I totally agree. It is far too early to tell but if you can replace a hall of fame QB with the 24th pick and it works out then that alone will make it a good draft. What ever you do you will have to cut this kid some slack. He does not have to be a hall of famer or go to the pro bowl every year for him to be a success. I saw Neil Anderson follow Walter Payton and all I wanted him to be was a very good Neil Anderson and he did just that.PWT36 said:It is way too soon to make an intelligent assessment of Ted Thompson's first draft as Packer's GM. Ask the question in two or three years, by that time all the rookies who have potential will have realized their full potential. Example Javon Walker who took two NFL season to have his breakout year in '04. It took Bart Starr four years to become a starting QB for Vince Lombardi's Great teams of the 60's. You just never know when a NFL draft will be judged a success,average, or a bust. if Aaron Rodgers develops into a good quarterback for the Packers and era of having a new QB Rodgers instead of Favre goes smoothly. This a lone would make '05 draft a good draft and one of the highlites of GM Ted Thompson career. It has not been easy for Cowboys, Dolphins, Broncos, the 49ers replacing their old star QBs and none of those teams has done it as yet. We should all hope that Packers choice is successful, many teams in NFL in last 5 years or so haven't been.
