    Usually, draft day. You see posts from me pointing out how TT simply refuses to draft an immediate offensive weapon, especially at receiver. Always written in a sensationalist form.

    I'll be quick and clear. He overlooked any immediate offensive improvement again at skill position in the first round.

    It's more than obvious the Pack has mediocre receivers and they only look good, because Rodgers is good. You could see the anger in his expressions during the Super Bowl when Jones drops perfect spirals right to the numbers.

    Yes, the pack won it all. so that means they should just avoid marquee offensive players. That must be be general consensus here.

    Rodgers deserves better.

    So, with any running back and receiver that you could justify taking in the first round off the board, who SHOULD we have taken?

    You complain, but you offer no solutions.

    If Rodgers gets a concussion, who throws it to star WR? OL first buddy. We're not the Bears

    You can get a solid OL in the second round. Or third. Or fourth, and so on. Keep in mind, Driver is pushing 40 now, and besides Jennings, there is great room for improvement.

    Leonard Hankerson would have been a solid choice. Miami U standout. Listed at 6'3 209. One thing the Pack doesn't seem to want is a big, imposing receiver. He will most likely already be taken by round 2.

    Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, Iowa standout, cleared of his legal trouble. has stated several times he would love to play for Aaron Rodgers, given the accuracy and consistent spiral. DJK broke every major receiving record at Iowa. Solid kick returner, great hands and a known big-play guy. Several scouting boards have said if it wasn't for his previous trouble, he had the potential to go late first/early second round.

    Main problem, DJK has a lot of swagger and might be too flashy for the citizens of Green Bay, as he's known for his custom-fitted Dolce & Gabbana suits.

    I was ome of many that wanted TT fired early last season,,,,,and look what happened at the end of the season. I finally realized TT knows what he is doing. He only drafted one bust(Harrell)\, so how can you question TT draft picks? Sit back and enjoy the show coach potato.

    Besides Jones and Green I didn't see any other WR in the first round. Reaching for a player can really haunt you later. Sherrod, although not a sexy pick, was a good solid pick.

    the only guy that would have been worth taking at 32 that was at a skill postion was Ingram but the Saints jumped up and got him.

    you're sitting there bitching but the last 1st round WR we took turned into a complete waste and a prima dona. Jennings and Nelson were a 2nd round picks. that late in the first round is pretty much 2nd round guys anyway, the only thing that the Packers could have done would have been to trade back and they probably still would have picked Sherrod.

    Wow.

    living in the Detroit area, I have witnesses this ever year. the Lions would draft a sexy skilled RB, WR, QB, in the first Rd, most years in the top 10. The draft was always the Lions and their fans Superbowl every year. every year, fans would be buzzing as the Lions tried to build and rebuild their team with flashy, sexy picks, while filling in their interior lines with old worn out has Beene and low tiered draft picks. Kevin Smith, Roy Williams, Charles Rodgers, Mike Williams, Joey Harrington, Brandon Pettigrew, etc, etc, etc. It wasn't until they realized what they were doing, got rid of Matt Millen and his Knight-like draft mentality and started building their offense and defensive lines that has made them go from joke of the league and 0-16 to a possible playoff contender and to what others are calling on this forum "scary."

    Yes, everyone loves a flashy, sexy WR who wears custom suits in the first round. It gives them a warm, fuzzy feeling, and makes them feel like a draft winner, however that feeling is usually gone by November or earlier.

    My thoughts...

    This guy is nuts. Our receiving group stinks...... This guy wouldn't know a good receiving corp if it sat on his face. You won't realize what you've had until it disappears remember that. Everyone said Ryan Grant stunk. Well everyone was quick to learn that he is a good running back and how much we needed him.

    THIS^^

    For YEARS Detroit drafted skill players at the receiver position. And for YEARS they've been one of the worst teams in the NFL. Only now are they looking to turn it around.

    Sorry, but the OP is one of the dumbest I've ever seen, and that's saying something.

    If you drafted 5 or 6 unknown players per draft, and one or two turned out better than expected, does that make you a genius?

    No, it's called the law of average and even a dummy could do it.

    Oh, Knighted One...

    I wouldn't of minded picking up a receiver, I think we do need to tighten up our receiving corps bur I think we might land up working with what we have. I think we needed help with the Oline and Dline more, hence, T.T. got Sherrod when he came up.

    As for receivers, how many "quality" receivers are even going to be left by the time we get that far? Might be a little late for that....

    Yes your right any dummy can do it. Which is why the Jaguars, Panthers, Vikings, Seahawks, Eagles, Cardinals, Lions, Bills, Bengals, Falcons, Chargers, Texans, Browns, and the Titans all have Super Bowl victories.

    I call troll on this one.

    1) Kid has been registered since April 2011, has six posts, and is saying we normally see posts from him on draft day. Unless this kid has multple usernames that I'm unaware of, that's inaccurate.

    2) "Sensationalist form?" Just a clever way of saying you're whoring for attention, just like trolls.

    I'm ignoring it and moving on :).
