The problem with getting all these picks, even if he trades up, is there is no place on the roster for them. Any player taken is going to be a project, young potential, and that young potential is only going to replace young potential that was taken in the late rounds a short while ago. these picks are attempts at improving the depth by replacing the bottom of the depth chart and that is not what we need. We need to improve the team by getting players that can be inserted at the top or middle and improve the depth from the top, not the bottom.

This is what will keep the Packers a competitive team, but quite possibly will prevent us from becoming a great team.

Except the Packers have a depth problem. They aren't that deep and I would go as far to say they aren't as good as people think. I'm very, very worried about the team this season. I think they're vulnerable. I like the approach Ted Thompson took by acquiring extra picks. They have to get deeper.


That depends on how you identify depth.

I asume that you're aming for a lack of quality, then, whcih might be true. But all these players that make for the depth problem you're talking about, are players we found in those later rounds. 6th and 7th rounders are a huge gamble and, usually, huge projects. The chances of drafting someone there who will give you that depth that we're looking for is a longshot.

That said, I'm not as bummed as everyone here seems to be. This draft especially, there's not that huge a drop-off between the end of round 3 and round 4. There's some good talent left and we already made two amazing picks in the first two rounds. If there was ever a draft to trade back, it's this one, a draft that was very shallow at the top and very heavy at the bottom.

A shame though that, like PWFT said, there's no real room on the roster for 5 6th and 7th rounders, plus UDFAs.

The Packers are in the pole position to deal with teams at the top of each round today that need more picks and allows Ted to cherry pick players they want.

It's been pointed out that not many good players come out of these last rounds. Well, how many years has there been A) a deep draft, and B) Ted is sitting there with 10 picks?

Are the odds not way better today than sitting at the bottom of these last 4 rounds that Ted will swoop in and grab a few players that will make the team better?

Sit back and enjoy this. It's going to be fun.

never said there were not player still out there. I simply said stocking up on 6th and 7th rounds picks will be a waste over the long term. one 3 > three 7s

Yet we have 2 4's and 3 5's we can trade all our 6 and 7s to get 5s maybe even 4s. I don't mind what they're doing. Now if they trade back again. That....that would be pointless.

The late round picks enable Ted to go after "undrafted free agent" type guys, without having to compete with all the other teams. He can just take them with 7th's.
