By this point, everyone knows who the top draft prospects are. Since the scouting process has began, very few guys have fallen and very few have risen. So no explanation needs to be given for this mock draft. I used the fanspeak website with Matt Miller’s big board.
The start of the draft went pretty well with the first three picks being all positions of needs as well as best player available. The middle and late round were another story. I just missed on guys like Khalen Saunders and Andy Isabella. Looking back at the mock I feel that another pick could have been used on safety and edge, despite signing two free agents at edge. There is a good mix of players in this draft that would instantly bolster the roster and provide some depth.
I still think that Brian Gutekunst and the Packers will be best off by trading the 12th overall pick to a quarterback needy team to add to their draft capital. They could always use those picks to trade back up to get a player they really want. Overall, most big boards have stayed consistent since the combine and don’t look like they are going to change anytime soon.
