Green Bay Packers: 7-Round Mock Draft with Trades

This mock draft was done on Fanspeak with Matt Miller’s big board, updated on January 30th. The plan was to accept every trade that was offered, choosing what I thought was the best offer out of the options.

Trades:

Packers get: 20th overall (1st round), 52nd overall (2nd round), 122nd overall (4th round)

Steelers get: 12th overall (1st round)

The Steelers used this trade to jump the Dolphins and Redskins, both QB needy teams, to take their future QB in Daniel Jones.

Packers get: 91st overall (3rd round), 130th overall (4th round), 167th overall (5th round), 202nd overall (6th round)

Chargers get: 75th overall (3rd round)

There was really no point for the Chargers to offer this trade, but I was not going to say no to this offer. The way the board was falling, going from pick 75 to 91 was not a big deal and I picked up an extra three picks in the process.

Packers get: 119th overall (4th round) and 156th overall (5th round)

Browns get: 114th overall (4th round)

This was another move that I was pleased to make. Adding an extra pick to move a few spots was an easy move.



Not only did the trades work in my favor, but this draft could not have gone any better than it did. I was able to address several needs by finding six potential day one starters at those needed positions.

  • Burns @ OLB
    • At 6’5″, Burns only weighs in at 236 lbs. The talent is there, but there is concern that he will be too small to beat NFL level offensive lineman. His speed and bend should be able to make up for those concerns if he is unable to put on the weight.
  • Hockenson @ TE
    • The TE class is loaded with Fant, Smith, and Hockenson leading the charge. Hockenson can do everything a TE needs to, including block.
  • Adderley @ FS
    • There are two legit single-high safeties in this draft; Deonte Thompson and Nasir Adderley. Adderley would offer much needed assistance on the back end of the defense and could also play CB if needed.
  • Risner @ RG
    • Risner is the long term answer at RT, but not until Bulaga leaves. The RG position was a disaster this past year and Risner will provide some stability.
  • Isabella @ Slot WR
    • The hype train on Andy Isabella is chugging along. His combination of speed, route running ability and quick twitch would add something that has been missing from the offense for a while now.
  • Ingold @ FB
    • Badger fans will love this pick. Alec Ingold made a name for himself at the Senior Bowl. LaFleur is most likely going to use a FB in his offense and Ingold is an exceptional blocker and athletic enough to provide some offense.

  1. The problem is that neither Adderley or Risner will be there when you having them taken. Both stocks are rising, I think Adderely has pushed himself into the first round, Risner, late First / early second

    1. Risner will definitely be gone and I don’t want to trade down from #12. We need a difference maker and we won’t likely get one at #20.

  2. No way we give up the 12th pick. Everyone seems to have us going EDGE at twelve which is OK with me. Let’s make sure we go after the right one. A 6-9-and 1 record afforded us the twelve pick and we need to make this pick our best player in the draft and continue to build on that pick with the 30th and the 44th. I must say I like the picks that this mock draft with trades affords us,I just don’t think these players will be available at that time of the draft. Also,let’s see what free agency brings to the team in March and that could change the direction we go with the first three picks. I hope we sign Clowney and then Hochensen at 12 in the draft.

    1. Not interested in Clowney, never have been impressed with his attitude or effort. He has talent, but no heart.

      1. I hear you,but he’s the only EDGE rusher I believe with talent that won’t be resigned by their team except for possibly Graham with the Eagles. I’d rather just draft two this year at 12 and again within the first three rounds. To be honest Larry I’d like to see us draft just once on the offensive side for a change. Three of the last six first round picks on the defensive side aren’t even with the team anymore.

  3. One small little problem: the Steelers drafted a QB, Mason Rudolph, even trading up to get him in the 3rd round last year (and Big Ben was none too happy about it.)

  4. I’ve discussed this on other boards and give you my take. If Ferrell or White are not there, I’m moving back a few picks. Now if the Jets want to deal, 12 pick, 3rd pick and 6th rd pick is theirs. Might consider a pick next year because we potentially could get a pick if we send Williams, Mathews, Perry and Cobb packing). I might go after Cody Ford with 12. At 30 we have options, Wilkins from Clemson, Tillery from ND, Maybe Sweat drops or the kids from Louisianna Tech, or the DT from Miss State. Rd. 2 Deandre Walker, Edge or Jonathan Abrams S, from Miss. St. Rd. 3 Connor McGovern G from Penn State or Micheal Jordan, OL from Ohio State. 4A Bryce Love, Terry Godwin, Georgia, Chris Lindstrom, BC, 4B Anthony Johnson, WR Buffalo, Myles Boykin, WR Notre Dame, 5 Khalil Hodge, LB Buffalo, CJ Conrad TE, Kentucky, 6A Quadree Ollison RD/FB Pittsburgh (another William Henderson), good spot for a full back, 6B Pratt LB, North Carolia, Dooley, OL South Carolina, 7 Jacob Dolegala, QB Central Conn. Pull up the tape on these guys!!! Especially Walker, kid is a beast!!!

  5. I must say I love the 30th, 44th, 52nd, 91st, and 118th picks. I don’t know much about any of those past Isabella but I don’t want Brian Burns at 20. Depending how this all falls, I wouldn’t be opposed to taking an O-Lineman there opposed to Burns… The reason why is just LOOK at what the Colts were able to do with a FA left tackle and 2 rookie draft choices. Quinton Nelson and Braden Smith were both graded harshly by many “Draft Experts”. IMO those experts are looking pretty stupid now.

    The Packers HAVE to fix that O-Line. Protecting Rodgers has to be job #1. Obviously they need edge help but if they sign some GOOD contracts in Free Agency meaning less contracts to guys like Williams and Graham, guys over 30 and more contracts to guys like Anthony Barr or Za’Darius Smith, guys with upside past one season if that. The BIGGEST mistake the Packers made last season was thinking they were a player or two away from a SB. I love the Packers and obviously hope they win a SB EVERY year. But IMO this team needs 2 more SOLID drafts AND to spend those FA dollars wisely. 2020 and 2021 will be the Packers “Window” if Gutekunst does this right. Make the playoffs in 2019 and WIN the SB in 2020 & 2021. Spend WISELY Gute…The Packers future depends on it more than ever.
