ROUND 1 Austin Johnson/NT/Penn St. 6’3”/325 lbs. True NT…stout run defender…holds the LOS better than any player in the draft ROUND 2 Joe Schobert/LB/Wisconsin 6’1”/235 lbs. High energy, high effort…strong edge rush and blitz skills…versatility as ILB or OLB ROUND 3 Nick Vannett/TE/Ohio St. 6’6”/260 lbs. Great size with experience in-line or split out…tough, experienced blocker…wasn’t used enough at OSU ROUND 4 Joe Haeg/OT/North Dakota St. 6’5”/300 lbs. Good developmental LT…all around game...

Raw athlete, not a great LB right now. I like him as a WLB in a 43 or maybe as an OLB in a 34 if he improved taking on blockers. I don't think he has the bulk right to play consistently inside in any scheme and he doesn't seem to have that attacking ILB mentality. To me he's almost like a big Safety out there.

If healthy, Scooby Wright is a hell of a player. Will be interesting to see where he ends up. The other guy who I think would be a good fit for the Pack is Austin Hooper, a TE out of Stanford. He would upgrade the position for sure.

Blocking out the pipedreams.......I like Hunter Henry in the first. That seems about where he is slotted to go. TE's don't usually shoot up draft boards due to workouts, so hopefully stays late first. I would consider Jaylen Smith, knowing he'd sit out 2016. He's that good that he'd be worth the wait. And not sure why so many boards have DL as such a priority. They actually played very well this year and have Daniels, Pennel and Jones coming back. Yes Guion and Raji are free agents but...

Right now I'm liking Michigan St DE Shilique Calhoun in round 1. Great size, showed some real potential as an edge rusher, and showed a lot of discipline in the run game setting the edge. He's not really polished in any area though and Michigan St defenders haven't faired well in the NFL recently (I'm looking at you Jerel Worthy). He's a very interesting prospect though.

I have an odd feeling the Packers may grab Shilique Calhoun to replace Perry and Peppers snaps in the first, depending on what they do with Datone. Matthews, Neal, Calhoun, Elliott, Datone would give them an interesting combo to work with, especially if Peppers is back for part-time duty. Neal, Datone, Peppers and Calhoun could all put their hand down in certain sets.

Pikes Peak posted: The mothership has GB taking the tight end from Ark.....whatever that is worth If he makes to #27 that would be my guess as well. I think Ted would favor taking a pass-rusher first, but here the choice could come down between Spence and Henry and Ted would probably favor Henry in that scenario when factoring in Spence's off-the-field issues. The flip side of that is that it will be much easier for Ted to find a decent pass-catching tight end candidate later in the draft.

PFF has Green Bay taking Sheldon Rankins, DT/DE, Lousiville You can never have enough studs on the defensive line, just worries me with how poorly TT has drafted the DL. Not sure I'd pass on Jaylon Smith though - all depends on his medical checkup.

Smith would be an interesting choice. he probably tore his ACL in bowl game, so it is questionable whether he would play at all next season However it would be a rare chance for us to get a "top 15' guy.

My thoughts exactly. Best case, you get a Todd Gurley - an all-pro caliber player ready late in year 1. Most likely, you get a Willis Macgahee - sit out a full year to rehab but get a very good player for a long time. Worst case, it's Javon Walker - struggles to ever regain the athleticism he had before the injury (sorry, was struggling for an example of blown out knee ruining a promising career). Problem is, if the medical reports are good, Smith goes much higher and the Packers never have...

In addition, just because Henry is the best TE in the draft does not mean he is a first round talent.Combine will be important for him. Almost all of the recent top TEs (Gronk, Whitten, Hernandez, Gates, Davis, Thomas, Olsen etc) ran a sub 4.65.

I agree, in part because I don't think there is one worth a first-rounder. Jake McGee of Miami intrigues me a bit later. He's kind of a cross between Clive Walford and Marques Colston, IMO, in that he has a similar skill set to Walford, but lighter on blocking though a bit better split wide and in the seam.

I'm not a big fan of Calhoun. Had a decent year two years ago, last year (Sr.) got lost in the shuffle, and didn't stand out, IMO. He's athletic, and GD has a good break down of him, but I'd pass.

DH13 posted: TT's board isn't going to have a RD1 TE. I'd agree. In most mock drafts, there is just one where Hunter Henry went in the 1st. Most I'm seeing has him either in the 2nd or even the 3rd round. I'd love for GB to be able to take him in those rounds but I doubt he'll last much past 45-50th overall. So either TT will reach for him at 27 (that won't happen) or he'll need to trade up in the 2nd (highly doubtful).

The best bet for a TE as the Packers first pick would be if a QB slots there and a team gets nervous about Arizona or maybe Denver pulling the trigger and trades up 5-10 spots.

I think it depends on the player. If Henry is a legit first round talent then he will take him. Ted took Jeramy Stevens while he was in Seattle, it's not unprecedented. I look at Henry as a Heath Miller-type talent...not a flashy athlete, but a big, reliable target. If Thompson believes he is that guy and the interviews check out then I wouldn't be surprised if he's the pick.

Here's a compilation of mocks for GB: Packers mock drafts: Post-Senior Bowl edition Our first roundup of who the prognosticators think the Green Bay Packers will select in the NFL Draft. The Green Bay Packers own all seven of their picks, and that's it. At least for now. The website overthecap.com predicts the Packers will gain two fourth-round picks for losing cornerbacks Tramon Williams and Davon House to free agency. But until that time when the NFL awards compensation picks, it is seven...

I don't know if Hunter Henry's numbers at Indy will mean anything to Ted. Ted loves athletes on defense, but he seems to favor production on offense. The guy sure looks quick and fluid on the field. Great hands. Had 739 receiving yards last year, the NCAA's website has that as the second highest totals among tight ends (UCLA's Thomas Duarte was #1 with 872). Jermichael Finley ran a 4.82 at Indy and that didn't scare Ted away. Now if someone wants to make the argument that Ted just won't...

Finley was a third round pick, much different than first round. My point is that the biggest common variable with most of the top TEs in the past decade has been speed.

Ted will take football players, so if Jarran Reed is there and Ted thinks he's the guy then a lack of pass rush skill won't hold him back. I think his philosophy is find the guy who can just play football and worry about the scheme later. Where did Mike Daniels fit in the 34? On paper nowhere, but Ted knew he was a guy could just flat out play and it's worked out. Same with Julius Peppers, Randall, Perry, etc. On paper how could Julius Peppers, at 33, possibly make the switch to 34 OLB...how...

**** anything other than a true inside linebacker. Move Clay back outside. Every play. GB needs a true inside linebacker. I don't give one half a **** what they do otherwise this offseason. Get a guy with speed in the middle in front of Ha Ha and Morgan. Get a guy that can play the middle. Relentlessly. **** TE. **** WR. Get a damn middle linebacker. If they find that guy he'll get his importance in the big picture. That matters.

I don't see Ted picking an inside backer in the first two round either. -Reggie Ragland/Alabama - Long gone by the time the Packers pick unless he tanks it in workouts. And if he tanks it in workouts then Ted won't pick him. -Kentrell Brothers/Missouri - Mediocre athlete. Good all around player in college but he'll probably run into coverage issues in the NFL and could end up being a 2-down backer in the NFL. Kind of a shorter, stubby guy and that's not in fashion in today's NFL. Not a round...
