I said my previous mock draft was going to be the last one, but I am addicted to mock drafts. With only two days left before Christmas day, I am going to churn out one more, and this one has a trade involved.
Prospects are screaming up the boards or free falling down, which is why I have involved a few trades. The Packers need a pass-rushing linebacker and a five-technique defensive end equally bad. If the Packers get a linebacker in Round 1, that lessens the load on the defensive end, and vice versa.
There seems to be a good crop of outside linebackers in this year's draft who are capable of getting to the quarterback, some better than others.
The defensive end position is where it gets tricky. There doesn't seem to be any middle ground between top-tier and project players. There is one intriguing defensive end who is tumbling down the boards, which is why I worked in a trade.
Here we go, with only two days left. Enjoy
