Thirsty For A Draft?
It's almost NFL Draft Time, and with the 2 compensation picks added to the Packers original 7 picks, it will give GM Ted Thompson a total of 9 picks to satisfy his annual craving to use the NFL Draft to accumulate the players needed to strengthen the Packers prospects for the upcoming 2014 NFL football season.

As you know, in the NFL, if you don't get better as a team every year you end up falling behind. That idea is never going to go away.

I think we all know that Green Bay needs and Inside Linebacker, a Free Safety, and I would add a top-level Wide Receiver. Most of the below mock drafts that I have gathered for your general amusement, I mean "come on", looking back at some of the other previous mock drafts almost no one gets any of players right.
  2014 Packers Draft Order:
  R1 21st
  R2 53rd
  R3 85th
  R3 98th*
  R4 121st
  R5 161st
  R5 176th*
  R6 197th
  R7 236th

* Compensation Picks for WR Greg Jennings and LB Erik Walden.

Who really cares about that, it's no big deal to be wrong, besides, it's fun to speculate about what the Packers and Ted Thompson are going to do with their draft selections, it keeps the alcohol flowing in Wisconsin and all points beyond.

21.  C.J. Mosley, ILB, Alabama - The Packers could address the defensive end, linebacker or safety position at No. 21. Of those positions, C.J. Mosley is the best player available despite Charlie Campbell's report in the draft rumor mill that says Mosley is expected to go much later than most think. Green Bay just needs more speed in the middle of its defense to combat the scrambling quarterbacks it hasn't been able to stop.

53.  Trent Murphy, DE/OLB, Stanford - The Packers need pass-rushing depth in the event that Clay Matthews gets hurt again. Julius Peppers was signed, but it's looking like that was essentially just a 1-year deal. As Charlie Campbell reported, the Packers are very interested in Trent Murphy.

85.  Tre Boston, S, North Carolina - Is there any doubt that the Packers need to improve their secondary? Their defensive backfield blew so many coverages throughout the season, and they had no chance against Colin Kaepernick.

98.  Will Clarke, DE/DT, West Virginia - As mentioned earlier, the Packers are trying to get much faster on defense. They also need help up front, as B.J. Raji signed back on for just one more year.

121.  Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson - Mike McCarthy told the media that he wants to draft a quarterback early. Can you blame him after what happened this past season?

161.  Ryan Grant, WR, Tulane - The Packers lost James Jones to the Raiders, so they may want to add another receiver.

__________________________________________

21.  Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State - For the second consecutive season the Packers were knocked out of the playoffs by Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers and therefore improvements in handling dual-threat quarterbacks will likely be a priority. Adding a pass rusher like Julius Peppers should help, but reinforcements in the back end is also necessary. Shazier may lack the length and pass rush skills traditionally associated with the 3-4 scheme but he is an aggressive, explosive defender well-suited to shadowing athletic quarterbacks.

53.  DaQuan Jones, DT, Penn State - Ted Thompson reloads the defensive line like few others and Jones' size and power makes him a fit at virtually every position in the 3-4.

__________________________________________

21.  FS Jimmie Ward, Northern Illinois - The Green Bay Packers defense is hoping for a jolt of energy with Julius Peppers on the roster now, but unless the big defensive end has learned to play free safety this offseason, the Packers' top need is still unfilled.

Since Nick Collins' injury, the team has lacked a playmaking center fielder, but it can fix that by adding Jimmie Ward. As the Packers plan a more attacking, versatile defense, Ward is the type of single-high safety they need next to a hitter like Morgan Burnett.

Ward excels in coverage, but he's fluid and aggressive playing the run, too. He might not have the hype of Calvin Pryor or Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, but Ward is an ideal fit in the Packers system.

53.  Marcus Martin, OC/OG, USC

85.  Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt

98.  Arthur Lynch, TE, Georgia

__________________________________________

21.  Jimmie Ward, SS, Northern Illinois - Green Bay has a need at free safety and although it would be somewhat uncharacteristic for Ted Thompson to go safety in the first round, Ward gives the Packers an instant upgrade in the secondary.

53.  Jarvis Landry, WR, LSU - The Packers' wide receiver unit isn't as strong as a few years ago -- minus Greg Jennings (2013) and James Jones ('14) -- but Landry could be the next Jennings in Green Bay.

