    I beg The men who make the draft decisions to prevent

    Aaron Rodgers from being sacked MORE than any other QB.

    Protect none other than “THE MAN” Arod from being sacked too many times.
    Work on a couple of good guards, tackles, RB Eddie Lacy preferably if they don’t get Ahmad Bradshaw. A Safety and a Middle Linebacker should be good.
    I’m gladd they re-signed Brad Jones. Go Pack Go!!! I can’t wait for another exciting season hopefully this is the one for another SB run.

    The packers O-Line isnt as bad as you guys make it out to be, alot of the time its Rodgers holding on to the ball too long and taking a sack which is better then forcing the ball, theyre more coverage sacks which is acceptable because their style of offense can get them out of 2nd or 3rd and long

  5. By Rahn Ozzy on Mar 22, 2013 | Reply

    EXACTLY!!! Well said Nick D. After the switch with Barclay and Evan Dietrich Smith i think the o line was pretty good. Great example…game against 49ers in post season, one sack from one the leagues best d line…i think DJ Swearinger will be a nice addition to the DB group…RB i think we are good with who we have, i believe alex green will have a good year this upcoming season. WR were pretty good but another one wouldnt hurt. even though i would like to see one of the practice squad guys step up.

    The O-line does need to be improved though with at least a center. Look at TJ lang from 11 to 12 in 11 he was good in 12 he looked a lot worse. It also all depends how Sherrod is. If he is good then we should be ok.

    OK…First of all one of the main reasons we won a Super Bowl a couple of years ago was because of our defense “NOT” offense…take a look at both of the teams that made it to the Super Bowl…49ers and Ravens…the top Defensive teams in the league once again…we need to go back to it…we lost N. Collins, C. Woodson, J. Jolly, C. Jenkins…right now our defense is great but its not balanced enough…we need to make Clay Mathews more effective and u need a good d line for that to happen… Rajie is at a contract ending year now we need to draft a DT just in case he doesn’t come back…our defensive ends are always injured and picket is old…

  12. By Yancey on Mar 22, 2013 | Reply

    The line is fine. Rodgers has to start getting the ball out of his hands. He is plenty mobile enough to get outside the tackles and throw it away.

  13. By Matthew on Mar 22, 2013 | Reply

    Lacy would be cool but 200 attempts is pretty low for potential first round pick. That concerns me,so let’s find a OL that will protect Rodgers for the next decade after he signs his 5 to 7 year deal. I would like to see a DE that can affect and change the game like Aldon Smith, hate to say it but that guy is a freak!!! After that do not care. So my order would be OL, RB, DE, S, WR, DB, OL, LB (if they keep their 8 selections)

  14. By Darrell on Mar 22, 2013 | Reply

    I like Lacy, I think he would bring some toughness to our team even without the best O-line. I hope Sherrod comes back healthy…then we draft defense after Lacy

    I think oline improves internally; no pick(s) needed..

    LT:Datko, LG:Sherrod or Lang, C: draft pick or EDS, RG: Sitton, RT: Bulaga. subs: Barclay, Newhouse, Lang, EDS

    looks good to me. 1-2, 2-3 yr player acceleration, etc

  17. By AZOconomo on Mar 23, 2013 | Reply

    Good points here. I say draft Lacy, Frederick, and Ball in that order.

  18. By ron on Mar 23, 2013 | Reply

    I think sherrod if he comes back will be at right tackle with bulaga moving to left. if sherrrod isn’t available then bulaga will still be at LT, Barkley did a very credible job when he was in there. I think the problems you saw with lang came from having to bounce all over the place.

    Nothing wrong with any parts of the offence. Defence is where we need the help

  20. By scott on Mar 23, 2013 | Reply

    The O-line does need to protect better but a lot of the pieces are in place already. Plus Rodgers does hold the ball to long. that is better than throwing into trouble but throwing it away more is something he could work on to help with the sack stats. My memory may be wrong but I can remember twice last year where Rodgers slid to avoid contact outside of the tackle box but behind the line. I also remeber 2-3 times he was forced out of bounds behind the line. those are sacks and make the O-line stats look worse than they are. (and make Rodgers completion percentage better because he didn’t throw it out of bounds, coincidence?)

  21. By pack rising on Mar 23, 2013 | Reply

    Defensive lineman, running back (montee ball not eddie lacy bevause ball can open his own holes), linebacker, safety,offensive lineman, wide reciver, defensive back, linebacker, backup quarter back (jordan rodgers aarons brother because right now if aaron gets hurt heaven forbid its over) all 8 selections in the order that could win us a superbowl.

    Are you reading this ted, cus you should.

  22. By NYPackerFan on Mar 23, 2013 | Reply

    Anyone that thinks the O-line is ok as is, didnt watch too many Packer games this past season. No running back, no matter how good will be successful unless they can open up some running lanes. They were not able to do that all last year. With no running game opposing defense’s were able to T-off on Rodgers all day. They were one dimensional all year long. We need some big boys to push that defensive line on their heels to get the backs some room to run. There was very little for progress, mostly trying to run from sideline to sideline. The D does need help, hopefully Perry can come back healthy and we get some pressure on the opposing QB.

    if benson stays healthy I think we are ok at rb, but if lacy is available then we should def draft him..but like nypackerfan said, it will not matter who we have at rb if the o-line does not give them some kind of lane to exploit..after that it should be all defensive picks..if we could run and stop the other team to go with the offense we already have we would be unbeatable..

