    What 2007 Draftees Make Roster?

    1 Justin Harrell DT (rotational Player in 2007)
    2 Brandon Jackson RB (Hopefully can carry about 30 to 50 percent of the load at RB this year)
    3 James Jones WR (Will be come a situational player, 3rd downs and Redzone)
    3 Aaron Rouse S (might push for the starter spot or dime back)
    4 Allen Barbre OT (Oline Depth this year.. G/T)
    5 David Clowney WR (If he can't get off jambs in camp, practice squad, if he can will be used to stretch the field with speed.)
    6 Korey Hall ILB (Special teams)
    6 Desmond Bishop ILB (Makes the team, instinctive player, will become a starter someday IMO)
    6 Mason Crosby PK (2007 handles kickoffs) Makes team.
    7 Deshawn Wynn RB Practice Squad or cut
    7 Clark Harris TE CUT ... Practice Squad for sure.

    3 Aaron Rouse S -- Starts at a S spot and doles out concussions
    4 Allen Barbre OT -- Converted to kicker after dropping 5 more pounds lol
    5 David Clowney WR -- ? Depends on strength I hope hes our Berrian
    6 Korey Hall ILB -- ST
    6 Desmond Bishop ILB -- ST
    6 Mason Crosby PK-- Cant beat rayner in Camp, maybe handles KO
    7 Deshawn Wynn RB -- Cut of FB

    I hope that Hall doesn't have to play to much in the base defense, personally I think he is better in coverage than playing in the box.

    I can see where fans would agree with this hopeful assessment. In the end, we all hope Favre sees his remarks happen on the field about the quick mature development of the rookies. It is a big IF.

    Apparently, how both Clowney and James work out is creating very contrasting & interesting reviews by fans.

    I think so. I think Jones was a huge reach. He is going more than likely going to make the team b/c of being a 3rd round draft pick. Let's see if he is still on the team in 2-3 yrs.

    I agree with everything with the exception of Jones, he will be 3rd or 4th, unless KR.

    Jackson will be the featured back before it's all over and Rogers will never see the practice squad. That is in n-e-v-e-r.

    Just being a Packer fan means that I have high hopes for all of them. If push comes to shove, I must admit that Wynn and Harris seem most likely to lose out. But as 7th rndrs. that should be expected. I want Korey Hall to succeed whether at LB or FB. I know it's shallow thinking but in looking at photos of Harrell, I don't see the fire I hoped to see in his eyes. He seems passive. Physically, he has all the tools but so did Hunt. This is one spot(DT) where we desperately need a fire-eater, especially since we don't know what will happen to Corey Williams. I'm a bit disappointed that Manuel is playing with the 1st unit. Obviously it's early but I had hopes for Rouse or somebody else to impress. Of course, the very best thing would be for Manuel to come back strong and healthy. THe new guys could learn at a more relaxed pace and learn w/o hurting the team in games. Jones and Jackson are big ? marks to me. Not enough good stats to go by and they have huge responsibilities. IMO, this draft is full of questionable picks but It will either mark TT as a true visionary or as a poor judge of talent. It's his year to shine or fade. We shall see.

    Harrell - Starter, hope he slows up "ALLDAY"
    Jackson - plays on third and long, mainly catches checkdown plays
    James Jones - #4 WR behind DD, GJ and yes Fergie
    Rouse - Starter allong side collins
    Barbre - Backup G
    Clowney - #5 WR, Returns KO
    Hall - Special Teams
    Bishop - Special Teams
    Crosby - Starter, beats out Rayner in TC
    Wynn - #2 back, beats out jackson
    Harris - Backup - makes roster

    I don't think Jackson has the speed to ever be a featured back
