My Top 25 Day Two Targets for the Green Bay Packers: 2014 NFL Draft All Green Bay Packers All the Time
Austin Seferian-Jenkins
Austin Seferian-Jenkins

Austin Seferian-Jenkins – Mackey Award Winner. The Red Zone BEAST the Packers need, plus 89% blocking grade in 2013, best of all TEs.

Donte Moncrief – Consistent downfield threat the Packers receiving group lacks. Elevates (39.5″ vertical, 11′ broad jump). Not polished jet, but tremendous upside.

Cody Latimer – Big, strong, fast, fearless. Caught 72 passes in 2013 playing with a bone fracture in his foot.

Jordan Matthews – Cousin to Jerry Rice, played with 14 diff QBs in college. Still set SEC records for receptions and yardage.

Louis Nix – Dropping like Jerel Worthy did. Value pick. Weight issues and questions about motivation. (BJ Raji II?)

Ego Furgeson – Packers showed pre-draft interest in him as well. Somewhat under-appreciated, but close to 1st round talent.

Daquan Jones –  Draws and handles double teams. Plays in the backfield a lot (13TFL). Raji Replacement.

Kelcy Quarles – Uses his long wingspan and powerful hands to keep OLs off him  and crashes through gaps. Up and comer.

Jeremiah Attachou – Plays hard 100% of the time. Team leader on/off field.

Scott Crichton – Packers supposedly very interested. Needs to play with his hands down. 4-3 here we come!

Trent Murphy – Solo or assisted on 32.5 sacks , 52 TFL over 41 games. Called the “quiet assassin.”

Chris Borland – None-stop weapon of destruction. Has proven his lack of size will not stop him.

Xavier Su’A-Filo – Powerful and quick,adept at both drive blocking and pulling.

Dakota Dozier – OT to OG convert. Very athletic, versatile and well-suited for a ZBS system.

Joel Bitonio – Opened many eyes at the combine. Quick on his feet, can play tackle, guard or center.

Weston Richburg – Has played every OL position. Has worked hard to build himself up, powerful on contact, labors to get to second level.

Marcus Martin – Moved to center last year, smart, active player. Could develop into a real good one.

Keith McGill – 3 years at safety, last year at cornerback, NFL-ready now

Phillip Gaines – Quick and physical, good leaper and an a good blitzer.

Brock Vereen – Has played corner and both safety spots, blew up the Combine. Special teams demon.

Troy Niklas –  Only two years as a TE (converted from LB). very good athlete, poor route runner, needs time.

C.J. Fiedorowicz – Most well-rounded TE in the draft, in my eyes. Underutilized in the Iowa offense, best yet to come.


Stephon Tuitt – Dropping for a reason. Has all the measurables to be really good but lacks mean streak or intensity in his play.

Ra’Shede Hageman – Boom or bust if there ever was one. Will he use his talent and full effort on every play?

Marquise Lee – Better after the catch than going for the catch. Tons of natural ability, but not really an “effort” guy.

BONUS: I heard today that the Packers have requested full profile reports from NFL scouting organization on Trent Murphy, Chris Borland, Keith McGill and Jordan Matthews. Stay tuned…

  1. I’m hoping for a receiver, tight end and outside linebacker tonight.

    I hope the Packers avoid offensive lineman until day 3, and I really think Borland would be a bad fit for the Packers.

  2. The Packers should get 3 good players today if they don’t trade. I’m excited

  3. Best Player Available is really: “Best Player Available at Position Most Needed”. If a QB is the best player available for our second pick, TT is going to draft him? I don’t think anyone here believes that.

    So, maybe another Safety, Linebacker, WR and/or TE will be today’s picks.

  4. He will probably be gone by the time we pick. However,I know Hageman is a gamble,but sometimes players like him rise to the occasion when finally getting paid and on a very good team.He could be great.

  5. Bitonio is versatile. He could make GB feel more comfortable at OG, C, maybe OT, meaning that GB would not need to take Martin in the 2nd and Dozier in the 3rd as suggested elsewhere. Only interested if he’s there at #53. Pretty good article. Agree with the bulk of your lists. Didn’t 1 of your colleagues list ASJ on the FUBARD list?

  6. A very tough decision would be TE Jenkins or DE/lb Crichton or Murphy. Need defense Murphy the choice especially since we have Ferdowicz still available.

    1. WR – That is football for Wide Receiver – you better stick to soccer buddy.
