Ranking the Green Bay Packers Draft Needs: Top to Bottom

B.J. Raji

As the draft approaches ever so slowly, it’s hard to think of topics to write about without being repeptivie.  Most guys I know or read that do mocks have published their 3rd or 4th version despite no more meaningful football being played by the prospects in question.  Individual prospect profiling is a very helpful and very time consuming activity, but not something that I’m interested nor have the time to do.  Pushing the draft back into May is part of what every believes to be the league’s attempt to keep itself in the sports news cycle 12 months out of the year.  They are succeeding but they are making things repetitive.

What I’m going to do here is something I don’t plan on doing again.  Admittedly it’s a play off of the off season needs piece you can read here and the post-free agency audit that I provided here, but it is different.  I’m going to rank the need level of every single non-special team position on the roster leading up to May’s draft:

1. Safety- It would be hard for me to explain myself if I didn’t pick safety first, wouldn’t it?  The Packers have  actually taken a step backwards from last season if that is even possible.  Most, including myself, would argue that letting starting safety MD Jennings walk is actually addition by subtraction but it is a subtraction nonetheless.  So far the team has done nothing to address it’s weakest position of a year ago, and considering that the only move made was allowing Jennings to sign with Chicago, this remains the top area of need heading into the draft.

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Does Flynn Signing Signal Real Change?

When the signing of QB Matt Flynn was announced this week I tweeted out the following picture:

Matt Flynn

Matt Flynn celebrates during the Packers epic comeback victory against the Dallas Cowboys during the 2013 season.

I shared the picture for a lot of reasons.  First of all, it’s one of my favorite photos of a Green Bay Packer.  I know that it’s from a mostly meaningless regular season game during an 8-7-1 season by a backup QB but it’s special.  The emotion that Flynn is showing is why I love football, and why I really like him as a player.  It’s not arrogant, it’s not being done to show up the Dallas Cowboys (making him a better man than I) it’s just joy and excitement.

The other reason I tweeted it was because I was excited!  I am excited.  I’m excited because I think this might mean a slight change in the way the organization does things.  Ted Thompson has always been very steady about the way he does his business. Some would say he’s bull-headed and his detractors call him “stubborn”.  Thompson built an elite program in Green Bay.  There is no question about that.  The team has been the playoffs in 5 consecutive seasons, and will be favored to do at least that much again.  They’ve also won three consecutive division championships.

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Post Free Agency Off Season Needs Audit

Mike McCarthy

Immediately following the Super Bowl, I outlined what I perceived to be the Green Bay Packers’ needs moving into the 2014 season here.  Now that it seems clear the team will not re-sign or sign another player that projects as an “impact” player, it’s time to see where these positions stand heading into May’s draft.  I’ll report the additions to the team at that position since the Feb. 7 article and then some solutions to the problem if there still is one.  If they select a player that’s not a part of the “solutions”, in this writer’s eyes the problem was not adequately addressed:

1. Safety- I’m not exactly able to start this week’s column off with a bang.  Despite a what appeared to be a bumper crop of useful players in the free agency pool at the position the Packers did nothing.  In fact, they did less than nothing.  Green Bay allowed one of their starters M.D. Jennings to walk and join the Chicago Bears.  this doesn’t really bother me, but the fact that the team has not added anyone to replace him does.  The Packers are either going to entrust the position opposite Morgan Burnett with 2nd year pro Micah Hyde or put all of their eggs in the basket of a rookie.

Additions: none

Possible Solutions: HaHa Clinton-Dix, Calvin Pryor, Jimmie Ward, Deone Buchanon, Terrence Brooks, Craig Loston, Kenny Ladler

From the Benches: Hyde Your Kids

From the Benches Packers Podcast

The guys are back with special guest Jason Perone, who is pinch hitting in place of Ryan for this week. They start off the show by discussing the news that friend of the show, North Dakota State QB Brock Jensen has a private workout lined up with the Packers. After Ross gets through that discussion, the boys move on to discuss John Kuhn’s situation, and why the Packers did not go after a veteran safety.

The big discussion of the night involves the new role of Packers CB/S Micah Hyde and what his role could be in the defense going forward and whether or not that is something the Packers should be interested in going forward.

There is a discussion that follows as the boys adopt a Packer for the upcoming season, continue their draft series discussing some cornerbacks, and go through the draft class that was brought in with PTRN’s first mock draft of the year.

Finally, the boys end the show with Jacob talking about the criticism of Mike McCarthy in the show’s signature segment of “You’re gonna want to cut that.”

PackersTalk.com NFL Mock Draft 1.0

ted thompson Green Bay Packers Super Bowl

The 4 most junior writers at PackersTalk.com got “together” this week and rotated picks for the first 100 selections in the upcomign NFL draft.  Jacob Westendorf, Ian Hanley, Matt Bove and I played “GM” for 8 positions in each round.  Ian was fortunate enough to make the first 3 selections for Green Bay and I made the final, compensatory selection.  The results are below along with analysis of each Packers selection.  The initial at the end of the selection indicates which writer made the selection.  Jacob Westendorf became otherwise engaged so super-sub John Rehor stepped in with his own hard hitting draft analysis:
