    Cooter's Mid February Mock!

    First off to all you bedwetters that are going to complain that this should be in the draft section and not on it's own, change your diapers!!!

    Players Re-signed-

    CB Sam Shields- Should be the Packers number one priority in free agency and I believe they will sign him to a long term deal.

    TE Andrew Quarless- We see value in him, will never be great, but given a opportunity, can become a descent starter.

    LB/DE Mike Neal- Neal will continue to get better as he learns the position and gets more in LB shape, but will also become a third down pass rush specialist as well.

    Free agents signed-

    LB Jamari Lattimore-signed to a 2 year deal, with tons of production bonuses, and will become a starter.

    Matt Flynn- has no street value, brought back at league minimum.

    Kahlil Bell- minimum deal, camp fodder, has slight chance to make the team

    Johnny Jolly- brought back on two year, incentive laden deal with performance and drug incentives in it.

    Rob Francois- brought back, even though hurt, he was productive when on field, no bonus, just see what he can do.

    James Starks- uncharacteristically TT doles out some very good cash for a incredible backup.

    Players not resigned-

    Jermichael Finley
    Ryan Pickett
    James Jones
    John Kuhn
    Marshall Newhouse
    Evan Dietrich-Smith
    M.D. Jennings
    Senecca Wallace
    C.J. Wilson
    BJ Raji

    Players Released-

    Brad Jones- teams figured out all you have to do is right at him and its a automatic five yards

    AJ Hawk- financially not going to help us at all, but we just need to get more physical and athletic

    Players contracts extended-

    Tramon Williams- Both sides know he is making too much next season, so his contract is extended for 4 million dollars guaranteed money, but helps us out next season.

    Jordy Nelson- His extension gets done.

    Randall Cobb- His extension gets done as well.

    Free agents signed-

    DE- Michael Johnson is our biggest FA signing since Reggie White, I don't believe we sign 5 FA's like some are saying, but I do think we will stick our toes in and we jump all over this guy. We are going to go faster, tougher and lighter on that side of the ball.

    FS- Louis Delmas, recently cut by Detroit is brought in. Man is only 26 years old. Was healthy all season last year, which is key for him.

    Draft-

    The Packers receive a 3rd round compensatory pick for Greg Jennings and a 6th round pick for Walden.

    Jonathon Franklin traded for 5th rounder from the Giants.

    With the 21st pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers select...
    C.J. Mosley ILB Alabama, one of two reason we get rid of Hawk and Jones. The new era of lighter, faster, more athletic and meaner has begun. He has it all. A few injuries in the past is only reason he falls to them, but he checks out medically.

    With our 2nd round selection we simply go for BPA, Washington's Austin Seferian-Jenkins. He falls mainly because of his checkered collegiate past. The bar for the tight end position in terms of size, speed and skills seems to get higher and higher every year and he clearly fits the mold.

    3rd round-

    Deone Bucannon S Washington State, either you like him or you don't, I think the potential is there, just have to draw it out. Needs to work on his tackling, more so his straight on tackling as he has gotten run over at times, will be a special teams gamer immediately.

    Chris Borland ILB Wisconsin, he simply falls because of his height 5'11". His production is waivered once the combine is over and scouts pick him apart.

    4th round-

    Seantrel Henderson OT - Miami, has never lived up to his billing, top recruit in the nation after hs, but never came close to living up to it. Doubt he ever becomes the LT that many thought he once would become, but for now Packers add more T depth as they continue to shuffle guys around.


    5th round-

    Zack Kerr, NT Delaware a thick mountain at 6'2" - 334 is added. He gives us zero pass rush value, but can add some early down help.

    Keith McGill CB Utah, not a ton of production in college, but at 6'3" I guess you take a later round look.

    6th round-

    J.C. Copeland FB - LSU, the man can flat out block

    Chris Watt OG Notre Dame, not a bad player that may transition to center, but recent injury drops him in the draft

    7th round-

    L'Damian Washington WR Missouri, a great potential prospect because of his height and straight line speed.

    Why did you not resgin EDS? We don't have really another center who I would trust. And I believe EDS won't be that expensive.

