    this site is awesome. All you need to do is set the winners of week 16 accordingly and predict the winners of the week 17 games. Then hit the draft order tab and you'll see what the draft order would be should your predictions happen. I know it sounds confusing but you'll understand it. You need Excel to do this however. Here's the link: http://home.new.rr.com/mffl03/draftorder.xls

    EDIT: YOU NEED TO SET YOUR SECURITY LEVEL TO 'LOW' IN ORDER TO SORT THE TEAMS ON THE DRAFT ORDER TAB. I FORGOT TO MENTION IT, SORRY!

    Yeah I did, what you have to do is simple.

    Go to Tools> Macros> Security>Set it to Medium. Close the file, then when you reopen it click yes to trusting it or whatever, remake your picks and so forth.

    Who do you think we could land in that situation? I think there is tremendous potential for #5 coming to Lambeau.

    yeah i think we difinately have a shot at Reggie. I was doing different scenarios where I had us having the 3rd pick with NO and HOU in front of us. This scenario had the Texans beating the 49ers and the Jets beating Buffalo next week. Who knows really. I'm just hoping for at least a top 5 pick. If Bush isn't there, I would us to get AJ Hawk. But like you said, Bush coming to Green Bay is legit.

    :wtf: if you think that we have a shot at Bush with anything below the second overall pick, you are nuts. Texans want QB or RB, Saint's want QB but since Mcallister is injured, could go for a RB. 49ers got a QB, need a legit RB. Jets need a QB, and someone to eventually takeover for Martin. Only way Packers have shot at Bush is the #1 slot.

    we wont get bush. We were very bad this year, bad enough to deserve #1 pick, but we wont get it. Hopefully we get someone that can help us the next year right away. I swear if we get a guy and I hear the words "potential" and "project" I am going to go nuts.

    Wow,

    1) Can one week make that much a difference? I don't trust this sheet.
    2) Can the Jets win one of two?
    3) Millions of dollars(over length of contract) seperate the draft positions.
    4) A mistake is costly
    5) Where would the Packers be if Longwell made a few more kicks?
    6) Which GM is dumb enough to trade up for the Packer pick?

    if we can get an additional second out of trading down...well worth it...if we are in position to draft leinart or d'brick (best offensive tackle out there), this will come true, plenty of great prospects will be available on the first day

    Who says we won't get Bush? If it so happens, as predicted we have the 3rd or 2nd pick, why wouldn't SF or Houston trade down?
    Lets say we give Houston Ahman Green, this year's 1st round pick and and next year's #3...

    BTW Ryan, Why is it that when I post a Bush thread it gets moved and this one doesn't?

    We'd actually have to sign Green in order to trade him. You can't trade a guy who isn't under contract.

    And as far as our pick goes, the best case scenario I can see is the 4th pick. Sure there's a chance at #3 but I don't see things sorting out that way.

    That's why they play the game... WE DON"T know what is going to happen.

    The best case scenario has us with the 1st or 2nd pick... Is it really the BEST case scenario?
