With the 21st pick in the 2014 AA NFL Mock Draft, the Green Bay Packers select…

21. Green Bay Packers
Trent Murphy
DE, Stanford

It’s been understood by many that the Packers would want to find a replacement for Jermichael Finley in the first, but sources have said recently that they desperately want to improve their defense’s playmaking ability. Clay Matthews and Nick Perry provide a decent pass rush but are often injured and the 6-5, 252 lb Trent Murphy led the NCAA in sacks this season with 15. Green Bay will keep Finley or find a serviceable tight end later on in the draft.
