    Yeah, me too. But I think Lattimore is a better option than jones if he works on his mechanics mostly this offseason and preseason. He's more athletic and has a better motor. I'm high on Lattimore though, as most of you aren't.

    I wouldn't want to pin my hopes on Jones with anything.

    While that is sometimes true, I don't think it is true in this case. IMO Wilde is right, Cleveland offered the Packers the same deal they offered the Eagles, one pick later. That's far away from 'having no idea'.
    This is as shallow and vapid “analysis” as you’ll find. It’s reminiscent of this Auburn fan’s “analysis” of the Lacy pick: “Lacy is too slow to help”. Nothing wrong with being a fan, but perhaps you should take the blinders off.

    Clinton Dix is a safe pick. We don't know if he'll become a pro bowl caliber player, but we know he'll be starter material, at the least. I'm happy with that. All you gamblers need to remember what it was like GAMBLING on MD Jennings and McMillian.

    They don't like that he was injured in 2013.

    I like Clinton-Dix OK as a player (a better pick than Perry or Jones), but he puts Hyde on the bench and does not address the difficulties with coming up with $15 - $20 mil per year for Nelson and Cobb or replacing Williams.

    Bush is not under contract. I think this is the year his limited value as a gunner will not be sufficient.

    I have read your lack of appreciation for Perry and Jones. This season, you will be shocked at how good both of these guys have become. I will predict 15 sacks between the two and the defense will land in the top 10 (for points given up)

    Peppers was signed for a reason. Neal was brought back for a reason. Perry and Jones won't get enough snaps for that kind of production even if they were capable of it.

    Perhaps you mistakenly quoted my post because this has nothing to do with what I posted. I responded to you posting about HRE having no idea what offers there were to trade down. Read the Wilde piece I linked and watch Thompson's reaction to his question. (Or don't.)
    Again, you must have me confused with someone else.

    Peppers Raji Jones - will be are starting line

    Matthews has been dinged up the last few years, it will be good to have some depth at OLB. Perry can do a lot more than Neal - if the light comes on for him, and I think it will, he will be very good. That said, I actually expect us to add another OLB there in this draft. I think there will be a few that represent BPA in the next few rounds.

    Yeah you're right, I really didn't mean to quote you or anyone for that matter. But I did not see that piece by Wilde, and I still would have taken Clinton Dix over that trade

    Peppers isn't going to play DE.

    If Peppers will be on a snap count, as McCarthy indicated, we're not going to waste him run stuffing in base. Peppers is the nickel edge rush bookend/elephant. Perry will likely be limited to base run support.

    Jones will get his shot at weak side 5 tech in base and 3 tech in nickel...his best shot is 3 tech along side Daniels. I see Boyd - Daniels being the primary 5 tech guys in the base set with Jones playing relief for Daniels.

    I would be fine with spending the compensatory pick in the third round on Smallwood.

    I will believe it when I see it. They have already said he would be playing more of an elephant role. I would bet most of his snaps are at DE with a few at OLB and fewer still at DT.

    I would be fine with the first 3rd going to Smallwood, the second round to Amaro and the comp third to jean baptiste

    I think Smallwood will be there for our compensation pick. I´m fine with either Amaro or Seferian-Jenkins in the second, would rather draft a WR today as well.

    So the Packers should have just replaced players they might lose next year, thereby not IMPROVING over last season? If the Packers simply addressed the potential losses of Cobb or Williams, all we would have done is have a guy on the bench for a year to replace one of them later. A later round pick could do that since they'll have a year to develop.

    Agree^^
    And for the thousandth time, ted has a lot of skill in finding good WRs later in the draft and our two starting outside CBs were undrafted. Casey Hayward was obviously one of the better CBs in his draft if not the best and he wasn't even a first rounder. You're arguing point is gone.

    Bush has one year left on a three-year contract he signed in 2012.

    Thompson hasn´t found a good WR after the third round during his tenure, you´re right about the CBs though.

    He's talking about the first round. I said later in the draft meaning after the first round

    But I would consider Boykin good, also undrafted (after the 3rd round) ;)
