I've said many times that I have no problem with disagreement with or disappointment in TTs picks. I've disagreed with picks and I have been disappointed with picks and I have voiced such in the past. What I don't do is pretend that I know more than the man does because I don't. Again, maybe its just the way I interpret things but a lot of the moaning and groaning that I read about comes from people who do think they know more.

I've seen posts where people say things about a 2nd rounder or a third rounder or a fourth rounder "so and so had them rated in the 6th round" or they could have had him as an undrafted FA. If you can honestly say you have not seen this then you have not been paying attention.





Well they are idiots or morons. Not nerdmann of course. Gotta love nerdmann in all his glory. Keep in mind when yo read a couple of things. Most people are not as adept in communication skills as they should be. And what someone means and what they type and what another person thinks it means are often 3 different things. For example I took you to be more aggressive and confrontation that what you thought you were being. For that I am sorry.

edit- even after Harrell flamed out I don't recall roasting Ted. It was a gamble and it failed. I did revise my opinion as to WHEN to take a gamble. 5th round ok fine. 1st round not fine. Reach a little maybe but out right gamble no.

By and large I do not mind the draft picks. I would have preferred high picks than lower ones but then most people would. It would be great (cap room aside) to have 5 first round picks and nothing else in the draft. I simply said so. I more or less like the guys we have. Picking 10-12 new players means some of them are going away. I am not over excited about that prospect. The lower picks from 4 on down are going to take awhile before they can provide consistent help. I don't like to wait.

I Was gone all day, just now was able to look and see what Ted did today.
I am willing to bet that Johnson and Dorsey will end up on the PS.
Packers are set at WR with Nelson,Jones Cobb, Boykin and Ross.

LB's Palmer and Barrington both have a good chance of ending up on 53 man roster.

Depending on Perry's health at the beginning of TC, if he is not ready then there will be room for both.

Tackles Baktian and Tretter will have a tough time cracking the 53 man roster, again this depends on the health of Sherrard.

DE's Jones and Boyd,along with RB's Lacey and Franklin IMHO not only will be on the 53 man roster, they all will either start or be in a rotation providing rest for the starters.

CB Micah Hyde will get every shot to make the final roster, he will have only himslf to blame if he ends up on the PS or released.

All in all a pretty productive draft for Ted, anything can happen, but if all play to their potetial, it looks like Ted has beefed up the D-line, vastley improved the RB situation, and added depth to several positions.

Only time will tell if this is an A+ draft or a D draft.

No way Johnson clears waivers. He'd be snapped up before he even makes the PS. Dude's raw, but with his skills he could be utilized right away. Also, I think Tretter will end up beating out EDS for the C position. Heck, van Roten might beat out EDS.

I don't think either LB makes the 53, practice squad guys. Bacteria and Tretter will both make the 53, and I'm real excited to see if they come close to knocking out EDS and Lang. Agree with you on the running backs and dlineman. Micah Hyde has to beat out Jarrett, the cat, Bush. Tall order because of special teams.

EDS really that bad that 2 new drafties will beat him out? I thought he played really well at center. Better than Saturday. I think I heard Aaron say once that he was the C of the future during one of his Radio shows. And obviously he took over the last few games at center. Honestly Lang is a solid player as well.. I just think Newhouse needs to be challenged on the Offensive Line and I'll say Newhouse isn't horrible either.. He's going into his 3rd year Starting at LT. He's developing at a ok rate. And wasn't he a 4th or 5th round pick? I'd say he's a decent player in that draft.

Thank you Gaycandybacon.

I like both EDS and Newhouse. They've both done pretty well. Of course, they've had their whiffs. We've all seen them, moreso with Newhouse. I honestly can't recall a truly bad play by EDS.

Seems all of our linemen will benefit from an emphasis by the staff on run blocking, which can no longer be ignored like I believe it had been previously. Having quality depth now will be refreshing, along with some heightened competition for starting spots. The rookies will get a great opportunity to develop, and I like our OL additions quite a bit with this in mind.

I'll split the difference. I like EDS, and I like Newhouse as a backup, but not as a starter. The best news of all to me from these three draft days is that the Packers apparently have enough confidence in Sherrod's recovery that they didn't draft a OT in the early rounds. If he is anything like you expect from a first round pick, and Bulaga is back to 2011 form, then everything else falls into place. I said all along, draft a lineman who can be a backup center in the late rounds; Tretter is that - with Lewis for insurance.

The team doesn't improve by replacing young projects with new young projects. There were better quality players available when Ted traded back, there were better quality players that Ted could have traded up for.


I can see that. I've thought the same thing many time but lets assume you go into a season with 45 of your current players pretty fairly safe for the next year and 8 guys are expendable. You stand a better chance of getting 8 better guys than the 8 you have if you draft 11 than if you draft just 8. I do agree however with the part about not improving if you just keep replacing the bottom tier of guys. I just think that by the time you get out of the third round you stand about as much chance of getting a solid hit with a 6th rounder as you do with a 4th. One of those hits just may replace someone above the bottom tier and the more guys you have to look at the better your chances are.

I'm not sure I agree with your comment about the better quality players being available but with my very limited knowledge of these players I can't argue specifics with you. All I will say is that just because they are generally thought of to be higher round talent is no guarantee that they will be better players. In a lot of cases I follow the mantra"you get what you pay for" but not so much when it comes to football.
I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.
