Green Bay should have 9 draft picks going into the draft. 7 of their own, an extra seventh, and a compensation pick. This is TT’s first draft as a Super Bowl winning GM. The compensation pick is a 4th round for Kampman who signed with Jacksonville. Everyone has GB taking a DE or OLB at the end of the first round. I don’t think either of those are priorities. Yes I know Jolly may never play again and Jenkins will probably walk. But GB’s defense was at its best when Woodson and Shields were on the field together and they played only two DL. The guys they can’t compensate so easily for are on the OL and at WR. Either you have them or you don’t. A reduction in talent there could slow the offense considerably. And GB has needs in both areas and I would expect them to address both early. All the statistics shown are from the 2010 season. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the draft. No matter how it turns out, it gave us all something to think about.
1) I am limited to the same media most of you have access to.
2) I don’t get to talk with any player.
3) The ones I like more are in BLUE.
4) And I am trying to find players I think would benefit only the Packers.
WR’s followed by OL and RB needs headline GB’s offensive needs. OT Tauscher probably doesn’t return, OG Colledge may be allowed to walk, and at WR Driver’s and/or Jones may not be back. And at RB, it depends on a few things. Jackson’s return or not, Grant’s recovery, and how the coaches think Starks can learn. It is hard to believe that GB won a Super Bowl with all the uncertainty.
