With the 64th and final pick of Pride of Detroit's 2011 NFL Mock Draft, the Green Bay Packers select Troy wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan. Gyorick is serving as the Packers' general manager, and his reasoning for the pick is below.

I believe that Jerrel Jernigan would be a great pickup for the Packers. Donald Driver isn't getting younger and they could use another guy to open the field for Greg Jennings. Jerrel can stretch the field with his speed but is a bigger threat after the catch. He is a great community and character guy so it seems this would be a safe pick for the Packers to make since they don't like the character red flags. With the knowledge of the offense that Aaron Rodgers has, I believe that he can make any wide receiver look good. By getting a guy that is deadly after the catch and has great hands, he will really be able to carve up defenses.