  25. By Kirk on Mar 23, 2013 | Reply

    It depends on how they setup their board. Do they rank the player regardless of position, or do they take need into account when they rank the players to create their draft board? They say drafting purely on need can get you in trouble because the team is apt to reach, instead of creating a board and trusting your rankings. But, what are the rankings based on? Possibly need? I would think at least somewhat. I am sold on Barrett Jones, the talented offensive lineman from Alabama. I also like Alabama’s Jesse Williams who projects as a 3-4 DE. He could be a beast and Pickett is not getting any younger.

    I don’t think Benson is even on the team anymore. The Packers need to not waste money on Bradshaw, and draft Ball. IMO, the line is coming into it’s own, but draft depth. We also need some help on d to take pressure off of Matthews.

    Maryland Packer Fan, I’ve heard it said that in the San Fran game that the Packers defense did not maintain gap discipline, or did not stay in their lanes and once they moved out of position either by the blocking imposed on them, the deception of the read option or both, there were gaping holes and nobody to cut off the play until it was many yards down field, or the case of the Kaepernick run, all the way to the house (kiss bicep…puke!) Who knows what kind of in-game adjustments the coaching staff was trying to make, but clearly the players lost confidence and were getting whipped. Sometimes the better team wins. It’s apparent to me that our line backers not named Clay Matthews need more side-line to side-line speed, but for the read option, you almost need to avoid getting fooled first, and maintain your responsibility on the play, but obviously that’s easier said that done if you are getting deceived. I hope the trip the coaching staff just took to Texas A&M to meet with the coaching staff there to discuss the read option pays off so the team has better recognition of the read option and the players don’t wet the bed when teams use it against them. I love Ryan Pickett and think Raji can be dominant sometimes, but the Packers need to find that replacement for Cullen Jenkins they have not found yet. When they had him and Nick Collins calling the plays in the defensive backfield, the team was clearly more dominant with Clay doing this thing. C.J. Wilson is decent at stopping the run, but not as dominant, and doesn’t push the pocket like I think a guy like Jesse Williams would. I that dude would be a difference maker on the line.

    When we won the SB we were a mediocre team all year that got hot at the end of the season. Why? Because we had a running back that came from nowhere (James Starks) and it made teams respect our running game. This helped the O-line play, reduced sacks and kept the defense off the field. Benson is past his prime, sorry guys. Get a top tier RB and the other areas will all be better off instantly— except Kicker which is the other top need that can be addressed in the fifth or sixth round.

    I really think they are going to focus on defense in the draft. They will probably take a RB with first pick if they like it but would not be suprised to take a LB. I like nick perry, but dont know if long term answer so they might get someone to push him in camp and I think they will need d-line help. But with Ted Thompson you dont know what he is thinking and i trust hin=m.

    @jesse

    we don’t need a top tier RB!!! james starks was above average at best and we won the SB! O-Line needs to be addressed first; to protect Arod and create those holes needed for our running game. SIMPLE: no holes no run game!!! we can find an RB in the 3/4th RDS but IMO i think the RBs we have are fine! Second priority is Defense! Draft someone with immediate impact and having depth at LB and DLine wouldnt hurt…

  42. By jesse on Mar 24, 2013 | Reply

    Mark,

    I agree. There aren’t any RB’s worthy of a first round pick out there this year anyways IMO. The only time I feel our backfield is a threat is when we have our all around receiver back there. Our best O-linemen over the years come late in the second round or after (granted Tausher was a steal in the late rounds just as Donald Driver was). 1st should be a D-lneman. I’m thinking 3rd or forth round on a RB. 5th, the best kicker available. On another note I think Urlacher would play for GB for a box of Twinkies just so he could stick it to the Bears front office. He’d be a nice stop gap for a year or so if the price was right and give Perry someone to mentor under.

    History is repeating itself. Acquire best QB in football(Farve and Rodgers). Get 1big free agent signing in their careers (white and Woodson). Win 1 super bowl and then sell the fan base on focusing on the draft. You do realize other teams get 7 draft picks too?

    This is the kicker though, and then packer fans complain Farve throws too many ints or Rodgers holds on to the ball too long. They both have/had the worst OL in football with no weapons. Such a waste and we are watching it play out again. Ahhhh. They get Andre risen they win a superbowl! Go get some talent in FA. Broncos get Wes walker, Seahawks get Percy Harvin, and Niners get Boldin. Packers lose Jennings and fans complain Rodgers holds on to the ball too long. Are u nuts?

    Desert pack fan: Since Green Bay got beack to the top in 1996, only they, the Broncos, Giants, and Steelers have won multiple Super Bowls. Patriots won three but got caught cheating and haven’t won another since with the same coach and QB, so scratch them completely. And why don’t you see how Wes “Walker” does in Denver before you heap them with praise for the move?

