    Kiper and McShay say it is Kenny Phillips the free safty out of Miami or Brandon Flowers CB out of Virgina Tech...Fox Sports has a mock draft with GB taking the TE out of Purdue...Dustin Keller...or we could get another D Line man...UG!!!

    I guess I'm not opposed to either, however, I have yet to see Ted take someone who is off the radar. Exception Hawk - not a tough call. Out of curiosity did anyone on this site call the Harrell pick pre-draft? If so, who was it and what are they saying right now?

    Don't we have a height requirement for corner? Flowers is like 5'9.

    I like Flowers, but I am now leaning more towards a guy like Antoine Cason if the Packers go for a CB in round one. I think Phillips is good, but I don't think we need a safety in round one. I like guys that can get it done in the trenches. NFL Network and Pro Football Weekly both have the Packers taking T/G Sam Baker now. It wasn't long ago when Baker was ranked AHEAD of Jake Long from Michigan. USC plays a zone-blocking scheme as well.

    Pretty sure Cason will be gone before #30 rolls around. Personally I think Rodgers-Cromartie is going to be a stud, but again dont know if he will still be on the board.

    Yes we do. That was a policy drafted under Holmgren. Flowers will make a very good cover 2 corner, however, we don't use that defense.

    Agreed, I'm still hoping for trading a second rounder for Lito Sheppard instead of training a rookie. I haven't given up on Williams or Blackmon either, but Blackmon can't seem to stay healthy.

    You gotta assume McKelvin and Cromartie will definitely be gone. Talib and Jenkins would've been gone but they seem to have slipped due to character questions or knee questions, respectively. Who knows about them. Cason could still be there. Flowers will be there.

    phillips maybe, flowers is not worth a 1st Round pick though. I'd rather draft O-line earlier than a Corner. heck. We could always take a RUnning back or a Tight End there.
