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.

beast (4h) : Yeah it's weird, if anything goes wrong the defense and OL get blamed, even if passing game fault
hardrocker950 (6h) : But I put it mostlt on the offense and poor playcalling
hardrocker950 (6h) : I have seen the defense take a lot of flak over the loss..
Cheesey (7h) : Rodgers would have hit open guys. The game plan wouldn't have killed us. Less 3 and outs, and maybe some scores.
beast (7h) : Rodgers wouldn't of abandon attepting to get the ball to Nelson and Adams.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Rodgers with that game plan would have came up short too.
beast (9h) : Yeah the Packers defense got wore out... being on the field so long. Giving longer breathers than 3&out would of helped a lot IMO.
Cheesey (10h) : There wouldn't have been so many 3 and outs, thus keeping our D off the field.
Cheesey (10h) : True, but with the low score we would have had a chance with Rodgers behind center.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Brees is a damn good QB, not giving Capers a pass, not even close.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Saints kicked Packers ass with Rodgers too.
Cheesey (10h) : That's just it. Rodgers needs a DEFENSE as well. And without him, there is NO chance.
beast (11h) : Just fire everyone! Rodgers can do it without them! Hell trade for the healthy Browns players!
Cheesey (13h) : Capers needs to GO. So do players that can't cut it.
Zero2Cool (14h) : Capers presser summed up? INjuries are why we suck. (shut up, coach and adapt)
Zero2Cool (14h) : nearly crapped myself hearing dom capers talk, forgot to close the tab after mccarthy haha
Zero2Cool (14h) : McCarthy said the communication was not good enough on defense yesterday. Injuries in secondary have complicated substitution patterns.
Zero2Cool (14h) : McCarthy again says "I believe in him"... sorry, BS, we saw how you believe in him yesterday.
Zero2Cool (15h) : @The_Green_Gold Highest graded players Kenny Clark & Blake Martinez. It wouldn't be possible to grade an entire defense
Porforis (15h) : Well, it WAS clean until someone 'shouted' in it...
Zero2Cool (15h) : QB Brett Hundley when targeting a WR against Saints: 6-for-15, 54 yards.
Zero2Cool (15h) : clean?
