Green Bay Packers 2017 Mock Draft

Packers mock draft 2017
The Green Bay Packers lost again last week, this time on the road against the Washington Redskins. This drops the Packers to 4-6 on the season. There are massive changes coming to this organization at the end of the season, so we thought it might be a good time to do our annual check in on the Packers draft prospects for next May. All draft choices are based on us expecting the Packers to draft somewhere between the 10th or 15th spot in each round.

Round One: Teez Tabor/CB/Florida- Yes, that is the name of an actual person, not a gamer tag or screen name. With all of the injuries and the way the season has played out, the Packers top need suddenly switches to corner back. Quinten Rollins and Damarious Randall, who has been injured for most of the season, are good, but in this passing league, you need a lot of good in the secondary. Sam Shields may never play again, so the Packers need a top shut down corner. Tabor is a top of the depth chart all-pro shutdown type of corner, and the Packers need that.

Round Two: Royce Freeman/RB/Oregon- The Eddie Lacy era in Green Bay should be over. The Packers have given him every chance in the world, and this latest injury didn't help. The final straw should be the report that he gained back all the weight he lost during the offseason. At 5'11”, 230 pounds, Freeman is big bruiser who would fit well in the cold weather of Green Bay.

Round Three: Carlos Watkins/DT/DE/Clemson- At 6'5”, 305 pounds, Watkins is the prototypical collegiate defensive tackle who get's moved to a 3-4 end in the NFL. The Packers could use some fresh bodies up front, and Watkins would allow the Packers to move Kenny Clark back inside, where they want him.

Round Four: Tyrone Crowder/OG/Clemson- The Packers need to shore up the interior of the offensive line. At 6'2”, 340 pounds, Crowder is a big athletic guard who translates well to the NFL. In a year or two, he could replace T.J. Lang, on the left side of the line.

Round Five: Marlon Mack/RB/South Florida- The Packers need running backs, and they need them badly right now. Mack would offer a change of pace to Freeman.

Round Six: Cam Serigne/TE/Oregon- The Packers could use a third tight end as well out of this draft. Serigne is a blocking tight end who would fit that role.

Round Seven: Austin Rehkow/P/Idaho- The best punter in this draft and the Packers need one.
