Green Bay Packers Draft: A Final 7 Round Mock

So much attention is given to the first round of each NFL draft class, but history testifies to the fact that even the latest of selections can become centerpieces in an NFL franchise – including the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers are known as one of the better drafting teams in the league and it wouldn’t surprise anyone to see three or four of this year’s draft picks become consistent starters. This is why, as Packer fans, we get so excited about the NFL draft. We know that we are seeing the future of our team being shaped with every pick, in every round.

Because every pick matters, here is my final 7 round mock draft.

Round 1: Datone Jones – DE, UCLA
Jones is an amazing athlete and has the ability to play Defensive End in the Packers 3-4 defense. He would add some much-needed talent to what has been an anemic defensive line. At 6’-4, he would add the length and motor that Green Bay is looking for on the line. Jones has recently made comments about wanting to play in the Packers’ scheme. I, too, think he is a great fit.

Round 2: D.J. Swearinger – Safety, South Carolina
If the Packers don’t take a Safety in the first round, you can bet that they will take one sooner than later. Swearinger has been climbing up draft boards. His ability to be a big hitter strikes fear into receivers who have to cross the middle of the field. Accused of being “soft”, the packers could use a player like Swearinger who can pack a punch in the secondary.

Round 3: Brian Schwenke – C/G, California
This one is tough because the Packers could select a number of offensive linemen. I list Schwenke because I believe that Travis Frederick will be off the board. Schwenke gives Green Bay someone who can play all three interior O-line positions. He would compete with Dietrich-Smith for the starting Center job.

Round 4: Stedman Bailey – WR, West Virginia
Tavon Austin and Geno Smith have been getting all the attention when it comes to West Virginia prospects, but Bailey has the potential be a great NFL receiver. He was arguably the most consistent player of the West Virginia bunch. Some believe that he may only be able to play the slot. The slot is a good place to be in the Packer’s offense.

Round 5a: Jordan Mills –  T, La. Tech
Mills provides competition to the Packer’s O-line. He might not be a NFL left tackle, but he could certainly develop into a great depth player or even compete to start right tackle if Bulaga moves to the left side.

Round 5b: Kwame Geathers - NT, Georgia
The Packers pick a space eater with the second of their 5th round picks. Geathers is a mountain of a man that, with some coaching, could be an eventual replacement for Ryan Pickett. For now, a Raji, Pickett, D. Jones, Worthy, Geathers defensive line does not sound too shabby.

Round 6: Michael Hill – RB, Missouri Western
Hill is a lesser known talent that the Packers seem to really like. They have brought him in for a visit. The film on this guy is amazing. He is also a great blocker and decent receiver out of the backfield. I think he could be a late round steal. I wonder if they take him a round or so earlier to make sure they get him.

Round 7: Ryan Otten – TE, San Jose State
Otten has the potential to be a top 100 prospect, but lacks some bulk. He has good hands and runs smooth routes. Given some time to develop and a commitment to a weight room, he could be a late round steal.

    hope my pack draft board looks something like this youtube they highlights to see why i hope the pack get them

    1st LT manelik watson. move bulaga to the right side AND PROVIDE THE BEST PROTECTION FOR THE POTENTIAL HIGHEST PAID QB IN HISTORY

    2nd DE damontre moore. good pass rusher along with clay good speed off the hike instincts are good

    3rd RB christine michael for a rb i want your 40 to be at least a 4.5 michael’s is 4.4 and arian foster like with more speed measures at 5’11 225

    4th WR’S kenny stills or ryan swope loss of jennings and driver means we should go wr both these guys primarly slot but can play the sidelines have dangerous speed and great hands swope wes walker like but faster. stills randall cobb like imagine two of them WOW.

    5th OLB lerentee mccray james harrison like gets to the qb very well and has the toughness the packers are craving for
    5th CB terry hawthorne any real packers fan knows how ted thompson feels about the CB position his words you can never have enough granted we have depth at the position but this kid hawthorne shows potential to come in and fight for a role from the start and remember we have shields for one more year if he plays well he will want to get paid something the pack might not be able to afford cutler would have to watch out for hawthorne doesnt give much space to receivers and a little in-accuracy in a throw this guy can have a pick-6 he catches alot of balls and has crazy speed 40 time 4.3

    6th wr rodney smith. calvin johnson like 6 feet 5 and runs a 4.4 forty WOW doesnt have a hands problem is kind of raw but with experience and work eithic this guy can be a pro bowler

    7th leon sandcastle lol but seriously jordan rodgers its just enticing to think about rodgers coming to play alongside his brother might not be a very great talent coming out the draft but maybe a mcarthy qb camp can change that like it did aaron. (good back up)

    another thing that factor into my choices is that these guy have ben mainly healthy in there college careers one problem with the pack every year is injuries and also these guys have the mental aspect it takes to be a packer mature and professional i hope at the least 4 of these guys are able to come to training camp this year
