    a Top 3 or 4 pick in the following year's draft?

    Would youn pick a defensive star?
    a Running back incase Ahman's gone?
    another QB just incase?
    a WR to add to the mix so we don't have the problem we had this year?
    Another Punter?

    Any thoughts?

    I would go for a run-stopping DE with some speed. KGB is now a liability againest the run. Good RBs and even good LBers will be available in the 2nd. I know the 4th pick in the draft isn't the greatest this year, but if possible, I'd still trade down. We need more picks.

    a top pick meaning...

    1 or 2...we're in line for reggie bush or matt leinart
    commentary: if we're in position to draft reggie bush i consider it, HOWEVER, if we're in position to draft matt leinart, i say trade down and get a nice package of draft picks, there's deep talent out there, the early picks we have will help us in the long run

    #3 overall...we could still trade down, as teams could line up to select virginia OT d'brickshaw ferguson, regarded as one of the best tackle prospects in years...we could select d'brick as a way to replace 'false start' clifton, but we have other needs

    trade down a couple spots, best scenario we get #7-10 (and also perhaps an extra 2nd or 3rd round pick, maybe other late rounders) and select Oregon DT Haloti Ngata--6'6 330, very quick in pursuit, could be the disruptive force vs. pass AND run that we don't have

    second round picks...if we're lucky enough to get a shot at lendale white early in the 2nd...there is a depth of linebackers available...we might get a shot at abdul hodge, chad greenway or d'qwell jackson...we could solidify the corner position, guys like miami's devin hester and BC's will blackmon are ranked in the 30s right now...guys look at the talent available, do you now see why i want to trade down and perhaps get another early 2nd round pick

    i think 3rd or 4th round pick should be spent on a reciever...next year we will have a formidable 4...walker, murphy, driver, chatman (ferguson ehh)...but yes, another one should be brought in to solidify the depth chart, maybe a punt return specialist, maybe use our early 2nd on santonio holmes or sinorice moss if available, but its too early to tell

    EDIT: just an idea, pick a tight end 2nd-4th rounds bubba franks is a legit target but only within ten yards of the line of scrimmage, perhaps a tight end with a step to stretch the defense...or definitely look 5th-7th round for a solid blocking tight end, something we haven't had since jeff thomason, TT likes the role players, i like the odds of us getting a blocking TE for running downs, and getting ben steele outta here

    If Reggie Bush is available, I'd take him without hesitation. I live on the west coast, so I get to see a lot of USC games. I'm a football coach and a huge football fan. I have never in my life seen anyone at any level as good as he is and dominate a game the way he does.

    If Reggie Bush is not available, I'd trade down if we can get a good package of draft picks in return. I wouldn't even think about Lienart. First off, we have Rogers. 2nd, I think Lienart is overrated and I DON'T think he will be a huge star in this league (again, I've seen a lot of USC games.) If we were interested in a QB with a later round pick, if Kellen Clemens (University of Oregon) is still around in say the 3rd round, I'd take him for some insurance. I believe Clemens is the most underrated QB in college football. I've seen him play since his sophmore year of high school, and he is a fierce competitor, and a special talent.

    Reggie Bush looks like he is the real deal.

    Reggie Bush no question about it.....

    If not I will trade to get a nice set of picks, no question.

    If I could get another OC I will get it no question...

    But this is pointless as I am not TT, no question..

    Gale Sayers viewed some highlights from Reggie Bush and Sayers said Bush has that instinct that he, barry sanders both had. (he named others but seriously after barry who else matters? :) )

    If Bush is available, take him.
    If not, trade down for more picks.
    We desperately need a legitamate middle line backer, d-lineman, Guard and conerback.
    A receiver who could be a returnman is also on my wish list.
    I really don't believe Bush will be available when we draft because the Pack ain't done yet.
    GO PACK GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Nick Barnett is 5th in tackles, not bad for a illegimate MLB
    CB I agree completely! We need like three of them. 1 to start opposite Harris, 1 for nickel and 1 for dime.

    OK, if Packers had the #4 or #5 pick, would you trade UP to get Bush?

    right now we're looking at at least a top 10 pick and possibly a top 5 pick. Bush will be gone, but the time we draft. I'd like us to get defensive help, preferably a linebacker like AJ Hawk or Chad Greenway or a defensive end like Mathieus Kiwanuka, Mario Williams, or Tamba Hali.

    No, I would not trade up because more than likely that would mean giving up picks.

    I agree, A.J. Hawk is at stud!!! He could become legendary in Green Bay. Plus it is always good to have a few Buckeye Ulumni playing in Green and Gold.

    There are 3 really good ones playing at O.S.U. right now hopefully we will be in position to get one of them.

    AJ hawk is going to be great in the NFL, but I don't think he's in our best interest...
    -we have two solid linebackers in Thomas and Barnett...however, Nick Barnett, I don't think he's a natural middle linebacker...there is such a depth of linebackers in this draft that we'll be able to pick a good one in the 30's...especially a good middle linebacker so we can finally move barnett to weakside...either Iowa's Abdul Hodge or Maryland's D'qwell Jackson...HOWEVER if AJ Hawk shows at the combine he has the necessary skills to play middle LB, he is certainly worth a top ten pick, it's just that Hawk is a little small...Penn State's Paul Posluszny could be added to this discussion, frankly I hope not and I hope he stays another year in school

    I still think the best bet for us with our top ten pick is Oregon DT Haloti Ngata, he looks to be a supreme disruptive force on the d-line...I know how much everyone on the board appreciates the contributions of Colin Cole and Cullen Jenkins, they get the job done, but Ngata can simply cause chaos

    and yes I'm for drafting defense with our first two draft picks
