Mandatory Monday: Worst Mock Draft

Somehow the "ever" got dropped from the tagline, or else editorial did not thing it deserved it. By striving to create the worst possible mock draft, I get to discuss some free agent moves while shining a light on teams' strengths instead of weaknesses.

The Packers would draft Derek Carr, not Mettenberger, in this draft because if he has to play would be putting Carr behind a line that allows a bunch of sacks (and just lost its starting center to free agency) and let Carr repeat the pro experience of his older brother only with a better team.

I get what you're saying, but Carr is quite mobile and Mettenberger is a statue.

So was David. Mobility does not equal pocket presence.

The only problem with your 'worst possible pick' for Seattle is that a fair few of their recent picks have
more or less been put on 'worst possible' lists (like some
undersized QB named Williams, or Winston or some such).
To steal from your Combine Article, Schneider will laugh manically and then kick your arse.

Hilarious. I'm thinking the Jets and Pats picks would work for a Breaking Madden where Rex and Bill sign an agreement for the Pats to run every down and the Jets to pass every down (Geno running past the line of scrimmage results in a penalty). Instead of Geno Smith in Football Hell, it would be Football Hell.

Regarding the Packers pick, I feel like unless your starting QB is Chad Pennington, backup QB is never, ever a "pressing" need. Considering that they just resigned Starks, and also have Lacy, Franklin, and Harris, I would've gone with a running back.

Also trying to wrap my head around the idea that the Packers' deepest position (other than maybe CB) is halfback. I remember when they were starting Brandon Jackson.
