Im a bit 'worried' about the lions and especially the niners upgrades this offseason ...

49ers were tough last season and they got some nice additions - even thou they lost a few peeps IMO their upgrades outweigh their losses ...

lions improved also - their frontline is going to be brutal ...

we need to run to the outside Wink

MN and bears not really worried about ...

and as far as this dudes C grade ... bleh - B+ at the worst (we got 2 of the best RBs in the draft) - and drafted some needs at every pick ... decent picks too.

Neither of those teams scare me.

The only way this team loses is self destruction.

I give the packers a B+. They had great value picks in Lacy and Franklin and both should make an impact right away and improve our overall running attack. Datone Jones is a solid 1st round pick and should give us a decent upgrade over what we had last year. If he plays as well as he did in college for us and does not get injured, I definitely see him improving our line and allowing our other players to make more plays.

The problem with draft/FA grades is figuring out what the grader uses for criteria. Prisco of CBS gave the Packers a C for the same reason others gave them an A or B...namely picking 2 RB's. The fact is, he has a passing game bias and sees this as a waste. The reason Thompson has been so successful in building a deep and talented team is that he gets good value for his picks (getting guys rated above where they were selected) and finding a lot of guys under the radar. He's also been smart enough not to waste salary cap money on players he can project will not be any better than their replacements. Bishop was a cheaper and better alternative to Barnett. Jones is a better alternative to Jennings. More importantly is the age old mantra of "better to lose a guy a year too soon than a year too late" which was CERTAINLY the case with Ahman Green and Brett Favre.

While the other teams in the fivision made some good FA moves and I think the Vikes had an outstanding draft, those teams are all still trying to fill holes while the Packers are adding depth. With few exceptions, the Packers can play at a high level with injury issues while no one in the division has anything close to their depth. Not only did the Packers fix a bad running game and add depth all over, but they have something like the 4th or 5th most cap space left in the league. That's what happens when you don't overpay for a Bushrod, Bush or Jennings.
