    I don´t know if the Packers would have to trade up to select either Jack or Ragland because of medical concerns with both of them. I would like Thompson to address inside linebacker with either one of them should the medical staff feel comfortable about it or a hybrid safety/linebacker like Su´a Cravens. If Chris Jones drops to the Packers pick I would be OK with going defensive line again.

    Over 2/3 of that list are defensive players. Only 2 wrs, 2 rbs, 2 te's, 2 ol, and 1 qb. Those numbers will change so I think some of the good defensive players will drop to the Packers. I don't know much about Cravens. What lb would he play?

    If talent like Jack and Ragland are passed on at 27, I have to think we're just not interested at all.

    Cravens would most likely play a hybrid safety/linebacker position and cover running backs and tight ends on passing downs.

    I don't fully agree with that. It is risk vs reward. The injury risk may not justify a 1st round pick but very well could justify the less valuable 2nd round pick

    That could fit well. Let Barrington and Ryan play on running downs and replace one of the two on passing downs

    It´s not that easy though as there are a ton of downs on which both throwing or running the ball is an option. Cravens is capable of defending the run though as well.

    Obviously. But there more obvious downs and even if he could only help there that would be a big help. Then see if he could beat out Barrington or Ryan for full time snaps. Just wonder if he can hold up against the run at that size. Some reports said he gets lost inside

    I bet we go WR in round 2. But I hope we go ILB or DL again.

    Cravens is a hard hitting, sure tackler capable of making stops in the run game.

    He's honestly like a meatier version of Bob Sanders if you will. I would be satisfied with him in the 2nd for sure.
