So, you’re Green Bay, you’ve been having a draft that can best be described as schizoid. You have two picks left. You really can’t salvage a great draft, but there is still decent value at the ol’ need position watering hole.
So by that logic, DeShawn Wynn is clearly the answer. He is a personification of that old chestnut about the million dollar talent and the ten cent mind. Because, when he sees the field, he runs with great vision and he can cut back with the best runners in the game. However, Wynn runs upright. Wynn does have dancers feet. And he is rather injury prone.
Also, while he is not a problem the likes of which threaten strip clubs and the greater Cincinnatti highways. Trouble is something Wynn’s looked for over the past couple of seasons in Florida.
I’m not going to resort to name calling, but there are those Packer fans old enough to remember a First Round SEC Running Back that was the same sort of talent. At least here, Noah Herron won’t have to be so worried about losing his job.
Clark Harris is not as good as Ben Patrick. He’s got good hands, and he could develop into a reliable target on those 3rd and 7 sort of situations. But he is slow and he will not be a great in-line blocker, and merely decent in space. He isn’t bad for 243. People seem to like him.
But I have this conjecture I’d like to share with you.
There are many, including me, who believe Korey Hall to be a reach. There are many, including me, who believe Korey Hall was likely to become an Undrafted Free Agent. Ben Patrick was highly regarded as a top-five tight end with great momentum going into the draft. And all of the sudden, he’s been passed up 5 times by every team in the draft.
If Ted Thompson told me, in a meeting witnessed by a notary public, with his right hand on a stack of bibles, that he sincerely had a guy he was planning to switch positions better rated than Ben Patrick, I just would not believe him.
And maybe that’s why I wouldn’t be a good general manager. Common sense would trip me up.
