    It's tough call.

    Our options in the first round:

    1. CB: Harris and Woodson aren't getting any younger. No solid nickel has emerged yet.
    Pick: Aqib Talib, Kansas

    2. TE: Lee is a stud, but there is no guarantee Franks will be back next year with his contract.
    Pick: Fred Davis, USC

    3. OLB: Poppinga has been okay, but nothing to write home about.
    Pick: Keith Rivers, USC

    4. KR: Everyone wants the next Devin Hester.
    Pick: Felix Jones, Arkansas

    Knowing TT, he'll pick someone no one expects and we'll all gripe until that player becomes a stud....

    we need to take a CB round 1 for depth behind Harris and Woodson because there both getting old and a young guy could learn alot from them and thats our biggest need.

    Jack Ikegwuonu, CB, Wisconsin Round 1

    or any other CB that may be better who falls to use but I got to go with the Wisconsin guy.

    I love Jack, but he's not a 1st rounder.

    I'm willing to wager that Talib won't be there by the time Green Bay picks. Thompson isn't really the guy that trades up - maybe he's found some young guy already on an NFL squad to pluck.

    Talib would be a bad pick - he's selfish and wouldnt be a good Packer.

    I reckon we should pick Dan Connor, thatd be bad ***!

    Talib would be an awesome pick. He kicks ***. Either him or Antoine Cason.

    CB - Very deep draft for CB's.. we can probably still get a playmaker in the 2nd round unless there is a steal at #30.

    DE - If we could get someone that TT/MM REALLY like in the first, I could see it happening. Get a great player at RDE and we have an amazing line.

    OT - Clifton can't have more than a year or two left. I don't know what we have in Barbre yet.

    RB - It's a deep draft for RB and TC competition is always good.

    OLB - Don't get me wrong, I'm a Poppinga fan. But we have a surplus of MLB's and not much depth at all at OLB.

    TE - Depth behind Lee.

    I see the Packer's Needs as:

    CB
    OG/OT
    OLB
    TE
    DE
    Maybe DT if they trade one of the current crop.
