Ranking Top 10 Players Green Bay Packers Should Select in First Round 2014 NFL Draft
Ranking Packers’ Top 10 Potential First Round Picks
The 2014 NFL Draft is only a couple of short months away, which means the Green Bay Packers have to get their draft board ready. Green Bay will have a great opportunity to select a talented prospect with the 21st overall pick who can have an immediate impact this year. At this point, it is just a matter of which players will be available when it is their turn to be on the clock.
The Packers already have a good idea of which players can be a difference maker for their ball club. Unfortunately, there is a good chance some of those players will not be available. The biggest area of need for Green Bay is safety and defensive line. Regrettably, that also happens to be what a number of other teams will be targeting in the first round. The Packers could try to move up but that’s not exactly general manager Ted Thompson’s style. Instead, Green Bay will simply have to select the best defensive player within their need at the No. 21 overall selection.
The ensuing slideshow is a ranking of 10 players the Packers should select in the first round. As you can imagine, it is mostly filled with defensive players who could provide help right out of the gate. It is important to note that the 10 players listed are all within Green Bay’s range at No. 21. Obviously, Jadeveon Clowney would look great in green and gold but that is simply not going to happen. Some of the players on the countdown could be long gone before the Packers are on the clock. The truth is there is really no telling what could happen on draft day.
