We see several folks constantly whine "Ted draft OL!!", and I've been saying (along with others) that it's not the need to draft OL that is where attention needs to be sought ... it's at the COACHING the drafted players! I used to be in the camp that Ted can't draft OL. That changed a couple years ago to the Packers can't COACH OL players anymore. You just can't miss THAT many times.

Pack93z knows OL way better than I do.

But I stand by what I said in another thread - Ted Thompson is off the hook. He's done his job. He's drafted OL.

First of all, Mike was asking for "smaller, quicker" guys.

So that's what Ted got him.

For the past few years, Mike's relented to asking for "bigger, stronger" guys. Since then, Ted's looked much better, because a higher percentage of those guys have worked out. We've got some guys out with injury, but they are in the pipeline. We've also got sufficient depth (not to jinx us) that we are still in the race.

But yes, I think we could do better than Campen.

Right now it behooves our QB to get the ball out in under 8 seconds.

Sustain the long drive. Aaron Rodgers did a great job last week against the Vikings by staying patient and decisive underneath a two-safety shell. Rodgers finished 27 of 35 and made the throws necessary to string together a game-clinching 11-minute drive. On the 18-play drive, Rodgers converted a trio of third downs. Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham, who didn't blitz at all against the Packers a few weeks ago, will try to test Rodgers' patience again.

just look at when they drafted most of the players. Until Sherrod & Bulaga the only players they took above the 4th round came in 2006. It is hard to build a quality line when you are constantly using leftover spare parts. Even the best coaches will have problems developing a Pro Bowl player if they have nothing to work with.

Once Sherrod & Bulaga come back from their injuries (in 2013) the tackle positions will be solid. Lang and Sitton will do fine at G and then all they need to do is to find a quality center.

I'll say this.

If Barclay and Van Roten turn out to be players, that will make Campen look pretty good.

I think the problem has more to do with injuries than anything. Sherrod had his bones in the lower leg snapped. Now that's a two year injury and very freaky to the say the least. But not to draft a center when you let Wells walk is a mistake. It would have cost Casey Hayward to get one of the better centers in the draft though. So then you're at the opportunity cost thing.

I can understand the Packers wanting to take a shot with Saturday. EDS as his backup and drafting someone next year that would take Saturday's place in 2014. They were wrong but they didn't know that in April.

Saturday hasn't been great, but I wouldn't say he's completely shit himself.

He's a stopgap.

I read in a few places that the Packers are grooming their eventual Center. Who that is? No idea.

exactly.

I don't think most teams look for "great" when they pick up a center. solid, consistent and steady are the terms that come to mind when looking for a center.
That and intelligent which is what many said of Saturday.

For some reason they like EDS, but I think they can upgrade.

I think I might have said this a couple thousand times already.. our problem is not the talent. It falls on coaching.

Not quite sure, but Sherman might want another shot in the NFL.
