Could The Packers Draft One Of These Two Dominant Iowa Players?
The NFL playoffs are rapidly approaching, and the Green Bay Packers sit perfectly perched on top of the NFC North and have clinched a playoff berth. The question this year is can the team piece everything together at the right time to win another championship? We will see.
But with the success of a good season comes a price to pay. Your choice of the top college draft picks shoots to the bottom. The Packers as of right now are projected the 30th overall pick in the draft and according to CBS NFL insiders are projected to take 6'7" offensive lineman Josh Jones from the University of Houston. However, there is a chance the Pack could get one of two dominant Hawkeye players projected to go in the first round.
Tristan Wirfs, the Hawkey's Right Tackle is projected to go 3rd overall to the Dolphins. Unlikely. The dolphins have a massive hole at Quarterback and will most likely be drafting Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa. This pushes Wirfs back a bit, as well as his teammate, Edge Rusher A.J Epenesa. The Pack could benefit greatly from both positions, as they've lost they're best pass rusher, Clay Matthews, to the Rams this past offseason. Possible? Yes. Likely? So-so. Either way, look for Green Bay to be drafting a player with grit. Check out the latest CBS mock draft here.
