    This thread is for talking about the draft during Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Even afterwards. I know we have the shoutbox but this thread is ideal so we can go back and read it and see everyone's thoughts and not have anyone get buried in the shoutbox.

    If a moderator could make this thread sticky and fix the title so there is a space between draft and thread, that would be great.

    Hour and a half until the draft starts. How are you watching the draft?

    My guess is Jones or Patterson in first. Maybe Bernard in second? More like my wish list.

    I hope the Pack grabs the best defensive player available.

    It's such an interesting draft so far. Offensive/Defensive Linemen followed by a small, fast receiver. Just shows you how weak the top tier quarterback, receiver, running back and secondary talent is in this draft.

    Lacy, Ogletree or Elam.

    I'd be happy with either of these players. Hopefully one of them falls to us and we take them.

    I have only thoroughly scouted offensive players so idk. I haven't heard of him having character issues.

    Kyle Long as the first round pick for the Bears? Long is a project, not a first rounder IMHO. Emery took a step back with this pick.

    Love it.

    He's not undersized, at 6'4 he's about the right length and with his frame he could easily bulk up to the 290s without losing speed. Typically you want an NT around 330 pounds with a backup of a similar size. Then you need a 300-315 pounder for RDE(though he could play LDE) and then you want someone around 285-295 for LDE. Atleast one of your DLs need to be a pass rusher and I think Jones fits the bill. With his feet he'll be superb playing next to Matthews in passing situations and otherwise he'll be next to a very strong and physical Nick Perry, he'll be a good un for us.

    I'm just relieved Ted didn't up and do something goofy, like drafting a Reciever/Center or Manti Teo - ugh! I could just imagine the taunts from vike/bear fans if we wound up with Teo....

    (relieved)/Nice to see we addressed our interior pass rush and what not.

    And if he'd gone in the 2nd or 3rd round he would have been a good pick. First round?

    He started FOUR games at the FCS level. FOUR. Emery just made the kid a millionaire for starting four games, that's a mess.


    I love it.

    I really hope Jags don't take Geno with the 1st pick tomorrow.

    On to the second round; I'm looking for Thompson to take the best OLB available. Even if Perry is healthy and as good as we hope, we need depth there - more than anything else, I think. If Sherrod is deemed healthy, we don't need an O Lineman this early. If they do go that route, it's a sign of big doubt about Sherrod.

    would mean the end of Raji in GB that's for sure.
