The Packers will go on the clock in less than two weeks. In preparation for that GPN wants to put you in the position of General Manager with a live simulation of the draft on Monday's Good Packer Nation Morning. Today's show was cut short for technical reasons so today I am putting together a pre-draft prep sheet for all those who want to participate.

Chad Reuter has the Packers picking TJ Watt in round one of the 2017 draft at pick number 29. This pick would have many in Packer Nation ( myself incuded) turning cartwheels. But is this the best route for the Packers to go? A lot of factors go into a first round pick, even for a team that has been consistent in their claim that they always choose the best player available. Who is available?
