The last time I looked at the results of voting from yesterday's post, the preference was to draft an offensive tackle. I've got to make a choice this weekend for the Green Bay Packers 2nd round pick in the SB Nation writers mock draft, so if you want to influence my decision, please go vote or leave a comment. I'm open to suggestion at this point. And for those who are looking for the best player available, go to Mocking The Draft (all the picks are in the right side column) tell me who you're surprised is still available. It doesn't look like anyone surprising is slipping down so far.
I've been content at offensive tackle after the re-signing of LT Chad Clifton and RT Mark Tauscher. While neither is great at this point in their careers, they are both good starters who solidified the offensive line. But maybe an offensive tackle is the most important player they can draft because their first priority should be to keep QB Aaron Rodgers healthy.
I've been down on USC OT Charles Brown because his college playing weight was under 300 lbs. and he's only beefed up to right around 300 lbs. in order to get ready for the draft. But Wes Bunting over at National Football Post was just gushing about Brown in his most recent post, and it blows his mind that Brown isn't being considered a Top 5 pick alongside Oklahoma State OT Russell Okung.
Pete Prisco at CBSSports.com has listed three pass rushing OLB as good prospects for the Packers, but he's currently one of those writers who believe they should draft Rutgers CB Devin McCourty. Unfortunately Prisco describes OT Allen Barbre as a "quality depth at tackle" so I'm not sure how much I trust his judgment at the moment.
