    Actually taking a C in the 1st round would be kinda crazy. If I could pick a player for the D line it would be Poe from Memphis. That man is a beast!Nick Perry would be nice as well.

    I am in full belief that the Packers need to add defensive players in the worst way. The Packers can upgrade the defensive line, outside linebacker and safety. I have a horrible feeling that Nick Collins is not coming back. Konz doesn't help any of these positions become better.

    The 1st 2 rds. draft for defense. 3rd round RB 4th rd OT or vise versa for rds 3-4. Rds 5+ as they see fit. I really hope they draft someone that Woodson can teach & train. Some how I feel that 2013 at the latest will be Woodsons last year.

    Players have been known for taking less money if they really believe the team can win a SB. Jeff could have 2 rings. Totally Awesome! 2 SBs in 3 yrs. I can deal w/ that.

    The problem with drafting anybody is that they won't play for a year. Draft and develop teams have too look at next year's signings to figure out future needs and pre-empt them. Yeah, it kinda sucks, but so far I can't argue with the results (just the picks. 2 te, TT, REALLY!?!?)

    That's not true. Look at last years draft where guys like Aldon Smith, Von Miller, JJ Watt, Ryan Kerrigan and Brooks Reed all had immediate impacts. The Packers can definitely find an immediate impact rookie in the draft.

    I'm not saying that they CAN'T make an immediate impact, I'm saying they WON'T because MM won't PLAY them unless his back is up against the wall (see Sherrod, So'oto, House). Should we draft Konz in the first round, he won't play unless Dietrich-Smith (who would start, mark my words) got hurt, and, regardless of how well he did, the minute Dietrich-Smith recovered, Konz would be on the bench again. "DRAFT AND DEVELOP NOT DRAFT AND PLAY" -Vic Ketchman. The Packers have two rules about building a team: Don't sign a free agent, and don't play the rookie his first year. Its just the way we is.

    Since Ted Thompson became the GM: Nick Collins was drafted in the second round and started all 16 regular season games as a rookie.

    From Kevin Seifert NFC North blogger

    It's official. RT: @AdamSchefter: And now, former Colts C Jeff Saturday officially has agreed to a deal with the Green Bay Packers.

    Should be a sufficient stop gap until we can bring in a young guy to groom for the future. Hopefully its a reasonable contract

    Great news. Thompson has said in the past that UFA can be useful to fill immediate needs and that is what this does. Saturday has more experience in making line calls in the no huddle than any other OC in the NFL. Rodgers has to be relieved and Lang and Sitton don’t have to worry about schooling a new OC. I expect Thompson to use a mid round choice on an OC – maybe a comp pick – and now they have time to address the long-term answer at OC.

    I like the signing. Although, I really have no clue how well the guy has played the past couple of seasons. I'm assuming he'll be decent at worst. I still wouldn't be surprised to see us draft Konz if he falls to 28.

    At last TT can concentrate on the defense in the early rounds of the draft now. Plus having Saturday's experience around the place can't hurt the likes of EDS..

    here is a video of Saturday mic'd up and the kind of leadership he brings, very excited about this signing because we need someone this talkative and with this much experience on the o-line

    I'm surprised Ted signed an aging vet, he always went younger except for Woodson and maybe one or two others. Good move, he should be able to fill in nicely while his replacement gets trained...
