Defense dominates the latest Green Bay Packers mock draft roundup.
Last week was all about Iowa cornerback Josh Jackson, and while he still features twice in this week’s roundup, some new names have been added.
The Green Bay Packers will have a number options when they hit the clock with the 14th overall pick in April’s draft.
Here’s who the top draft analysts have going to the Packers in their latest mock drafts.
Lombardi Ave’s own Dan Dahlke provided seven rounds of mock draft goodness earlier this week, which is well worth checking out. His first selection was Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds.
At some point the Packers will need to add another edge rusher or two. Would Marcus Davenport be a good option at No. 14? Randy Gurzi of NFL Spin Zone says yes.
The latest With The First Pick mock draft has the Packers adding Roquan Smith to join Blake Martinez in the middle of Mike Pettine’s defense. Inside linebacker could finally become a position of strength in Green Bay.
Josh Jackson is one of the top cornerback talents in the draft, and one who could potentially make an immediate impact. He would be a strong selection at No. 14.
The only offensive pick in this week’s mock draft roundup is Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley. The odds of selecting a wide receiver early on would go up considerably if one of Jordy Nelson or Randall Cobb is cut. Ridley could be dominant with Aaron Rodgers. Imagine pairing him with Davante Adams.
Another Jackson pick here. A number of players would make sense for Green Bay at No. 14, but Jackson could be the best fit of them all.
Which of these prospects would you most like to see selected by the Packers at No. 14 overall?
