    JT is a host of a National Sports Radio show at night and Chris runs his own Scouting Consulting business where he scouts NFL and College personnel for NFL teams and help Universities and NFL teams in their Coaching evaluations and Searches.

    JT started out as a radio announcer for Oakland he said and was there when Woodson came in...He agrees that Oakland was not going to pay him what he wanted for the UNDERACHIEVING he did for them. He said the guy has all the talent in the world, but just could not get it going. He then went on to say that a change of scenery and being able to play a true corner will help him. He thinks the injuries he has had is slowing him down but it was still a good pick up.

    As far as the draft, both of them fell that D' Ferg WILL NOT BE THERE AT 5. They both fell that Hawk will be there and the Pack will do very well picking him. A caller from Milwaukee ( no not me) called in and asked about trading down to get more picks. Chris said he does not foresee TT doing that at all. Chris went on to say how some strange things could happen and D' Fergy slips to 5 the Packers will have a tough choice, in either him or Hawk.

    If this does happen I would be very happy with D'Brickashaw Ferguson to help protect Brett !!!

    this is gettin D'crazy

    we dont need a freakin tackle, and were not moving lineman around, stick to the new scheme and hope it works better. this would be the biggest wasted pick ever if we take him..... i would be D'pissed, sign a guy at your 5th pick in the draft and have him sit for at least 2 seasons barring any injury. come on i think were way way way better off gettin hawk or davis.

    Agreed, Chamuko. The guy is a violent player that relishes dishing out the hurt.

    Sets the tone for an entire defense...plus he just reeks of being a TT kind of guy.

    AJ Hawk would give our defense the attitude that its been lacking--he is just a remarkably tough player

    That said, our signing of Woodson decreases the need for TT to hit a 'home run' with this pick and bring in someone who will ignite this defense right away

    Mario Williams is still my top choice, I dont think we get a sniff of him, so for me its AJ Hawk, I still want him, we would have a great linebacking core...as for D'Brick and Vernon Davis, I don't think they're all areas of great need, D'Brick could be a good pick if Tauscher's ready to move over to guard this soon,

    Saturday will be interesting to say the least

    The Packers do need a tackle. Look at the depth behind the starters. Klemm is in the final year of his contract. Having Ferguson learn the Offense by playing Guard while being the OT of the future would be great.

    Ferguson is at the top of my draft board. Hawk is #2. Williams #4 and Bush is #5. The Texans should take Ferguson #1 as he is not only the best propect he is a good fit for them.

    The first round pick should be a starter. Williams isn't with the Packers.
    Some time soon the Packers will need a good OT. Once Barry is cut he is out of football.

    If you watch some film of D'Brick you will see alot of similarities of a guy we lost 2 years ago, Wahle. I believe he could play guard without alot of issues in the NFL.

    No...We still need to hit a home run with the #5 pick. If we blow this pick it will haunt us for a long time.

    I didn't do a good job explaining there, by hitting a home run i meant...a home run from an '06 standpoint, someone who can come in and make an impact right away...i still want AJ Hawk, but we can get someone who could take time to develop, Vernon Davis or D'Brick...
