Packers Select OT Jason Spriggs in 2016 NFL Draft, Round Two

After a trade to move up nine spots (yes you read that correctly), the Green Bay Packers used pick #48 to select Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana

 

MEASURABLES:

6'6", 301lbs, 4.94 40yd, 115″ broad jump, 4.44 20-yd shuttle, 31 bench press reps.

 

CAREER NOTES: 

Spriggs was a four year starter and team captain for the Hoosiers. Played left tackle in a zone blocking spread offense. Was named first team All-American by the Football Writers Association of America and 3rd team by the Associated Press. Gave up only two sacks in 431 pass attempts. Sprigggs graded out as the Gold Medal winner among linemen at the "Underwear Olympics," otherwise known as the NFL Combine. 

 

NFL.COM DRAFT PROFILE

 

SCOUTING REPORT: 

CBS SPORTS: Steady run and pass blocker. Has enough set-up quickness and lateral mobility to beat rushers around the corner, showing smooth body control and natural athleticism in space. Has the temperament needed to match up vs. fierce pass rushers. Rather than maul defenders at the point of attack, Spriggs relies on his quickness and agility. He showed the quickness and balance at Senior Bowl practices that scouts have appreciated about his game in the past, while also flashing some nastiness, looking to pancake opponents when he could.

Struggles at times to sustain blocks due to average upper body strength and pad level. He needs to improve the timing and force of his punch in order to better control defenders.

 
COMMENTARY: 
 
The Trade: Packers trade their second-round pick (No. 57) along with a fourth-round pick (No. 125) and seventh-round pick (No. 248) to the Indianapolis Colts.
 
Ted Thompson has to REALLY love a player to move up in the draft to get him, so you know how the Packers feel about Spriggs. Seattle had been rumored as a landing spot for Spriggs for quite some time, as were the Bears, so kudos to Trader Ted for one-upping them. Spriggs was a four year starter at Indiana and may very well be the most athletic offensive tackle in this draft. He needs to improve his functional strength, and will have at least a year to do so at Green Bay before he might be expected to play full time.
 
I'm fully on board with nabbing an offensive lineman with the upcoming free agency status of four Packers OL, but I wasn't expecting it here. In the CheesheheadTv Draft guide, I had Spriggs rated as the #6 offensive tackle. All but my #5. Shon Coleman, have already been drafted. From a value standpoint, it fits.
 
Wouldn't be shocked to see the Packers move DBAK or BULAGA to guard in a year, with Spriggs at LT and either Lang or Sitton not re-signed.
 
Here was my evaluation of Spriggs from the guide:
 

In a Nutshell: A former tight end, Spriggs is a fluid, athletic big man fit strictly for a zone blocking scheme. As a run blocker, he doesn’t show much power or ability to finish blocks. In pass protection, he has an efficient kick slide but can get knocked off balance and is very susceptible to inside moves. As you would expect, he pulls or gets to the second level easily, but he’s spotted whiffing on blocks way too often.

NFL Combine: If there were a “Best in Shorts” award at the combine, Spriggs would take the OL competition in a landslide. He was first in the 40-yard dash, first in the broad jump, second in the 20-yard shuttle and fourth in the bench press. While there’s no denying his athletic prowess, his tape shows a myriad of inadequacies he will have to work on.

Why would you say that? The guy was the 5th or 6th best OT in the entire draft, and that was BEFORE the combine. He blew away every other O-Lineman in just about every drill and put up 31 Reps on the bench...WITH those long arms ( 34 1/8 ) which is something. Most had him as a low 1st to high 2nd. It was huge need with 2017 coming and we stole him from the Bears.

Man, so far the Pack have nailed my listing of need priority.

Next up would be LB (OLB... or perhaps a big strong safety who could be converted to ILB)

Let's see what they do next.

Well, that's 3 for 3.

#1 DL (NT)
#2 OL (OT)
#3 LB (OLB)

Guessing, but I think tomorrow probably brings another DL, TE, and ILB (could potentially be a big SS for conversion); a scatback type RB could be a possibility given the value Ted places on that player, but I don't think it's a real necessity. I also wouldn't be surprised to see a trade back in oder to pick-up an additional pick somewhere.

