    A little early for draft threads admittedly but the thought just popped in my head. "If" Tua enters the draft and "if" hes there when the Packers pick comes up do you pull the trigger on him?

    Seems like with his injury I could see teams not wanting to wait a year for him to be ready to play but a team like GB would seem like a good spot where he could sit for a year and rehab

    Never too early for draft threads, especially after they get moved to the draft forum.

    Not sure but I don't think we can afford to do that. Rodgers' window is closing fast. We have to get the players in place like nect year. This season certainly was a giant step forward.

    IF we are there at 32, and Tua is there....trade back, someone is gonna jump at the option of Tua there.

    Doubt it happens, too many so called experts predicting he's going to be the steal if teams pass. He's going in the top especially when a QB like Lamar is doing his thing in Baltimore.

    Everybody has already passed on him at least once.

    Not necessarily true....Oakland for example has two other team's firsts....and while many teams may pass him with their first pick, if a QB needy team chose to go elsewhere and Tua is there at 32 (still first round options contract wise) I guarantee there will be offerings of solid variety for that pick.

    I think Tua will end up going top 7ish. I think Burrows and Herbert all go top 10. It's a new QB era unfolding with Jackson, Mahommes, and Watson leaving all GMs thinking they need one o those guys or always be in their dust.

    Tua will start demanding trades if he falls out of the Top 10. The Raiders(twice), Colts, Bucs, and Dolphins all pick in between 11 and 20.

    The Steelers, who don't have a pick at all in the 1st Round, may try to trade their 2021 pick to nab Tua should he start to slide. If we were at 32, I would demand their 2021 1st pick and their 2020 2nd to make it happen.

    Bama's LT, LB and WR are coming back for their senior years.

    Seems Saban is doing some selling to these guys, wonder if it is a sign of things to come and Tua returns with them.

    I believe Tua is going to be worse than Jemarcus Russell. Send him to the Jets.

    There are multiple articles of the Dolphins using one of their three 1st Round Picks to grab Tua, they are just trying to figure out which one. With the Packers projected to have the 30th Overall Pick Tua would have to pass by all the following teams for us to even have a chance:

    1. Bengals
    5. Dolphins
    6. Chargers
    7. Panthers
    12. Raiders
    13. Colts
    14. Buccaneers
    18. Dolphins
    19. Raiders
    23. Patriots
    26. Dolphins


    No way Tua slides that far to 30th, much less 32nd.

    What cues do you have that Tua is similar to Jamarcus Russell?
