    If that´s your thinking process we should stop talking about the draft immediately as none of those guys had a chance to prove anything in the NFL so far.

    I agree that Jones has to be replaced, but not by Shazier though. Burnett will be fine at SS as long as paired with a solid FS.

    I agree the Packers running game is way better than in 2012. You´re wrong about the Seahawks D-line though as they have added Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Tony McDaniel since the Fail Mary game and Brandon Mbane has developed into a great player in the meantime.

    No. Everyone has a right to share what they think a player projects or doesn't project.
    and none of them played more then 60 percent of the snaps in a game last year.

    True, but they will probably add 2013 third round pick Jordan Hill and fifth round pick Jesse Williams to the rotation and can add another guy in this year´s draft.

    Based on what is available at 21 I think the discussion should be "trading back" and what options are in mid -second to 4th round.

    None of them had an injury similar to the one Sherrod suffered. It´s always fun when fans thinking second year players on the Packers will take a huge step forward from their rookie season but would never agree that will work for other teams as well.

    Two knee injuries and surgeries on same knee for a DL usually doesn't have a happy ending. Seahawks have there own problems.

    Agreed. But if he´s able to stay healthy Williams was considered a first round talent before last year´s draft.

    If Sherrod could be a better swing tackle then Newhouse was I would be happy at this point.

    He didn´t impress me at all during his rookie season, but I still expect him to be better than Newhouse.

    Getting back to the draft and pick no.21, If a guy like Mosley isn't there I think you trade back because there there is a lot of comparable prospects to be gotten in 2nd and 3rd and maybe 4th. If one or two of those QB's fall to 21 I think there are teams that would trade up to get one. If your TT why not get yourself another shot to hit if the prospects are somewhat comparable in upcoming rounds?

    If none of Mosley, Clinton-Dix and Pryor are there at #21 I´m totally fine with Thompson trading back.

    I don't see Dix or Pryor being there. Too many teams need a safety. How about trading up for Mosley if only a few spots?

    I would be fine with trading up for either Mosley or Clinton-Dix if our third round pick would be enough to do it.

    Isn't it a little concerning to you the current and recent record or Bama DB's reaching there potential in NFL?

    No, the only thing I´m interested in is that Clinton-Dix is the best free safety in the draft. Lacy worked out pretty well for us afer Ingram and Richardson didn´t for their respective teams.

    Yeah but Lacy is such a different type of back then those two guys. I mean he is unique. I don't see anything real unique with Dix that merits a first round pick. Lacy dropped because of injury concerns. It will be interesting to see in a few years what Dix does. I think he is a good player but I am just not sold. I think Brooks has more upside and can be gotten later.

    IMO Clinton-Dix will turn into a solid contributor at FS, don´t expect him to turn into a superstar though. I would be perfectly fine with drafting Mosley in the first and Brooks in the second round.

    Just the first half. ;) After that he was fine. I chalk it up to just a bad day at work...no one avoids them entirely.

    That would be sweet if they got Mosley and Brooks.

    There seems to be some question as to whether he projects as a TE, 4-3 DE or LB. That can happen with guys who played one year of football in Division II. His father was an 11 year NFL DE; junior (or is it III) played 4 years of college basketball, the trendy training ground for TEs.

    Likely a multi-year project before you know what you've got. Practice squad material.

    I would be fine with bringing him in as an UDFA, don´t want to use a draft pick on him though.
