By now, with UDFAs, we have just about every thing, but I see it as significant that certain positions that some in the media and even some fans expected to be taken early were ignored or not covered until late.

Center: I'm glad we did not use a high pick on Barrett Jones or somebody else early. Apparently there is a good degree of confidence in EDS. Tretter might be a potential backup and/or Lewis from A & M.

Safety: Here too, I'm glad we did not waste a high pick on Elam or Cyprien or whoever. I wonder if they are looking at converting Hyde to Safety.

Tight End: I'm glad those rumors turned out to be false also - Eifert or some other high pick at TE. A late round pick wouldn't have been bad, but maybe Stoneburner will be just as good.I still don't think D,J. Williams or Taylor are completely safe to make the team. This may, however, mean they are confident Quarles is recovering OK.

Quarterback: None taken/None expected

Inside Linebacker: Especially after cutting Smith and this damn rumor about shopping Bishop, I'm surprised there was no ILB taken or even signed UDFA so far. Barrington is the closest to it. I HOPE this is not an indication of confidence in Brad Jones and Hawk.

Kicker: I don't know if I was hoping, but I was thinking they would bring in somebody with a decent shot at unseating Crosby.

Offensive Tackle: We did, of course draft Bakhtiar and Tretter, but I think it is significant that we didn't go after somebody earlier. This to me says that Thompson/McCarthy have at least some confidence in Sherrod coming back healthy.

Fullback: Does this mean Kuhn stays? I'd like to see him replaced from within; The question is who. Neither Green nor Starks seems suited. Taylor maybe?

As far as I know, Kevin Reddick is still available which seems a bit ridiculous as he was a projected 3rd round player. He has potential starter talent and is suited for the 3-4.

Time for DJ Williams and Ryan Taylor to either step up or hit the road.

As for Kuhn, I think he could be expendable. His position is near obsolete, and Lacy is a bigger guy who could fulfill those duties. Quarless too, if he comes back from the knee.

I give this draft a B-

I'm really disappointed we didn't pick up a Saftey. Even though the we nabbed a DB in Hyde he's still not a true S. But hey you never know.. Either the Packers are looking to acquire one in a Trade/Free agency, or they're content in keeping what they have. If they are doing that.. It's gonna be a long season in the back end of the secondary.

But other than that this draft is solid. 2 plug and play starters in Datone Jones and Eddy Lacy and 2 great backups in Johnathan Franklin and David Bakhtiari. The rest could be booms or bust.

im just glad we finally spent some high picks on positions we have been missing for years.

RB and DE have had stop-gap players at best for too long.

buckeyepackfan (24-Feb) : Packers receive 4 comp picks for 2018. 4th, 2-5ths, 6th
Smokey (23-Feb) : Peters to the Rams
Smokey (23-Feb) : and another player is lost to another team. Deja Vu again !
Nonstopdrivel (22-Feb) : should have done*
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Hi 😊😉
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : I guess I should have did a refresh when I walked away from the computer.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : Peters is 25 with one year left on his contract at just over $3M
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Mel Kiper sticks with Marcus Davenport to GB in 2nd mock
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : As for Marcus Peters, how old is he an what's his contract years left?
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Packers got tired of Sitton's antics.
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Sitton was released not because of play or salary, but personality. He will not be re-signed.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : If we are planning on possibly cutting Cobb I can see the 2nd round pick. A second round pick for Peters is a pretty good deal.
Smokey (21-Feb) : I'd offer Cobb + a 3rd round pick + a 6th round pick in 2019 for the CB Peters from KC.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : I guess that is a highter round pick
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : Suggestion was a 2nd round pick. I would want a lower round pick. I think that is too much. A 3rd or 4th seems about right.
Smokey (21-Feb) : Cobb and WHAT PICK ?
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : A suggestion I saw was a trade of Cobb and a Pick for Peters. I think that would be a great move.
Smokey (21-Feb) : Sitton was drafted be GB in 2008, not a young man at this point, but still is a "bear" of a man.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : Sitton? Maybe if the price is right.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : I doubt the Packers would try to resign Sutton. But who knows? If the price is right?
