    Most of this is what Ted supporters have been saying for a while...

    17. Green Bay Packers The Pack hit this list at this spot based on a problem of the Mike Sherman era. The team has drafted around the idea of winning one more Super Bowl for Brett Favre before he retired, which has not happened. General manager Ted Thompson has helped reverse some of those trends, but the damage has been done. From 2000 to 2002, the Packers have produced two starters, offensive tackle Chad Clifton and tight end Bubba Franks. Na?il Diggs was a starter prior to his departure in the 2006 off-season, but other than that, role players and busts were the game.
    2003 did bring speedy inside linebacker Nick Barnett, considered a reach by many at the time, and Hunter Hillenmeyer, who unfortunately now starts for division rival Chicago. Wide receiver Javon Walker and defensive end Aaron Kampman were both starters from the 2002 draft, but only Kampmann remains. The 2004 draft mostly just produced a fist fight between top picks Joey Thomas and Ahmad Carroll, with only Carroll still in the NFL, as a reserve for Jacksonville.

    For the Future: The Packers, now realizing Brett Favre is not going to live forever, have moved on and are drafting for the future, and doing an amazing job. So far linebacker AJ Hawk, wide receiver Greg Jennings, safety Nick Collins, linebacker Brady Poppinga and guards Jason Spitz and Daryn Colledge have gained starting roles from the 2005 and 2006 draft classes. Expect Thompson, a draft guru who focuses on pick value, to focus on rebuilding the Packers again in this year?s draft. Too bad he?s playing catch up for Mike Sherman?s errors.
