This year, we have a pair of first-round picks, sitting at 12 and 30 overall. Today, we reveal our first pick for the Packers in this year’s draft.In this scenario, a few of APC’s favorite targets for the Packers have already come off the board. Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver was gone early, landing with the Buccaneers at the 5th pick. Florida State pass-rusher Brian Burns ended up in Detroit with the eighth pick while T.J. Hockenson, the Iowa tight end, went one pick later to Buffalo at nine.A quarterback, Drew Lock, went off the board at 10, however, followed by Michigan linebacker Devin Bush at 11. So, with the 12th overall pick in the 2019 SB Nation Writers’ Mock Draft, Acme Packing Company has selected:Montez Sweat, outside linebacker, Mississippi StateThe Packers would be ecstatic to find one of the pass rushers in the draft’s top tiers available with the 12th pick in this scenario and, given the other players who have come off the board, they should sprint to the podium faster than Montez Sweat’s 4.41-second 40-yard dash. Yes, the team bolstered its pass rush in free agency with the additions of Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith, drastically lessening the need to land one of the top edge rushers in the draft. In fact, these signings plus the adds of Adrian Amos and Billy Turner free up the Packers to truly stick to their best value available strategy. Interestingly, Sweat is taking his official visit to Green Bay today.However, on this board, Sweat is absolutely that guy — plus, you can never have too many pass-rushers. Adding a tremendous athlete like Sweat to this rotation will allow all of these players to stay a bit more fresh as a long season wears on, while hopefully sacrificing little if anything in terms of talent when one of the Smiths needs a breather. He has experience rushing both standing up and with a hand in the dirt, and he may well be asked to do both in Green Bay. Plus, Za’Darius Smith is already expected to rush from the interior on passing downs, so that provides a great pathway to getting all three acquisitions on the field at once. Sweat’s ridiculous athletic ability and production just make him too good to pass up here.Green Bay still has needs on offense and at safety, but the board — and the fact that the Packers have an extra first-round pick at 30 — set up to to fill those holes later on. When you can draft a true impact player who can make life difficult for opposing quarterbacks, you do it.APC broke down the pick on a mini-episode of The APC Podcast this week, where you can hear Tex Western discussing the board and the selection with Zach Rapport:Click here to follow along with the SB Nation Mock as it continues on, and check back in next week to see what happens with pick number 30. Draft evaluation season is well underway for the Green Bay Packers. With three picks in the top 45 selections of the 2019 NFL Draft, look for general manager Brian Gutekunst and his staff to do their homework on much of the top talent in this year’s draft Tramon Williams Color Rush Jersey , particularly on the defensive front seven and the offensive line.However, the Packers have made numerous excellent picks in the later rounds of the draft with Gutekunst and his mentor Ted Thompson in charge. Their diligent scouting of players at all levels of evaluation suggest that they have been paying close attention to this week’s college all-star games — the East-West Shrine Game and NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.Those two games will kick off on Saturday, with the Shrine Game beginning at 2:00 PM Eastern and the Collegiate Bowl starting three hours later. Of the two, the Shrine Game typically draws the better talent, however, coming in second to next week’s Senior Bowl as the top such game each year.Here’s a look at some players who should intrigue Gutekunst and Packers fans alike, and who could be good fits in Green Bay. Most players at this game are likely third-day draft picks or priority free agents, but a few in particular stand out as possible top-100 picks. In addition, click here for full rosters and weigh-in/measurement information.East TeamMichael Jackson, Sr., CB, Miami (FL)As a junior, Jackson was a turnover machine, recording four interceptions. He failed to pick off a pass as a senior, but still helped make the Miami defense an upper-tier unit that allowed just 136 passing yards per game. He has good size at 6-foot-1 and 207 pounds, and he should run well at the Scouting Combine. He could end up a day-two draft pick.Lukas Denis, S, Boston CollegeLike Jackson, Denis had a remarkable junior year, outdoing even his teammate on the East squad. After moving from corner to safety in the 2017 offseason, Denis recorded a staggering seven interceptions that year, adding ten pass breakups and a pair of forced fumbles. He had just one pick in 2018, but he took that back 59 yards for a touchdown. He’s not bulky at 5-foot-11 and 184 pounds, but he could be a candidate to play a hybrid free safety/slot corner role in the NFL.Jordan Brailford, EDGE, Oklahoma StateThe 6-foot-3, 241-pound Brailford enjoyed a breakout season in 2018, recording 17 tackles for loss and ten sacks. A redshirt junior who declared a year early, Brailford currently projects as a mid-round pick and has decent size as a 3-4 edge rusher.Jesper Horsted, WR, PrincetonThe Packers seemed to prioritize big-body receivers in the 2018 NFL Draft, and Horsted is the one receiver on the East team that seems to fit that bill, measuring in at 6-foot-3 and 224 pounds. He ate up Ivy League competition in two years as a starter, catching a combined 164 passes for 2,273 yards and 27 touchdowns. If he can hold up against better competition , that should go a long way towards making him a draftable prospect, or at least a priority free agent.Olisaemeka Udoh, OL, ElonAnother small-school prospect, Udoh is listed at tackle but could transition to guard in the NFL. He has ideal size for the Packers’ preferences at guard (6-foot-6, 328 pounds), and like Horsted, showing an ability to block players from power-five conferences could make him a day-three pick.West TeamDerick Roberson, EDGE, Sam Houston State15 sacks. That’s what Roberson put up as a senior in 2018, adding five forced fumbles and totaling 20.5 TFLs on the season. He’s another player with ideal 3-4 linebacker size, measuring in at 6-foot-3 and 249 pounds this week.Adarius Pickett, S, UCLAStarting for two full seasons and part of a third, Pickett recorded seven interceptions in his career as a Bruin. He also led UCLA in tackles as a senior, with a whopping 123 on the season — though oddly, not a single one for a loss after four TFLs the year before. He has decent size at 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, and should get drafted at some point in April.Daniel Wise, DT, KansasThe younger brother of Patriots EDGE Deatrich Wise, Daniel is a bigger body than his brother at 6-foot-2, 283 but had impressive pass rush numbers for a defensive tackle. He had at least three sacks in each of his four seasons, with five in each of the last two years. He also posted double-digit TFLs as a junior and senior, and added a pair of forced fumbles in 2017. With a little added bulk, he could be a candidate to rotate in as an interior rusher or as a 3-technique when the Packers line up in their base defense.Ron’Quavion Tarver, WR, Utah StateWouldn’t this name fit in nicely with Equanimeous St. Brown and Marquez Valdes-Scantling? His size (6-foot-3, 216) would too, and he had a productive three-year career for the Aggies, recording at least 48 catches and 560 yards every year. Jackson Barton, OT, UtahA two-year starter at left tackle, Barton earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors as a senior and is an imposing presence at 6-foot-7, 303. He could be a mid-round pick as a swing tackle.
