Green Bay Packers Mock Draft 2016 | Ticket King

Packers 2016 Mock Draft
College football players test their raw physical skills and talents with numerous scouts from every NFL team watching every year at the NFL combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. Another combine has come and gone, so I thought it was high time for me to release my first edition of my Packers mock draft.

Round One: Hunter Henry/TE/Arkansas- The Packers top priority overall in this draft is adding some fresh young legs to their stale skill positions on offense. I like Richard Rodgers, but the Packers really need a pass catching tight end, especially one who can stretch the field. Henry is just that.

Round Two: Will Fuller/WR/Notre Dame- Expecting a 31-year-old Jordy Nelson coming off a torn ACL, who's calling card is speed, jump ball and double move, to return to form is both unfair to him and unreasonable for the Packers to expect. They need to add a vertical threat in the draft. My original idea was Corey Coleman, but he may not be around when the Packers go to draft in round one. So I instead opted for Henry, and will take Fuller here in round two.

Round Three: Dominique Alexander/ILB/Oklahoma- Alexander is undersized, but about athletic as it gets. The Packers could use more athleticism at the inside linebacker spot, especially one who excels at blitzing and pass coverage.

Round Four: Joel Haeg/OT/North Dakota State- The Packers offensive line battled through injuries last season. All five week one starters missed time at some point. When they are all together, they are one of the best in the business. Yes, they all missed time, but for Bulaga, it's just injury after injury throughout his entire career. At some point they need to cut the cord and move on from him. Haeg is a pass blocking specialist who fits the Packers system perfectly, and could replace Bulaga in short order.

Round Five: Jerrell Adams/TE/South Carolina- In addition to a pass catcher, the Packers also need a run blocker at tight end out of this draft. Adams can line up both off tackle, and in the slot, which gives him good versatility in this offense. But, the most important aspect he will bring to this franchise is his run blocking, which is really, really good.

Round Six: Aaron Green/RB/TCU- Eddie Lacy battled weight issues all season but will return at his normal weight next season. In fact, he is already down a considerable amount of weight if you look at a recent photo of his on Twitter. The Packers can get at least one more season out of Starks. However, they do have a big hole at the third running back spot, and could use an upgrade. Green is a home run hitter who relies on speed, which could be a perfect fit considering the skill sets of Lacy and Starks.

Round Seven: Ian Seau/OLB/Nevada- The nephew of the late NFL legend Junior Seau, Ian is a perfect fit for a 3-4 defense as an edge rusher. Seau has a nice frame for a 3-4 outside linebacker and is a good project that could turn into something down the road.
