    Getting Bulaga would be a dream come true. There are numerous scenarios that he could fall to us but with his stock rising tremendously, the packers would need a miracle to get him.

    This highlights are a little selected. If you take a look at Brandon Graham's, you'll see him beating Bulaga quite often.

    However, I'm no longer the opinion that Bulaga is just ordinary, and wouldn't be a great addition. From his highlights, as well as the Iowa GT game, I'd have to say Bulaga is a very good prospect.

    The one I'm more impressed with, in terms of OL, and that could be in our reach, is Charles Brown. Mainly because of his pass blocking skills.

    Iupati is a monster, and would also be a great addition. But I saw something on film and at the Senior Bowl that deeply worries me, specially on our team: He more often than not HOLDS the opponent. And the last thing we need is another penalty prone OL...

    Apparently Bulaga had a Thyroid condition, so that is actually a good excuse when looking at when he faced Graham.

    His thyroid issue is like a boo boo compared to the severity of football-related injuries. It's highly treatable and it won't hamper his on-the-filed abilities.

    What happened when he faced Graham? Did he get dominated or what?

    Graham dominated most of the contest. Watch both players highlights (you can find both vids in here), and you'll see.

    O Brien Schofield did some damage to Bulaga as well. If he does fall to us at pick 23, then my only concern will be: can he block Jared Allen?

    Doesn't matter if it's old, Clifton is one the few lineman who actually mauled up Jared Allen.

    Btw back to the topic, here's some bittersweet news: NFL.com Blogs

    Heading into the combine Bulaga's biggest concern was him arm length. Now that he's silenced the critics he just moved himself up 3 or 4 spots in the draft. It looks absolutely impossible now for any chance of the pack drafting him.

    BULAGA MEASURES UP
    The other top tackle in NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock's rankings, Iowa's Bryan Bulaga, passed one test when he was measured with 33 1/4-inch arms.

    That's still on the short side for left tackle, but it ended speculation Bulaga might measure out in Robert Gallery territory (32 inches). The longer the arms, the harder it is for top pass rushers to get their hands on the tackle's body.

    BY THE NUMBERS
    Here are key measurables for the other top offensive tackles, sorted by arm length:

    Player, school (height ... weight ... arms ... hands)
    * Bruce Campbell, Maryland (6-6 ... 314 ... 36 1/4 ... 10 1/2)
    * Russell Okung, Oklahoma State (6-5 ... 307 ... 36 ... 10 1/2)
    * Charles Brown, Southern Cal (6-3 ... 303 ... 35 1/4 ... 11 3/8)
    * Vladimir Ducasse, UMass (6-4 ... 332 ... 34 3/4 ... 9 5/8)
    * Trent Williams, Oklahoma (6-5 ... 315 ... 34 1/4 ... 9 3/4)
    * Anthony Davis, Rutgers (6-5 ... 323 ... 34 ... 10 1/8)
    * Bryan Bulaga, Iowa (6-5 ... 314 ... 33 1/4 ... 9 1/4)

    Charles Brown is certainly getting my attention more and more. I'd really like a chance to take him if Bulaga isn't available.

    If Campbell runs under 5.0 40, Undead Al will take him.

    36 1/4 inches arms, are you kidding me????

    BTW, Brown is over 300 pounds. That's good for the team that takes him, but might be bad, because he might come off before we pick.

    Okung is only a few pounds more than brown.

    Browns arm length is longer than

    Vladimir Ducasse
    Trent Williams
    Anthony Davis
    Bryan Bulaga

    Sounds like we may have a Left Tackle
