ROTB Community Mock Draft, Pick 28: Green Bay Packers Pick Up Linebacker


With the 27th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers select Shea McClellin, DE,/OLB, Boise State

When you have a team as talented as the Packers, especially with a great quarterback like Aaron Rodgers leading your offense, you can focus on drafting the best available player at a need position. For the Packers, I'd safely assume offense is not a top priority, and their defensive backs seem to be quite talented as well, so their selection should be either a defensive linemen or a linebacker. Adding McClellin at the end of the first round is great value, and should provide a pass rushing presence at the other outside linebacker spot, opposite from Clay Matthews. He has a great motor, and great athelticism to boot. Heck, if the Cardinals manage to find a trade partner in the mide to late twenties, I'd be ecstatic if Shea McClellin was the selection.
