BTSC Mock Draft - Pick #29 by the Green Bay Packers: Martellus Bennet, TE, Texas A&M

We near the conclusion of our inagural Mock Draft with the Green Bay Packers selection at #30. Many thanks to Chicago Steeler for the selection. In addition to Pittsburgh and Cleveland, Green Bay is definitely one team I'll be keeping my eye on this year, for obvious reasons. Next up? Our final selection, the New York Giants, by the great RickVa.


The Green Bay Packers have come to a point not seen in 16 years. They are Favreless. All hail Aaron Rodgers. In all seriousness this was a very complete team this year once Ryan Grant started running the ball with authority. The biggest piece of the puzzle that does not return was their QB, but with Rodgers waiting in the wings, they're not going to spend a 1st round pick on a QB. They may try to grab one in round 3-7 though as a project in the event Rodgers doesn't work out. Grant looked good enough to pin some hopes on him as a starter again this year and with some other youth at the position they'll stand pat at RB unless one of the top prospects drops to them.

Defensively I was hoping one of the top 3-4 corners would fall to me at this spot to add some youth to the position and step in as a nickel right away. But with most of the top corners off the board, the next position cluster of importance would be O-Line which is again a little dry for this spot in the draft. The third position I would look for the Packers to address is Tight End. Bubba Franks had been injured all season and while Donald Lee did a servicable job, the Pack will be looking for another option in this position. Looking through the draft boards it seems the top TE is still available and so Green Bay will take: TE Martellus Bennett from Texas A&M.
