As fun as it is to play the role of Green Bay Packers general manager during mock drafts, it's time to try something different.
Instead of making the picks for the Packers myself, I'll be letting the computer decide which prospects land in Green Bay.
So, let's begin. Here are four different mocks, all put together using Pro Football Network's mock draft simulator.
For each, I just sat back and let the simulator make the Packers' picks. Here are the results.
Packers 7-round mock draft #1
Round 1 (15): Quentin Johnston, WR, TCU
A dream start for the Packers in this mock draft, selecting one of the best wide receivers in the class. Johnston is 6-foot-3, 208 pounds with great athleticism and speed. He could be a dominant receiver in Green Bay's offense.
Round 2 (45): Keion White, EDGE, Georgia Tech
This is a great edge rusher class, and Georgia Tech's Keion White could become one of the best in this year's draft. White is a phenomenal athlete and could become a quality starter for the Packers.
Round 3 (78): Tyler Steen, OT, Alabama
GM Brian Gutekunst loves to add offensive line depth in the draft, and he does that again in the third round. Tyler Steen would add some depth, with the potential to become a starter in time.
Round 4 (103 - from Chicago): Cameron Latu, TE, Alabama
The Packers trade up with a division rival, sending the #116 and #149 picks to the Bears in return for the #103 pick.
Round 5 (170): Will Mallory, TE, Miami (FL)
A double-down at tight end. The Packers need to rebuild their tight end depth. With Latu and Mallory, they would have two tight ends to develop.
Round 7 (232): Xavier Henderson, S, Michigan State
Round 7 (235): Matt Landers, WR, Arkansas
Round 7 (242): Cam Jones, LB, Alabama
Round 7 (256): Durrell Nchami, EDGE, Maryland
Overall grade: C
Overall, this is a decent draft class. The Packers may have hit a home run with the first two picks. However, they miss out on the top tight ends in the class, wait until the seventh to address the safety position, and don't add any depth at defensive tackle.
