    You can bet this kid isn't going to have any problems with motivation to do well.

    He’ll be a guard in the NFL, usually can’t go wrong with OL from Wisconsin but I think he will need to up his game to stick in the NFL

    I love this pick at this point in the draft. Not just because he is a Badger, but because I think this kid has some potential to be a solid G in the NFL. Much like every late round pick, this may be Boom, bust or backup.

    The kid should jog back and forth to work. Dude could bank practically his entire paycheck for 4 years.

    Boom, bust or backup is literally every pick no?

    I should have quantified that with the time element. These late round guys typically are only given a small window to do one of those 3 things. Versus guys that seem to stick longer due to their perceived draft value.

    A Green Bay, WI native who played OT for the Badgers, but will likely move inside for the Packers. Hits the agility thresholds that have been so good to Green Bay over the years.

    You couldn't make up a better story.

    Van Lanen with Dietzen in the fold that could really work well for this team. I love that we addressed the absences on the O-Line.

    Maybe Aaron continues to make a immature child of himself, he retires, we sign Alex Smith out of retirement and in his presser Alex says “I plan on proving why I was picked first”

    Packers proceed to go undefeated and win the Super Bowl....

    If Aaron isn't in a Packer uniform ever again, for the reasons we are hearing (not proven yet) Amari Rodgers should get #12. Also, no way do I ever want to see that jersey retired, unless it's for Amari in 20 years.
