    2002 draft- players still on the team----WE DRAFTED 6 PLAYERS
    1st round- J. Walker
    4th round- N. Davenport
    5th round- A Kampman
    5th round- C Nall

    - Not bad we traded a lot of our picks..... not TT style of draft

    2003 Draft------------- WE DRAFTED 9 PLAYERS
    1st round- Nick Barnett
    3rd round- Kenny Peterson

    (we did trade phili our 2nd rounder for al harris)

    2004 Draft----------WE DRAFTED 6 PLAYERS
    1st round- Ahmad Carroll
    3rd round- Donnell Washington
    3rd round- BJ Sander
    6th round- Corey Williams
    7th round- Scott Wells


    Compare this to TT's first draft----- WE DRAFTED 11 PLAYERS
    1st round- A Rodgers
    2nd round- N Collins
    2nd round- T Murphy
    4th round- M Underwood
    4th round- B Poppinga
    5th round- J Coston
    5th round- M Hawkins
    6th round- M Montgomery
    6th round- C Bragg
    7th round- K Campbell
    7th round- W Whitticker

    -Hopefully TT will trade down for extra picks this year like he did in the previous draft. We got some solid players in the later rounds that hopefully will continue to develop. Looking at Shermans draft you know why we had a terrible year. We have been on the decline since he took over as GM. Hopefully we will continue to bring in 10+ guys through the draft every year.

    Sherman's "D" under Jim Bates was among the league leaders.

    Remember how most were slamming TT for his draft picks? Now people are sticking up for his drafting.

    Weird....

    I AGREE THAT IT'S VERY WEIRD.....just look at Nick Collins from Bethune-Cookman.

    Not exactly a collegiate powerhouse....I'm sure most people including me thought that the pick sucked. I guess after the Packers selected him the Ravens (who know a little about defense) called the Packers and congratulated them on an excellent pick. Turns out he's a keeper but not too many people were jumping for joy when the pick was announced.

    Oh, by the way, not to mention taking a QB with their first pick when the consensus was "Defense" all the way!

    My bad Z2C...I'm working on a 14 hour shift right now at school so I'm a little tired.......my apology.

    What I meant to say was that I agree with you...people are sticking up for his draft picks which IS weird.

    NOTE MY EDIT!!!

    Thanks for understanding Z2C :lol: I think after a few years, we'll look back on this past draft as one that was very good. Collins, Poppinga, Montgomery, Hawkins will all turn out to be fine players IMO...I'm still not sold on Rodgers but the potential is there because nobody should be considered a potential #1 without having some skill, right?

    Life is better with a little understanding :) np bro

    I am curious on Rodgers. I have this feeling he's gonna be another QB who won't WIN games for you but he won't LOSE games for you. More so I believe he will help us win games more then he will be the reason we lose games. He comes off as a good leader the little I have read about him and heard him say.

    Point being, I think the Packers are going to be in 'good' hands with Rodgers.

    I sure hope so...I agree with your assessment on Rodgers. He won't be the dynamic QB we're used to, but he should be able to manage the game and make all the throws the Packers will need him to make.
