    Round 1 - Brooks Reed - OLB - Arizona
    Round 2 - Clint Boling - OG - Georgia
    Round 3 - Drake Nevis - DT - LSU
    Round 3 [Compensatory] - Niles Paul - WR - Nebraska
    Round 4 - John Moffit - OG - Wisconsin
    Round 5 - Chris Culliver - CB - South Carolina
    Round 6 - Adam Grant - OT - Arizona
    Round 7 - John Graves - DT - Virginia Tech

    These are based upon the estimated round of draft these guys will go. I think it is balanced, but without home run. These are guys we can bring along slowly and let them learn our system. I am lacking a high round OT, but after the first round, I think there is a talent dropoff for tackles.

    Me personally, I don't like Brooks Reed at 1st, I think it's a reach.
    Also Boling? Any reason for him being the pick? You envision Watkins and Hudson all gone?
    And isn't Drake Nevis a 4-3 guy?

    I like the Niles Paul and the John Moffit picks, though.

    Three OL players and no QB?

    Packers 2011 Mock Draft
    With 9 picks, I wanted to project some trades from Teddy Thompson, but will stick with the picks for now because finding trade partners isn't easy and I have no idea what the possible new rookie wage scale will be like, and how it will affect the trade value chart.

    Round 1, #32: DE CAMERON HEYWARD, Ohio State; 6-5, 296

    A phenomenal value at #32, he will make the transition from Cullen Jenkins a little less painful. Along with Mike Neal, it's an extremely talented pair of DEs with great size to anchor the line with Raji in the middle. Ryan Pickett and CJ Wilson will play ahead of Heyward early, but IronHead2 might prove to be too good to keep on the bench much. Still, he will make us all forget about that stupid fool Johnny Jolly and will give the Packers a solid 6-man DL rotation featuring: Raji, Pickett, Neal, Howard Green, CJ Wilson, and Heyward. Jarius Wynn still figures in the mix as someone is likely to be injured (Neal might be that guy)



    Round 2: #64 OLB SAM ACHO,Texas; 6-2, 259

    Samuel Onyedikachi Acho is a Dallas native whose middle name means "one who is like God".
    Won the Wuerffel Trophy (all-around excellence in athletic, academic and community achievement) and ARA Sportsmanship Award. Ted Thompson likes his players to be good people, and not Johnny Jolly-like stupid criminals. Acho is a good dude, and while not quite Brian Orakpo, he has the skills to get to NFL QBs. Other possibilities for the Packers 2nd pick as OLBers are Jeremy Beal (Oklahoma), Brooks Reed (Arizona) and Jabaal Sheard (Pittsburgh). One of these guys will slide to #64.


    Round 3: #96 OT JOSEPH BARKSDALE, LSU; 6-5, 325

    I think this guy has a chance to become a very good NFL Offensive Tackle, and one day could have people wondering why the guy was taken so low when we see big busts that look like him taken in the first rounds.
    I don't understand why this guy is not a consensus round 2 guy..... I suspect he will go earlier than this and we'd have to trade up to get him, which won't happen. Why he's rated this low, I don't know.

    Round 4: #129 WR CECIL SHORTS III, Mount Union; 6-0, 205, 4.50-Forty
    The same school that produced Pierre Garcon for the Colts:
    Shorts had his third-straight 1,000 receiving season as he has a team-best 63 catches for 1,106 yards and 17 touchdowns.
    He also had 22 punt returns (16.1 yd average) with two touchdowns and nine kick returns (22.8 yd. average) and one touchdown.

    Comp: #131 CB CORTEZ ALLEN, The Citadel; 6-1, 197
    Solid kid, character, he has some skills as demonstrated at the NFL Combine in Indy. A classic Ted Thompson pick here (good size, physical, not a criminal) which could pay dividends down the road.


    Round 5: #163 CB DEMARCUS VAN ****, Miami, 6-1, 176, 4.25-Forty

    From The U like Sam Shields last year, Van **** is faster than schit, but raw. Like Shields was. The Packers went to the U well last year in Shields and this time they use the last pick in round 5 to take the speedy Van ****, who will add speed to the return game if he can catch the kicks/punts. He's over 6-feet tall, which is what Ted Thompson looks for in his CB's. He can easily add some muscle in the Packers program. Clay will help him out there.

    Round 6: #197 RB NOEL DEVINE, West Virginia; 5-8, 179, 4.32-Forty

    A projected a seventh-round pick by many experts. Devine's frame (5-7, 160) & nagging foot & toe injuries the past 2 seasons have caused his draft stock to level out as a late second-day option.
    A player with a similar body type & high-level collegiate production, Darren Sproles, was a fourth-round pick in 2005 (130th overall). Devine needs to add some muscle, but he's had success in high school in Florida (the best high school competition in the USA), and at the collegiate level at the highest level.
    Mike McCarthy has admitted that much of the Packers special teams return unit failures are because they just didn't have the personnel. Adding Devine, Van ****, and Shorts give McCarthy 3 guys who can run.

    Round 7 (from Car): #201 QB NATHAN ENDERLE, Idaho; 6-4, 240

    Round 7: #233 OLB JABARA WILLIAMS, Steven F Austin; 6-2, 228

    I really like that draft, Frank. A couple of weeks ago, I wouldn't have been sold on the Cameron Heyward pick, because I thought we had our starters in place and fairly adequate depth. But the more I think about it, the more I like it. Since that fool Jolly can't give up purple drank and Ryan Pickett is getting older, we need someone who can be a future starter alongside Neal and Raji.

    I really really really like Sam Acho. From what I've heard about him and in interviews with him, he is an extremely good guy and incredibly smart. He's not going to be drinking the aforementioned "purple drank" and he's got the smarts to make adjustments like Clay telling Pickett to "spill it" in the Super Bowl. Plus, he's a very good athlete, similar but not equal to Orakpo.

    Noel Devine, when healthy, is incredibly explosive and an above average pass-catcher. He would add another element to our already elite offense to make it even more dangerous. Great value in the sixth.

    I don't know as much about the other guys, but I'm liking the looks of those picks as well.

    Thanks. The problem is, well the odds are, that none of these guys will be taken by us!
    But I now have faith in Ted........ but I have to stop doing mocks and getting my hopes up!
