When the standard was Nick Collins, it's probably hard for Packers GM Ted Thompson not to be picky about who is going to play safety for him.

They will pick up someone in the draft this year that fills the need.

I am sure Ted Thompson will draft someone that was injury prone in college and wonder how come he never gets on the field in the pros.

So the standard is average play for 3 years before coming into their own year 4. That would put burnett right on schedule. His play in his position has been no worse than Nick's. If people would look back, there was talk his 3rd year, and going into 4th that he might not be the answer and should look for other options. There was debate on who was going to become the better safety, Rouse or Collins.

Expectations need to be realistic.

With Jerron McMillian and M.D. Jennings on the roster as young projects, a 3rd - 7th rounder wouldn't really help us fill any gaps, though, so you'd have to draft on very early on.

Apart from Vaccaro, Elam, Rambo and maybe Cyprien, I don't think that any safety in this draft class would immediatly fill that void. And all of those guys would mean using our first rounder or trading up in the 2nd. Rambo, of course, being the exception to that, most likely, but he has some character concerns.

That said, this is one heck of a safety class. I think that, if you feel like McMillian can step in for a year, you could get quite a project and an eventual starter a bit later on with a player like Tony Jefferson (if you don't look into his combine too much), Josh Evans or Earl Wolff.

You don't like TJ McDonald?
Quote:

McDonald has the flexibility to play strong or free safety. He has good instincts and is a hard hitter, too. If the senior has another good season, he could be a first-round pick. McDonald would immediately fit well in any NFL zone scheme since he been coached up by Monte Kiffin on the scheme he ran in Tampa Bay for many years.

3/9/13: McDonald notched 112 tackles, 6.5 tackles for a loss, three passes broken up and two interceptions in 2012. He was a physical enforcer for the Trojans' defense. McDonald had impressive days against Stanford and Utah, but struggled versus Oregon. He put on a quality showing at the Senior Bowl. McDonald was okay at the Combine. He looks like a straight-line safety for the NFL.


He will probably go in the 2nd or 3rd.

As you mentioned there are quality players throughout the whole draft.

Safety Class
Early-round talent: A
Mid-round: A
Late-round: A-
Overall grade: A



I certainly don't want a S in the 7th round and expect him to contribute this year or even next year.
It is really hard to predict who is going to be available in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th rounds.
