Danno's Mock V-1.0
« on: January 27, 2018, 05:46:45 PM »
1/27/18
OverTheCap has GB projected to receive 4 compensatory picks. [ 3rd round (1). 5th round (3)]

Hoped for Free Agent releases/restructures/signings:

Released: Randall Cobb (save $9.5M)
Restructured: Jordy Nelson/extend (save $5M), Clay Matthews/extend (save $4M)
Signings: Davon House[GB] (CB), Trey Burton[Philly] (TE), Zach Brown[WASH] (ILB)
 
2018 Packer draft Version 1.0

1st Round: Josh Jackson; CB; Iowa (possibly the best CB in the draft)
2nd Round: Lorenzo Carter; OLB; Georgia (Kind of reminds me of Leonard Floyd of Chicago)
3rd Round: Royce Freeman; RB; Oregon (Williams/Jones are nice stories, but Packers need a bigger back that can be a home run threat. Royce [230lbs] fits the bill and is also a dangerous receiver)
3rd Round: (comp) Hercules Mata'afa; OLB; Washington St (Better quality of depth at OLB. Bye bye Fackrell)
4th Round: Dalton Schultz; TE; Stanford (Finally a dual purpose TE.........blocker & receiver)
5th Round: Jake Weineke; WR; South Dakota St. (Dallas Goedert gets all the headlines, but this kid had 16 TD's in 2017 to Goederts 7 TD's. I've read where people compare him to Eric Decker)
5th Round: (comp) Kurt Benkert; QB; UVA (His performance at the Senior Bowl may have just raised his draft stock.......we'll see)
5th Round: (comp) Greg Senat; OT; Wagner (Small school sleeper)
5th Round: (comp) Skyler Phillips; OG; Idaho St. (Another small school sleeper)
6th Round: Jack Cichy; ILB; U-Wis (Past injury is a concern, but if he's healthy he fits very nicely with Pettine's football philosophy)
7th Round: Ray Ray McCloud; WR/KR; Clemson (Jack of all trades WR/PR/CB. Averaged 9.26 yds per punt return over 3 years.)

Just wanting to bump this, and hopefully see more mock drafts appearing.  :) 

I enjoy them, yours included/especially.  :) 

Not sure cutting Cobb without signing a WR, and without drafting one until 5th round, is a great approach to having a good offense, though....

I want to improve at WR, not just get even less talented.

No DL?  So you're going more heavily on LBers to create more pass rush/pressure? Just wondering. And seven offensive picks, and four defensive picks? I'm interested in your reasoning for this particular draft bias toward the offense.

I think enough pieces are in place for DL, ricky.
They can probably resign Dial at a reasonable price if they want. He's not much of a pass rusher, but he's solid against the run.
I'm crossing my fingers that Montravious Adams makes that year-1 to year-2 improvement. At any rate, he'd be no worse than a rookie (IMO).
Daniels/Clark/Lowry are a solid DL base.

Resign House @ CB (I also like Rahsaan Melvin of INDY),and bring in a veteran ILB (Zach Brown, or someone?)........those two would make 6 additions to the defense.

So total additions would be:
Defense - 6
Offense - 8

I don't see that as bias. Especially since TT heavily leaned defense, at the expense of offense, over the last 3-4 years.
