One of the most common picks for the Lions lands with their rivals in Green Bay in our latest mock draft pick."The Green Bay Packers have had themselves an interesting offseason. They’ve been uncharacteristically active during free agency Cheap Will Harris Jersey , leading many to believe they have a general manager with the right head on his shoulders. However, last week’s bombshell report of dysfunction between Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson has put into question the foundation this team was built on.So it’s SJLionsFan609’s job to help fix this rival of the Detroit Lions. In our Pride of Detroit Community Mock, SJLionsFan609 is the acting general manager for the Packers. And with the 12th overall pick in the community mock, the Packers have selected Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson. Here’s the explanation, courtesy of SJLionsFan609.After spending big bucks on improving the defense in free agency, the Packers will be looking to the draft to shore up the holes in the offense.“I’ll be honest, I didn’t have the slightest idea what the Packers biggest needs were, but after doing some research it seemed tight end was at the top of the list with edge rusher Will Harris Jersey Womens , offensive line and safety also being big needs. I had Florida State EDGE Brian Burns written on the card and was halfway to the stage before changing my mind and going with Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson.What led me to choosing Hockenson over fellow Iowa tight end Noah Fant was Hockenson’s run blocking ability. Both Hawkeyes are superb in the passing game but as Joe Marino of thedraftnetwork.com stated, “One of the most tenacious blockers I’ve ever laid eyes on. The foot urgency and finishing skills are tremendous, will bury DE’s and OLB’s alike. Effective to collapse or wash down and ensure there’s a soft edge for ball carriers.”With new head coach Matt LaFleur bringing in his new offense, I fully expect the Packers to try to run the ball a lot more than previous years. That is, of course, if Aaron Rodgers allows that to happen. Having Hockenson working the middle of the field will also help open up things on the outside for Davante Adams as well. 2013 was the last year the Packers had a top-10 rushing offense, and with the addition of Hockenson to LaFleur’s offense, and a full season of Aaron Jones, I expect that to change this year.”Catch up on all of the picks with our Community Mock Draft Tracker. The reasons for the Detroit Lions’ offensive collapse have already been thoroughly debated. Some blame the poor play-calling and uninspiring schemes—hence the firing of offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter. Others look at the skill position players and see a completely depleted unit by the season’s end: No Golden Tate Matthew Stafford Jersey , no Marvin Jones Jr., no Kerryon Johnson, and no tight end worthy of attention in the receiving game.Another contributing factor that most agreed upon was Detroit’s disappointing offensive line. With another addition to the front in first-round pick Frank Ragnow and the hiring of offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, many believed this was the year they would take a big step. And while the run blocking undoubtedly improved noticeably, pass blocking had its issues. Matthew Stafford was sacked 40 times, just seven fewer than last season and still 10th-most in the league. But according to Pro Football Focus’ end-of-season unit grades, the Lions’ play in the trenches may be better than perceived. Take a look:It’s probably downright shocking for many of you to see that the Lions ranked eighth in pass blocking grade as a team. Trying to justify that grade with the Vikings’ 10-sack game still fresh in the mind probably makes you want to simply discount PFF completely. But let’s not completely throw out the results right away. Remember a month into the season? Remember when we ran with this headline: “Only 1 team has allowed fewer QB hits than the Lions”? While the Lions didn’t finish the season anywhere near second in the league in that category, they did finish a respectable 13th in QB hits allowed. The Lions were obviously hurt by the mid-season loss of right guard T.J. Lang, but that still doesn’t really justify the Lions ranking top 10 in pass blocking Darius Slay Jersey , especially when you look at the top graded players on the Lions offense in 2018:Only one offensive linemen and a bunch of skill position players. How does that make any sense when all the Lions were ranked poorly in all the skill position traits (receiving: 21st, rushing: 23rd)? Well, pass blocking and run blocking isn’t just up to the offensive linemen. As we noted last week, the Lions also had the best pass blocking tight end in the NFL with Levine Toilolo. They also had one of the best pass blocking running backs in Theo Riddick. But even still, there’s probably more credit that belongs to the offensive line than we’ve been giving. Taylor Decker had a bounceback season. Ragnow’s inconsistent rookie year eventually had more ups than downs. Graham Glasgow has quietly been solid and, perhaps more importantly, extremely dependable. And even Kenny Wiggins showed signs of improvement by the season’s end. Considering how bad things were last season—last in yards per carry, 25th in sacks allowed—it’s undeniable the Lions improved in both areas in 2018. Perhaps that’s why the Lions have showed faith in Jeff Davidson this offseason by reportedly allowing him to sit in on interviews for the offensive coordinator job.
