    He goes at NO. 20 to the NE Patriots in this Mock.

    He appears stiff to me but a gamer 'lunch box' sort of player.

    Difference between Adams and Spriggs is that Adams at least showed some upside in his 1st 2 years, while Spriggs has been awful every single day he's been a Packer.
    It takes OL longer to develop. I hate spriggs, he is awful, but he could still be a player. Many an OL the packers gave up on went on to long careers.

    I really doubt that he is there when we pick, although he reminds me of antonio cromartie coming out. Cromartie was a slam dunk top 10 pick except for injury. James played all of 2017 and got better as he gained confidence in his health. Guy will not be around at our pick, but if he is .... whoa nelly!!

    That's true... I think the shock is just how bad Spriggs has been.

    In college he looked like a guy with some skills and upside, but since drafting him he has been worse than terrible.

    Doubt fuels performance. Better than nitrous.

    Mike Lombardi thinks he'll make the Pro Bowl next year at RT.

    Don't give up yet. If he sucks or suffers a season-ending injury, then let the criticism fly. Give him that big third year to see if he fingers it out.

    Yeah, well Mike Lombardi also thought Doug Pederson was the least qualified person to coach a team that he'd seen in all his 30 years of professional football.

    I don't think he watched enough Packer games. The last thing the Packers need is a guy tailor made for the slot.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2...nd-predictions

    14. Green Bay Packers: Denzel Ward, Cornerback, Ohio State

    The Packers ranked dead last in the NFL at stopping opponents' No. 1 receivers and 26th at stopping their No. 2 receivers, according to Football Outsiders. Injuries at cornerback were a huge part of the problem, but projected starters Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins have never been consistent, Davon House is about to enter free agency and the bottom of the depth chart is full of names like Lenzy Pipkins.

    Denzel Ward is a mighty-mite type: undersized at 5'10", 191 pounds, but with the physicality of an enforcer on the edge of the defense. Drop him in the slot, and he'll throw his body around against the run while demonstrating range and alertness as an underneath defender. Move him outside and he can grow into a shutdown corner, albeit one who will have to be moved around to avoid size mismatches against Julio Jones types.

    This is a safe, down-the-middle choice by the standards of the Packers, who often listened to the music of the spheres when Ted Thompson ran the draft. Look for new GM Brian Gutekunst to be a little more conventional as the Packers try to rebound from a season that exposed their reliance on Aaron Rodgers.

    Most of what is wrong on defense was due to Dom Capers and the outgoing coaching staff... it's tough to tell what we really have in terms of talent b/c of how misused everyone was.

    That said, we do know some things...

    Ryan is maxed out as a backup/ST's guy - has no business in an NFL starting lineup.

    Martinez is average, probably needs to be replaced. Maybe some coaching can help him - he's better than Ryan, and occasionally shows some ability, but overall he's not shown he should be a starter in the league.

    Randall is a one-trick pony, can't tackle, takes bad angles, and just isn't a very good football player. Needs to be replaced.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Tackling overall has always been an issue since Capers has been there, and some of that has to do with the skirt-wearing style of players the Packers have preferred in the past. Hopefully with a new staff coming in, we'll see some fundamental changes in approach and attitude.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    As for players in this draft - I don't want Davenport at all. I just don't see him having enough quickness or any other outstanding quality that puts him in the 1st round. To me, from the little tape that I've watched, he looks like a low-round, undrafted FA type.

    Been hearing some buzz too about Darius Leonard, LB, South Carolina State... but I didn't like what I saw of him either.

    Front seven guys I've looked at that I've like so far are...

    Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State
    Arden Key, LB/Edge, LSU
    Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia
    Tremaine Edmunds, LB, Virgina Tech
    Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, LB, Oklahoma
    Harold Landry, LB/Edge, Boston College

    I agree that Ryan is nothing special. Martinez is above average now.

    I would have to disagree on Randall. He may have had his issues, but he has the most potential of any of our CB's right now. Does he achieve it? I guess we'll find out.

  17. #297
    LOL, wist lists 6 top 45 players as the guys he likes. Well no shit sherlock :-p

    This is a really deep ILB class. Lots of good players here. I have to imagine the Packers pick two ILBs in the first 5 rounds or so simply because the talent is too good. Pass rushers are going to be tough to come by I think though. My gut feeling is if Edmunds is there, you can't pass him up. He's like Peppers with the size and speed. It's just rare. I doubt he will be, though. He's not a pass rusher so he won't go #1, but he will be top 5 I think. Some of the beat writers like Landry, they say he has great bend.

    I wouldn't mind any of those peeps except for Key. Seems to be a head case. Roquan Smith is an absolute animal.

    At least watch Meatballs wist. Those girls are brutal.
