    Yeah Bush will go early round 2 at the latest and is still likely going to get into round 1 after he workouts. He is 250 and he has some speed for a bigger back as well.

    If LaRon Landry or Adrian Peterson are not available, I think we should definately trade down in order to obtain multiple 2nd & 3rd round picks, & we know TT is good at that. Our first picks could look a little like this:

    2nd-Jeff Samardizja_WR Notre Dame
    2nd-Kenny Irons-RB Aub
    3rd-Brian Leonard-FB/RB Rutgers (to assure we get this guy)
    3rd-Tom Zbikowski-S ND (he's a grinder, can have instant impact as Saftey and Special Teams, I really like this guy)
    4th-CB Kenny Scott, GA Tech
    5th-Clark Harris-TE Rutgers

    With exception to Zbikowski, I like most of your picks, C-Mize.

    Samardizja would give us a much needed weapon at receiver. He has a great pair of hands, seems to be able to stretch the field, and has great height, which will help us a lot in the red zone.

    Irons and Leonard both address depth in the backfield, which is a must since Henderson and Green are near the end.

    I don't like Zbikowski much at the next level. I watch a fair bit of Notre Dame games, and he's one of my fav players on that team, but I don't think he covers well enough to be anything but a liability at the next level. He probably falls to the second day and carves out a future as a good special teamer.

    Don't know much about Scott, since I haven't seen much of GT, but depth in the secondary doesn't hurt. Ideally, when Woodson and Harris get older we can have two youngsters step in and play at the high level like when Sheppard and Brown came in and started at corner for Philly a few years ago.

    I'd prefer the team to address TE earlier in the draft, but Harris isn't a bad pick if you can grab him this late. Should be able to help in the red zone, and that's one of the key weak points on this team.

    I just figured out that the highest possible pick we can have is #11, and the lowest possible is either #17 or #18. That isn't that bad, considering how deep this draft class is. I am excited about the draft and about next year's team!

    If we can get Michael Bush in the second it would be a steal, hell I would trade up in the second to get him, he's going to be a monster.

    It is still very early. Ted likes the best player available(BPA) method of picking players.

    Here are some picks I think Ted will be looking at.

    1st Round(16th):
    Marshawn Lynch(5' 10" 223lbs) RB CAL,
    Darrell Revis(5' 11" 190lbs) CB PITT,
    Antoine Cason(6'0" 182lbs) CB AZ,

    Not only are thes the BPA but the Packers have older players at these positions.

    2nd Round(48th):
    Brandon Meriweath(6' 0" 190lbs) FS Miami(FL),
    Johnnie Higgins(6' 2" 180) WR UTEP,
    Steve Smith (6' 0" 190lbs) WR USC

    These are needs and BPA.

    3rd Round(80th):
    Aaron Rouse(6' 3" 220lbs) SS VA Tech,
    Jason Hill(6' 2" 210) WR WA State,
    Joe Newton(6'7" 255lbs) TE OR St,
    Ryan Kalil(6' 4" 285lbs) C USC

    Here it also depends on the players selected previously.

    Also noting the above comments Michael Bush should go early 2nd round about pick #40. I do not think he will be on the board at pick #48.

    He's actually huge. 6'2" 250. He used to play QB and was actually recruited as a QB. Has pretty good breakaway speed but not that elusive as a runner because of his size. Still a good fit for the Pack and in round 2 would be a steal. People were talking top 10 if he stayed healthy.

    He's more elusive than any guy that big I've seen. He would absolutely be a steal in the 2nd round, but I doubt he will last that long after the combine.

    I think he's a good fit for the Jets with their 1st round pick. They need a consistent RB instead of a bunch of average ones.

    I heard he was leaning towards returning to Louisville though and taking a medical redshirt.
