Travis Swanson – Center, Arkansas, 6-4, 318

I would be surprised if the Packers take an interior offensive lineman in the first round. Starting-caliber centers and guards can be found later in the draft; however, if the Packers don’t re-sign Evan Dietrich-Smith, then center will become one of their biggest needs heading into the 2014 season.

Green Bay will still have 2013 fourth-round pick J.C. Tretter on the roster. Tretter is working on transitioning from college tackle to NFL center/guard, but Green Bay may look for a player with experience playing center.

Swanson is by far the top center in this year’s draft class. He’s the only one worth an early round draft pick and will most likely start immediately for whomever drafts him. The Packers couldn’t go wrong drafting Swanson in the late first round if EDS seeks greener pastures after this season.

Let me know what you think about these draft prospects. Leave a comment below, on our Facebook Page, on Twitter …  and stay tuned for more 2014 draft coverage here at Lombardiave.com.

    Let’s go for HaSean Clinton- Smith. Safety is such a requirement to improve the defense. What kind of a name is Ha Ha, anyway? It’s too bad we can’t reap all this young talent. Tuitt is a monster much needed to be an impact player. These are my first two choices.

    • Dan

      Yeah, I’m with you, Peter. I think both Clinton-Dix and Tuitt would be great fits in the Packers defense. I like the TEs in this draft, but I don’t think Green Bay needs to spend a first round pick on one. I’d like them to go defense in the first round, but that’ll be three years in a row going defense in round one.

      • Peter Maiz

        Well 3 years in a row and another year without a good defense. I wonder.
