Look around the Internet and you will find mock draft after mock draft with first round projections for all 32 teams, but try to find one the takes a look at all seven rounds for individual teams and you will search for a long time – they are few and far between.
However, I did find one – produced by Fantasy Knuckleheads – that takes an interesting look at what the Packers’ brass may be considering come April.
Everyone’s in agreement that defense, defense, defense has got to be the rallying cry for the Packers this year. Not only does the team need an outside linebacker to complement Clay Matthews, but the team also is in need of a pass-rushing defensive end, a cornerback to groom to take the place of Charles Woodson, an offensive tackle to step in on the left side when Chad Clifton finally says goodbye, and even a running back that will bolster the still-uncertainty that is the Packers offensive backfield.
All of these holes in the Packers roster are addressed by the Fantasy Knuckelheads’ mock draft, with a couple of surprises thrown in.
As we suffer through the Pro Bowl this weekend, we have to admit that it’s time to start thinking the draft, even though it’s still three months away. Between now and then there will be plenty of speculation as the stock in players rise and fall through the player combine and up to draft day.
So, take a look at this mock … it’s an interesting one that will pique your interest. In addition, here is our first mock draft we put together earlier this week.
