An interesting discussion about the Packers draft and develop philosophy broke out in the comments section of this post the other day. The basic question that came out of the discussion was this: What does draft and develop mean to you? Draft and develop might mean different things to different people. The various meanings appear [...]

It means it is an excuse to not sign quality FAs to round out the team and fill in holes that normally occur in the roster.

It means you trust that you drafted quality players who will still become good football players even if they don't make a huge impact in the first year or two.

To me it keeps the philosophy that if you work hard and stay loyal the team will reward you. I do think that this philosophy works for the most part in that it makes for greater morale from the players that the team is not always looking for FAs to take your job.

This and it also means you have a viable team for the long term, because you don't subject yourself to cap hell.

A way to build and maintain a core of players. Hopefully successfully which keeps a team in contention year after year. Combine it with smart and well timed FA and some luck and we can win another SB.

I don't like how strict this philosophy is. It means there is more pressure put on young, inexperienced players to fill important gaps in our roster, and the "need" factor then becomes more in play on draft day. At least, it seems that way.

Will we pass on a top WR to fill a DL need this draft in R1? Maybe. Maybe not. Nab that WR and your DL need is still unaddressed going into the 2nd day of the draft. Now, you maybe reach on a day two player to fill a hole, hoping he will not only start, but be a difference maker, where you really need one.

There is risk with this philosophy that could make us miss out on top talent, both in FA and in the draft.

Hopefully this is not true. In a couple of cases, I'm sorry to say, I believe it has been. I like building on the draft as a basic philosiphy, but all avenues need to be used to build/better the team.

I was being just a bit of a smart @ss. But there are times when it seems like the team fails to use every method available to them because they are a "draft and develop" team.

It is really impossible to have every spot on the roster filled with depth backing up all the starters. Sometimes it is better to have the drafted players backing up and one day taking the place of a UFA that they signed.

Then again I have wondered if GB is content with winning the division and being in the playoffs on a consistent basis or spending more money and being a serious contender for a SB.

I could live with a team that was in the SB every 5 years and then had to tear the team down and rebuilt making it back 5 years later over a team that went 11-5 or 10-6 every single year, year after year, only to lose in the playoffs in either round 1 or 2.
