    Isn't exactly sure handed either.

    He's a Mike Sherman type of player. I don't mean that as an insult or anything. Sherman liked athletes. He liked projects with upside. A lot of times it didn't pan out. It did with Barnett whom was a bit of an athlete (played some safety) but it didn't with most. Thompson looks for football players. I think he'll pass on Ginn if he's there based on what he’s said and done in the past..

    Lynch has moved up on many draft boards. He is currently #8 on Mel Kiper's big board. He is # 10 on my current board.

    He simply will be drafted before the Packers get to draft.

    I watched the hi-lites on Lynch and to me they looked good but not wildly better than a dozen other films. I wouldn't give up a 1st for him given the obviously greater needs elsewhere, ergo TE, FS, Nickel back, etc. Besides, the improvement (or not) of our OL is going to have more effect on the running game than just a new face, IMO. It always does. If they can make the zone blocking work this year, even Morency will look good.

    By who?

    Miami has Ronnie Brown.
    Pittsburgh has Willie Parker. Ignore Countdown having Lynch there because they simply will not take Lynch.
    San Fran has Frank Gore.
    St. Louis has Steve Jackson.

    Only way I see Lynch going in the top 10 is if Cleveland trades down to like 7 and takes Adrian Peterson and Houston is left to take Lynch at 8.

    Otherwise he's going to fall to #16 for the Packers. The only thing you have to worry about is a team like the Giants or Jets trading up in front of Green Bay to take him. Outside of that he's going to fall because RB just isn't a huge need in the NFL right now. There are a lot of good young ones already in the league.

    Porky, I don't think the Jets are going to be looking for a RB, particularly because I believe they got their guy last year in Leon Washington. He did show some ability, and I'd think Mangini coming over from the Pats would know the value in investing some time in players that show you something.

    The Giants are the only team that I'd be concerned about, but I'd think the new GM would be really keen on keeping his picks. Trading for Manning cost the Giants a ton in terms of future picks, and I think they are seeing the effect with no real good players who are about to enter their prime.

    I do agree with you, that I really don't see any team trading to get Lynch.

    Washington will flourish in a 2 back system, the Jets will take a RB early but its touch and go whether they decide to trade up or not, the joker in the pack is the Redskins, they are likely to do anything with their 1st round pick so dont be surprised to see someone throw some trade offers on their desk.

    I read something that the Jets might offer a 2nd for Michael Turner of San Diego so that could take them out anyways. Washington seems more like a scat back to me.

    It's just a matter of need when it comes to backs. Like last year nobody thought DeAngelo Williams and Laurence Maroney would fall so far and they fell into mid and late round 1. Green Bay is in great position to pickup Lynch. I think the hard part for the Packers would be if Lynch and Jarrett are both on the board when we pick. Then what do we do? I opt for Lynch because he can help out in the passing game as well as the running game but can't say I'd be mad if we got Dwayne Jarrett. Although my honest opinion is Jarrett is gone by the time we pick.
