Packers 2011 Mock Draft.

 

It's never to early to take a look at next years draft. With that said, here is a possible mock draft scenario for the Green Bay Packers next April. Make sure you take a look at Mocking The Draft's 2012 NFL Mock Draft too. 

 

Round 1- David DeCastro/OG/Stanford- Ted Thompson has spent the last two first round draft choices on offensive tackles. Now it's time to move towards the interior of the offensive line. Drafting DeCastro would mean the Packers would have their five starters along the offensive line for the foreseeable future.

 

Round 2- Robert Lester/S/Alabama- Morgan Burnett is a star in the making but Nick Collins has probably played his last NFL game which means the Packers need a new safety.

 

Round 3- Stephen Gilmore/CB/South Carolina- I know the Packers have Tramon Williams and rising star Sam Shields on their roster. I also understand they have this guy named Charles Woodson. However, Woodson is getting on in years and the Packers understand that in this league you need to stop the pass.

 

Round 4- Kheeston Randall/DE/DT/Texas- The Packers need help on the front line and in a 3-4, you need players who can play both inside and out. Randall is one such player.

 

Round 5- A.J. Jenkins/WR/Illinois- I know the Packers have 47,000 pass catchers as it is. However, Donald Driver is only getting older and the Packers want to keep the “fab five” concept going with the wide receivers. Jenkins is a project receiver, which the Packers like.

 

Round 6- Edwin Baker/RB/Michigan State- The Packers will probably attempt to save money in the backfield for the next 5-7 years which means they will have to keep finding quality projects at the running back position. This is something they excel at though. I also expect them to cut Ryan Grant loose at the end of the season.

 

Round 7- Keith Tandy/CB/West Virginia- The Packers have three quality good corners right now along and they Morgan Burnett at safety. If they draft both Lester and Gilmore that will give them six good defensive backs. However, Woodson doesn't really count because of his age and the depth behind those six, well, they stink. At everything.

 

Undrafted Free Agents

B.J. Coleman/QB/Tennessee-Chattanooga- At the end of this season, Matt Flynn gets to walk away a free man which means the Packers will need another QB because Graham Harrell hasn't shown any reason as to why he could be a backup. Coleman has pro skills that need to be developed. Perfect place to do that is Green Bay.

 

Jaymes Brooks/OG/Virginia Tech. The Packers need to ad depth to the offensive line. Brooks would be a good place to start in that process.
