    Mock Draft + Draft Rankings...Other things

    says we are gonna get Dominque Rodgers - Cromartie (4th best CB)

    i think we could really use a cornerback (thats the position i hope we get) anyways hes the fourth ranked corner back... for us to get Mckelvin (rank 1 CB) it would be almost a miracle but i think we might be able to get the 2nd or 3rd ranked one....

    what i was thinking this offseason

    Pickup Chad Johnson & and good rookie CB = SB

    anyway about Chad Johnson everyone saying he's and Ego Whore....those kind of players work hard and the media usually just explodes that stuff into something its not. i think he'd be a good addition.

    Hm... interesting. And he's Antonio Cromartie's cousin! If we draft him, he better have the same athleticism and speed.

    Some tall WRs in the first round. I wouldnt mind a CB either.




    also, my guess is by the 6th

    From what I saw during the Senior Bowl game and practices, he does. He's really skinny, but with Harris and Woodson still on the team, he'd have time to beef up a bit.

    It is so hard to know who is still going to be available by the time they get to GB's spot in the draft it is hard for me to get very excited.

    If there is a good CB great. If there is a big lineman super. If they go the BPA route that is fine with me too.
    No matter who they get I doubt that they will be in the starting lineup in 08.

    As of now I do not think all the underclassmen have announced their intentions of entering the draft early so that changes things as well.

    Not so much as a dream, as a nightmare. I think were fine with Favre and Rodgers for now (unless Brett quits). We should take a CB with our 1st.

    I also believe we need a CB in the first round.

    Would take O-Line help or a TE in the second round.

    I have been a Rogers-Cromartie fan for months so I believe he would be a superior addition to the Packers! I do not believe that Johnson would be a good fit!

    Chad has excellent receiving skills but what seperates the good from the great is that in todays NFL -receivers have to see what the QB see's in order for the passing attack to be as effective as a Championship team needs to be. I saw several examples this season where Palmer has a pick or the ball goes 180 from where Chad was and he is yelling at him and drawing across his chest so I don't need another Bill Schroeder even if he has more talent than Billy Short Arms.

    DRC just has way too much hype around him now and its all justified but usually hyped prospects end up at teams that suck at drafting, dont be surprised if some shmucj team like the Bengals reach loads for him

    :x You should be praying that TT doesn't do another Harrell draft. GB's WR's are good; need guards, cb's, and Te's in that order.

    Maybe Ryan Clady (OT) will still be there...another Boise State alum. While Colledge hasnt done much, I think Korey Hall was a stellar pick and has done amazingly well considering he was a LB who converted to FB.

    Agreed in our needs. We don't need a WR. That would be a waste.

    Gregorious will be a Pro Bowler next year. Donald Driver will have his 1000+ yards, most of which hard-gained and well-earned. K-Rob is solid and JJ will eventually replace Driver. I don't see why anyone thinks we need another WR.

    I also would like depth at the OT position and maybe another LB (unless MM believes in Hodge). If we draft a QB, that means MM doesn't believe in Nall. I'm saying MM because I'm sure MM and TT communicate their needs well.

    Wasn't "The Harrell Draft" also the "James Jones, Mason Crosby, Aaron Rouse, and DeShawn Wynn Draft?"

    More than just 1 round guys. Also, I am in LOVE with our RB situation. Jackson improved over the years(yet overall a disappointment), Grant came out of nowhere, but people seem to be forgetting about DeShawn "Fatboy" Wynn. He was Grant before Grant was Grant.

    Grant\Wynn in 2008, with Jackson spelling them is going to be AWESOME!

    You'd love our RB situation even more if Steve Slaton became a Packer.

    Even though Grant is a stud and Jackson is gonna get better, you can never have too many RB's. Ask the Tiki Barber-less NY Giants.

    Although I don't think we'll spend a pick on a halfback, Slaton would certainly add another wrinkle to our offense. Not only is he used to running in a ZBS, but since WVU ran a spread, he's capable of running out of shotgun formations, which would make our offense even more dangerous. While I like the full house formation we currently run out of, it tips the play when we go from that to the spread. Whereas a guy like Slaton would allow us to possibly be more like the Patriots, with Maroney being able to gain yards running outta the shotgun.

    All this stuff I'm learning about the upcoming draft and the players is great. Keep it coming guys. It gives me something to look forward to during the off season.

    I'm hearing good things about CB Patrick Lee: good size, speed, and in the Senior Bowl practices he did a solid job in press coverage.
