Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cooooold out there today.
It occurred to me that the Packers draft day is much like Groundhogs Day. I swear we draft this same guy every single year. Apparently the Packers have been so impressed with Datone Jones that they needed his clone. How many defensive lineman are we going to draft early until we find out that we have no clue what we’re doing? What kills me is that even if this was ‘their guy’ they could have traded back into the second round and got him and acquired extra draft picks too.
What the Experts are Saying
From Kenny Clark’s draft profile on NFL.com:
What bothers me about Clark is that he was so much better against weaker competition than he was against better talent. -AFC Pac-12 scout
Now that all well and good against the inferior teams in our division but what about playoff time?
Packers Draft Criteria
- Extra points if they are from the following schools: UCLA, USC, Iowa, Alabama
- Play alot of different positions and be below average at all of them
- Ensure no one has ever heard of them… not even other scouts
Jon Voigt Inspired Pick
I believe that Myles Jack was the pick going into draft day but then like George Costanza on Seinfeld, something changed his mind to Kenny Clark. Below, just replace ‘Volvo’ with Myles Jack, ‘LeBaron’ with Kenny Clark and ‘Consumer’ with draft experts.
JERRY: Hey! Did you get the Volvo?
GEORGE: No, I decided to go with an ’89 LeBaron.
ELAINE: A LeBaron?
JERRY: I thought Consumer said Volvo was the car.
GEORGE: What Consumer? I’m the consumer.
JERRY: Alright. Seems like…a strange choice.
GEORGE: Well, maybe so…but it was good enough for Mr. Jon Voight.
Oh, and he doesn’t have a beard.
