    Not taking anything away from these guys, especially the running back, but like mentioned in the article.. opportunity. Jones is a talent and probably is the exception on the Packers rookies this year.

    Take example.. Harrell.. he is being called a bust because he isn't getting the opportunity with a deep rotation.

    Gotta be on the field to lead in the stats..

    I think our draft picks were amazing... except for the first round, I still think we should've gotten Greg Olsen.

    I haven't given up on Harrell, but its hard to ignore what Olsen has brought to the Bears in the limited action he has seen. He can't block worth a lick but can sure catch the ball!!

    Olsen seemed like a natural pick for what we needed...a pass catching TE. Donald Lee, however, has picked up his game this season and Bubba appears to have regained his old form prior to his injury.

    Calling Harrell a bust already is premature, in my opinion.

    you don't judge a class just based on the first pick.

    Overall, most of the last 3 draft classes have been quite productive, ranging from starters, role players, and special teamers. A couple busts who got the axe, sure, but overall, productive.
