Which offensive players should the Green Bay Packers consider, throw off the draft board this year?
Instead of another mock, last week I decided to go different direction and discuss with fellow writers, Freddie Boston and Kyle Fellows, the prospects in the draft the Packers should be sold on and the ones they should definitely pass on at each defensive position.
Click here if you’re interested in checking out our take on the defensive prospects we love and hate for Green Bay. For this piece, we used the “red” and “black” dot system, widely applied in draft war rooms around the league.
This is a process explained in detail by analysts and former scouts Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks on the fantastic draft podcast Move the Sticks, which I highly recommend if you’re a draft enthusiast, like myself.
Basically, each key member of a team’s draft war room gets a red dot and a black dot to place on the name of one player at each position on their board as the group discusses draft strategy. “Red Dot” meaning this is a player you absolutely want on your team and will vouch for, regardless of his projected round or where he’s placed on your board.
On the contrary, the “Black Dot” is placed on the name of the player you don’t want on your team or you feel is a bad fit for your system, essentially a player you don’t want your team to consider drafting.
To finish out our look at the 2016 draft class, today the three of us discuss the other side of the ball and name our “red” and “black” dot players at each offensive position.
Check out where we agreed and where we had some discrepancy. Also, let us know what you think by putting in your own two cents in the comments section below.