Dane Brugler - NFLDraftScout.com Analyst
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/mock-draft/expert/dane-brugler
__________________________________________

21.  Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota - Dom Capers’ defensive line, formerly a strength of the team, now has considerable issues. Tackle B.J. Raji is back on a one-year “prove-it” deal, while Ryan Pickett and Johnny Jolly are maybes to return, at best. At 6-6 and 310 pounds, Hageman has the potential to play tackle or end, and he’s a tackles-for-loss machine at his best. Some have compared Hageman to an embryonic J.J. Watt, and while that’s a stretch at this point, he does have All-Pro potential in a purely physical sense.

__________________________________________

21.  Ryan Shazier, OLB, Ohio State - Shazier is a sideline-to-sideline player and would line up on the weak side as well as being the nickel middle linebacker. He is always around the ball with nine forced fumbles, 40 tackles for a loss and 13 sacks.

Pat Kirwan - CBSSports.com National NFL Insider
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/mock-draft/expert/pat-kirwan
__________________________________________

21.  Ryan Shazier, Ohio State, OLB34 - So the Packers now have an "elephant" in the room (Julius Peppers) and a hippo back on the line (re-signed BJ Raji). The Packers coaches have not been quiet about their want for more impact players on defense, especially at the Linebacker and Safety spots. As this draft has developed, they have the option here of going with a guy they love (Ryan Shazier) or a guy at their position of most need (Calvin Pryor). With other safeties they feel they can nab in round two or three, Shazier, who had 144 tackles as a senior, is the selection here. Having a guy like Shazier who could run down their recent nemesis, Colin Kaepernick, would be a huge boost to their Playoff aspirations.

__________________________________________

21.  C.J. Mosley Linebacker Alabama - Mosley is a linebacker that can play anywhere and he doesn’t excel in one particular area. This will suite the Packers just fine as help is needed inside and out.

53.  Jimmie Ward, S, Northern Illinois

DJ Boyer - New NFL Draft
http://newnfldraft.com/djs-2014-nfl-mock-draft-21-32/
__________________________________________

21.  Taylor Lewan, T, Michigan - Though Packer fans are tired of 1st round O lineman, Lewan is a great pick up. Bulaga is unproven, and Bakhtiari is better suited at G. This team can’t afford to have pressure on Rodgers.

53.  Marcus Martin, C, USC - Martin is one of the top talents available. The Packers will need a big C and Martin can compete for that, or play G.

85.  Terrence Brooks, S, Florida St - The 1st pick that Packers fans will like. Brooks is the top talent on the board, and the Pack have seen bad play at the safety position.

98.  Paul Richardson, WR, Colorado

121.  Ego Ferguson, DE, LSU

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/mock-draft/expert/pete-prisco
__________________________________________

21.  Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama - The Packers won't waste a lot of mental energy or time if Clinton-Dix is still on the board when their No. 21 pick arrives. They have the need at free safety and either Clinton-Dix or Louisville's Calvin Pryor would be an example of the draft delivering the necessary upgrade with great value for Green Bay's slot. If the re-born Julius Peppers can supply a little pass rush, and the Packers' last line of defense gets a first-round boost, defensive coordinator Dom Capers' job gets a little bit easier.

21.  CJ Mosley, LB, Alabama - Mosley is a steal at this point and the Pack go for the best player available. His range would be a welcomed addition to the front seven from day one.

Robert Davis - Football's Future
http://www.footballsfuture.com/2014/nflmockdraft.html
__________________________________________

21.  Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville - Green Bay ranked 24th against the pass. SS Morgan Burnett struggled mightily after signing a new five-year, $26.1 million contract. Free safety M.D. Jennings ranked among the league's worst according to Pro Football Focus.

53.  Troy Niklas, TE, Notre Dame - Brandon Bostick currently sits atop the depth chart with Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless due to hit free agency. Niklas replaced Tyler Eifert (Bengals) as the starting TE in 2013 and caught 32 receptions for 498 yards with five touchdowns. He had just five receptions for 75 yards in 2012. Niklas is viewed as a solid blocker with decent athleticism.

__________________________________________

14.  Eric Ebron – TE – North Carolina - **MOCK TRADE - Cowboys ** Cornerback is certainly an area the Green Bay Packers could go, but with uncertainty surrounding the future of tight end Jermichael Finley, they opt for a replacement. Eric Ebron is a big, athletic kid from North Carolina in the mold of a converted basketball player. He can get down the field quickly and has the hands to make tough catches.

