    Given we are all chomping at the bit to get to draft day, I figured it would be interesting to list some guys that you would like GB to draft in the 3-7 round range. I'll kick it off with a couple guys (using nfl.com for the bio):

    1. WR Johnnie Lee Higgins, UTEP (6-0, 188, 4.29 40) - figures to go in round 4

    2. S Sabby Piscitelli, Oregon State (6-3, 225, 4.44 40) - Third round

    I'm a believer that the Pack will take Piscatelli, don't know what round but this kid is a beast.
    I would like to see them grab Lee Marana RB out of Michigan Tech in the 7th round.
    He rewrote the record books at Div II Michigan Tech coming out of one of the strongest Div II conferences in the country this kid is a stud. Big fast and strong.
    He played running back and linebacker in highschool and would be a deamon on special teams.
    I doubt he will be drafted but he is the prototypical player that Ted likes to bring in as a nondrafted freeagent.
    The other plus with him is, he was a state wrestling champ in high school.

    Tough SOB!

    Exactly who I want, he lead the NCAA in yards last year and other then his size I don't see to many downfalls on him.

    That's what I've been thinking... if he were an average size back he'd probably be the top prospect coming out.

    What does Wolfe offer that we don't already have in morency. If we get a back, I'd rather he be someone that can handle the 20-25 carry load - not another scat back to throw back with the others we have.

    I don't understand why people don't think he is durable or able to take the work load, he hasn't been injured in college and has been extreamly productive as a starter. The only reason he isn't a first day prospect is because he is only 5'7. I think he would be amazing in the ZBS and would be very productive especially splitting carries with another bigger back like Morency.

    John Wendling, safety from Wyoming.

    Great football player and leader has size and speed to make it in the NFL. His only downside is that he hasn't faced top competition. But both Nick Collins and Darren Sharper didn't play against great competition in college. I want this guy, kind of reminds me of John Lynch with his tackling and aggressiveness.

    Wolfe is 5-7, 175. That doesn't cut it in the NFL. Plus, Morency is hardly a "bigger back" at 5-9, 208. That's the normal "speed back" size - ie Willie Parker, Westbrook, Jones-Drew. Wolf is 30 pounds below the normal speed back size. Now, if he had played well against top college players like Dunn did, maybe I would take a flier (but he's 2 inches smaller than Dunn). There are bigger backs with better speed and good production i would rather focus on. There's too many things working against Wolfe.

    Wendling would look great in GB. Maybe trade down in the second and get him?

    I like this list a lot (not only for scott Chandler)...maybe not Palmer he struggled with accuracy until his senior season.
