The Packers first round pick was spent on filling their defensive hole left by B.J Raji; now with the Packers defensive issue being addressed, the Packers may look to the offensive side of the ball in the second round. With a prime prospect in Arkansas’s Hunter Henry still being on the board this gives the Packers a definite option.
The signing of Free Agent, Jared Cook may turn the Packers off to picking Henry in the second round. However, Cook is simply an experiment, a TE that was signed to a 1-year contract in order for the Packers to mark his productivity. Picking Henry in the second round would provide the Packers a fall-back option, if the experiment in Cook fails. Henry has has many Pro like qualities as well, and has drawn comparisons to All-Star TE Rob Gronkowski.
Picking Henry would be a very logical pick in the second round, however the Packers front office is notorious for making odd picks when a much more logical pick is presented. Although some of the Packers’ needs are yet to be filled, Henry would be a sound addition to a stagnant offense last year. Henry received many honors in this collegiate years, and is considered by most NFL analysts to be “NFL ready.”
