Since this is turning into a impromptu mock draft thread

1st Round: Guinness. Solid first choice. Has a blue collar background though there are worries of over exposure of late
2nd Round: Stella Artois. Polished product from a pedigree background
3rd Round: Blue Moon. Can't go wrong with this pick at this spot.
3rd Round Comp: Samaul Adams Seasonal. At this point, a pure value pick
4th Round: Fat Tire. Great production at current level but some worries over playing weight.
5th Round: Dos Equis Amber. Rotational option.
5th Round Comp: Newcastle Brown Ale. Good potential but either you hate this pick or love it at this spot
6th Round: Budweiser. Filler pick. Probably a product of the system rather than any real talent.
7th Round: Coors Light. See Budweiser analysis.

Wait, what kind of draft are we talking about here? Oh that draft! [grin1]

Two things I have learned from using 1st pick.
1. The names of players who don't go to Ohio State, and what rnds guys are expected to be drafted.
It's going to make watching the draft this year a little more interesting.

.2. Every draft I have done(and that's a lot), 1 of the top 10 players in the draft always seem to fall to 21, Ebron, Clinton-Dix, Dennard, Evans, Nix, Arnold, if that happens I see Ted grabbing whichever guy it is(the value just to high not to take at 21).

I have 2 that I will go with.

Using 1st pick....in the 1st Clinton-Dix fell to 21.

Stayed pat throughout the draft,came up with thi result:


Round 1 Pick 21: Hasean Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
Round 2 Pick 21: Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
Round 3 Pick 21: Deone Bucannon, SS, Washington State
Round 3 Pick 34 (COMP): Keith McGill, CB, Utah
Round 4 Pick 21: Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas
Round 5 Pick 21: Michael Schofield, OT, Michigan
Round 5 Pick 36 (COMP): David Fales, QB, San Jose State
Round 6 Pick 21: TJ Jones, WR, Notre Dame
Round 7 Pick 21: Rob Blanchflower, TE, Massachusetts

Since it's very improbable Clinton-Dix will fall to 21, I am also posting this draft.
I traded down to 30 since all the "big name" players were taken before 21.
Used those trade picks to move up in the 4th, 5th and 6th rnds.

Although this draft didn't score as mu "highest" according to 1st pick.
I like the guys that were available when I drafted, would take these guys anytime to keep the "Draft and Develop" going in Green Bay.


Round 1 Pick 30 (S.F.): Kony Ealy, DE, Missouri
Round 2 Pick 21: Marqise Lee, WR, Southern California
Round 3 Pick 21: Deone Bucannon, SS, Washington State
Round 3 Pick 34 (COMP): Anthony Johnson, DT, LSU
Round 4 Pick 2 (WASH): Yawin Smallwood, ILB, Connecticut
Round 4 Pick 21: Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia
Round 5 Pick 10 (JAX): Dontae Johnson, FS, North Carolina State
Round 5 Pick 36 (COMP): Tyler Starr, OLB, South Dakota
Round 6 Pick 2 (WASH): David Fales, QB, San Jose State

Holy Crap buckeye! Your first 4 picks would go a very long way towards solving any problems we have on D. Keith McGill at the end of R3 would be a nice way to finish that off - though would like to see an ILB in there. And with your 2nd set, Kony Ealy and Anthony Johnson are big dudes. Getting Smallwood at the top of R4 would be big.

Hey, anyone think we may take a stab at DE Kareem Martin 6-6 266 out of North Carolina? Someone for fellow NC alumni Julius Peppers to mentor? Almost a prototype. He had 78 tackles last year, 20 for loss and 11 sacks. I could see it.

Wade all your trading down would drive me crazy. I would be a sniper in a bell tower somewhere and people would be wondering why. When I mumbled something about that damn "Uncle Teddy" no one outside this board would have a clue since I have no Uncle named Teddy, Ted or Theodore.

Postal.

Yeah, I understand this draft is perceived to be deep, but you do want to get the best players you can out of a deep draft. Not to mention, for a real mock, there has to be some realistic expectations of the kinds of trades that can be made. Trades are not easy to pull off. I would imagine there will be a ton of teams wanting to trade down for the same reasons many in the draft game do.

Maybe this is the year Ted finds partners to trade up, as well as down. He does seem pretty masterful when it comes to closing draft day deals. All I care is that he lands some really good players for us. If he somehow walks away with 5 really solid players at their respective positions, I'll be happy and consider this team improved. Having 4 in the top 100 to start is a big help.

Buckeye, since Clinton-Dix actually DID last until #21 in your stand pat draft, why would you say you don't think he will last that long? In most of the mock drafts I've seen, he is still there. I like that one of yours mainly because you went back for another Safety in the 3rd round too.

Wade, as I have said, with the Packer propensity to cross-train O-Linemen to play Center and to not do a lot of sophisticated stuff from the Center position, I really don't think they should or will draft a Center until very late if at all.

Out of curiosity, which mocks have Dix available at 21? I think all of the nfl.com and a few others I've looked at all have him gone by the Rams at 13 or Bears at 14. I'd be ecstatic if he fell to us, mind you.

Yeah, I've seen him in the 10-15 range. But, stocks do fall, and maybe his does. I still question whether or not he is all of that. Is it his SEC experience that is driving up his stock? Because, to me, there are a handful more guys playing the position with equal or better skills/measureables. Pure, layman's fan perspective though. Sure, he is a good player and I would't mind at all if he were our pick. Not one bit.

Agree on the mocks. I haven't seen him falling.
