Final Best Guess MOCK with Some Trades (as TED Does)
« on: April 26, 2017, 04:32:07 PM »
So night before draft here we go...

Round 1 Pick 29: Taco Charlton, DE/OLB, Michigan  ( Excellent Compliment to Clay and Nick... in my humble opinion)

"Really, really talented player. You won't always see it on every play so that is going to be a coach's job to get that out of him. Rushers with his size and athleticism are hard to find and they usually go very early in the draft." -- AFC executive

Round 2 Pick 29 - TRADED for: RD3-Pick-3 , RD-4 Pick-4, RD4-Pick-10

Round 3 Pick 3 (TRADED): Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee ( Could be the 3 down back we need and also nice to have with Monty and Christine)

Ascending, competitive runner who has flashed explosive NFL talent at various times over the last two seasons. A committed runner with excellent balance who finds yardage that isn't blocked for him. While he has never logged 20 carries in a single game, he has the talent to play on all three downs if he can prove his durability.

Round 3 Pick 29: Sidney Jones, CB, Washington ( A Gamble a bit here but worth it I think as he could hit pay dirt on this ONE)

Jones is a "casino cornerback" who has the ball skills and instincts to tilt the odds in his favor when quarterbacks look his way. His toughness and desire to make plays on the ball are remarkably similar to his friend and off-season workout buddy, Marcus Peters. Jones has lockdown corner talent but unfortunately, teams will have to wrestle with his draft positioning as there is no guarantee that Jones can come back with the same quickness and speed as before.

Round 4 Pick 4 (TRADED): Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson ( Would be nice for Daniels to have to mentor and add to rotation)

Athletic big man. Shows good movement skills for interior lineman. Operates in twisting, stunting defensive front at Clemson. Good lateral movement and agility creates problems for reach-blocking offensive linemen. Comes off the ball ready to punch and land first with his hands.

Round 4 Pick 10 (TRADED ): Nico Siragusa, OG, San Diego State  ( And TT gets Lang's replacement )

Compact, girthy frame with thickly muscled arms. Low center of gravity with adequate hip bend to unlock power. Strong core. Able to scoop under defenders and root them out. Drive blocker with strength to win individual battles. Better-than-expected maneuverability when asked to pull.

Round 4 Pick 27: Blair Brown, ILB, Ohio ( motor, motor , motor and TT likes LB especially for ST )

Downhill linebacker always looking to make plays in the opponent's living room. Very instinctive. Key reader who trusts his eyes and is quick to pull the trigger and rocket into gaps if he sees an opening. Generally plays ahead of blocks. Possesses an urgent, physical mindset. Extremely efficient tackle finisher who very rarely lets one get away.

Round 5 Pick 28: Jarron Jones, DT, Notre Dame (A TT like Gamble here ... BOOM or Bust with this one)

Former high school basketball player with exciting athletic traits. Able to pursue with quickness in space. Has foot quickness to change direction and extend his tackle radius. Arms are like tentacles that go on and on.

Round 5 Pick 38 (COMP): Jadar Johnson, SS, Clemson  ( nice pickup for late round and possible replacement for Micah)

Johnson looks the part of an NFL defensive back with a tapered, athletic frame. Johnson's best attribute may simply be his athleticism. He is a legitimate NFL-caliber athlete, showing easy movement skills, including the agility to drop down and cover receivers in the slot, as well as very good straight-line speed.

Round 6 Pick 28: Noble Nwachukwu, DE, West Virginia ( probably a LB in Doms scheme )

Might be considered a "tweener" in some circles and certainly lacks the length teams look for along the edge, but his quickness off the snap and plus motor could allow him to play despite size limitations. He's athletic enough to play a stand-up role on base packages and then rush with his hand down in sub-packages. Can compete for a backup role early and has the talent to become an eventual starter.

Round 7 Pick 29: Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M ( TT cant resist gotta get a WR)

Long and tall, Reynolds is a dangerous vertical threat thanks to his ball tracking and ball skills over eye-popping deep speed. Reynolds is a menace in the red-zone and can mismatch smaller cornerbacks in the air.


Well that is what I got... and would be pretty happy if we got this set of players

Nice draft.

My only question is why would the Bears be interested in making draft day trades with us and giving up so much?

OK, so there seems to be some concern about who will replace Lang. I read on another Packers related site that Spriggs is being groomed to be the starting LT, and Bakhtiari will be moved to RT, which they called his  "natural position" on the line. They went so far as to say that if Bakhtiari is an All-Pro at LT, he would be All World at guard. So, if that is the plan, is it less likely that the Packers will go OL before the fourth round or so? Why no link? Because the site had some very harsh words about PC a few years ago, and those links have been deleted in the past.

Now, this is the first time I've heard this particular scenario for the OL. But it does seem to make some sense. TT doesn't move up in the draft to get someone without having a plan for them. And it would mean it would be less likely that Barclay would be the replacement for Lang. And anything that would prevent that particular nightmare in the making would be welcome.

Forgot who was still available but the trade that was proposed was the second one , there was 6 teams offering to trade up , but the offer from bears was the second best offer , Carolina had the best offer , but had to take the Bears..

And thanks, I really thought this worked out great some reaches I thought Ted would make as well as a couple of gambles as well ..but I would be damn happy with this one ,,, one can dream .

McShay just mocked Alvin Kamara to us in the first round today.... can't imagine he plummets to the 3rd.