That alone for me means this is a good pick. I really love this pick actually. He is really athletic and much stronger than people think. Hopefully gets coached well to work on his weaknesses, and maybe this is the starting LT in a year or so.
So far, 2 solid picks with upside. Hope Ted can keep this up. I am not worried about MLB. Would rather see another good DT.

Next year they lose Bakhtiari they will receive at least a 3rd or 4th round in compensation.

This pick shows you what the Packers think of Bakhtiari.

He led the team in penalties last year (11) and as we all know, is frequently called for holding. Yes, he was missed in the 3 games he was injured late last season. He's been solid and good value for a 4th rounder, but is he really a franchise left tackle?

This pick tells me that Ted is not willing to pay the ridiculous price tag that the market demands for a starting left tackle. Perhaps Ted would rather let Bakhtiari walk (I could totally see the Bears or Vikings going after him) and using the savings to re-sign Lang and Sitton.

If I'm David Bakhtiari, I'd feel like I was just put on notice.

Yes, it's on him now. The Packers are usually pretty good about looking at the whole body of work over the previous contract's length (in this case 4 years). I don't know if those 4 years are compelling enough for Ted to open up his wallet and dig deep.

I'll credit Bakhtiari that he's also been quite durable himself, rarely missing any games. I just can't see them spending a 2nd round pick on a left tackle and then bringing Bakhtiari back so Spriggs can sit and watch. At the very least, Bulaga is good to miss 3-4 games, so Spriggs will get some playing time at some point.

It's not going to cost the Pack much to resign the two guards. They are no longer on their Rookie contracts. They are both getting older and might get between 1 to 2 mil increase in pay each. At the most the two of them together would hit the cap for 4 mil.

OK, so I worded my statement a little wrong. If the Pack currently have 13 mil in cap space after paying Sitton and Lang together this year 12 mil. If they both get a 1 mil dollars per year increase in pay then they would hit the cap for 14 mil leaving 11 mil of cap space. In my mind if we currently have no issue paying them their current pay and they only increase 1 mil each then it's cheep to resign them.

Don't have to read any comments. Excellent move Ted. And didn't give up too much.

Never thought we'd be able to get him after the first.

My bad. Evan was right. I should have kept it on the DL.

I like this pick. You knew at some point they were going to address the O-line, so this pick isn't really shocking in that respect. They clearly had a high grade on this guy and decided to go up and get him.

Did i use the word bust? Or am i sitting watching the draft on the fence about the pick only to see him on the wrong end of a highlight tape? I should be encouraged? Urban Meyer said he was a top 3 offensive lineman in the Big 10, so that means hes going to be a home run for us by your logic? I apologize for not being able to get the image of Sam Barrington botching that wheel route against Marshawn Lynch out of my head in that NFCCG the year before last. But maybe he picked up a step after the foot injury that kept him out all season last year.

I know. All other players at this point in the draft are surefire perennial pro bowlers who will dominate the league for the next 15 years. Only Ted picked the one bust. Sure. I think you were hanging out too many times with Tunsil and used his bong...

Kinda weird that the GB-PG 2nd round mock draft from earlier today had Spriggs going 48 to Indy. Right time. Wrong destination.

Not sure this spells trouble for Bakh as Ted always drafts LTs for his line. They are generally there in college because they are the best lineman on the team. Would Spriggs translate well to guard too? Meanwhile TT gonna get another chance at Billings. Like Last year two top picks at a position of need. Redundant, but you cannot get enough big uglys. We won't even need any ILBs.

Fortunately for GB Grigson is the biggest of idiots. Luck should refuse to play until something more is done about that OLine.

I wonder if they were going Vigil until he disappeared one pick earlier. We'll have to see about Fackrell. He should rent space in Clay's world, because that's where he should be for the next year.

Far from a beast, but I love his football IQ and awareness. He's limited in the athletic department, but what he lacks there he makes up for with smarts and technique. He looks natural in zone.

Lol, I thought about coming in saying I like him better than Perry, but I'm going to let that sit for a while.

EDIT: Perfect example of High IQ and smarts with little athleticism to offer. He reads the route, jumps it, but can't change direction quick enough and it led to an easy TD.

Very good and necessary pick by Ted. Remember, basically, these are kids still maturing (Kenny Clark is just 20) so let the coaches work on perfecting their techniques.