    If you were pissed at Morgan Burnett for being pretty meh this year, you don't want Louis Delmas in here. Dude doesn't even try to wrap up tackles. He charges at guys like a missile and misses 75% of the time. Doesn't have good ballhawking skills either. He was pretty worthless for Detroit this year, honestly. Plus we already struggle with injuries, we don't need another Packer wearing a T-Shirt on the sideline.

    I really hope we have a plan at ILB if we're cutting both of our starters too.

    If cutting Hawk isn't going to help us financially why not just keep him? I'd release Tramon over Hawk. I'd rather Have Lacy, Franklin, Harris and not give Starks good backup money. I believe Franklin will continue to grow, and Lacy is just a tough MF, so I don't see him missing many games, but obviously anything can happen. In that case we could roll with Franklin/Harris, even just splitting 6-7 carries each.

    LOVE the signing of Michael Johnson, but how much does he command on the open market? Seems as though he will have A TON of interest.

    The draft seems pretty deep in secondary, I literally like all of the top 5 safties in the draft. Therefore, no thank you to Delmas.

    I'd be content with this offseason though.


    edit - Didn't see your "draft" section. If we drafted Mosley, ASF, Bucannon. I would take the fattest **** in my pants...

    He was getting 1.3 million this season, he'll want over 2 million a season. I personally think we need to upgrade there.

    I'm sure Michael Johnson will command top dollar, but if you noticed I didn't sign a whole ton of our FA's, allowing us to do a move like this. I think his size and height is what this defense needs. I mean letting Kuhn go 2 million, James Jones 6 million, add up to being able to sign one guy like this.

    Dulmas allows us to work with Bucannon. I like Bucannon, but I'm not sure he is NFL ready. Certain aspects of his tackling, etc. need to be worked on, but I think he is a gamer and should only get better.

    Lattimore, Francois, Borland and Mosley take care of that easily.

    The Hawk and Brad Jones cuts weren't financially driven at all. We need to makes changes. And those were 2 of the pieces removed. I think Starks is the perfect backup and Franklin isn't good at blocking, pass protection and fumbled. I traded him because I think Harris and Bell may offer more, so why not get a 5th rounder back? Tramon was a different player the 2nd half of the season.

    I guess I didn't see him that way. I was looking for a FA safety that isn't going to command top dollar but can be a reliable starter for a season or two. But I'm not a Dulmas expert as I hate watching Detroit.

    I like the Mock overall, but i do not like the releasing of Hawk nor the non resigning of EDS and Pickett. Both will be relatively cheap, i believe they should be at least.
    I like the first four picks in the draft and the signing of Michael Johnson, don't like the signing of Delmas. There are better options as stop-gaps on the open market.

    We can't just release hawk and jones. Thats dumb. Who do you replace both of your starting ILB's with? Too much roster turnover is a bad thing, and theres already the potential for a lot of that on defense this year. Some continuity is good. Also, too much is being expected of Hawk. Limit his role and snap count, sure, but cutting him would just be dumb. He's pretty cheap for us this year, anyway. l

    Trading Franklin after just one year is dumb, too. I still think the guy has the potential to do some cool stuff in this offense. So he played in two games and had fumbling issues. Lets give up on him.

    Ah, I think I posted this before you added your mock draft in, or I just completely missed it. I'd rather keep Hawk around instead of letting him go even still. I really like the Mosley pick for sure though.

    If it's on the extreme cheap then I don't think it would be a terrible move since pretty much anyone is an upgrade over MDJ. I live in Detroit so I hear a lot about how bad Delmas is and how happy everyone is that he is gone now, so I wouldn't pay him anything longer than 2 years if we got him at all.

    Lattimore, Francois, Borland and Mosley are our four ILBers. Enough said. I just get surprised by people. Everyone thinks our defense sucks, but they want everyone back like Hawk, Raji, etc., but they are the players not making plays. I want to upgrade that position and saving money isn't my #1 priority there.

    Besides safety what spot could and should use that much attention?

    I thought Starks played wonderful. He led the league if I'm not mistaken at 5.5 yds/carry. So give the guy his due, he deserved it. You act like it's going to take 5 million a year to keep him. While ole Franklin costs us one game because of a fumble and realistically only played in one. I'm not down on the guy. It's just that I think we are a better team with Starks back, then without him back.
