But an off-ball linebacker at 12 when there are several top pass-rushers still available? That seems unlikely."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCSTShareTweetShareSharePackers 2019 Mock Draft: ESPNís Todd McShay projects an off-ball linebacker at 12Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsThe conclusion of the NFL season means that itís time once again for mock drafts to begin in earnest for the 2019 NFL Draft. On Thursday morning
, ESPNís Todd McShay published his latest mock for Aprilís upcoming draft, which featured the Green Bay Packers selecting a pair of linebackers in round one.However, despite the Packersí needs on the edge, the first pick is an off-ball linebacker instead. First up, with the Packers on the clock at 12 overall, McShay projects them to select LSU linebacker Devin White:The only part that I really agree with in this rationale is the first half of the first sentence: the Packers want an edge rusher. With three excellent ones still on the board ó Clelin Ferrell, Jachai Polite
, and Montez Sweat ó I canít see the Packers going for an off-ball linebacker instead, even if White is a great prospect.To illustrate this point, letís look at where the Packers have drafted off-ball linebackers since Ted Thompsonís arrival as GM in 2005:2018: Oren Burks (3rd round)2016: Blake Martinez (4th round)2015: Jake Ryan (4th round)2013: Sam Barrington (7th round)2012: Terrell Manning (5th round)2011: D.J. Smith (6th round)2007: Desmond Bishop (6th round)2006: A.J. Hawk (1st round), Abdul Hodge (3rd round)2005: Brady Poppinga (4th round)The Packers have a type and a value on their off-ball linebackers, and itís simply not a position they have prioritized highly in the past. Besides, given the fact that Martinez has one starting job locked down and the investment made in Burks (the teamís highest-drafted off-ball linebacker since Hawk), the need is far
, far less pressing than that on the edge. The better bet here is that the Packers double up on outside linebackers rather than taking an off-ball linebacker this high.Is White a good player? Yes, and heís likely to be a good pro. But so are those edge rushers, all of whom would likely make a much bigger impact in Green Bay given the need and the defensive system the team runs under Mike Pettine.As for the 30th pick, McShay does have the Packers picking a player on the edge: Old Dominionís Oshane Ximines. Hereís McShayís reasoning:Interestingly, Ximines appears to be built similarly to Matthews coming out of college. He measured in just over 6-foot-3 and weighed 241 pounds at the Senior Bowl, numbers that put him right on par with Matthewsí size at the Combine. However, Ximines is unlikely to test on par with Matthews
, who had an excellent Combine workout. Perhaps if the draft board fell the way it did in McShayís mock, the Packers would be inclined to trade up with the Seahawks at 21 and land Jachai Polite instead. Then again, Ximines might be worthy of a first-round grade just based on his Taco Bell menu preferences: The two possible late draft picks were in Green Bay recently."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareSharePackers host pre-draft visits for RB Damarea Crockett and LB Ulysees GilbertQuinn Harris-USA TODAY SportsThe Green Bay Packers need to conclude their top-30 visits for 2019 NFL Draft prospects this week, and they have reportedly brought in another pair of possible late-round draft picks or undrafted players for meetings or workouts, taking the reported number of visitors up to 21.The first new name on the list is linebacker Ulysees Gilbert III from the University of Akron. Gilbert was a three-year starter for the Zips, and he was a tackling machine as a sophomore and junior, when he won first-team All-MAC honors. He posted 121 total tackles (11.5 for losses)
, four sacks, and three forced fumbles in 2016, then put up 140 stops (9.5 for losses), four sacks, and three interceptions in 2017. Gilbert is a smaller linebacker with excellent speed. According to, he mesured in at 6-foot and 224 pounds, but ran a 4.51-second 40-yard dash and a 7.03-second 3-cone drill at Akronís Pro Day. He also posted great explosion numbers with a 39.5-inch vertical and 10-foot-6 broad jump
, leading to an RAS value of over 8. The second player is running back Damarea Crockett from Missouri. Crockett is an early entrant into the draft, whose finest season came in 2016 as a freshman. That year, he ran for over 1,000 yards and ten touchdowns while averaging 6.9 yards per carry. He missed half of his sophomore season due to injury before bouncing back in 2018 with 700 yards and seven rushing scores. The 5-foot-10, 225-pound Crockett ran a 4.50 forty at Missouriís Pro Day while posting a 37-inch vertical.Zach Kruse of Packers Wire was first to report both visits.
