Packers Draft Special: Packers Big Board 1.0

As of right now the Green Bay Packers have six picks in the first 118.  The exercise here is not a new one for Cheesehead TV.  I'm going to develop (and update one, maybe two times) a Big Board specific to Green Bay's team needs and my evaluation of this class.  This board is of course taking into account the additions of Za'Darius Smith, Preston Smith, Adrian Amos and Billy Turner.  

As I pointed out in this piece right here, the Packers needs have been re-set, at least to a degree.  The Packers have quite a few more options, especially with their top-end picks, than was originally thought.  Green Bay has ten picks in total, but I'm going to focus on those first six.  Players picked in round 1-4 have pretty good odds of turning into at the very least quality starters.

Moving forward, we'll throw together a Packers top 125.  With Green Bay's selections coming in the top 118 and the list being skewed towards their needs, the seven bonus picks should at least provide a short list of guys to focus on.

3 Brian Burns

In what universe?

Ross Uglem's picture

the universe where you put in the work and actually watch the games instead of reading other people's work, coming up with a consensus and then running down the work of those who provide me with free analysis.

Also the experts at the Draft Network have Allen behind Burns, so their universe, too.

ShanghaiKid's picture

Get em' Ross.

puffybabyman's picture

I've watched both. I didn't see anything to suggest him being #3 overall. But I'll rewatch.

James Martins's picture

Sounds like a Browns draft board.

CheesyTex's picture

Nicely done, Ross.

This will be an exciting draft for Packers fans, and your board really helps to focus on specific players I wasn't watching. Thanks.

P.S. Hope Parris Campbell is 83 or worse on everyone's board. Would love to see him in Green and Gold.

hodge555's picture

FYI I found the RAS for Jachai Polite, 3.82

Johnblood27's picture

If only that was his 40 time...

Then he would be the Flash! Thanks, Since '61

porupack's picture

Real interesting, and thanks for the research, Ross.

Curious on a few things, but none more than having DBush higher on GB Board than DWhite. How do support that one?

Surprised to see Winovich that high, and Simmons that low, or let's say, Simmons seemingly isn't much of a consideration.

There are a lot of Safeties and Olineman about where GB looks to nab #30-#44.
I'm certainly behind the board believing in a few TE prospects.

Ross Uglem's picture

Devin Bush is a better player than Devin White, and they are basically at the exact same level athleticism-wise. The exactly 1" that Bush is shorter than White is not enough to tip the scales to White.

sherrmann1806's picture

i strongly disagree with your assessment Mr Uglem! I happen to think White will be a multiple probowl player not to mention a possible Hall of Famer!!
I wish..OH HOW I WISH that GM BG would do whatever he had to do to move up to get white!! Having a player like him in the heart of the Packers lineup will immediately convert their D into a top 10 to 12 Defense (if not better!

Jonathan Spader's picture

Based on what Sherrman? Tape you've watched on both of them? Comments other writers have made? Not judging just honestly asking. You claim to disagree but not why you feel White is the better Devin. Not judging just curious.

porupack's picture

Thanks on the comeback re: DBush and how packers are likely to view the two.

If I understand your draft board, this is the ranking order you believe packers will use (not your personal preference).

Therefore, the way we should use this, is in critiquing other mock drafts and the real drafts; once players come off the board to other teams, we scratch off that player, until GB's pick, when we go to this ranking board in descending order to find the next BPA Gute would pick.

So, your board, although showing Burns at #3 (as an example) could still very possibly be available at pick #12. And if your board is Gute's board, then they would clearly pick Burns if the two ahead of Burns was picked elsewhere, because he would be Gute's 3rd BPA, and would be a good value at #12.
And....furthermore, for example, if BBurns and DWhite or GWilliams were all available at pick #12, we would see Gute picking Burns.

Is that correct assumptions with a projected GB board?

jannes bjornson's picture

I've followed Pauline's board over the years and he seems to have the best track record longterm. I've watched LSU games all year and Big Ten. White transcends Bush. Burns may develop a power move down the road, but now he relies on speed moves.

Ross Uglem's picture

aside from the comment about another writer's board none of what was just said is accurate.

Dzehren's picture

GB should replicate NO Saints 2017 draft
(Except for pick 12- no high pick on CB)
Interesting how GB pick #'s are almost an exact match.

