    I'd like to propose a different kind of draft contest. Just throw out 10 names. Just players that you think the Packers will wind up drafting, in whatever round, for whatever reason. We'll see who gets the most right after the draft.

    Rules:
    1) You don't need to work up an entire mock draft - just a list of names. You don't have to guess which round, and you don't have to predict trades.

    2) You may change your predictions at any time before midnight, April 27th. This will allow for any changes caused by trades or signings between now and then.

    Here's my preliminary list:
    Marshawn Lynch, RB, Cal
    Michael Griffin, S, Texas
    Ted Ginn, WR, Ohio State
    Kenny Irons, RB, Auburn
    Dwayne Jarrett, WR, USC
    Jacoby Jones, WR, Lane
    Michael Bush, RB, Louisville (used to be John Beck, QB, BYU, but his stock is rising too fast)
    Zach Miller, TE, Arizona State
    Josh Swogger, QB, Montana
    Ben Patrick, TE, Delaware

    (Obviously, I'm not saying that I think we'll draft all these players. Just trying to hedge my bets. :wink: )

    I don't think we'll get him. I think he goes to Buffalo at #12.

    <--* bump *-->

    With only a week to go before the real thing, I thought I'd push this one back to the top and see if anyone was interested or wanted to change their votes.

    BTW, I changed my list to include Lynch...

    I suppose I should at least offer some meager prize (a genuine imitation backup of one of my Packer DVDs, maybe?)

    Since69.....just one question. How did you come up with Josh Swogger as a Packer pick? Have you seen him play? I'm not trying to be a smart *** here.....I watched Swogger all last year as I go to all the Griz games. He's good and has an arm, but couldn't outrun a one-legged ant.

    People out here think he won't go anywhere and may sign as a free agent and then get cut. But you never know.

    I've heard his name come up also, and he did seem to do okay at the combine. He is very smart and very accurate passer, but boy, when our line broke down on protection it got ugly. I think he commented once that he know knew how Custer felt at the Little Big Horn.

    WR-Robert Meachem, Tennessee
    FS-Reggie Nelson, Florida
    CB-Darelle Revis, Pitt
    CB-Leon Hall, Michigan
    WR-Dwayne Jarrett, USC
    TE-Greg Olsen, Miami

    RB-Antonio Pittman, Ohio State
    RB-Brian Leonard, Rutgers
    CB-Marcus McCauley, Fresno State
    CB-Tanard Jackson, Syracuse

    ...and after throwing these names around the first round is really up in the air

    The results are in! And the winner is... nobody.

    No one correctly guessed any of our picks. The only conclusion I can draw here is that Ted Thompson knows nothing about our team needs or about evaluating talent...

    Better luck next year, guys.
