    I say yes, that DL is a monster up front and is maybe one of the most athletic that I have seen in a while. His kind of push up the middle would give our linebackers a free range to practically cover any amount of field they wanted to, and he would force double teams on himself. Really think Dom should consider making moves to get him depending on where his projected draft status is slated to be.

    Oh, in case you're not sure who I'm talking about, it's this guy.

    Williams will be a top 5 pick, probably top 2-3 pick. If we're picking somewhere in the 20's as I would think we hope/expect to, it would take a significant trade offer to move up that much.

    I don't like the thought of not having a 1st round pick again until 2018, even for a guy like Williams. We have other positions that need attention.

    The simple answer is no. What pick will the Packers have? As adambr2 suggests, what would it take to trade up to get him? What significant long-term injuries will the Packers have to address at the end of the season?

    No. As it stands now, definitely won't be available for our pick, and we'd have to give up the farm to move up that high. Emphatic no. Let's just take our slipped BPA or Denzel Perrman and be happy with it at whatever position we end up in.

    Free Agents, significant injuries, returning players, and positions of need all make it impossible for us to talk meaningfully about drafting a guy who is arguably at this point the #1 defensive player in college football.

    We need a good ILB more than we need a DL. Not to mention an OL, preferably a tackle. All positions of need.
