Well, according to the draft for the Packers.. they didn't feel it was the weakest link either. Now, young bucks.. step up and prove that correct.

At this point, much remains to be seen.

I wouldn't say it was the weakest. I don't think they were as bad last year as the perception of them was. The thing that stands out to me is Burnett leading the team in tackles when he's a good but not really bigtime stand out tackler. That speaks to me of issues more up front. Unless your starting S is some kind of stud enforcer he shouldn't be leading your team in tackles let alone being top 17 in the entire league.

Ahhh, this speaks volumes. We were enormously deficient up front, taxing our secondary. Add to the fact they have McMillian, and kept Sean Richardson on the roster from last years draft/UDFA and I think we may be better than many may think at S.

Add the years in development for a player like MD Jennings... like McMillian starting year 2... like Richardson, who didn't get to see much of the field, but was in the Packers program for a solid year... then Burnett? There are a number of players at the S positions who could turn some heads this season, already on the roster.

By that logic we were weaker at WR than S which we all know is total crap.

I think there is a huge risk with the current line-up especially if injuries happen. Not to say that a draft pick would have improved it drastically, but I still think these guys either step up or it will be our #1 pick next year.

Actually there is.. not that we are weaker at safety, but that we have a couple of decisions to make in the near future (Jones & Nelson), Boykins coming off a knee. We all know that we like to spread the field at times (hopefully less this coming season).. so we really need to be 5 deep at WR that can play. Right now we have 3.. we are looking for 2 more. So yes, there was need there.. but they addressed it late.

At safety we have Burnett whom should be coming into his own this season.. and a couple of young guys that played better than some seem to think. Did they get exposed at times.. yes.. but not as much as our front seven did. Or our offensive line at times. And all these guys are young.. with a sky full of potential.

Starks can't stay on the field it seems like.. and Green might never be as explosive as he was before the knee in 2011.

I am not saying we don't expose ourselves to risk with the safeties that we currently have, but I don't think that risk is as large as not fixing and adding physicality to both sides of the line.

And for the record.. the origins of this thread were early.. and the Packers passed a couple of times on the safety position. They in turn then passed 10 more times after the 2nd round with a pretty decent class of safeties coming out. That speaks volumes.

It also is about not only building the team for 2013 but building it for 2014, 2015 and 2016. Where we can control the contracts of our young players. At safety we have three young players, two of which really got thrown into the fire with Woodson going down.. but experience is a premium.

I firmly believe that McMillian will become the second half of the starting combo by the time we break camp.. and if Richardson can come back.. he will couple with Jennings to become a strong pair.

Some of the undrafties look promising at Saftey. Ben Ericksen might make a big impact on this team this coming summer. That kid has good size and instincts that might even push for the starting job at FS which we're incredibly thin at. But i'm not gonna weigh only hope one of the Undrafted S's shine. I hope we can make some type of trade or something in Free Agency to help that position.

I'm going off of this for Free Agency but Kerry Rhodes and Quintin Mikell are still unsigned. Proven Vets.. Even Charlie Peprah is out there lol. http://www.nfl.com/freeagency
