When I did my first two mock drafts, almost all other sites and scouting profiles had Perry gone by the time the Packers would pick.
Since then, a combination of other prospects' stock rising and Perry's mysteriously falling ever-so-slightly has him landing to the Packers in this mock.
Perry would need a transition period going from a defensive end at USC to playing outside linebacker for the Packers. Then again, Perry could be used with his hand on the ground in passing situations, since the Packers are rarely in a base 3-4 formation anyway.
The Packers would be the perfect hybrid defense for Perry's development and Perry would reward the Packers with an improved pass rush from day one in training camp.
Trade up: Fletcher Cox, DT (6'4", 295lbs)
Cox is the versatile, high-motor, productive and athletic defensive lineman that all teams seek (with the ideal frame to boot). Thompson is going to see major question marks in some of the other highly-touted defensive linemen that don't exist with Cox. Cox will bring it every down and mark a great improvement at 3-4 base end for the Packers.
Trade down: Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina; Jerel Worthy, DT, Michigan State; Kendall Reyes, DT, UConn; Alameda Ta'amu, DT, Washington; Ronnell Lewis, LB, Oklahoma or Kevin Zeitler, C/G, Wisconsin.
I know a mock is supposed to predict the one singular guy who would go at a particular spot, but my point in listing so many great talents here is to express high-value, top-talent second and third rounds of this year's draft.
For this reason alone, I wouldn't be surprised at all if Thompson trades out of the first round, even with all his compensation picks coming later.
More picks means Thompson can stockpile his favorites.
With his record of finding a plethora of talent after the first round, trading down may be a good strategy. I could picture Thompson trading down in the first, but then trading up in the mid-rounds (i.e. move up his fourth-sixth round standard picks knowing he's got his comp picks that can't be traded). This list barely even gets the ball rolling on ultra-talented second and third-rounders available via trading down.
