The 2014 NFL Draft is only a few days away, and we all wait in anticipation to see who the Green Bay Packers will select with their nine picks.

Over the past couple of weeks I provided a breakdown of the 2014 draft class and ranked the top prospects at each position. Here is a compilation of my position rankings.

I also highlighted who I think the Packers could select at each position and when this player could be found in the draft.

I ordered the position rankings by what I see as the most important needs on the Packers roster.

  • Peter Maiz

    There is just an enormous amount of talent, I’m really wondering if a second rounder may indeed be every bit the talent as a first rounder, or thereabouts.

    • Dan

      That’s a great point, Peter. The second day of the draft is going to be huge. The depth of this draft is really in rounds 2-3. A lot of good players grading out there. We could see a bunch of starters come out of the second day of the draft.

      • Peter Maiz

        Dan, where do you see the first pick, TE, Safety, ILB, or a very talented corner? I don’t think this draft does lack depth at TE.

        • Dan

          Tough call. I honestly think the Packers will take the best available player in round 1 and address need later. Personally, I would like the pick to be safety for obvious reasons. I don’t like Clinton-Dix in round one, but I’m big on Calvin Pryor. I’m not sure how the Packers feel about Pryor though. He may be too much of a risk taker. I think the pick in round one is one of the following – TE Ebron, LB Mosley, LB Shazier, Safety Pryor, or NT Nix. My pick would be Pryor, but I’m usually wrong about who the Packers take with their first pick.

          • Peter Maiz

            Dan, I really like Pryor too. Pryor could easily be retrained to be more acceptable to the NFL. A trainee (or rookie) need not be totally trained by day one, first game, in my opinion. Every day of every week until the end of the season would provide training and a chance to improve. The Packers shouldn’t wait for another year on a really high quality safety. Just my 2 cents. Plus they would use Pryor for many years to come.
            Mosley would make an immediate difference, though.

          • Dan

            Great point.
