Who do you guys want to see?


I am hoping for the best defensive player available or trading up in the first round for Mosley.

Haven't done much reading and research on draft prospects yet (plan on starting next week) but I don't think there is a safety worth a look in the 1st round. Clinton-Dix *might* be but I don't think he is as big of a talent as Reid or Vaccaro was in last years draft.

With that said, I think the Packers go after a big time playmaker such as CJ Mosley from Bama. I think that would require a trade up from the 21st pick.

The Green Bay Packers have traded the 21st overall selection to the (insert team name top five overall selection in round) for (said team)'s 2nd round and 3rd round selections.

Mosley would be nice but unlikely to happen. Personally I'll say either Hageman or as Z2C posted, a trade out of the round.

While I am sure that is likely to happen, is this draft that deep with talent? Again, I don't know much yet. I just think the defense needs that other athletic playmaker and having Mosley playing next to Clay sounds ridiculous.

Mosley can do it all. Worth the trade up. We don't have to stock up with multiple draft picks this year, imo.

Assuming we keep shields and jones. I don't see room for 7 rookies again. We need to pass rush, pass and run blocking, and Safety upgrade. The biggest thing that will help this team though is Pass rush. I would be fine with a move up to get somebody who can rush from the interior of the Dline consistently. Otherwise, pool picks and get 3 or 4 higher quality players instead of young depth. All that does is replace young potential with less experienced young potential.

Well since 2006 the Packers have either drafted a lineman or 3-4 OLB in the 1st round... (and in nickel packages 3-4 OLB are basically linemen as they're used as 4-2 DEs)

I'd REALLY REALLY like to see a dominating DL... as well as Pickett, Jolly, Raji, Neal and Wilson are all FAs this year... and even if you resign them Pickett and Jolly aren't no spring chickens, Raji hasn't been consistent, Neal has been needed at OLB and Wilson hasn't played much even when healthy.

So I want to see improved DL... I want to see high potential DL become a stud in GB.


High potential DL would be RaShede Hageman, Minnesota, 6-6, 311

Hageman is projected to drop into the late 1st as of right now because while he has a ton of potential he's also extremely raw and has been inconsistent... but there is also so much potential there. Some think if you can some better talent around him where he's not doubled (and sometimes tripled team) that he would be a lot more consistant and hiefs have a DL named Poe they said about the same thing about and he's not a stud in KC. High risk but possible high reward.


But I'm expecting more along the lines of NT Louis Nix, Notre Dame 6-2, 345
Nix gives GREAT GREAT effort for a NT and has shown he's willing to play any scheme asked of him, he can get after the passer some and is a beast against the run. Also he's been injured.


Another guy I would strongly look at if he's still there is CB Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State, 6-0, 200

All the physical potential is there for Gilbert to be a stud, but he's still extremely raw... but the CB coach has a history (mostly in college) of taking athletic offense players that were inconsistent on offense and turning them into consistent CB (on the college level)... but he has done the same with Shields. So why not give him another top talent guy to work with?
Can't have enough good CBs.
