Draft Talk / Re: Is the 1st round coming into focus?
« Last post by dannobanano on Today at 09:19:41 AM »
I was reading Mayock this morning and he was talking about Marcus Davenport.

He believes he is a first round talent and could be in play when the Packers pick at #14. Mayock thinks Davenport has tremendous upside, but that he is very very raw at this point and would not fit well into a complicated scheme. Instead he needs a simplified scheme/responsibilities that will allow him to just play, and play fast, rather than have to analyze/diagnose/think about where and what he's supposed to do each play. In other words, he's a developmental project that may/may not blossom in time.

Honestly, I'm not sure how that type of player would fit in Pettine's plans?

It is said that Pettine's scheme is "multiple" (code for complex), but that he can simplify (dumb it down) roles to take advantage of players strengths and minimize their shortcomings.

This whole pre-draft process Davenport has been talked about (mostly) in glowing terms by media/scouts. I've watched game film and highlight clips. I'm still wondering if he's the next Terrell Suggs? Or, Margus Hunt 2.0?

With a month to the draft I think the top 12 have basically come together as a group (subject to change by the minute). Their will be some trading around by teams, but the players will remain the same. The first 12 drafted will be,

 1 - Sam Darnold/QB/USC

2 - Josh Allen/QB/Wyoming

3 - Josh Rosen/QB/UCLA

4 - Bradley Chubb/DL/North Carolina State

5 - Saquon Barkley/RB/Penn State

6 - Quenton Nelson/G/Notre Dame

7 - Minkah Fitzpatrick/DB/Alabama

8 - Denzel Ward/CB/Ohio State

9 - Tremaine Edmunds/LB/Virginia Tech

10 - Roquan Smith/LB/Georgia

11 - Baker Mayfield/QB/Oklahoma

12 - Derwin James/S/Florida State

That would put the Redskins on the clock at 13 and I have thought for awhile that their pick will either be Da'Ron Payne/DL/ Alabama or  Vita Vea/DL/Washington.

Which brings us to the Packers. In all likelihood their selection will come from one of these players unless the Packers were to trade from this pick (up or down).

Da'Ron Payne/DL/ Alabama
Vita Vea/DL/Washington
Harold Landry/EDGE/ Boston College
Marcus Davenport/EDGE/UTSA
Leighton Vander Esch/LB/Boise State
Josh Jackson/CB/Iowa
Mike McGlinchey/OT/Notre Dame
Calvin Ridley/WR/Alabama
Rashaan Evans/LB/Alabama   I added that one for you Hands  :)

As you can see the Packers are going to land a very good player in the first round this year and I would be happy with any of those additions. As some have pointed out here already and I think this exercise points it out, is that the Packers have the luxury of trading back 3 or 4 spots and still getting a player of similar value well adding more draft capital.

#Colts GM Chris Ballard says this draft has 8 elite non-QB prospects, then there is a tier drop.

For now I'm still standing by the 12 listed. The media in their rush to break something helps spread the smokescreens, but the first 12 off the board is pretty well set. IMO.  Farther proof is the number of GM's in the top 10 willing to tradedown, but not beyond the 12th pick. I also believe the Packers are really hoping Landry gets to 14 for them, if he is off the board I believe they will be very open to a trade back.

If they pull off that bounty this year the Packers draft crew will be dancing in the streets of GB this time next week. Nice draft.

#Chiefs GM Brett Veach said the draft board went from a few hundred players at the beginning of the process to "around 160" now.

Chiefs board will have a few more names than most teams.

I don't think it is out of the question that no one wants him.

Cincy or the Ravens would take him. Maybe Oakland. All three seem to like outcasts, and the Ravens and Raiders could use a WR to help bolster their offenses. But RT, you could be correct. A guy who seems to have regressed as an offensive threat, but who wants to get paid like a star. Also, although he had indicated repeatedly he would never play for a reduced/reworked contract, once he was released, suddenly he was willing to take a pay cut. This guy is bad news. Time to pull out that 12 foot Hungarian.

I used only players that are known qualifiers in historical likeness of measurables and testing or players that the Packers have used an allotted visit on. It is a given that their are many other players of interest that we have no information on, but I have stayed with only the known. I hope some will find this useful.
