    They've done a great job addressing needs in this draft. Need a tackle? How bout we take two? Lol. I like taking multiple tackles, in case one of them isn't so great, and this kid sounds like he could be very good.

    This guy can become Clifton substitute after he retires.

    Great pick. I am very happy they were able to draft both Lang and Meredith. He could of been a late second round pick, but dropping to the 5th round? I think this can be a steal in a few seasons.

    This was a guy that I saw discussed as a possibility for every team that could have been looking for an OT in the second round of this draft. That could mean the Packers got a steal, but it could also mean that the NFL teams knew something that we and the draft pundits didn't.

    I keep hearing Meredith was not liked by his game coaches, however it didnt keep them from playing him at G for most of the season. I like an offensive lineman with an attitude and he has the physical tools and smarts to be something. Hope Pack got a steal in round 5

    I thought this was a great pick and an unreal sleeper, he could turn out to be one of our better players

    pff...South Carolina how did he do against Iowa.

    Just kidding, seems to be a good pick a possible sleeper. He's got some strength, decent size, and he's Smart and not an idiot like some football players can be.