Pick 11 CB Marshon Lattimore
Pick 32 OT Ryan Ramczyk
Pick 42 Safety Marcus Williams
Pick 67 RB Alvin Kumara
Pick 76 LB Alex Anzalone
Pick 117 OLB Trey Hendrickson
Pick 197 OLB Al-Quadin Muhammad

ShooterMcGee's picture

It's so interesting that the picks are almost the same except for the Kamara pick for which I believe they traded a 2nd rounder in 2018. If we have similar draft success lookout! Thanks for posting this.

Dzehren's picture

Yes shooter- The Saints did trade up for Kumara. I hope GB follows this blueprint.

Irish_Cheesehead's picture

Would LOVE to see Devin White still on the board when the Packers pick at 12.

Turophile's picture

I'd like it even more if he was still on the board AFTER the Packers pick at #12.

SterlingSharpe's picture

Have you seen an LSU game, or only watch Big Ten/Badger collegiate games?

cpitt's picture

Good effort. IMO, Jerry Tillery should be top 15. Appreciate all the effort

jimtalkbox's picture

Man, I really want Oliver, Burns or Hock at #12

I'm with you and was wondering if all three are there at #12 I wonder who would the Packers pick from what I've read they would all be impact players their first year.

Minniman's picture

Well if they are drafted by the Packers and don't work out then they'll certainly have a fork stuck in them!

jannes bjornson's picture

They should be safe by the next Year of the Snake. I like Wilkens.

Packerpasty's picture

this is about as high as I've seen Winovich...boom or bust guy thats for sure...non stop motor but is that enough?

lowcsp's picture

how is he any more of a boom or bust guy than burns or polite his combine numbers were a lot better than polite an not much lower than burns and his motor does go harder than either one of them

jannes bjornson's picture

Winovich is high effort and relentless, but Van Ginkle from the Badgers may be similar with a bit more strength training and available in the fifth or sixth RD.

stockholder's picture

No to Winovich. The best player was Bush. He went out and nobody got to the QB. Winovich could blitz if he got free. He'll need time. He won't get it in Green Bay. I would take Ferguson way before Winovich.

Ross Uglem's picture

good lord no. There are basically no pass rushers with 8+ 3 cones. That's just too stiff to succeed in the NFL. I'll be extremely surprised if Ferguson is even on Green Bay's board.

Turophile's picture

Picks that are (imo) too high, include Burns (#3), Hockenson (#6), Risner (#11), Oruwariye (#16), Winovich (#23) .

Picks that are too low include Wilkins (#34) and Dillard (#38).

It's hard to have any kind of certainty where players will be taken within a few picks, but these guys stood out to me as being over/under valued.

I like the idea of TE Warring (ranked #124) with the Packers second 4th round pick (#118), like the upside. i wouldn't complain if they went for OG Dru Samia there, instead (ranked #125).

lowcsp's picture

Dont know why so many people are down on Winovich I would love to see GB pick him although I probably would rank him at 23 he sure should be in the conversation at #30 and a no brainier at #44 he could come In on day one an be a 3down player. Burns probably has more up side but he scares the heck out of me he could also be a guy that would only see the field on passing downs but thats the gambling you do picking these guys

Community Guy's picture

agree Turophile.

Community Guy's picture

also Thornhill obviously had a great Combine, but most pundits are putting him in the 3rd round.. tape and workout are not the same.

stockholder's picture

Ross is the only guy that Has Thornhill that high. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Ross should break down his tape and show us what he sees.

jannes bjornson's picture

Thornhill like Chauncey-Gardener are rated from the three to the second depending on need choices. They both are 4.45 guys like Abram. They both played CB then went FS/slot CB. They have the range. Gardener is a better tackler. The Packers will probably go with a safety pick in the second rd. Abram will be off the board first if you want to have a guy give your D some spine in the middle. He's the anti-Dix. The others are cover guys. Adderley may be in the third.

stockholder's picture

Zedrick Woods S MIS; will be a better safety then Thornhill and Gardener.

jannes bjornson's picture

Diamond in the rough? THe other two can also play CB. Zedrick in the fourth as a PR and depth at FS, maybe.

Ross Uglem's picture

thank you for listing the guys that I have higher than national consensus.

ShooterMcGee's picture

This makes me wonder if a teams board reflects their needs? And does the board change when free agents are signed?

Cubbygold's picture

It definitely does

Doug Niemczynski's picture

Didn't he take a knee for the national anthem?

Cubbygold's picture

Find more important things to care about

BoCallahan's picture

Taking a knee is allowed in high school and college sports. Players have the right to freely express their position within the confines of the rules. NFL players have the right to freely express their position within the confines of the rules. The rules of the NFL state that you stand or you remain in the locker room until the anthem has concluded. If a player disagrees with the rules, he can seek employment elsewhere. Doug N. has just as much right to hold his position as Cubbygold has to disagree with it. That’s one of the things that makes America great.

