    That's key to me, really.

    I think it's one hard task to find a guy that can flat-out manhandle a position. Sometimes you predict one will, but it doesn't turn out that way.

    But the competition, excluding the QB, takes the best of everyone.

    Just having a shadow will make Blackmon better. And that's why I want another kicker, at least for TC.

    Obviously we're disagreeing that Trindon is worthy of a late round pick. That's fine.

    That's the point. I'm not talking about Holliday. And neither it was your question.

    It was about strickly KR/PR guys being effective/important in the NFL. I do think they're worth a late round pick.

    I do think Holliday will be a very good one, though...

    It's nice having a good returner, no doubt. Of course returners can have an impact on a team, any player can. Usually getting a pure returner prospect in the draft doesn't yield many great results from what I've seen. Maybe you know something I don't.

    Run DMC is nasty just because he can do it all KR/PR/RB/Slot, but if we are talking about getting a good returner then we need to look at mardy gilyard. Even though we dont really need a WR this guy is explosive and has GREAT field vision. Oh yea and he is ranked top 12 in NCAA history for KR yds.

    Look......our special teams could not get any worse. Making the statement that our special teams suck......does not even describe how ****** it really is. Its obvious that what TT or our coaching staff has done so far to improve in this area.........has not worked. I heard this statement somewhere but not sure where.....and I will share it with everyone.

    "Doing the same thing over and over.....and expecting different results........is nothing short of insanity":suicide2:

    Now......with all that being said.........I am pretty sure that picking someone like Holliday in like the 5th or 6th round.........isn't going to hurt any. I mean ****.......look at Harrell and Brohm!!!! Both of those were a total waste.

    ???? The '05 Bears had Devin Hester who was singlehandedly keeping that team in on certain games. Had Hester not scored or returned for as many yards as he did I think the bears would have lost at least 5 or 6 games out of their 13-3 season and never make the playoffs.

    Uh, he certainly helped them, but their defense was beyond amazing. They basically got to the SB with that dominating defense.

    Yes it could. We could use that draft pick for a different position we need more.

    The positions we need more should already have been addressed by the 5th or 6th. Now I am just randomly throwing these guys names out there in different rounds, its not my Mock Draft and some of these guys will be gone but others have a good chance of being there when we make our picks.

    1st Round / OT Charles Brown

    2nd Round / CB Brandon Ghee, Perish Cox or Dominique Franks
    other possible picks OLB Koa Misi, Navarrow Bowman

    3rd Round / Safety Nate Allen, Reshad Jones, or Darrel Stuckey
    4th Round /OLB Rickey Sapp, Dekota Watson
    5th Round / DE George Johnson
    6th Round / Punter Mesko
    7th Trindon Holliday

    I think most of our needs would pretty much be met and it does not even count the extra 2 picks we get. The only other needs would be to fire our special teams coach......and kick the tree stump named Jarrett Bush to the curb.

    Most experts are predicting Nate Allen to go to early 2nd, not beyond late 2nd, and that Ghee, Cox and possibly Franks could be available in the 3rd.

    Then again, Mitch King was as far as a 2nd rounder last year, and didn't even get drafted.

    But I like your picks... And agree with Mesko and Holliday. But some are saying that he's a late 5th...

    I'd much rather get more depth at other positions from the 5th round and on. In the 2nd or 3rd it would be ideal to get a returner/other position.


    What's with everyone loving Mesko? He's a good punter and all, but it seems like everyone wants to draft him in the 5th or 6th.

    Have you seen the last 2 guys that punted for the Packers?

    It's not about Mesko, it's about them. But Mesko do projects as a nice punter, and has played in similar conditions to Lambeau...

    I see that someone has been reading my material... :)

    Mesko is everything and anything this team needs. Zoltan Mesko is the savior and answer to anything green bay. GO ZOLTAN!!

    There's that, also.

    Having the Mighty Quinn and the Great Zoltan on your team is priceless IMHO...

    I think alot of people like Matt Dodge. Me personally........if we got Dodge or Mesko I would be fine with it. They are both pretty good......in my opinion.
