I don't know about you but I am stoked! Like a kid before Christmas!

This could prove to be one of our more impactful drafts moving forward, as the right choices could help take us to a SB win. That is my hope anyway.

Talk on the site seems a bit light considering it is the eve of the draft. This is OUR time as Packers fans to add new talent. Ted Thompson is quite good in this arena, and I wish him the very best to improve our team.

I want D to be the priority, especially DL. But, if we land a top WR, TE or RB early, I will be equally as thrilled with the selection. IMO, there are still some quality FAs to be had on the D side should we hit more O in this draft. It should be fun to see Ted work his way through this one. I could see him trading out of R1, then back up into R2 or R3 for more or to better his chances of getting exactly who he wants.

I would love to see him somehow get an additional R1 this year, even if that means trading away next year's. We need immediate help.

Super. Stoked!

Checked the calender when I woke up today; it was only Wednesday Crying

Really interested to see how the first three rounds are navigated by Ted Thompson

I want him to trade up, and I want him to trade down, but I bet he does so in inverse order. That top 100 looks loaded. It WILL be interesting.

This draft & develop thing can weigh heavy on a fan's heart. Hayward was the only real player to come through bigtime for us last season. I'm hopeful for the developing to occur, and that Perry, Manning and Worthy (when he comes back), McMillian, Daniels, Sherrod, Green, House, DJ Williams, Ryan Taylor et al can make names for themselves this season.

Regardless, it is a new draft, and I hope it is one of Ted's best. Ever.

I've been working 6 tens for the last 6 weeks, I don't even know what day it is. I am very unprepared for this year's draft.

Dude, I know what those 6 tens are. You have my sympathies. Guess Ted will have to do this one without you. Now we're fucked!

Go easy man, and check in often!!!

I'm very excited to be sleeping throughout the entire thing. It starts at 1:00 am and I have to get out at 6.

I miss the old, two day NFL Draft.

ya a bit too 'media' driven now - 3 days is too long.

too much hype and publicity for kids that havnt even played in the NFL ...

Im only slightly excited for the draft ...
to be honest I would of been more excited if I saw that brad jones was shone the door instead of giving him ... what 11 mil?
but that's another subject

I'm really hoping we get 4 or 5, or even 6 of any of these players:

Star Lotulelei NT
Sylvester Williams DT
D.J. Fluker OT
Bjeorn Werner DE
Margus Hunt DE
Datone Jones DE
Jesse Williams NT
Jonathan Jenkins NT
Johnathan Hankins DT
Philip Thomas S
Jonathan Cyprien S
Tyler Eifert TE
Travis Frederick C
Brian Schwenke C
David Quessenberry LT
Kyle Long OG
Jamie Collins OLB
Kwame Geathers NT
Montee Ball RB
Le'Veon Bell RB
Stephan Taylor RB
Justin Hunter WR
Cordarrelle Patterson WR

As it stands we can probably get 3 from this group, we should be able to anyway. With some shrewd trading, maybe Ted can add to that total. I'd be thrilled if he stuck to the lines, and maybe added one top skill player on O.

BTW, I miss the Saturday/Sunday draft. I think Ted does too. I recall him saying in an article how he was more of a morning person, and that this new format is not to his liking.

From what all the "experts are saying, after around the top 10 picks, there is not a whole lot of difference between 11 and 32,and plenty of really good talent in the top 70 or so,
meaning if someone wanted to make a big splash they would have to jump into the top 10.
I don't see Ted doing that, but there is a real possiblity that another team may want to jump back into the bottom of the 1st rnd and Ted may go for that.

Scenario...49r's have the 31st pick plus 2- 2nd's and 2 - 3rds.

If you were Ted and they called and offered the 31st pick plus a 2nd rnd, or the 31st and both 3rd rnd picks, would you deal with The 49rs?

edit..(I know 49rs have a higher 1st rnd pick but that would have already been used)

49ers have #74 and # 93 in R3. I would do it. That could turn into RBs Montee Ball or LeVeon Bell and C Travis Frederick.

I absolutely would make the trade. Minimal move down in a deep draft and pick up 2 picks? Heck yeah!

Sports Talk was saying there are rumors about 49ers and Packers making a trade for picks. NO clue anything further.

I don't follow college football so I haven't even heard of 3/4 of the names bandied about regarding the draft. For me it will be just as exciting to open up a newspaper tomorrow and see who the Packers drafted. The ONE guy they drafted. I much preferred the old way when you could see three guys added to the team on day one. This stretching out of the draft to make more money has made me even less interested than I was before.

I will be content to wait until tomorrow morning, or maybe even tomorrow night or Saturday to find out who the Packers took. Then I will get excited.

Hmm, I guess 75 to 80% of those guys are gone by the pick #88, so 3 sounds reasonable, 4 imaginable, but I highly doubt 6. Sure, guys like Ball, Bell, Geathers or Quessenberry probably fall to the 4th or 5th, but even with that it's hard to end up with 6. ;)

Anyway, I'm excited, it's Draft day and of course I'll watch, PTO on Friday, like every year since they changed to the 3 day system. However, I have a strong feeling that I'll be awake all night and won't see any new Packer. My prediction: A trade down to the early 2nd and the pick will be a WR (Robert Woods). Just a feeling .... :D

Hey GermanGilbert, I was thinking with a trade of our R1 from next year to jump into the 5-6 range. 4 is definitely doable with what we currently have and maybe a trade down from 26.

Trading away future picks is not really Ted Thompson style, but this guy surprises us every year ;) So we'll have to sit down and wait what's gonna happen. Everything can happen every year for sure.

He might trade Hawk or Finley, but he's not sacrificing a future draft pick. He's more likely to give up this year's for a better one next year.

Not one football fan I talked to today likes this 3 day format.
Nor do I.