NFL Mocks 2014
http://nflmocks.com/2014-nfl-mock-draft/
__________________________________________

21.  Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Alabama - **MOCK TRADE — Dallas Cowboys trade pick #16 to Packers for pick #21, #85, and #161** The Packers trade up ahead of Ozzie Newsome and the Alabama prospect loving Baltimore Ravens to get the best free safety in the draft to fill their biggest need defensively. Clinton Dix can hit, he can cover, and most importantly he can make plays on the ball. Paired with Morgan Burnett, he’d give the Packers a nice young safety duo.

53.  Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State

Sayre Bedinger - NFL Mocks
http://nflmocks.com/2014/04/05/2014-nfl-mock-draft-update-trades-clowney-takes-top-spot/
__________________________________________

21.  CJ Mosley, ILB, Alabama - Mosley might not be the flashy edge rusher or hard hitting safety but he's as close to a can't miss linebacking prospect as there is. His ability to play the run and excel in coverage will help an up and down Packers defense.

53.  Austin Seferian-Jenkin, TE, Washington - ASJ has the physical tools to be an elite two way tight end but the interview process will be crucial as teams try to investigate his character. If that checks out he could give Green Bay a dynamic player for a small price.

85.  Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State - The Packers need a safety and Washington State's Bucannon is highly thought of in draft circles

I would love to see a few Free Agents signed this year, Pick em OLB, ILB, Defensive Lineman, Kick/Punt returner and of course a Safety! We will have over 35 million to spend on Rookies and FA. Yes, we have to sign Jordy and Randall and Shields but there is room for a couple of good FA to get us over the hump. Fill in a couple of key players on Defense tweak the 3-4 to a hybrid/Psycho package and get help for Claymaker and a playmaking Safety. Since we lost Collins and Woodson the Defensive Backfield has never been the same. This team is only a few players away from dominnace again. 5 Straight playoffs with 3 Division Titles. Great but lets get that Lombardi Trophy!

Hey there BK...sooooo glad to see you back.

It's been a while for me also; I'd come to the site now and then, and when I didn't see anything new for awhile, I stopped checking in, assuming something had happened and that you were giving yourself space...

PackerPaul emailed me a few days ago with the good news that you were back online, but I just had the chance to read his email.

You sir have truly been missed! My Packer world is right again! Glad to see posts from some of the 'ol gang: Lemondrop, PackerPaul, and hopefully soon from 66 Chica...

Of course, putting things in their proper perspective, life and friendships are so precious; words can't express my sorrow for you and the McClean family. RIP Beer Scout, gone MUCH too soon.

Ancient Brewer's Tomb Found...
In my world, you would find me in total agreement that the person known as "head of beer production" is just as exalted as any King or Queen of Ancient Egypt and deserving of a highly decorated tomb of their own.  Salute!
    Archaeologists have discovered the tomb of a brewer who served an ancient Egyptian court more than 3,000 years ago in Luxor.

    The man buried in it was "head of beer production", archaeologists say.

    A Japanese team found the tomb during work on another tomb belonging to a top official under Pharaoh Amenhotep III, who died around 1354 BC.

    Luxor is home to a large and famous temple complex built by Amenhotep III and later by Rameses II.

    Experts say the tomb's wall paintings are well preserved and depict daily life as well as religious rituals.

Speak Out Spew Off...
Hi Gang! Been a long time... no promises, but... watching the Packers battle through all their problems this year and then having it finally come down to duh Bears game... too much! LOL Go Pack Go!

With the Packers holding the 4th seed, playing the 49ers for the right to go to Carolina and face the Panthers, well, no stinkin' 8-7-1 record is going to be held against the Packers. The 1st game of year against the Niners, if it had been at Lambeau, the Packers would have won.

This match-up is going to be in frozen-tundra-like conditions, oh probably not as bad as they have been trying to scare us all with, but cold enough, and with the wind blowing, PLAYOFF FOOTBALL!!!

Simple prediction: Packers beat San Francisco 27-24 that will be one of those ugly but satisfied with the win games. LOL Go Pack GO!

