2011 NFL Mock Draft: Green Bay Packers Select 32nd

Today is the final pick of the ROTB 2011 NFL mock draft. The Green Bay Packers will end it for us, just as they were the ones to end the last NFL season. The Super Bowl champs would like to add some depth to the defensive front and add to the offensive line. Let us see who are the final picks of this mock draft. 

I picked for the writers and our resident Packers fan, Strohman, was the GM for the community.

Strohman:

Muhammad Wilkerson, DE, Temple

Muhammad Wilkerson is a 6-4, 315 lb. DE from Temple. The choice came down to Akeem Ayers and Wilkerson. The final choice was made based on the overall talent level of Wilkerson being higher than Ayers. Both play positions that the Packers could be looking to upgrade in this draft. Wilkerson is ideally suited to play LDE in the Packers 3-4 D.

He has tremendous size, length, strength and athletic ability and just needs some time to develop. In GB, he'll get exactly that. He'll have at least a year to learn the nuances of the Packers schemes while interning under Ryan Pickett. Many of the draft experts think Wilkerson has as much or more upside as any of the 3-4 DE in this draft class. He plays with power versus both the run and pass and will be able to hold up against the double teams he'll face on a regular basis.

In pass rush, Wilkerson will have the opportunity to contribute early in a rotation (along w/ BJ Raji and Mike Neal) as an inside rusher in Capers 2-4-5 nickel package. He has the type of game to give OG problems when pass rushing inside. When looking at film of Wilkerson he made a habit of living in the oppositions backfield. Wlikerson along with Dareus, Watt and Cam Jordan are the 34 DE's in this draft who have the ability to actually be playmakers at a position that usually is manned by space eaters. GB is in a position where it can draft the best player regardless of position, and Wilkerson is just that at #32. THe Super Bowl Champion Green Bay Packers welcome Muhammad Wilkerson to the Packer family!

Me:

Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State

Heyward reminds some of Richard Seymour when he was at Georgia playing football in the SEC. Heyward is a guy who would fit in at defensive end in Green Bay's 3-4 scheme. He has a mix of power and speed to get to the quarterback and cause disruptions in the offensive backfield. He has a non-stop motor. This will go right along with Clay Matthews. He is also explosive off the line of the scrimmage. He is not without faults, as he will sometimes overrun a running play in pursuit. But all in all, this guy is ready to take people's heads off. That is the type of player you want on your team.
