    Well honestly, I think the Pack are sold on turning Hyde into the FS... I don't know if they are sold on anyone else in particular for the SS role. So if Hyde can turn into the ballhawk like he has the ability to do, why not get someone mean in the secondary?

    Yes, Bucannon can definitely "tune guys up". I live in Washington I have watched him play a lot. He was really the only shining star on a horrible defense and it's hard to get any pub playing in Pullman. Bucannon definitely plays mean. The problem is the Burnett contract. I think your right on with Hyde because TT did not look to sign anyone at safety in free agency. I thought he would at least make a stab at Chris Clemons. They must feel real good about Hyde and I think he is a great football player. McCarthy appears to be real high on him being out there more. The good news on Bucannon is Packers scouts were one of six teams at WSU pro day.

    As I've mentioned in another thread if a team has interchangeable safeties that means none of them are a great fit at either position.

    So in this team equation I don't see mike Neal and I'm pretty sure Hyde will convert to more of a safety role than cornerback.

    Here's an alternative to your 2nd take Amish:

    Round 1: CJ Mosley, ILB
    Round 2: Ra'shede Hagemen, DT (Packers trade up, #53 and #85 picks)
    Round 3 Comp pick: Donte Moncrief, WR
    Round 4: CJ Fiedorwicz, TE
    Round 5: Terence Brooks, S

    Rationale: Everybody's looking to trade down, which means our chances of trading our #1 for an early #2 and #3 picks are low, so why not go the other way?

    Hageman's stock has been dropping, but the guy's a freak. Many now see him dropping down into the 2nd round. I know, flashbacks of Jerel Worthy, but Hageman is more physically gifted than Worthy by a long shot. Trading up and nabbing him early in the 2nd would be worth it, even if it means giving up our #3 to get him. Having Hageman develop behind Julius Peppers for a year might be what it takes to make him a real stud.

    Moncrief may not be there by the end of round 3, but there's a shot.

    Interesting take. IMO, attitudes change on draft. I think that a fair number of GM's are like little kids on Christmas eve day. It eats them to see guys dropping off their draft board. They get desperate and stupid. Ted needs to hang around, be patient and capitalize when stupid rears it's head. Draft days were made for men like Ted Thompson.
    We could easily end up with 6-7 top 100 players, maybe 8-9 in top 150. A third will probably never fulfill expectations. A fourth will probably exceed expectations. The remaining will probably make expected contributions to another world championship.

    I believe.

    Looks very good to me. I don't know about Hagemann, though. He is so impressive physically, but his play does not match. He has a very high bust potential - I think we should avoid him.

    Yep. A early post pointed out my omission. Neal will certainly make the team, and I have Hyde down both at safety and at CB.

    Yeah well right now it looks like "Claymaker" is the last 1st round pick that has lived up to draft position in first round, other then a couple years by Raji. Hopefully this year he comes away with either Mosley or Pryor and doesn't reach for a guy like Ra'shede Hageman.
