With only a couple of weeks to go, we are well and truly in mock draft season. One mock features a dream scenario for the Green Bay Packers.
If Lance Zierlein’s latest mock for NFL.com came true, Packers fans would have good reason to celebrate after the opening round.
Zierlein has Georgia defensive tackle Jordan Davis falling to Green Bay at No. 22 before the Packers add North Dakota State wide receiver Christian Watson at No. 28.
Can you imagine a Packers defensive line featuring Kenny Clark, Jarran Reed, and Jordan Davis? Sign. Me. Up.
Dean Lowry and TJ Slaton would ensure they have great depth behind the starters.
Davis is 6-foot-6, 340 pounds, but stole the show at the NFL Combine when he ran an incredible 4.78-second 40-yard dash.
With Davis starting, Green Bay’s defense could be dominant against the run.
While most mocks have Davis going well before the Packers hit the clock, it would be a dream start to the draft if he fell to No. 22.
The best part is Zierlein still has Green Bay getting the wide receiver it needs. Zierlein put it best in his mock draft:
"“Doesn’t Watson just feel like a Packer? He’s a little raw but ridiculously athletic, with the type of size (6-5, 208) that Aaron Rodgers seems to do well with vertically.”"
He sure does feel like a Packer. Watson has the size and athleticism the Packers love from their wide receivers.
Green Bay also has a need for speed on offense, especially after losing Marquez Valdes-Scantling in free agency. Watson would help fix that.
In time, he can become a great WR1 in Matt LaFleur’s offense.
The Packers could go in about a million different directions on draft night. If they came away from the first round with Jordan Davis and Christian Watson without needing to trade up, consider it a huge victory.
