Drafting for the Future...

Helping Hurricane8765 with his "Greatest Needs?" fanpost, got me to thinking, so I'll rehash my picks here...

I don't see anyway it could happen, but, if OL Barrett Jones, who is currently Ranked #27th on CBS Sports, is available when the Packers pick at #32, I would be astonished if Ted Thompson didn't select him. Barring that miracle, TE Tyler Eifert is ranked #32. We all know TT/MM's penchant for drafting TE's...

2nd Round ~ We have a #1 WR that may or may not be re-signed. If WR Terence Williams who is ranked #54 overall, is available I wouldn't be surprised if TT pulled the trigger. If he's not, I'd expect TT to draft RB ~ Eddie Lacy.

3rd Round ~ We could use an up-grade at ILB, so if Kevin Minter, LSU, or Nico Johnson, Alabama, might be just the ticket. RB ~ Joseph Randle or RB ~ Mike Gillislee if TT went WR in the second.

4th Round ~ I'd expect TT to go BPA obviously, but, depending on how the above rounds shook out, TT might have his eye on ILB ~ Shayne Skov, or RB ~ Kenjon Barner, with 4.39 speed Barner might be flying up draft boards?

5th Round ~ C ~ Braxston Cave, ND, DE ~ Michael Buchanan, IL, or DT ~ Josh Boyd, MS ST, anyone of the 3 would be ok with me...

6th Round ~ Hard to predict what TT will think is the BPA, or what he thinks we need... FS ~ Daimion Stafford, Nebraska, FB ~ Zach Line ~ SMU, or TE ~ Jake Stoneburner, Ohio State, may be TT's type players.

7th Round ~ QB ~ Collin Klein, Kansas State, will probably go in the 1st round if he wins the Heisman, but, CBS has him ranked 209 overall, so if by some miracle he's still available, I'd expect TT to draft him. DT ~ Anthony McCloud, Florida State, might be an interesting pick. ILB, Bruce Taylor, Virginia Tech, would also be a guy TT might like.

Without knowing what Comp Picks we might have, and without knowing exactly who TT will re-sign or doesn't re-sign, a lot of these picks are subject to change. Just a very early list of possible draft prospects... Would love to see who everyone else likes, or expects...

Go Pack Go!!!
