receivers traditionally last longer in the first round than dlineman....
True, and it has seemed like 1sr round WRs have either been elite or bust, not much in between.... where 2nd rounders have had done better on average with less busts (less elite too, but still good).
1.) Tight end
3.) Wide receiver
4.) Defensive tackle
Resign Bulaga, sign a few free agents with all that extra money.
I think the Packers are going to think of TE as less of a need than Fans because of the 3rd rounder showed some Sparks I potential at times.
I have starter CB at the top of the list for defense, because it's the most important position and because the CBs couldn't hold up in man coverage, meaning the Safeties had to stay back and help...
Better coverage would free up the Safeties to blitz or help in the run defense, or cover for the ILB which helps free them up more.
5. OL - Another Elgton Jenkins type player in the 2nd/3rd round would be nice.
My preference would be a stud DL, but that would most likely cost the farm in choices. We should be able to get 2 and if we're lucky 3 players who can contribute if we draft well. Of course, nothing's certain as evidenced by our 12th pick last year.
Except we need an OT, not OG... (well yeah OG too, but we got younger options there, at OT there is no depth after the vets.
Yeah a stud DT could make that pass rush elite, which is why I was so disappointed with releasing Daniels, but he was banged up this year, so might have been a good move.
Why not trade up?
Too many problem areas, not enough picks as it is!
