I've seen several mocks lately that have the Packers taking Jenkins at #21. Since I don't know anything about most of these guys I rely on your expertise (or maybe its your ability to bullshhit me) on such things. What say you all to Jenkins at 21. I know it depends a lot on who is still available but try to disregard that for this purpose. Is Jenkins a good pick at 21? It seems that he was slated as a 2nd rounder not long ago by most "experts"

All projections I have seen have him being available in rnd 2 for The Packers if they would want him.

JMHO, but Jenkins at #21 would be a real reach, Ebron may fall to 21, and if he does, that would probably mean there was a run on defensive players with the top 20 picks(not what The Packers want).

Ebron at #21 yes, Jenkins no. Jenkins at #53, a real possibility.

Of course if Ebron is the BPA at #21, then look for Ted to find a trading partner to move down and pick up an extra 2nd rnd pick.

This draft is said to be loaded with exceptional talent throughout, so it is very tough to predict exactly what is going to happen.

I've seen him slotted to the Packers in the 1st round on multiple mock drafts recently, especially those at nfl.com. I don't see it. I'd love him in the second round though.

I like the guy as a TE but I don't really like any TE in the 1st round. I would rather just run with Quarless and Bostick than use an early pick on a TE unless it's a well rounded one in the 3rd ish area who is going to bring more to the table than just decent #3/4 receiver production at best.

Quote:
An injured foot prevented Seferian-Jenkins from participating in any pre-draft event. Nevertheless, he is the most complete tight end in this draft with a skill set that mirrors New England’s Rob Gronkowski. He has the prototype size (6-foot-5, 262 pounds) and athleticism to emerge as a big-time NFL starting tight end. He has the versatility to lineup outside as a receiver or in-line as a traditional tight end. He’s a natural pass catcher and capable of making acrobatic plays on the football. He’s also a good route runner. In conclusion, Seferian-Jenkins will represent one of the best value picks of this draft class. He’s the total package at an ever-evolving position. He exhibits the athleticism and fluidity of today’s breed of tight end, yet his size, toughness, and red zone ability gives him an old-school flavor.

That is my amateur scouting report on him. Keep in mind, had Gronk went in the first round, many would’ve booed the pick because the media had him as a day two player.

Thanks for the replies. what you have all said is pretty much what I had gathered.

I did read that report Dakota and it meshed with several others I have read as well. The thing is with most of these reports they seam rather mechanical that's why I asked you guys. It seems like he needs more development than one would like out of a first rounder, even at 21.

As far as Ebron goes I have rarely seen a mock that has him available but you are right buckeye, I don't know if Ted would draft him if he could trade him away and get more picks. Of course I don't know if there is a single player that is projected to be available that would cause Ted to say "screw the trade we are taking this guy." Maybe if Dix or Pryor falls but I've seen enough negatives on Pryor to think that Ted might even consider trading him away.

We shall know soon. We would have known by now if they hadn't moved the draft back.

I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

No way do I see this guy as BPA at 21 with all the talent in this draft.
This would be a move back to early round 2 MAYBE pick. I think you take him at #53 if he's around and not worry about it if he's gone.

I pulled up four top 100 boards and his BEST ranking was 38 and the lowest was 56th. I know you can take these with a grain of salt but when over and over a players name does not make it into the 1st round it does start to say something.

You never know where Ted has these players at but I would not be thrilled with this pick at all. Would love to see him in the 2nd round though.

Would be a decent shout in the second round but as others have said the first round would be way too early.

I didn't even look at this post it was so annoying to me. Sorry. it wasn't you it these pretend experts that get to me.

They say GB HAS to have a TE because Jer Mike is not there.
They don't care what the other TEs on the team are. Most of these so called experts don't do enough research to find out why the 2nd and 3rd string players are not the first string player.
They look at the TE list and see ASJ name toward the top and think that GB HAS to have him or they are doomed.
They don't care that he is a reach at 21.
They want it so they insist no matter how dumb it would be at the time.
