... if Ted Thompson decided to draft it in the first round?

In another thread QChuskerfan posed the question of which position is the most in need of upgrading.

That made me think of another question? Is there any position that Ted Thompson could draft at #26 that would absolutely drive you mad. Eliminate the obvious punter and place kicker (although after Crosby's performance I'm guessing there would be a few people who wouldn't mind that.) Also, since there is no Andrew Luck or RGIII available this year and we have the best QB in the league I would think QB would also be obvious. Other than that I can't think of a position that would truly make me question TTs sanity if the right guy fell. Some people say never take a RB in the first round but if some like a Trent Richardson fell to you at 26 would you take him? I understand there is probably no one like that this year so I would say RB would be my second choice. I'm not talking about taking a guy at a position who is rated as a low first round pick either, I'm talking about if the top guy or couple of guys at any given position on everyones board fell would you be upset if Ted Thompson took him?

Hopefully I made myself clear. My thoughts are that if the right guy fell (and I don't follow college football so I don't know who these guys would be) the only positions that would make no sense to me would be QB, punter and kicker. For any other position, if the right guy fell I feel we could use the upgrade.

K or P ... either would piss me off.

Aside from that, no position. Some will say QB, but how many teams have an elite QB? Are there any prospects that could be elite? Who knows, Tom Brady was drafted 6th round. That said, I'd rather them get help for NOW, not for more picks in the future. So, QB would be 3rd on my 'wtf' list.

spending a 1 for OT might but one of those questionable selections. Of course that would mean there are issues with Sherrod or Bulaga.
TE in the first would be a real shock.
next would be RB.
I would like to see them draft a C but I prefer getting one on Day 2.
with 3-4 pretty good CB taking another in the 1st would be a surprise.

Tough to comment on the WR and TE position right now, Jennings is all but gone, so if a WR was best player on the board at 26 it wouldn't bother me too much.

Finley still a big ?, I have seen where there are a couple of TE's that are predicted to go in 1st rnd, again if Finley is gone I wouldn't have a problem with Ted going after a TE.

A miracle happens and both Jennings and Finley come back, then WR and TE would be the 2 positions that would be on my "wtf" list.

OG would be right up there also.

WR or TE. Either one we won't benefit from. Even if Finley leaves is it really worth it to get a TE in the first round? We got 3 reliable WRs in Nelson Jones and Cobb. We can get a guy later in the draft to fill that need. I understand everyone wouldn't mind a WR because Jennings leaving but think about it, we'll have the same problems as last year. Not getting pressure on the QB, not protecting the QB, etc. I'm pretty sure the Pack will go for the best value on defense. I just don't see any reason to get a skill position unless it's running back.

I can only think of three spots in this particular draft that would piss me off..

1. QB - This is a weak QB draft...

2. P - We are set and in no draft should a non football player be picked in the first round. [grin1]

3. K - See #2.

After that.. one could make an argument for just about any other position.. so BPA should rule.

Got to laugh, JSonline just come out with their new mock draft, they have The Packers taking an OG.

The one position I had on my list after WR and TE.

It's on JS!!!!! We'll see who knows more about drafting!!!!

Good question. I'm like most and don't think there is anything that would upset me in the first round.

I think that's because most of us can't identify a glaring weakness. Lots of needs, yes. But nothing like last year.

Assuming Finley sticks around it would be TE. I mean, doesn't the average NFL team usually only carry 3 on their roster while this team has had 5 the past two years? I've seen mock drafts say GB needs a TE in order to get better production out of this position. No, we need to actually use the ones on the roster a little more besides using them in obvious run situations. We gripe about not having a short passing game and isn't that what TEs are good for?

You're just like Gunny, don't know shit from shinola. [grin1]

I'd rather we took a legitimate center than a guard, but interior run blocker is a must.

Would anybody give up our #1 for Revis and the Jets 3rd?

Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin

Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.

Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
