DL is also locked in until 2020 but that didn’t stop you from picking Oliver.

I completely understand that pick, you feel he is a good value at 12 and Daniels (like Bulaga) might be gone next year.

Though I think Daniel’s is more likely to be a capable starter longer than Bulaga. But you use pick 12 for DL and pick 118 for OL, that discrepancy is where we will just have to agree to disagree. (And Polite uugh)

a defensive lineman who is not one of the preferred three is likely to get 300 snaps.

OS, How many sacks and pressures were on the Oline in 2018? I believe that statistic was revealed earlier in the winter and it bears fruit. Tedland is over. Spriggs was a high pick with a four pick tossed into the wasteland. McCray out-played the guy. Its a toss up between OT and DT/edge at the #12 pick. Whoever shows up take BPA and choose the other big guy in the second rd. #30 would go to the safety spot. Tramon is not the answer as the starting safety opposite Amos. There are TEs in the third round If Rodgers was put out of action in the Bear battle numero one '18, the Pack would probably be picking first in 2019.

Ross, I think you may be more optimistic about the Packer O-line than some of the rest of us. Yes, 4 of 5 are under contract through 2020, but Bulaga seems unlikely to play all 16 games and Spriggs is still a question mark as are all of the backup interior linemen. If Cole Madison unretires that will help but I have heard nothing about it happening. I would prefer to see your 4th round WR choice converted to an interior line choice. I believe we need better depth than we presently have.

Your first 4 choices are home runs and I would love it if it happens.

Mike,

Couldn't put it together yet is an unnecessary correction. He's not a rookie and has had plenty of playing time. He's improved but he hasn't taken a leap. Being more athletic has nothing to do with taking longer to develop. Some players transition to the NFL quicker than others they are all gifted athletes just to make it to that level. People want him to be good not bad. They're disappointed because he was traded up for and drafted high when the Packers had taken OL in rounds 4 or later for 10 years besides Brulaga. As for him flourishing in a new system that won't happen without the light bulb turning on and the time is running out in GB for that to happen. Doesn't mean it won't but he's running out of time on his rookie contract to prove himself as an NFL starter worthy of a 2nd contract or 1st with another team.

I agree with this. If the Packers want Hockenson, they're going to have to take him at #12 or trade down a few spots and still get him. But to think he'll still be available at #30 is too risky. I think if Hockenson begins to fall into the #20 - #30 range, New England will use some of their draft capital to move up and take him.

Stockholder I'm with you!

However, would take either Oliver or Burns and be very happy. Do whatever it takes to get Fant who would change the Packers offense which unfortunately will require a slight move up from #30. Two of those 3 picks would make for a highly successful draft. Now if they have enough draft capital I would love for them to to package whatever draft selections needed to move up at top of round 2 for Simmons. Simmons would replace McDaniels in 2020. If Gute seriously wants Simmons and has an aggressive plan to get him at top of round 2 then I 'might' take Burns if available at 12 over Oliver whom I would love to see in Green Bay.

Ross, You haven’t written an article it seems without coming back on the comment section and bashing your readers. It’s odd, some would say unprofessional. Everyone has opinions, don’t need to take them so personally. My guess is you need more beer, or less, but definitely beer is the answer.

So you can bash the hell out of me with your derogatory comment but Ross, who's pretty much like any other person here doesn't have a right to defend his opinion? Is he just supposed to sit there and let people tear it apart? I applaud Ross for getting involved with the commentors. It's yet another new and innovative idea that some are enjoying like Dragon's ratings smash drafting thru numerology.

Let me telling you something else. Everybody takes comments personally, EVERYBODY!! i applaud Ross for engaging with the commentors. I thought his comeback with listing all the 4th rounders and the two 1st round busts was absolute persuasion gold. That never happens if he doesn't engage. I wouldn't be writing this if that doesn't happen. You don't make your inciting comments about me. We end up with a boring topic. That might be what you enjoy but boring don't pay the bills.

scully, I was the target of Ross' ire. But I was having lunch typing with my fat thumbs on my tiny phone so it was hard to keep up (and not all the responses went in the correct slot).

I had a blast though, in the span of 20 minutes Ross and I posted a half dozen responses in real time. Best lunch I've had in years.