Very Very classy farewell from Cobb online!

Back up,QB
Kizer may develop into a good quarterback in the future, but I’m not convinced he can lead the Packers to a couple of victories if Rodgers had to miss a few weeks. In two seasons in the NFL, Kizer has thrown 11 touchdowns with 24 interceptions.
There’s a reason why the Rams recently signed Blake Bortles, the Chargers signed Tyrod Taylor and the Saints brought back Teddy Bridgewater. All three teams are contenders and have gone for experienced backup options. All three quarterbacks can fill in short-term and help their teams win games.
That said, many of the top free agent QBs are now off the market. If the Packers want an experienced backup, Josh McCown would be an option if he decides to play in 2019.

Dragon5's picture

FWIW Kizer is an 11 life path just like Josh Rosen. Athletic ability is there for both of them...how they develop their skillset and be coached up is another matter. Both had similar 1st year resumes.

albert999's picture

and?

11 life path

porupack's picture

Life path is what you make of it. Not what someone prescribes by a set of coincidental numbers.

Mine, continues to be blazed; 1 + 1 (one day at a time)

jannes bjornson's picture

Affirmative Albert, plain as day this organization need s to take a more proactive approach to the backup QB. The "it" factor shows up in QBs when they see tthe real action. Right now, nobody's home in Packertown. Maybe a guy gets released they can bring on board?

Ross - I appreciate that you aren’t just “mocking with the crowd” and you have done the time and formed your own opinions. I find the Bush over White rating interesting (based on what I’ve read) but I haven’t done the film study and you have.

There are so many possibilities for the Packers and I’m excited to see how it all plays out. Day 1 should be pretty fun to watch.

There are too many good prospects for me to worry.

albert999's picture

#12 offensive line
#30 edge

EdsLaces's picture

That's super high for Thornhill, and low for White. I dont think Adderly is as good as Chauncey Gardner either, but other than that nicely done. Appreciate the work you put in, cant wait for the draft !

Packer Dave's picture

Great work, I was hoping an article like this would come out soon.

Good bet one of Oliver, Hock, Fant or Williams is there when we're on the clock.

sherrmann1806's picture

If the packers could get somehow, someway.... devin white and a Christian wilkins in the first round......namely a future top five LB in the NFL and arguably the best D linemen and also the best interior pass rusher in Wilkins in the first round.................then ,maybe for kicks and giggles or incredibly good luck...land a guy like Lawrence the massive run stuffing DT from Clemson and or...Tre Lamar the dominating middle LB from clemson and land a quality safety...........they will in short order...transform the Packers Defense into one of the best units in the NFL in the years to come!!
I know their are other very talented game changers that the Packers can get besides White and Wilkins then would also significantly upgrade the team! White and Wilkins are my personal favorites on the defensive side of the football!!

Ross thanks for providing your draft analysis. Is there any reason you left Edge player Jaylon Ferguson from LA Tech off your draft board?

Ross Uglem's picture

there is basically no history of a player testing as poorly as he did succeeding in the NFL.

jannes bjornson's picture

Ferguson was up ten pound at 271 for his Pro day and ran a 4.75 40. with 24 on the bench.
Some have him as a 4-3 DE not 3-4OLB/ edge guy and projecting a 3 technique for Inside pass rusher if he continues to add mass. Montgomery worked him out. He will be picked in the second rd.

4thand10's picture

Here is a free one. Get this guy before the Pats do. He has Wes Walker, Julian Edleman, Danny Amedola written all over him. This is the Slot / PR KR the Pack needs.

13 - DE Clelin Ferrell 6-5, 263 Clemson JR
14 - TE TJ Hockenson 6-5, 251 Iowa RSO

Pack may get one of 4 guys or will they trade down with Skins/Jints?

Most mocks have Taylor and Hock off the board before 12. If so, good chance either or both Oliver (undersized dynamo) or Sweat (heart ailment) will be available at 12. If so, one of those two guys could be Pack's pick. OTOH, Taylor & Hock are in play as well. Any of four would be most welcome in GB.

Would the Pack trade down? Somebody might want the 3rd or 4th QB badly enough to make this trade. e.g., Skins at 15 or NYG at 17 could both be interested in getting ahead of Miami to get their guy. Pack would pick up an extra R2 pick, giving them 2 1s, 2 2s, 3 and 2 4s. Pack could then use a R4 pick trade up into R3 so as to pair up in rounds 1-3. That would be pretty exciting. However, I would probably stay at 12.

