    Nice! I am a Hawkeyes fan here in Iowa and was really disappointed to see Kampman go.

    Now I have Bryan Baluga to cheer me up!

    He didn't look to happy, I hope his work ethic is for his employer not the NFL team he cheered for when he was young.

    I have watched several interviews of him this week. He always appeared even keiled in his emotions.

    Probably because he slipped down quite a few spots. Good for the Packers!

    First off way to go TT for initiating that perfect smokescreen! I mean he really did throw off a lot of people by suggesting he thought our Oline was good.

    Next what I'd like to say to every Packer fan is that Bulaga is a solid pick but not one that makes me ecstatic. I'm a bit impartial to him for the time being. Yes he's projected as a franchise LT but his skillset doesn't really show that. Like PackersRS mentioned a couple of days ago, Clifton is guy who gets by with being a technician. If you look at Bulaga he's the exact same way. Although having another Clifton isn't so bad, I thought the Packers could use an upgrade, not a Clifton-clone. Overall I give this pick a B+. Bulaga wouldn't be my first choice. Even if he doesn't pan out he'll definitely by our RT of the future and even beat out Daryn Colledge easily for the guard spot.

    Aaron Nagler of CHTV interviewed him, and he said he "used to cheer for the Bears when they were hot".

    That's a bummer right there, but he'll learn to love the Green and Gold.

    We suddenly have a GREAT starting OL with Clifton/ Lang or Bulaga/ Wells/ Sitton/ Tauscher.

    Bulaga on the team gives the flexibility of Lang playing LG, the weak spot of the line, or even him being the LG...

    I said this already in another thread, but my brother who is an aspiring mel kiper jr. told me during the orange bowl to watch bulaga, and that he would be a good fit for the pack. I definatley agree with him!

    Via Bulaga's Twitter:
    2 exclamation points, people. He's probably hates the Bears already with that kind of commitment.

    I'm really happy about this pick. Can't wait to see him play for the Packers.

    Now we can only hope to give up 20 sacks or so...Aaron will be even more dominant!

    I don't get it? Why is it sooo many people peg us as OT main need and now that we have one no one is all that happy about it? Satisfied but not happy.

    I would say it was an improvement, but calling a O-line that had major problems last year.........then suddenly its greeat after drafting Bulaga.....is stretching it. You wanna see the most improved line this year. Look at what SF 49ers did yesterday. Left Tackle and a OG in the first. Singeltary is going to have a line that wears out defenses in the first half and dominates them in the second half.

    I am definitely happy we got Bulaga though. Soooooo.......who on our roster is going to get the AXE???
