    Complete 7-Round Packers Mock Draft
    From Bleacher Report

    I don't think we take a WR with our 1st pick but Young does have KR ability. I love looking at all these mock drafts.

    2 WRs? that would slightly surprise me but I would accept it as a need if TT drafted like that.

    TT always drafts the best player available. I have confidence he'll make the right pick. WR, CB, OLB, DE and OT are all fine choices by me. Take the best player available at one of those positions.

    and i think a taking a couple centers/guards would be good. I am not sure of their intentions for Lang. I like him, but i want him to be able to find his niche and stick with it.

    Ted Thompson doesn't draft any differently than 90% of the leagues decision makers. Every team has a bunch of potential needs, how guys like Thompson rank those needs is the only difference between general managers and coaches.

    You can go through any Thompson draft and call that pick a need, and I could go through any GM/coaches draft around the league and find the same thing.

    Even though we have a great roster have a ton of various needs.

    1. A new QB to develop behind Matt Flynn who will be traded this year.
    2. A 3rd down RB.
    3. A WR to develop behind Jordy Nelson.
    4. A RT to develop behind Bulaga who will move to LT soon.
    5. A LG to develop behind TJ Lang if Colledge leaves.
    6. A C/G to develop behind Scott Wells.
    7. A DE to develop behind our young DE's.
    8. A DT to compliment B.J. Raji and his heightened PT.
    9. A LOLB
    10. A MLB to groom behind Bishop
    11. A CB to develop behind Shields
    12. A SS to compete with Morgan Burnet
    13. A return specialist.

    There are a ton of different scenarios.

    I agree with much of what you have listed but I also think most of your "needs" are already taken care of by players already on the team.

    1. As much as I like Flynn and wish he could stay we all know he can help us out if traded..and most likely for draft picks..I dont know how high the coaches are on Harrell but he's been in McCarthy's QB school for a little while now so he might be servicable, who knows. Not worth a pick IMO.
    2. I think and kinda hope B-Jax will resign, I know he wants to start and I'm sure he'll explore FA but I dont think a team is going to overpay him cause he's proven he isnt a starter, so I think the Pack will resign him and retain one of the better 3rd down backs in the league.
    3. James Jones? He will be back in green and gold. He has just as much potential as Nelson, I think very highly of both of them and I think they both clearly dropped too many passes this season..and easy ones at that..its not that they dont have good hands they just need to work on having better focus.
    4. 1st round draft pick will cover this in my mind...I will continue on this at #9
    5. Marshall Newhouse..big strong kid who should improve this offseason and provide some solid depth..wouldnt be against drafting a stud if one falls though, but I dont think it's a need.
    6. Nick McDonald..havnt seen much of him but McCarthy has been high on him since training camp. Again if a solid player falls in the draft I think TT will pull the trigger but I dont think this is a need.
    7. CJ, Neal, Wynn. All young plus throw in Jolly possibly who is still young as well. Theres pretty good depth here already, but obviously if Jenkins leaves an early to mid round pick could/should be used here.
    8. I like what Green did since becoming a Packer but I wouldnt mind TT spending a mid round pick on a player who could play both NT and DE, a big athletic body who is still a little raw.
    9. Im guessing you mean ROLB here..but continueing on what i was saying at #4 I think if we swing a trade with Fylnn we could possibly end up picking twice in the first round, #32 and an earlier spot for Flynn and one of our picks (probably 3rd roundish) thus we can address the two true needs on our team. OT, and OLB to play across from Clay.
    10. I think Hawk will be back and Barnett is gone..but Chillar will be healthy and will be very solid as a back up to Hawk and Bishop. But I wouldnt mind us spending a late round pick here for depth.
    11. I think Lee provides some nice depth but with woodson only getting older I think spending a early to mid round pick here is nessecary.
    12. Charlie Peprah? Resign him and I like having both him and
    Burnett at SS fighting for the starting spot. Both pretty solid players.
    13. I dont like the idea of spending a draft pick on a "return specialist" unless A. they are Hester jr. or B. they are solid players at another position WR or CB.

    There's no way James Jones comes back. Despite his flaws he's coming off a Superbowl win, he's going to go after the money, and someone will pay him. He's not going to come back and continue to compete with Jennings, Nelson, Finley, and Driver for the ball, the guy wants to spread his wings. I can't see him taking a discount and continuing to put up modest numbers, he wants 'his'.

    This is WAY to early for this, but imagine next years draft with two compensation picks if we let Cullen Jenkins and James Jones walk and they get signed for good sized contracts!!! a fourth and fifth rounder for the both of them?

    I'd rather just keep them both, but I guess compensatory picks are better than nothing.

    Why wouldnt he stay. The coaches remain high on him for good reason and we all know DD is going to have to retire soon and his role is diminishing. He is part of a very very close group of WR and with Jenkins probably leaving we have the money to pay him..not over pay him but pay him enough to keep him around. I'd like to think the coaches more than anything will want to keep the close knit group of WR together..it makes them all better and they all know this.

    I don't know, as competitive as I am, I'd want to be a #1, especially since I have a ring already. Not just the money, but the prestige that goes with it. Part of being a good professional football player is the competitive fire, if I was Jones, I'd want my shot at the lead position.

    He's gunna get that shot with DD retiring soon and his role deiminishing. Everyone thinks Jordy is a lock for the 2 spot after his SB performance. Dont get me wrong im a huge Jordy fan but he had alot of drops in that game. I think the chance of sticking around with Jennings and Jordy would be huge for Jones and with as much as we air it he knows he is going to get the ball. He can be a better wideout here with those other guys to push him and A-Rod throwing the ball than going somewhere else with a worse QB and supporting cast. The ultimate goal is to win a championship, yes he's got one but its his competitiveness that should drive him to want another, and GB is the best place for him to get that.

    JJ is gone imo. TT drafts a WR in the first 3 picks.
