    hmm I dont see us taking a tackle in the 1st. doubtful on a WR. Not a QB. Should be able to narrow the likely guys to be picked, if we stay at our draft position, down to around 10.

    True, but I thought the point of a big board is to rank all prospects, no matter the position. If Jake Matthews or Sammy Watkins falls to 21, TT better take him!

    If Jake Matthews or Sammy Watkins falls to 21, 20 other teams should have their heads examined.

    Yes, I agree. However, just because Watkins and Matthews are sure fire top 5 picks on January 29th, doesn't mean they will be in May. I guarantee those players are top five picks on TT'S board, as of today.

    Again, it's early, a lot of things can happen from now till May 8. (i.e. Shariff Floyd and Eric Fisher)

    Ted doesn't take non QB skill players in the 1st, he always picks from major conferences in the 1st, he doesn't draft OL who haven't played LT or C, and he doesn't like to draft players under 5'11. (Really it's 5105, and he does make exceptions to that last one.) If you're making a board, fit, position value, and character/medical needs to be evaluated. If you're making a Packers board, you need to make it using the same parameters the Packers would.

    Who thought at this time a few years ago that Rodgers would be available at 26?

    Purpose of the big board is to get an idea where all the prospects lie. Great tool to judge trade ups or downs. I think, that even if one of those top QBs makes it to the Packers, they would consider it. Probably not, though, because they are not probably evaluating them.

    I recall Thompson saying that the idea of Rodgers being available at their pick they only considered a few weeks prior to the draft. They then went back and started reviewing all the tape on him.

    Taking from scout.com's top 50 draft eligible players I eliminated positions we wont likely draft (QB, O line, WR, RB) in the first round.

    The top 5 players (most likely will be gone) all graded out at 5 stars, the rest 4 stars.

    So from that list do you guys have anyone you wouldnt want to draft and who you favor?

    obviously early but there doesnt really seem to be even a consensus on the early picks
