First Round

We have a trade! The Packers trade their 1st round pick (#21 overall) to the New England Patriots for the Patriots 1st round pick (#29 overall), and 3rd round pick (#93 overall) and 6th round pick (# 198 overall).

First Round (#29 overall)

C.J. Mosley ILB Alabama

UserPostedImage

Will provide an instant upgrade over Brad Jones. Great instincts and is always around the ball.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1762120/cj-mosley

STRENGTHS: Mosley does a nice job using his length and lower body fluidity to keep himself clean through a crowd and finishes at the ball, wrapping and driving through his target. He is very smart and keeps his eyes on the ball to track and attack and rarely makes mental mistakes, which is a result of his high football IQ and preparation skills.

WEAKNESSES: Isn't always fundamentally consistent as a tackler, at times opting to throw himself at his target or drop his head on contact. Missed time in 2011 with a dislocated elbow.

COMPARES TO: Lavonte David, LB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Like David, Mosley's combination of toughness, elite instincts and superb athleticism offer the versatility of lining up inside or out, and have enabled him to be one of the nation's top all-around linebackers.

2nd Round (#53 overall)

Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt

UserPostedImage

Big, physical receiver who also runs very good routes. Only lacks elite speed.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1785887/jordan-matthews

STRENGTHS: Chiseled frame that was more impressive than higher-profile names also at the Senior Bowl. Size/speed combination along with his hand/eye coordination and body control makes him an attractive prospect, showing the ability to make plays at all levels of the field and do damage after the catch.

Balanced route-runner with a sizeable catching radius. Size allowed him to be moved inside and out in Vandy's offense, allowing the team to find him favorable matchups. Detailed and reliable route-runner. Very good hand-eye coordination to haul in tough passes, including one-handed catches.

WEAKNESSES: Good, but not great build-up speed and may lack an elite second gear to gain separation. Lean-muscled and needs to do more in contested situations.

3rd Round

We have a trade!. The Packers trade their 3rd round pick (#85 overall) and their 4th round pick (#121 overall) to the Buffalo Bills for the Bills 3rd round pick (#73 overall).

3rd Round (#73 overall)

Terrence Brooks FS Florida St.

UserPostedImage

Excellent cover Safety who has also played cornerback. Lacks only ideal size.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1737623/terrence-brooks

STRENGTHS: While a touch shorter than scouts would prefer, Brooks looks the part of an NFL free safety, boasting broad shoulders, a well-built frame and trim waist. He possesses good balance, agility and straight-line speed, including an impressive burst to close.

A former cornerback who is asked to drop down and cover slot receivers, on occasion, demonstrating good balance, fluidity and change of direction for coverage. Brooks is more physical than you might expect given his cornerback background, often dropping down into a linebacker-like role for the Seminoles.

Long arms and good balance to play off blocks and make plays near the line of scrimmage amid traffic. A big-hitter who seems to enjoy the physicality of the game. Flashes strong hands for the interception, as well as the ability to track over his shoulder (North Carolina State). Good special teams player.

WEAKNESSES: Only has two seasons of starting action after spending his early career with the Seminoles in backup duty at cornerback. Below average height for the position, though his strength and leaping ability make him less of a liability in jump-ball situations than it might appear.

Highly aggressive defender who will lower his shoulder and fail to wrap up, leading to some missed tackles. Unreliable hands for the interception. Let several "easy" interceptions slip through his fingers in 2013.

COMPARES TO: Louis Delmas, Detroit Lions: Neither boasts the imposing size scouts would prefer but the instincts, athleticism and closing speed are there to overcome it.

3rd Round (#93 overall)

Dakota Dozier G/OT Furman

UserPostedImage

Played LT at Furman (Doesn't every O-Lineman that Ted Thompson drafts?) but played Guard at The Shrine Game and did well. Could be a bit of a project, but lots of upside.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1687575/dakota-dozier

STRENGTHS: Well-proportioned, athletic-looking, muscular frame. Exhibits light feet, a fluid kick-slide, and is a natural bender. Gets good arm extension to keep defenders out of his chest, and utilizes his lower half well to establish leverage on contact and absorb the power rush. Quick off the snap as a run blocker, and gets off the line and into the hole swiftly when asked to trap or pull. Shows good awareness on the move and does a good job of utilizing active hands to hold sequential defenders at bay and maintain course through contact. Can break down and change direction rapidly and exhibits impressive body control to maintain balance in tight spaces, particularly when firing through the line to the second level.

WEAKNESSES: Will over-extend off the snap, or simply set his feet too early in pass protection leaving him susceptible to being stood up and pushed back, or swatted to the side. Gets too far out and over his feet at times on the move, and will whiff or drop his head as a result. Appears to possess some natural power but it doesn't consistently show up on contact. Played mostly tackle at Furman but may need to move to guard due to lacking ideal length to play tackle at the next level.

3rd Round (#98 overall)

C.J. Fiedorowicz TE Iowa

UserPostedImage

Huge Tight End who is a good blocker and has good speed for his size.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1737104/cj-fiedorowicz

STRENGTHS: Good versatility, showing the ability to come off a down block to get past defenders as a receiver. Good body control and soft hands for such a large man, traits that have led Washington junior Austin Seferian-Jenkins to earn a lot of attention as a possible first-round pick. Fiedorowicz isn't as flashy as ASJ, but he's just as big and fast in a straight-line and is a much more physical and attentive blocker.

5th Round (#161 Overall)

Bennett Jackson CB Notre Dame

UserPostedImage

Solidly built CB who plays well against big WR's, a must in the NFCN.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1749630/bennett-jackson

5th round (#176 overall)

Ryan Carrethers DT Arkansas St.

UserPostedImage

Powerfully built DT who did 32 reps at the Combine.

6th Round (#197 overall)

Marqueston Huff DB Wyoming

UserPostedImage

Versatile player who played CB until moving to FS as a senior. Showed good cover skills at the Senior Bowl.

6th Round (#198 overall)

Avery Williamson ILB Kentucky

UserPostedImage

Active player who stays on the field on passing downs.

Derrell Johnson OLB East Carolina

UserPostedImage

Good edge rusher who lacks cover skills.

Anybody who drafts a guy named Dakota has to be out of his freaking mind!

BTW, Joe, this is kind of a joke... kind of... I like your picks a lot, as well as the trades.

Pretty good mock draft - hit all our needs with the top three picks. Really like the huge DT project.

Joe I could never put together a draft half as well as this but I will say NO!!! to a safety who has issues wrapping up the ball carrier and misses tackles. Seen that too many times, don't want to go back there ever again.

I'd be stoked if we came away with Jordan Matthews (or Jeremy Butler).

Id take that draft in a heartbeat! Not too thrilled about the S options though.

Doesn't matter on the safety, because Micah Hyde is playing SS this year and beyond. Might as well draft another corner instead.
