2013 Packers Mock Draft 1st Edition


Wait a minute, we just finished week four! Why are we worrying about next year's draft? Shouldn't we be worrying about this season first?

Well yes, expect for the fact that football is a business, and it's good business to plan for tomorrow before we get anywhere close to tomorrow. Here is my 1st edition of my Packers 2013 mock draft. This draft is based on the Packers drafting somewhere in the bottom fourth of each round and on CBS sports draft rankings.

Round 1: Terrance Williams/WR/Baylor- Yes they need a running back, yes they need a center, yes they need a corner(maybe), but there are no centers or running backs slotted to go at the end of the first round. CBS sports has Marcus Lattimore at #31 overall, but there is no way Lattimore last's beyond 15 or so. Terrance Williams is a talented receiver with nice size and speed who is slotted as a late first round draft choice.. I believe the Packers will run into some real issues soon if they don't make a serious receiver related personnel move or two. Williams would fit nicely with the Packers.

Round 2: Le'Veon Bell/RB/Michigan State- The Packers have plenty of jabs in this offense, they need a powerful uppercut. At 6'2" 244 pounds, Bell is a big boy who can provide just that. I don't think they are going to wait much longer for James "Humpty Dumpty" Starks to turn the corner.

Round 3: Akeem Spence/DT/DE/Illinois- Spence is a player with a high motor who would be a rotational player who could move to the outside and eventually replace Pickett as one of the starting defensive ends.

Round 4: Braxton Cave/C/Notre Dame- This one is simple, he would sit for a year, then take over for Saturday as the starter.

Round 5: Russell Shepard/WR/LSU- I know, this is the second receiver in this mock. Think about this one though. There is a chance, a decent chance, that after this season, the Packers could be left with Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and nothing else at the wide receiver position. Maybe James Jones, maybe. But that's it.

Round 6: Anthony Rashad White/DT/Michigan State- I still believe the Packers need to find someone who can give B.J. Raji a chance to breathe. White is a big body that can do that.

Round 7: Colin Anderson/TE/Furman- Believe it or not, the Packers may need a tight end next April. Anderson would be a good developmental project.

Well, thoughts?
