    OH COME ON!!! We have a franchise QB and we hear this? are you effing kidding me? Danny Wuerffel Junior? We need a LOT of help in other areas. NOT QB at this time. Even at back up, gotta give Flynn a chance to develop too right? Dont get it. Have another cheeseburger MM. If Jolly goes to jail and gets suspended which is a distinct possibility, we need to look at that as a need, not mentioning at least 5 other needs to get into the deep post season.

    This is nothing more than draft posturing, or wishful thinking. I would like to draft Eric Berry, probably won't happen though. IMO, this is just the Packers letting other teams behind them know there is the possibilty we MIGHT draft Tebow if/when he slips to us. Cmon, we're going to develop a QB after Rodgers went to his 1st ProBowl....for what reason? So we can say we did? Teams don't draft back-ups in the 1st/2nd rounds. The novelty of Tebow developing behind Rodgers in McCarthy's system is just that....a novelty. The Packers obviously think highly of Flynn, so the thought of drafting a QB high is preposterous to me. Don't spend too much time listening to what you hear in the next couple of weeks.

    I loathe the thought of taking Tebow.

    I hope Minnesota takes him to groom for a year behind Favre. Then when Favre is gone, Tebow can come in and suck it up.

    And I like Tebow. A lot. I just don't see him making it in the NFL at QB.

    As ghost of billy mays said you shouldn't read to much into this. At least 1 person from each team has said that they'd like a crack at Tebow, but does that mean they're all stepping over each other just to draft him? Honestly with the way Mccarthy has worked with Favre, Rodgers and Flynn it'd be interesting to see what he could do with Tebow. However I'd only advocate taking him if he goes undrafted or in the later rounds.

    TT is all about value.

    If he grades Tebow as a 2nd rounder, and he's sitting there at 3rd, he's going to really, really consider it.

    If Tebow is there at 4, sadly he takes him...

    Crabtree was at the top of his board last year and he passed, so you never know with ted.

    I cant imagine a situation where we end up with Tebow, and frankly I dont want 2.

    Yeah. But Raji wasn't so far in TT's board...

    But that one I guess is the exception to the norm. We were changing to a 3-4, and he needed bodies for it.

    I'm so glad he didn't get Crabtree, though. I think he's a great talent, but we definitely do not need another WR...

    Crabtree was most likely the BPA by the time the packers were on the clock. However there were a lot of doubts about him such as the fractured foot and the fact that he didn't really possess the speed to be an elite reciever. This is what probably put Raji ahead of Crab. Anyways I don't really want to ponder more on this, just glad TT made the pick that he did.

    I do think he would have been a good replacement for double D, and we could have used him in the return game. I have always thought it was a mistake not to take crabtree, but we will see in 5 years. WRs take awhile to develop. Raji didnt have much impact on our team this year, but I hope that changes.

    Imagine if we drafted cushing instead of Raji...

    He was at the top of the whole board, not just when we were up to draft. But I agree, no point in going back and rehashing this. Well save that for a couple years down the road. Side comment, speed is overrated in WRs, ask jerry rice.

    Regarding Crabtree, if I had to guess Raji and Crab were so close on his board that once they were both there need won out over luxury.

    Didn't Crabtree have Character issues or concerns? Over 10 other teams passed on him as well.

    Cushing is a 4-3 LB. Don't know if he could've played the 3-4 ILB...

    But if Raji pans out, it's the most important position in the 3-4, the NT. Without one, the whole D doesn't work...

    Not necessarily. USC runs a hybrid 4-3/3-4 defense. The starting LB's were:

    ROLB: Matthews
    ILB1: Mauluga
    ILB2: Maivia
    LOLB: Cushing

    Cushing played virtually the same role as Matthews in this defense. In fact, if Cushing was still available by pick 26, I believe the Packers would've taken him instead of Matthews.
