Andrew Quarless, another great call. Nate Palmer too.

One to underscore is Josh Boyd. The guy is huge at 6-3 310, with very quick feet. He played alongside Fletcher Cox at Mississippi State in 2011, registering 4.5 sacks. Finished last season with just 5 fewer tackles than Cox who went #12 overall in 2012. Boyd's hallmark is as a run stuffer, but the guy can get after the QB. His numbers dipped at MSU after Cox left, but I'm looking forward to seeing what this player will bring us alongside the likes of Datone, Raji, Pick et al.

This could be good. Boyd may prove to have been a great value pick to bolster our DL depth.

You never know with all of these newly drafted players, but I'm excited to see how Boyd plays.

If Josh succeeds they will not keep Jolly. They do the same thing and Boyd is younger. Then again maybe this is Pickett's last year and they stash Boyd and bring him back next season.

5 . Sean Richardson - S - Can the guy come back and contribute? If so, I think he might be part of the weekly solution on this defense.

4. Brad Jones - ILB - With the Packers moving on from Bishop... will this guy continue to build off a successful 2012 campaign.

3. Johnny Jolly - DL - Can the guy cut it after the down time.. if he can, he may be part of the rotation on the defensive line.. we need more power players at the point to allow the Backers to flourish.

2. B.J. Raji - NT/DE - Who is the real BJ Raji? Can the guy break through and start to maximize his potential.. if so.. the defense becomes better day one.

1C. Dezman Moses - OLB - Can this guy make the jump we need him to make to help balance the edges from a pass rush perspective? I believe he has the talent to be a pass rusher.. can he do it in year 2.

1B. Nate Palmer - LB - The Packers made a curious pick.. I am looking forward to see him on the NFL field to see how he fits.

1A. Nick Perry - OLB - Are the injuries a freak thing.. or is it something of a pattern? If he can stay healthy.. can he be the bookend to Matthews? Can he truly make the leap to OLB and play the position at a high level. Questions.. Questions.. Questsions.

Other interests:

Worthy
DuJuan Harris
Charles Johnson
BJ Coleman
The flipping of the line.. AGAIN.
Jermichael Finley
Jarrett Boykins

I think if the oline and playcalling on offense balances out and the backs can carry the load they should be afforded.. our defense will improve instantly.. albeit, I think that is where most of the concern lies in terms of questions.

Atleast the flipping of the OL is happening during the offseason, not week 6.

1. N. Perry-will he be really good?
2. D. Jones-will he step up to give immediate help?
3. D. Sherrod-will he come back from his injury and become a player worthy of his pick?
4. B. Bulaga-will he be a good LT?
5. B.J. Raji-will he be an All Pro level with a better players around him?

There should be some very interesting and intense battles all across the defense and at running back. Looking forward to watching and reading about them.

1) Perry/Neal ~ Packers need more pass rush and I think they'll be used in some of the same ways.
(Mainly Neal to see how he's looking at DE and OLB and how they're using him at OLB)

2) OL ~ The OL switch up, and RT battle, back-up C battle and the LT draft pick. (and Sherrod if healthy)
(Mainly watching to see if Barclay pushes anyone for a starting spot, and maybe some of Van Roten at Center)

3) McMillian ~ Just have the feeling the kid could break out huge for the Packers.

4) TE ~ TEs play could effect a lot not only this year but future years with both Finley and Quarless in contract years
(Mainly Quarless see how he's improving)

5) WR ~ Every year people watch the WRs, and this year will be no different. See how the top guys are doing and the possible very interesting back-up WR battles.
(Mainly the back-ups see the ranking, though I'm expecting if healthy Boykins and Ross to surprise people with a jump from their first year to their second, but also watching the rookies talent).
