That's what makes this mock draft a nice pipe dream. He would pick Jaylon Smith in the 1st, then be able to grab Henry in the second since he would be available for the picking. And the chances of this are right up there with me winning the Powerball.

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.

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.

Re: Official 2016 NFL Draft Thread

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.

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.

I live close to Columbus and I have the misfortune of seeing most O$U games. Lee is an OL and probably is a little to light to play ILB in the NFL. He is extremely fast and could be a nice compliment to Clay if he goes back outside.

Re: Official 2016 NFL Draft Thread

I understand that teams play their defenses differently which dictates what they want from each position but Carolina's LBers, Kuechly & Davis are only listed at 235, Lee is listed at 228. Cards play Bucannon as essentially a LBer at 218 lbs. I think players like Lee & Cravens from USC would be coveted by Dom, since they have a varied skill set & can be moved around the field.

Re: Official 2016 NFL Draft Thread

Grave Digger ·
He doesn't play like he's 230 though, he plays like he's 215. He's closer to Deone Buchanan than he is Luke Keuchly. Would you put Deone Buchanan at ILB full time? Arizona doesn't do that, he plays more of a Rover that doesn't fill gaps and take on OL. Lee's not aggressive like an ILB either, he reminds me of Julian Peterson really. Exceptional athlete, but not a thumper. More of an athlete than football player right now. Why would Dom covet a small LB/big Safety? He has two Safeties that...

With Nelson, Cobb, Adams, Montgomery, Abbradaris, and Janis! an athletic TE would be unfair. They ought to have Janis! put on about 10-15 lbs and then spend the off-season with Brian Angelichio.

Re: Official 2016 NFL Draft Thread

I think getting more speed on the field has been the goal for the last few years. That's why Brad Jones was moved to ILB and it's why Nate Palmer moved to ILB. Those guys are on the more athletic end of the ILB spectrum, what they lack are instincts and vision to put their athleticism to any good use. The great ILBs in this league are fast (most are 4.6/4.7 range), but above all they have to have the instincts and the vision. If you can shed OLinemen and locate the football in a split second...

Re: Official 2016 NFL Draft Thread

FLPACKER ·
I agree that instincts to the ball are most important. However this is exactly why players should not be discounted as being "too small" to play ILBer if they are only in the 225 range. How much does 10 more pounds matter when you are being blocked by a 300+ olineman? If you are 230 or 240, you are still at a great disadvantage. The key is to not get blocked. You are correct, we don't know if Lee & Cravens have those great instincts(or maybe you do?) , but I think we've dismissed too...

Re: Official 2016 NFL Draft Thread

Grave Digger ·
I definitely agree with you, discounting guys because of their size is a big mistake in a lot of cases. Guys can bulk up to 230 or 240 and be effective, that's not an issue in my mind. It can be a problem when you're 220 and have to constantly battle 300 lb linemen and hit 220+ RBs. There's a reason many true ILBs or MLBs are in that 240/250 range, that 20 lbs of muscle can help you withstand the pounding. In the case of Lee and Cravens, although they are very different players, I don't see...
