    I think there's been a mistake in transcribing this list. The first team defense only has two linebacker positions. Taylor must've picked Hawk as one of his first-team linebackers, because he did not pick him for his second team.

    Hawk only being mentioned on the 2nd team makes no sense.

    Leinert will be a far better quarterback than Young. Hawk will be a better linebacker than Sims. I was interested to see the recognition given the young linemen for Green Bay. That surprised me. But the lack of anyother rookie players from Green Bay on this list is pretty telling. We still need to draft more impact type players and although it appears that our drafts have been solid at least, they havent' been great.

    I think this was a great draft. Hawk should be first team, Jennings is recognized as a very good player already. Two offensive line rookies. Thats four guys, no other team did that.

    Well our first-round pick, two second-round picks, and a third-round pick all made the list, at least on the second team. I think that's pretty darn good.

    Jennings is the player to watch next season, because I think he is as good as he showed in the first half of the season.

    That appaers to be a good team. Jennings probabyl shouldn't have been a first teamer, but since only really Colston played well. Jackson, Holmes, etc struggled. Hawk played very well, but so did Ryans, Sims, etc.
    Nice team though

    It was nice to see Colledge and Spitz on there. They make scout.com all rookie team but some still think they need to be replaced. Funny that this is one of many honors they are likely going to receive. At worse Colledge does 2nd team all rookie and Spitz does 3rd. I wouldn‘t be shocked to see both on the 2nd team this year. Frankly we have our offensive lineman of the future set in stone as long as they get STRONGER. If so they should get better next year. If they slack off then that’s an area of concern again. Though from what I read it looks like they’re going to hit the weights.

    Hawk probably should've received more recognition but he did have a slow start where and Wimbley came out strong and early. None the less is anyone going to doubt A.J. Hawk? He looks like a future Pro Bowl player and was well worth the pick. I thought maybe Vernon Davis as well as some others but nobody can argue against Hawk.

    Jennings started fast and ended slow. None the less he looks like the 2nd best WR in this Draft only to Colston. He does have great hands. Another year in this system and another learning this playbook should really benefit him. West Coast offense is the toughest to learn in the NFL. So I think next year we should expect some solid things out of him. Keep in mind adding a pass catching TE to stretch the field would really open some things up for him.

    Jennings need to improve his route running vastly, especially on option routes where he has to read the defence, if he cant get better at this i think he'll slip to 3rd WR.
