2014 NFL Draft: Packers Mock Draft Roundup for May 6

New, comments

This will be our final mock draft roundup of the year, as it's still C.J. Mosley as the top candidate for the Packers.

Ronald Martinez

I won't make you wait to read through all of these mock drafts to get to the point - when just about everybody is projecting a single player to the same team at pick 21, you can bet that something weird is going to happen that throws a wrench into everybody's plans. Still, if the Packers do follow the mock drafts and end up taking Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley, I will be one happy camper, and I suspect Dom Capers will be as well.

We run down the picks for several mock drafts from around the internet in our last effort to conglomerate all of these predictions in one place.

ESPN (Todd McShay)

C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama

Green Bay has spent its past eight first-round picks on offensive line or defensive front-seven players, so Mosley would keep the streak going. His long-term durability is a bit of a question mark because he was banged up at Alabama, but he is a relentless and very productive playmaker. He'd be a nice addition to the Packers defense and a good value at this point in the draft.

The MMQB (Peter King)

C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama

I wanted to put Ryan Shazier here, and that could well be Ted Thompson’s pick. But the Packers have to like Mosley’s nose for the ball, and Green Bay’s need at inside linebacker is big. This is a logical pick, and Thompson’s a logical man.

The MMQB (Greg Bedard)

Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

For a 3-4 team, the Packers are extremely small up front and that’s been a problem for them. It’s time to inject some girth in there, and Ted Thompson makes amends for the Justin Harrell pick in 2007.

SB Nation (Ryan Van Bibber)

C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama

Maybe Mosley doesn't really fall this far on Thursday night. That would be a dream scenario for Green Bay, a team that needs a commanding presence in the middle of its defense.

NFL.com (Daniel Jeremiah)

Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington

Seferian-Jenkins would provide Aaron Rodgers with an enormous red-zone target.

Sorry, Daniel, but I can't see any reasonable way that Ted Thompson would pass on Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (who he has going 22 to Philadelphia) for ASJ.

NFL.com (Charlie Casserly)

Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame

Tuitt will start in his first year at defensive end. The Packers need a safety, but there are none left with first-round abilities.

NFL.com (Bucky Brooks)

C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama

Dom Capers would tap into Mosley's versatile skills as a three-down linebacker in the Packers' exotic 3-4 scheme.

Brooks also has the Packers picking the following players in order in rounds 2 through 4:

2.53 Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State
3.85 Brock Vereen, S, Minnesota
3.98 Arthur Lynch, TE, Georgia
4.121 Jake Murphy, TE, Utah

So what do you think? Will Mosley fall to 21, where Thompson can scoop him up? Will he go with Ryan Shazier instead, or throw us all a curveball and go away from the front seven? Let us know what you think in the comments.
