Packers 2014 NFL Draft Predictions

This is still a good team that just needs to keep adding quality players throughout the lineup as opposed to having one specific gaping need that requires filling at the draft. Rodgers makes everyone look good but the Pack would be wise to upgrade around him, especially at TE where Jermichael Finley is just too injury prone.

Lastly, given their success in developing quarterback maybe it is time to draft someone who can learn under Rodgers and would be a more adequate replacement should be get hurt again.

Top Pick Target
[soliloquy id=”82219″]
DE – Kony Ealy – I know the above said there should probably be a focus on offense but with their first pick they could get a disruptive edge rusher. Ealy might have been overshadowed at Mizzou by Michael Sam but he is a player with a great size/speed ratio. You can never have too many good pass rushers so even though they grabbed Julius Peppers already both he and Clay Matthew have some wear on the tires. Ealy is electric.

Other potential gets

WR Brandin Cooks – With a guy like Rodgers at the helm it never hurts to have a guy who is a master at getting open. Cooks does not have the best speed and certainly not the best size but he runs good routes and can make guys miss once he has the ball. As a second or third option it is easy to see him catching 7 balls per game in this offense.

TE Jace Amaro – Coming out of Texas Tech you know Amaro can run routes and catch the ball. It was amazing how big a part of the passing attack he was last season with more than 100 catches. The thing I really like about him is that he has really good size with enough speed to keep defenses honest down the middle. He also has a bit of a mean streak and burns a little hot. On a team where he can contribute and blend he should be fine. It is tough to find trouble in Green Bay.

QB Jordan Lynch – I really hope someone gives Lynch a shot. I am not sure he can be a starter in the NFL but I think he could be a perfect backup, one who changes things up a little with his running ability and just doesn’t make mistakes. Playing up at Northern Illinois I am sure he would dig playing for the Packers and would become a cult favourite with a few rushing TDs and short yardage gains.  Maybe with their last pick.
