For such a good team there are a lot of holes. Saturday retired so a new center is needed. To early so x'ed out Barret Jones.

Rodgers was sacked a ton last year so protecting the franchise is paramount so OT Menelik Watson, OG Larry Warford and G/T Justin Pugh are high on my list.

The defense was horrible last year at getting to the QB so added talent on the DL and LB is a strong consideration. Also BJ Raji is in the last year of his contract. DT Johnathan Hankins, DT Jesse Williams, DT Kawann Short are all considerations on the DL while DE Alex Okafor, LB Alec Ogletree, LB Arthur Brown, LB Kevin Minter and LB Khaseem Green are all considerations at LB.

This team is QB driven with Rodgers at the helm and two of his best weapons from previous years are gone in Jenkins and Driver so they will need to be replaced. At this point the only WR's left that are first round worthy IMO are WR DeAndre Hopkins and WR Justin Hunter.

Running back is also a concern so I considered RB Eddie Lacy and RB Gio Bernard. Lacy could really help in the play action for this team.

So it comes down to these guys.
WR DeAndre Hopkins
OT Menelik Watson
DE Alex Okafor
LB Alec Ogletree
RB Eddie Lacy
WR Justin Hunter
LB Arthur Brown
OG Larry Warford
LB Kevin Minter
LB Khaseem Green
RB Gio Bernard
G/T Justin Pugh
C Barrett Jones
OT Menelik Watson
OG Larry Warford
G/T Justin Pugh
DT Johnathan Hankins
DT Jesse Williams
DT Kawann Short

Kevin Minter was just taken so remove him from the list.



With the 26th pick in the 2013 NFL draft the Green Bay Packers select:

WR DeAndre Hopkins




Such a QB driven team has to have targets for Rodgers or his talent will just be wasted.

I just read your post above this one .... and knew this was the way you would go. Good pick .... another that makes me go back to the drawing board.


After NCTexan took Minter and this pick , Im looking at NT with Short & Johnathan Hankins .. WR with Hunter and Arthur Brown at OLB. Even considering Eifert at TE ..... I dont like the value of any of these guy's here.


I need a few minutes .... maybe a nap! (kidding).

The choice is a little plain considering such a long list, LOL.

I like Hopkins, but I feel like he's a bit of a reach in the first.
But you've got to do what you've got to do once you draw up your board, right?

Hey, you don't know how many whiskeys he's has after he got up; he might just do it.

I wonder what would happen with the fans if the Texans call out Te'o's name in draft day, LOL!

Trufant will be a day 1 starter and has a chance to be the best CB in this draft. There's really not much difference between Millner and Trufant. IMHO

Steelb, can you email RNR to get him ready; he needs to make up for it or he gets to buy some beer. (I'll take a case or two, LOL)

Will do

It's time for him to provide some crawfish to go with the beer.

If I were in this situation as a packer GM I would trade down 10 times out of 10.

Actually It was a hard choice. None of he OL seemed worthy of this high a pick. The LB's didn't bring enough pass rushing ability other than Ogletree. I really considered him but couldn't do it because of his off field fiasco this offseason. The DL guys were really hard to pass up. It just come down who could help the most. Rodgers is top 3 QB. You have to surround him with weapons if you want to be successful.

Who would you have taken?

I really dont like how this shook out for the Texans .... Im struggling with the pick as I just dont see any value with any of the positions of need. Getting the 5th best guy at a multitude of positions - DT , WR , OLB/DE or OT just isnt appealing. Rock N Randy's surprise pick of TE looks plausible here with Eifert being the best TE in the draft .... but I just cant seem to pull the trigger.
Under this scenario I think a trade down would be optimal ...

I totally get you; in fact I just went through that list again, and I can see the choice.

I keep seeing it end up his way. We are kind of in a grey area of the draft. I wish we were 5 picks earlier or that we could trade down and get at least one more pick in the top 75.
