  1. overall solid draft.

    I liked Sherrod the best of all the first round tackles. I wanted Reed at that spot, but after the pick was made I thought about it more and Sherrod was the better pick.

    Cobb will make an impact this year and that is not easy to do on this team for a rookie. I love that he is a high character guy at WR.

    Green – I wish we would have went D-line or secondary here, but he should be an upgrade over B-Jack.

    D.J. Williams – Love the pick. I wanted him bad before the draft for his flexibility. Bye Hall, Bye Johnson. We no longer need you. I think he is a better/more technical blocker than he is given credit for and appears to really understand the passing game. Loved the pick.

    House – time will tell. Good value i thought. My top rated corner left.

    Lawrence Guy – decent value but might be a head case. Have heard him called a “space cadet” by a scout. Dislexia and ADHD. Took him 3 months to learn ASUs playbook and it takes most players about two weeks.

    1. Dyslexia and ADHD while on the cusp of earning two degrees and a playbook.How easy would it be for you to learn the playbook without the handicaps he has endored.
      Now he needs only to study the playbook and he is still smarter than many a player already playing.

      1. and think how much faster i could run if i was not born with chicken legs and a weak upper body. this is the nfl, no one cares if you have a learning disability. you are going to be expected to learn as fast (or faster since you are a seventh round pick) than everyone else. i still think it was a good value in the seventh for sure, but he has an uphill battle.

  2. Did it seem like the steelers took the players the packers wanted everytime in the mid rounds?

    Curtis Brown – packers trade back

    Cortez Allen – packers trade back and it was noted that we had interest in him

    Chris Carter – i was sick when the steelers took him. I liked him a TON. Packers trade back.

    I would have traded ricky elmore, harris and guy to be able to get Carter. That was the biggest bummer of the draft for me.

  3. FireMMNow should have his own website to write about the Packers….he hit it all on the head. 3 of the 4 last picks will have a hard time making the roster, but it was a great draft. Steelers took a few of our guys….I wanted Chris Carter and Curtis Brown and the Citadel kid as well. FireMMNow….you should seriously thinking about writing for a paper or something….I generally agree with your opinions.

    1. thanks for the compliments sterling84, but I get paid well doing what i am doing now. i am thinking about starting a blog with some friends that i consider pretty knowledgable when it comes to the packers and draft.

      1. FireMMNow, you clearly know your stuff. I feel the same way about the Packer’s picks. It is almost like I was watching the draft with you. Weird. Anyways, if you and your friends go ahead with the blog, let me know. It is something I would want to check out.

  4. I wasn’t too psyched that we passed up on Noam Chomsky in the third round…

      1. good point, I wasn’t too happy about that either. I think with our new coaching staff this year we will be ready to finally return to glory. No more of this Mike McCarthy crap. As long as we bench Rodgers and start Lee Harvey Oswald we are set to go!
