Packer Related: News From The NFL Combine

The first two days of the NFL Combine featured workouts at a few positions that the Green Bay Packers don't expect to use a high draft choice on: QB, RB, WR, and TE. But Saturday began with the offensive lineman, and no one stood out more than Maryland OT Bruce Campbell. Though I pointed out that his comparison to current Packer RT Allen Barbre may be a good reason to stay away from the workout warrior. This remains a great year for offensive lineman, so the Packers don't have to use their 1st round pick on a tackle.

While Campbell shined, none of the other top lineman hurt their standing, except for top rated tackle Russell Okung who literally hurt himself. He suffered a minor injury during his workout. Still it's likely Okung remains the top tackle this year, and he'll be long gone before the Packers pick. All the tackles should remain about where they are currently projected

While a young offensive tackle probably remains their top priority, Monday and Tuesday feature their other two big need areas: linebackers, if they are looking for a pass rusher to replace LB Aaron Kampman, and defensive backs, if they are looking for better depth. 

If you are looking for excellent coverage of the NFL combine, Rob Rang at CBSSports.com and the crew over at Arrowhead Pride are great.