    ...Scott moved to Pacific Palisades in 1990 to start working in entertainment for the music trade magazine Album Network. Later he worked for Sony Music in Santa Monica, CA and then as a freelance Graphic Designer.

    He had several design patents and was co-founder of Packerpalace.com with his close friend Norby/BeerKid.

    He published a book titled "Big News Prints" on over 400 historical newspaper articles of Big Foot sightings. Scott also loved biking and hiking the Malibu Hills, camping with fellow Sasquatch researchers in Northern CA, the History Channel, Public Television, and following the Green Bay Packers!

Greetings Packer Fans and Earthlings!
I thought I should take some of the heat off of BeerKid for our sort of sorted start!

I've been fighting stage 4 prostate cancer for two plus years and the sucker is getting active. Round 3 of radiation starts this week. Have been having a lot of pain, so am not able to help BeerKid much in getting our classic Packer Palace episodes in the can.

BUT, I will keep fighting, just like the Pack, and expect more of our "informed graphic commentary" in the near future.


Beerscout

There is no Packer website that is as creative and open to the average Packer Fan as PackerPalace. Scout and Kid thanks for all you guys do every week.

I have known Scout since we were 6. He is the most creative out of the box thinker I have ever met. You folks have gotten a chance to enjoy it for years on PackerPalace. My prayers continue for his healing every day.

DISGUSTING, EMBARASSING, RIDICULOUS...DOES ANYBODY ELSE NOTICE THAT THE PACKERS LOOK LIKE THEY DONT WANT TO BE ON THE FIELD? NO PASSION, NO INTENSITY...ONCE IN A WHILE THEY SHOW A LITTLE FOCUS. RODGERS LOOKS LIKE HE RATHER BE SOMEWHERE ELSE PRETTY FREQUENTLY BUT CAN YOU BLAME HIM WHEN HIS O-LINE DOESNT PROTECT HIM? OF COURSE, HE DOES HOLD ONTO THE BALL SOMETIMES FOR TOO LONG...VERY DISCOURAGING...

_______________________________________

NOW THE PACKERS ARE CLAIMING THAT THE "REFS ARE OUT TO GET THEM."

THERE HAVE BEEN SOME REALLY BAD CALLS AGAINST THEM, BUT TO CLAIM THAT IS AN EMBARASSMENT. FIRST OF ALL, THE BAD CALL IN THE SEAHWAWKS GAME ENABLED THE REFS TO GET BACK TO WORKING. ALSO, RODGERS WAS VERY PUBLIC ABOUT GETTIING THE REAL REFS BACK. THOSE INCIDENTS ALONE WOULD MAKE THE REFS FAVOR THE PACKERS, NOT GO AGAINST THEM. NOW THE PACKERS ARE GONG TO BE KNOWN AS CRYBABYS AND WHINERS. THE PACKERS HAVE ALREADY BEEN THE BUTT OF MANY JOKES, NOW THERE WILL BE MORE. SO THE REFS HAVE MADE FINLEY AND NELSON DROP BALLS, MAKE RODGERS HOLD THE BALL TOO LONG, NOT BLOCK SO THERE ARE MANY SACKS AND NO RUNNING GAME, LEAVE THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD WIDE OPEN SO REGGIE WAYNE MAKES CATCH AFTER CATCH? STOP BLAMING OTHERS AND LOOK AT YOURSELVES, PACKERS. THE PACKERS HAVE PUT YOURSELF IN THESE SITUATIONS. IF THEY HAD PLAYED WITH ANY TYPE OF EFFORT MANY OF THOSE CALLS WOULDNT HAVE MATTERED. IF THEY HAD GOTTEN A FIRST DOWN ON THEIR LAST DRIVE AGAINST THE HAWKS THAT BAD TD CALL WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED. IF THEY HAD PLAYED WITH ANY KIND OF INTENSITY IN THE SECOND HALF THEY WOULDNT HAVE GIVEN UP AN 18-POINT LEAD. THE REFS ENABLED THEM TO LOSE A GAME IN WHICH THEY HAD A 21-3 POINT HALFTIME LEAD?

SUCK IT UP, PACKERS, AND START TAKING SOME RESPONSIBILITY. IF THIS ATTITUDE CONTINUES THE PACKERS ARE HEADED FOR A DISMAL SEASON. I WAS DISGUSTED, NOW I AM EMBARRASSED AND DISGUSTED.
