RD 2 – Carl Davis, DL, Iowa

Bleacher Report’s lead draft analyst, Matt Miller – and one of the best resources for draft analysis around the web, in my opinion–just came out with his latest two-round mock draft and has Green Bay addressing their front seven with their first two picks.

This makes complete sense. McKinney is athletic, explosive, and imposing at 6-foot-5 and 249 pounds. Many consider the Mississippi State prospect as the top inside linebacker in this year’s class.

He’s a tough, downhill player that offers a lot of upside and would address a major need at inside linebacker for the Packers.

However, the better pick here might be Davis, the powerful, run-stuffing defensive lineman who is a steal at the end of the second round.

At 6-foot-5 and 315-pounds, Davis can play either nose tackle or defensive end in the Packers system and shows good burst off the line. He could be a day-one starter in the Packers base.
