No risk. No reward.
Ok. Are we done with cliches?
It might be a good year for the Packers to take some odd risk in the NFL draft. Not the kind of risk that pays off instantly but some really l ong-term risk.
Herein are 3 off the wall pick ideas for the 2016 draft.
- QB – Yes, Hundley looks good but he will have sat too long before his shot comes. The best bet is to try and get him some live reps and use it as trade bait. Thus, this year grabbing a QB early might not be a bad call. Grab Connor Cook, have him sit for four years and #12 should be on his way out. Or the Packers GM (probably Wolf) can trade him similar to the way the 9ers dropped Montana. Sure we all cringe at the idea of A.R. wearing another uni but that’s life in big boy sports.
2. WR – This year’s crop of wideouts have been labeled slow. Maybe, maybe not. The long and short of it is this: While the Packers might have one of the best receiver corps in the NFL, it takes one injury to change this dynamic in an instant. Why not stock up. It’s always better to have too much than not enough.
3. DB – Yes, go get another one. It looks like TT hit gold with Randall and Rollins. Come next payday that won’t be able to keep both. Oh and Ha Ha should be laughing all the way to the bank too. So keep the shelf full.
Just food for thought. What do you think?
