Adam Czech usually puts together this post on Sunday, but he had other commitments this week, so I'll do my best to pick up the slack. Last Sunday, Adam called into attention the injury woes of the Packers' recent first-round picks. Bryan Bulaga, Derek Sherrod and Nick Perry missed a combined 33 regular-season games last [...]

Or we should just trade the pick for a 2nd rounder and anything else we can get for him. Problem solved!

Definitely, lol. I think the Packers have had good success with 2nd rounders. Nick Collins, Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson are three off the top of my head.

The whole article is sort of like the saying you can make statistics say anything that you want.

Sure all 3 players had season ending injuries last year. (I know Sherrod was the year before.) Sure all 3 of them were 1st round choices. But it is a fluke.
Were the past 3 #1 draft picks in 2010 or 2011 out all year? What about all the non #1 picks that were injured in 2010 and 2012? It is just a coincidence that the players were injured.

News flash- players who are good enough to be on the field have a greater chance of injury than players who fill in part time as role players. First round draft picks tend to be on the field more than 7th round picks therefore have a greater probability of injury.

We are basically adding 4 1st round picks to the team that was in the playoffs last year which is kind of cool. Obviously 1 of those is a rookie and 2 have question marks but that's a pretty big talent influx either way.

I love it when GB is able to land 2 #1 picks. 4 would be awesome. =d>