Ross did seem pretty upset that I was suggesting we pick an OL higher than 118. That really is not a crazy or unconventional suggestion. Not sure why he was so adamant and bringing out those old dumb chestnuts about Sherrod (why not mention Mandarich again). As if Datone Jones will prevent us from taking an Edge in the first round ever again, or Randall and Rollins is a cautionary tale to avoid taking DB's in the first round or two. Nonsense, pure and simple.

This on-line form of discussion is not the ideal method of communicating. No facial expressions, no voice intonation, very difficult to get humor or sarcasm across.

I honestly believe that if most of us were sitting together having that beer and talking about our Packers that we would all have a hell of a good time. Jousting about our idea's of what Gute should or shouldn't do would be loads of fun.

If you read my comment, it said You seemed to be taking comments personally, not writing personal comments, big difference. Maybe defensive should of been used instead of personally.

Point taken Ross, the problem with this form of communication is the difficulty in expressing humor or sarcasm. Most definitely "lynch mob" can be taken as a terrible expression. That of course was not my intention.

BTW I took no offense in any of your posts and thoroughly enjoyed the discussion. I hope you realize that i am just a life long Packers / NFL fan. We are all entitled to our opinion of what Gute should do.

Keep up the great work.

P.S. I still wish we could add a Munoz or Thomas protecting Aaron Rodgers :)

That's the two words that really shook me as well Ross. Nitschke wanting to form a "lynch mob" was over the line I thought. Now after reading his and Scully's comments after, it appears both were simply "having fun" for the purposes of attention. I guess all's well and ends well.

To me, at #12's age, I'm starting to feel like a pro-bowl caliber TE is the equivalent of picking a premium position. NE loses Gronk, and they are immediately sniffing around the best TE on the market. Tell me its not a premium position. And maybe MLF's offensive system really makes it a bit more of a premium position as well. And I think while Fant and Hock are very different players, they both have Pro Bowl potential written all over them. I love these guys, and I would drop back more than 6 spots for fear of losing out on both.

I'm not sure Hock will be there at #12, let alone #30.
Ross doesn't think much of Smith at TE.
I seem to remember at least one Iowan here at Cheesehead TV who was pretty down on Fant (please pardon my lapses of memory; maybe that person, or two, could repost if it's not too much trouble).
After those three, I don't know if there are any sleepers at TE to be had in later rounds.
So the tight end position with regard to the draft has me dazed and confused, and my head hurts.
One thing about Hock is that we seem to get both a blocker and receiver in one guy.

This Iowan is bullish on Fant. Truly elite measurables, multiple years of production, including last year when defenses were really looking for him. You have to remember, Iowa had no credible threats at WR last year. His route running is not as crisp as Hock's and he won't wow you with the pancake blocks like Hock, but he is just smooth when catching the ball and he has the speed to make defenses pay if they sleep on him.

S,
Both Iowa TE's are good. I have made my choice of Fant well known. I am sure either would be good in green and gold but I truly believe Fant could be a generational player at TE. You are right there was some poster on here who claimed Fant was a drama queen or something like that. I asked him to explain as I really wanted to know if there is something we should know about Fant that might make me change my opinion. Not sure if he ever answered and explained. Wish he would!

That was more than likely me Swisch. First, Hock and Fant both won't be around by the time the Pack selects at 30. Fant is closer to a WR than a TE. He does stretch the field better then Hock. But he doesn't block near as well as Hock. He really slipped late in the season at Iowa for a few reasons. He started to bitch that he wasn't getting the ball like Hockenson was. Even his brother was tweeting against the Iowa staff, blaming them for not involving Fant more. The tension was there between Fant and HC Ferentz and OC Ferentz. But HC Ferentz didn't throw Fant under the bus when the media asked why Fant didn't get the ball more. He wouldn't do anything to hurt one of his players. Well Hock was getting the job done, in more ways then Fant was. And they needed the blocking for the run game. Hockenson is an all around football player who gives it his all every play. Fant at times just goes through the motions. As I have said here, he is a bit of a diva. That said, I feel he will have a good career in the NFL, but he also needs to think of the team more than himself. Maturity should get him there. But he could just as easily turn into another Dez Bryant/Antonio Brown.

Between the two of them, if the chips were down, I would want Hockenson on my team. A TE with his abilities, size, speed, hands and smarts doesn't come around very often. IF Gute grabs him at 12, he more than likely will have a guy who could play for the team for 10 years. And he is young. And in today's league, the TE position is more important than ever.

