    Once again, history will play out this pick and the rest of the draft. Telling all of us just how right or wrong we were. It's fun to play the draft game, but if I was doing it professionally, I would probably just be good/bad enough to set myself up each year with having that #1 pick in every draft.

    Even with the Packers drafting Clark there are only a maximum of three defensive linemen ahead of Pennel on the depth chart. I don't see the team releasing him.

    Why do you think drafting Randall worked out?

    Imo, Thompson's draft board is very different from the posters here and probably most of the GM's in the league. No way to prove it but for the 3-5 years I've come to believe the Packers are outliers in assessing draft value.

    Oh, he'd certainly not be released for lack of talent or for a multi-game suspension. He'd be released if they have an indication of more trouble coming.

    Gil Brandt talked to several teams about Ragland's heart issue and none were concerned about it. If that's true I'm disappointed the Packers didn't draft him and expect he will be drafted early in the second.

    Fingers crossed for trading up? What do you think it would take? #2, #3 and #4?

    I said it before, I doubt that will happen, since if that info on his heart is true and they still had interest, they would have picked him last night.

    I doubt Thompson will trade up for a player he could have selected without giving up additional picks.

    I tend to agree. The only thing I could see happening here is that he valued Clark a bit higher then Ragland and thus grabbed him. But also has a high enough value on Ragland that he might be willing to part with picks to get him also.

    If I told you last week that we would have both Ragland and Clark and all it cost us was a 3rd and a 4th, would you have believed me?

    I doubt this is the case, but I also didn't think Ragland would be sitting there at #27. So I guess we will see tonight!

    What would it take to trade up into the top 10 tonight? I'm just curious. I doubt it would happen with us, but trading from where we are into the top 10 would equal what type of compensation?

    Well, I expected Clark to be there for the Packers second round pick so I would have most likely thought it would be have been too much to give up.

    Most likely the Packers third round pick.

    At least our #2, 3 and 4...maybe a pick from next year as well. With the quality of guys still on the board, I bet the asking price is pretty steep right now. That was why I threw out the name Hundley.....Browns pick first and they do need a QB.

    You think? If I look at the draft chart, that would only get us up to #42. But who knows. I think teams sitting in the top 5-10 spots are pretty happy with who is left to choose from.

    Which is technically within the top 10 of the second round. :D

    LOL...you are right......but I don't think getting to #42 will be enough to grab Mack or probably even Ragland, that is, if that was the goal.