Dark horses in trade down scenario: Devin Bush, a top CB or S, OL, WR or even DL. 17 seems to me to be too high for Fant.

4thand10's picture

I wouldn’t trade down, we pick before the Vikings at each and every turn. They need OL TE RB WR also. Since we have flex maybe we can fill needs and play keep away:-)

Doug Niemczynski's picture

Ask yourselves. How can Hockenson be off the board in most mock drafts before #12 if he is NOT a premium player? Somebody has a screw loose and it ain't me.

Archie's picture

The temptation is to use the Pack's top picks to finish the defensive rebuild in GB. I couldn't fault the Pack for taking that path.

OTOH, 12 is the franchise and he needs help. I could see using pick 30 to take an OL and 44 to take TE Irv Smith.

Obviously if Hock is the pick at 12, pick 44 could be a S.

APR 25!

Barnacle's picture

Archie

I lean towards a great defense and with a good HC we will get enough out of AR to succeed.

Archie's picture

Taylor & Lindstrom in R1? Could happen.

It all starts up front. Take these 2 OTs and a young TE and the OL will be set for the rest of 12's career. Tempting.

jannes bjornson's picture

Probably one or the other this year as Gutekunst has brought Turner on board to play either the LG or RG position. He can cover for Bulaga, if necessary. I would lean on an OT from one of the One picks , alternating with DT/Edge , then go safety at #44. If you have Bulaga or Daniels go down for any amount of time, or for that matter Bhaktiari, you have to have your bases covered. A skinny CB isn't going to stop the running game and a TE will not stop a bull rush. Its football.

Dzehren's picture

Archie- GUTE should play to the strength of the draft which is defensive front 7. I agree that OL should also be addressed in the first 3 rounds and add another OL in 4th or 5th.

lowcsp's picture

with the strength of the draft being on defense that also means that the first 11 picks could be 3 qbs an 8 defensive players that would leave GB the chance to pick the best ol in the draft and being a deep defensive draft you can get good value later

Dzehren's picture

Lowcsp- I would be very happy if the best OL in the draft fell to GB @12 and going front 7 @ pick 30.

Jim Frank's picture

The Pack should take the players they rate best no matter the position. But if I had my way, I would draft 10 linemen for the offense and defense. Great front five or front seven play makes the game easier for all the other players.

Madfan's picture

Thanks for all the hard -- but hopefully enjoyable -- work putting this together. I presume this is developed with GB's schemes in mind.

I'll comment on three.

I had Jonah Williams fairly high on my list as he is on this list. But with a RAS of 5.46 I'm going to think about him again.

I see Risner as too high for the Packer blocking. I can see him that high for another team, but for GB I'd have him in the 20s or 30s.

I don't question the position for Ferrell, but with the addition of the Smiths, I see a lot of overlap. I envisioned Ferrell providing some inside rush on passing downs. He may have a quick first step, but from what I've read he doesn't seen to have the balance to retain his quickness in his second and third steps.

Ross Uglem's picture

you should go back and watch Dalton zone block in the Senior Bowl. Dominant. Just because the school he played for didn't call a ton of zone doesn't mean he can't run it.

lowcsp's picture

I would really like to to see them take a OL in the first Dalton would be great at 30 if there . But i also really wanted GB to take T.Mandarich back in the day so take my comments with a grain of salt.

Tad Ottman's picture

Interesting that you have DK Metcalf so high on the Packers board. What role do you see him in if the Packers drafted him? Slot or outside?

Ross Uglem's picture

DK would play outside as he did in college.

KnockTheSnotOutOfYou's picture

I am somewhat intrigued with this OG named Garrett Bradbury with a 9.95 RAS score. Does anyone know much about him? He runs under 5.0 in 40 yds and bench pressed 225 a total of 34 times. Is he just a workout warrior or is he a real football player?

he's not at OG and that's the problem. Bradbury is a center prospect only. He'll probably be a very good center for a long time, but if you don't need a center he's a difficult add.

I would rather be safe than sorry, especially with every draft pick being so crucial to our rebuilding.

And, that's another reason I want Hock at #12.

You guys get the best of both worlds. If I am right about Hockenson you will all be thanking me we took him at #12. And, if he sucks, well than I'm done posting on this website and you be thanking me again for being gone. So, its a win-win for Cheesehead TV.

This is really well done. My only quibble is that David Long of Michigan should be much, much higher.