Thanks much, Donster, Mark, and Knock for the observations, insights and opinions. I appreciate the enjoyable discussion.
I'm thinking that Hock at #12 would be a great pick as the complete package at tight end; whereas maybe Fant at #30 if he's still available and has expressed to the Packers enthusiasm as a blocker.
If Hock is to tight ends as Josh Allen is to edge rushers -- a good possibility as a perennial pro-bowler -- then get him!
It is hard to think of the tight end as a less premium position than most others. In any case, a pro-bowler at any position is the way to go.

Out of these picks, the only one I don't like is Polite at #44. I believe O-line (RG and RT) and TE need to be addressed before another EDGE rusher is selected at #44. As stated in another thread here, I am willing to let Polite go to another team while waiting for him to drop to the 4th round and taking him with pick #114 (first 4th round pick for GB).

I wouldn't be making this argument were it not for the FA signings GB recently completed.

You could still make the case for either. Now let me tell you why I think your wrong. I think the ILBs are just as qualified a little later. In my latest RAS mock. You'll see I took 2 DL based on FA loss/Replacement ,2 ILBs who will be good, 3 OL who can all end up starters, 2 Safeties- Need. and 1 good RB. I did not take a Wr/Te. We found Allison. WR can be a FA. I left TE off because of Holes!

A month away from the draft, it's time to put away silly analysis and get down to basics:
(1) No one with the first name of Aaron or Josh.
(2) No one with the last name of Smith or Jones.
(3) No one with hyphenated names, or more than two names altogether.
(4) No one from Alabama (mostly because I don't like this football program for hogging the spotlight).
(5) At least one player from Boise State (Why should Dallas have all the fun?).
(6) At least one player related to a former Packer (e.g. Nasir Adderley)
I think all of us can agree that these are the kind of essential considerations and savvy moves that will have us back in the Super Bowl by 2020.

You draft players that can strengthen your roster and that helps win football games. Taking the best player no matter what is how you build a deep talented core. If It is, lineman and a TE in the first round fine if it’s DT and edge that’s fine. Get players that aren’t projects and keep amassing talent to compete. Don’t fall in love with a player and skip over better players. Bad teams do that, Gutekunst is smart and steady and going to get more talent on this roster.

IMO the Pack has too many other holes to waste #12 on OL, and day 3 is soon enough to look for BPA on OL. (I am bullish that one solid OL will emerge from among Siragusa, McCray, Patrick, and Light).

Solid but Thornhill will be in the high second round as a FS.

Who is going to run the ball ? Two running backs on the roster, one of which has never played a full season.

Wowzers. If that is how our first six wins up we will be in business this year. I can't warm up to either Hock or Fant making it past the teens, but Oliver would be a nice horse to add to the DL.

Oh yeah...another mock that fails to address the situation on the offensive line. Like last year...we need a RT and we draft a guard who doesn't want to play football anymore. Who blew the scouting report on that one? Howard has been projected to be a guard at the next level so why would you take him before you get a real tackle? Polite is a one trick pony as a pass rusher...I'd rather have an OT in his draft spot.

We have an aging Hall of Fame QB and often injured Right tackle ,but we're not addressing the O line in early rounds. Spriggs ,while slightly improving is not a starting T. Oliver is a great pick ,but why draft a position of strength . Remember that Smith is a large OLB and can move inside and play end in some schemes. Love Wilson's draft of Hock, Risner, and Adderley. Add Miles Sanders from Penn St and we're ready to show who's boss on Sept 5 !

Just ran through the same setup as Ross, here's what I came up with:
#12- Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
#30- TJ Hockenson, TE, Iowa
#44- Juan Thornhill, S, Virginia
#75- Michael Dieter, OL, Wisconsin
#114- Devin Singletary, RB, FAU
#118- Justin Hollins, Edge, Oregon
#150- Ben Burr-Kirven, LB, Washington
#185- Derrick Baity, CB, Kentucky
#194- Armon Watts, DT, Arkansas
#226- Preston Williams, WR, Colorado St

School: Iowa | Year: Sophomore

You'd be hard-pressed to find a scout who doesn't love Hockenson's game. A ferocious blocker with good hands and superb route-running skills, he's viewed as a complete tight end. Reliable, sturdy, proven -- he'd make new Packers coach Matt LaFleur (and, more importantly, Aaron Rodgers) very happy
