And here we go – the first 2008 NFL Mock Draft?

by

Don Banks from Sports Illustrated posted his first Mock Draft today. Let the speculation begin.

We’ll get more into the individual players in the draft as the time gets closer as I am sure we’ll post an official Packergeeks Mock Draft. For now, I have to agree with Banks’ projection that the Packers might take someone like TE Fred Davis, he may not be a bad player to pick up. He’s solid and TE is a position of need. However, if RB Felix Jones and/or LB Keith Rivers are available, I would be excited to get either of these guys – especially Keith Rivers from USC. He is very athletic, seems to have a good football sense and while Poppinga was indeed less of a liability as the season went on, I still think we could use a stronger OLB.

Just thinking quickly here, I would identify corner, D-line, OLB, OG, long snapper, RB, and safety as areas we might consider improving through the draft.
