Your Dream #1
« on: January 07, 2017, 09:02:39 AM »
Going into Wild-Card weekend and not knowing the results or complete draft order, pick your favorite of the 2017 class and why.

My pick O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama.

Adding a play-maker at TE who is already an accomplished blocker would create years of mismatches to come, especially with Rodgers at the helm. I would re-sign Cook and Lacy which would provide interchangeable TE's or play together, leaving Lacy and Montgomery as our 1-2 punch backfield. With #2 I would go corner and I think some good ones will be available.
What you say?

At this snapshot moment, I like one of these as a Packers first round pick. My opinion can (and probably will) change as the draft draws closer and we get more information.
1st choice  WR Corey Davis W.Michigan
2nd choice CB Cordrea Tankersley Clemson
3rd choice  OLB Takkarist McKinley UCLA

1st - Demarcus Walker (OLB/Edge rusher)

2nd - Alvin Kamara (RB)

3rd - Chidobe Awuzie (CB)

4th - Cole Hikutini (TE)

4th-a (comp-IMO) Amba Etta-Tawo (WR)

4th - Cole Hikutini (TE)

4th-a (comp-IMO) Amba Etta-Tawo (WR)

Awuzie is one of my favorite prospects in this draft.  I think he's going to likely go earlier then the 3rd unless he bombs is athletic testing.  He's a great all around CB (in coverage, run support and blitzing).  I was at the Michigan/ Colorado game this year and he was the best player on either team IMO.  If he played on a higher profile team he'd be a lot more hyped. 

Love those first 3 picks.  Walker is one of the best edge rushers in this draft (I believe he lead FBS in sacks.  Kamara is a duel threat RB who's got wheels.

If this is dreaming time, I'm going for Myles Garrett. Reality, I'd like Malik McDowell to slide to us. Otherwise, OJ Howard or Corey Davis!

I assume you mean dream pick that the Packers have a reasonable chance to get.

While I would love to get Howard as a complete tight end or Njoku as a Calvin Johnson type receiver they are luxuries on an offense that puts up 30 points .   Getting a pass rusher like Harris or Mc Kinley would do more to improve the weakest area of the team

Clemson WR Mike Williams as Jordys eventual replacement or Dalvin Cook, who would be a Marshall Faulk in this offense.

Williams looked amazing last night with the way he went up and got some of those balls.  Clemson doesn't win that game without him.

I really think we're gonna need another CB... my dream pick would be Sidney Jones IV. Jones is 6' and a stud CB, which we could use in our secondary. This draft is deep with quality CBs.

Although I wouldn't be surprised with a edge rusher in the first. I don't have a favorite there, but could see that happening.

I really like OJ Howard, but doubt GB will draft a TE in the first.

Pass rusher is still at the top of my list.

If one of......... (in order of preference)
Solomon Thomas / Stanford
Demarcus Walker / FSU
Charles Harris / Mizzu

..............are still on the board when GB picks, I hope Ted takes one of them.

You know, (recently) Missouri just keeps producing successful pass rushers practically year after year.

2011 - Aldon Smith
2013 - Sheldon Richardson
2014 - Kony Ealy
2015 - Marcus Golden, Shane Ray

If Thomas and Walker are gone when it's Ted's turn, I'd have no problem with taking Charles Harris.

TJ Watt...

I know it's a little high to take him in the first but he's a leader and plays with emotion.  Think he'll develop into an all pro.

Maybe TT can engineer a trade back and still get him.  Rated as a mid 2 right now but he may rise.

The further we fall down the draft board and the more I watch our secondary, the more I want Desmond King. 

King will fall down draft boards throughout the testing process.  Others will have more length or speed.  Potential.  I'm afraid that P word is what brought us two marginal at best CB's that Ted used prime draft picks on.  Some draft "experts" want to see King at FS.  Why?  Because he hits like one. 

King is a football player that can do EVERYTHING.  Micah Hyde with much more athleticism and a touch more strength.  People are going to doubt King's ability to match up on the boundary with faster receivers.  I'm not concerned.  Gunter ran 4.64 and 4.66 in his 40. 
I'm right and everyone else does not have an opinion worth talking about.

I agree. King is number one on my wish list. He's a pure corner with great technique and ball skills. With you on his speed as well, I actually think he'll run pretty well, low 4.5s. Fast enough with great recognition and anticipation will always be better than just fast. Just like you can't teach speed, you can't teach instincts. Some guys just have that innate feel for the game and he has it.

Green Bay has a history of drafting Iowa players, so the chances are good if he's available. I personally, think he'll go before guys like Jalen Tabor and Sidney Jones. I don't think many of the top DBs are going to overshadow his athleticism. Humphrey might be the only one who really separates from the rest of the prospects.

Gunter is actually pretty slow. He can play over the top technique and still get beat by a fast WR. His lack of speed lets QBs throw their WRs open more easily. I like him, but his lack of speed is an issue. Seriously, if he ran in the 4.5s he'd be a much better cover corner. He lacks deep speed and recovery speed. If he gets beat at the line, he's burnt toast. His speed really limits what he can do.
