Ryan Shazier - Outside Linebacker, Ohio State, 6-2, 230 (4.58)

Shazier could be a wildcard pick in the first round. Experts vary on whether he deserves a top-15 pick or should be taken in the bottom of the first round.

Like Mosley, Shazier is undersized as a linebacker. However, Shazier is a tackling machine and can get after the quarterback. In 2013, he recorded seven sacks and 22 tackles for a loss, and in 2012, he recorded five sacks and 17 tackles for a loss.

This tells you this guy can make impact plays on the field and would be an assett to any defense. Shazier could offer the Packers some depth at outside linebacker and rotate in the lineup as a pass rusher. The Packers could even consider putting him at inside linebacker.

    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.

      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.
