that mean 11 guys? geez

as far as positions - really got no qualms about anything (maybe about the corner - but we always seem to need a decent corner).

I bet we score at least a B+ with our picks (according to the raters) I'm thinking A-

I personally like all our picks - 2 OLBers for competition or even a starting job, a NT and a DE for depth and 2 Oline guys so help secure our money man ... and best of all 2 of the best backs in the draft ... actually be anxious to see what our run game will look like this year.

I think a lot of people are going think we reached a bit for the two O- linemen and many may question the wisdom of taking two RBs, even if they are the two best in the draft, and two WRs. I'm thinking a B or even B- might be more likely. That's not what I would grade them at personally. I can't give a grade based on the players themselves but like you, I have no real problems with the positions addressed.

What kills me is that the vikings are going to get A's from everybody. I just hate that.

I had no qualms about getting David Bakhtiari when they did. JC Tretter could have been a reach. You just never know. I assumed they will move inside and strengthen the G and C positions. At least I hope so. It does make me worry a little more about Sherrod's health.

Even though it wasn't a large need I expected a WR. Two was a little surprising but it doesn't really matter who they get int he 7th round. It is no surprise if they don't make it and always nice when they do.

Couple of beefy boys on the DL was expected and it will help. The OLB was a little unexpected unless they are a part of the new bigger stronger theme. I can't say much about them.

Ted likes DBs. I don't know if Hyde is going to line up as a cb or a s.

Pre draft I had hoped for Franklin. When they picked up lacy I was slightly disappointed. He is probably the better overall RB so I figured that was that. To have gotten both was great. And yes I know that the trade up was due to trading on day 2. They could still have done it with their own 5th and 6th picks. I am not sure Ted would have done it but it was still possible.

I'm a little underwhelmed by the LBs (out of pure ignorance/lack of info on my part), and really, really wanted Jesse Williams or Jonathan Jones at NT. The 2 WRs were interesting picks, especially with James Jones' contract up after this season. I like those OL more and more from what I've seen on video and read. The NT we drafted looks way more like a prototypical 3-4 DE, ready to rock. The CB looks awesome on film. Really great!

Jones, Lacy, Franklin. Stellar.

I'm thrilled initially with this draft. Thrilled. We will see completely in two or three years just how good this was. Maybe, more than 4 or 5 make immediate, significant contributions this year - a figure I find amazing. We'll see.

Jones, Lacy and Franklin will be contributors right away. EDS maybe the week 1 starting C but that may not last long with Bakhtiari if he can move inside. All in all there's a lot to like here with immediate help as well as depth and development projects.

Yep. Maybe some special teams help. I can see Boyd getting the chance to give Pickett a breather every once in a while.

Zero2Cool (3h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (3h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (3h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (3h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (4h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (5h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (5h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (5h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (6h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (6h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (7h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (8h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (8h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (8h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (8h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (8h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (8h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (8h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (14h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (19h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (23h) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (23h) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (23h) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.
Smokey (19-Jan) : Mason Crosby is ill, hope it's not the Flu.
Smokey (19-Jan) : Great, can we move past that story and get back to the Atlanta game ?
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Packers exec Eliot Wolf has withdrawn his name for 49ers' GM job, as @TomPelissero reported. He didn't feel it was the right time.
TheKanataThrilla (19-Jan) : We'll just have to score TDs then.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : That's what we know.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Crosby, Mason K Illness
