Draft Day Scenario

This Green Bay Packers' defence has gotten steadily worse over the course of this season, almost ensuring the Packers' 2014 NFL Draft will look very similar to the 2012 NFL Draft, a draft in which Ted Thompson spent his first six draft picks on the defensive side of the ball.

If the Packers do go defence in the first round of the NFL Draft, then it will likely be a Nose Tackle, an Inside Linebacker or a Free Safety.

The top Nose Tackle in the class is unanimously seen as Louis Nix, out of Notre Dame. Considered a top 10 pick before the season, he has slipped in mock drafts due to a combination of decreased production (mainly due to facing double and triple teams) and a knee injury that required him to have surgery and resulted in Nix missing numerous games throughout the season.

The leading Inside Linebacker is Alabama's C.J. Mosley, a three down linebacker who is adept at rushing the passer, stopping the run, and dropping back into coverage. The gap between him and the next best inside linebacker is astronomical.

The best Free Safety class is widely considered to be Ha'Sean (Ha Ha) Clinton-Dix, also a member of the Crimson Tide. However, Calvin Pryor, out of Louisville, is a prospect who I believe could end up be the first FS drafted, especially with a good Combine performance.

I have gone back and forth on who I felt the Packers should draft, and have settled on C.J. Mosley if he is available as the gap between himself and the next best Inside Linebacker is unbelievable.
