2016 NFL mock draft: Packers pick a d-lineman right before Chiefs

New, comments

With the 27th pick in the 2016 Arrowhead Pride mock draft, Packers GM tsvo728 selects...

I can’t believe I got to pick the for the Packers. They are my second favorite team in the league. G.R.EE.N PACK! PACK! PACK!.

I think everyone on the planet agrees that gang green is going DL. With BJ Raji taking "hiatus", that need became desperate. Honestly though, they have some pretty glaring holes all over this team.

ILB is definitely a pressing need if they are ever going to move Clay Matthews back to his "natural position" (RB I think). Speaking of running backs, it isn’t exactly a strong suit for the Pack. Eddy Lacy seems to have washed himself out, and I don’t think anyone is ready to rely on James Starks for a full season.

Their WRs looked like hot ass without Jordy Nelson, which suggests they are ya know, hot ass. They don’t really have any strength in the OL. David Bakhtiari doesn’t look like he’ll be a franchise LT any time soon. I guess my point is, it’s kind of a weak roster. Aaron Rodgers wasn’t lighting the world on fire last year, but looking at this roster makes me think he was playing better than I gave him credit for. But they lost their NT, and it just so happens a pretty good prospect is available.

Enter the Packers pick:

Louisiana Tech DL Vernon Butler

He is an ideal fit for a desperate need, and has the experience to move up and down the line. With any luck he’ll take over for Raji, and be stripping / recovering fumbles, rumbling down the turf to jump the green monster into the arms of loving fans. Man I love that Green Bay leap, what a cool tradition!
