2017 Packers Mock Draft | Ticket King Green Bay

Wisconsin sports fans have their eyes on the NCAA tournament. They are just weeks away from Brewers opening day. What are we doing up here in Green Bay? We're talking about the Packers mock draft. For that, we turn to T.J. Bryce as he just polished his crystal ball, and is ready to throw down his mock draft picks for the Packers. 

Round 1: Takkarist McKinley/OLB/UCLA- This has been a strange off season so far for the Packers, hasn't it? Now their priority switches to corner-back, outside linebacker, and interior offensive lineman. You can find lots of good interior lineman in later rounds and this corner-back pool is maybe the deepest in decades. I know the “fanboys” want T.J. Watt in this spot. Yes I know he's a name you recognize and he played at Wisconsin. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. McKinley's a better player.

Round 2: Kevin King/CB/Washington- The Packers have enough zone and slot corners. They need a guy who can grow into an “ace cover man.” At 6'3”, closer to 6'4”, 200 pounds, King has the size and “measurable” to do just that.

Round 3: Jaleel Johnson/DT/DE/Iowa- At 6'3”, 320 pounds, Johnson can play either inside as a pass rushing nose tackle or outside as a run stopping defensive end. He’s a good rotational player and a good athlete. The Packers badly need some depth along that line, out of this draft.

Round 4: Nico Siragusa/OG/San Diego State- I originally had this man going to the Vikings a couple of months ago, but with the changes to both team's lines via free agency, the Packers have a need at guard. Siragusa could start playing on day one.

Round 5A: James Conner/RB/Pittsburgh- The Packers also need a running back out of this draft. At 5'11”, 235 pounds, Conner is a tough, cold weather slugger who gets even better in bad weather and it fits perfectly for this team in this climate.

Round 5B: Jarron Jones/DT/DE/Notre Dame- At 6'6”, 316 pounds, Jones is another good athlete who would make for a fantastic rotational player along line defensive line, one that can play either inside on passing downs or outside on rushing downs.

Round 6: Marquez White/CB/Florida State- The Packers could really use two corners out of this draft. White could make for a good nickel/dime slot corner and a special teams player.

Round 7: Corey Levin/OG/C/Chattanooga- Levin has the size and versatility to player either center or guard in the NFL as a backup. That’s a good fit for the Packers.