    Throw the ball out or tuck it under. Get some impact players: WR, KOR, RB, DL, K & DB. What is sherrod’s status is his career over then add OL. Since FA isn’t a vehicle the Pack will use then draft and pick up other team fall offs this summer. Go Pack

    Rick,
    Don’t forget the Broncos signed a starting OG too. This roster is awful, they must spend some money in FA. Take Clay Mathews off the defense and they are the worst defense in the league, period. Replace Flacco with Arod and they are the worst offense in the league, period. Roster = FA + draft.

    The defence needs immediate help and could not agree more with kirk. Sideline to sideline speed on the LB group is not good for the Defence and needs to be addressed. If we are being objectively honest. Mathews needs to play discilined as well. He is an easy block when he drops his head and speeds rushes around the tackle. He gets kicked out and Kaep and Peterson run underneath him and that is when the ILB lack of speed shows. The pocket raraly gets pushed back. John Jenkins in 2nd/3rd round would be great. The Dline and OLB NEEDS to be a priority. Push the pocket back to allow a more read and react defence. Should be looking for three Quality starters where the depth exist. There is depth in this draft with DT/ DE and LB’S. FOUR PICKS should be spent hear. Huff should be in GB to allow Jennings and Burnett some more time.

    The offensive line is better than people think, injuries killed us. The guards with Lang (natural position better here than at tackle) and Sitton (possibly most underrated OL in the NFL) are more than adequate. Dietrich-Smith I think will be a fine center. We are fine with Bulaga at tackle. So yes a case could be made for the other tackle. RB is not a position that will be drafted higher than third round; so MAYBE Ball, Ellington, or a couple of others would be fine. Safety would make sense to find a guy that can play more like Collins did. Otherwise CB (depending on Shields situation), WR in like the second or third round, DL maybe. We are not getting a first round back like Lacy so keep dreaming

    We need a Running back so we aren’t so one dem…
    I saying Monte Ball from Wisconsin, they are predicting a late 2nd rd early 3rd pick, for him to be picked in this years draft. I do believe he is a sleeper in this years draft.

    and we need someone in the Secondary, and maybe another speed rusher either DE or OLB so Matthews isn’t the only guy out there that teams are watching for.

    just my thoughts.

    I’m a little surprised by so many comments about us needing a running game. I thought DuJuan Harris did an admirable job against the Vikings and 49ers in the playoffs, we just got away from the running game in the 2nd half of the 49er game. If we open up some holes for him, that guy runs hard, fast and straight ahead! Why not give Dujuan a chance?

    All that needs to be expressed in the draft(and therefore, most likely at all) are upgrades in the defensive backfield and the tight end position(god forbid this be Finley’s last year). Aside from this, the Offensive line will unfold and become better and the defensive front should be addressed later on pending Perry’s status as the supplement to Thor.

    You notice even superbowl teams had a weakness, it’s all about how you can recover or overcome them. With that being said not all the positions can be filled or really upgraded. Us Packer fans know what we can go without…because we have for multiple seasons. I think one we can’t go without anymore is the O-line and running game. In turn should help the defense rest.

  63. By Mike on Mar 29, 2013 | Reply

    Our team is basically solid on both sides of the ball, not great but solid. Any or all of the existing players could make that “jump” in performance that happens with experience.

    No one would argue that the O-Line could clearly use help at any position except Bulaga’s and Sittons, and depth there is a very good idea. Defense could improve on each of the three levels. But at 26 all the first round worthy O-line is gone (barring a fluke), and no real game changers on defense.

    This is a perfect trade year for the first pick, roll back and turn 8 picks into 10 or 11. There are high value D-line and O-line picks in the third and 4th rounds and our GM and his team are reasonably astute at finding them. I say drop back and bring in a volume of high upside new candidates to pressure the heck out of the vets. Best option in this draft.

    I suppose we could trade up into the top ten… Right…!

    I would really love to see the Packers jump up and snag Warmack or Cooper, I think our problem is being too content with upside, depth, and continuity. I could see the backs we have running fine then. Kinda afraid of the Packers not having a bread and butter guy without Jennings.

    12 draft picks won’t get you to the Superbowl. Come on these drafted players take at least a season to become capable at their position. Many a couple of seasons till they gain experience and confidence. I wish I could be optimistic about this season but there has been no players brought in, no new coaches, veteran players retiring or released. I just don’t see anything the Pack will do that will get them further in the playoffs this season.

    Defense: Gentlemen and Ladies: Barclay RT; Bulaga LT; Sitton RG; Lang LF; EDS C: Sherrock and Newhouse backups that’s a good offensive line. Benson will get resigned and he and Harris are good. It is defense: 3 out of the last 4 years we got killed on Defense. Indeed, defense won us a Superbowl.

    First Round OLB; Second Round DL; Third Round Safety; Fourth Round Corner; Fifth Round; OL Fifth Round OL Six Round DL Seventh Round OLB

    Just like last year until our defense is as good as SF & Seattle’s.

    Please, please, please do not draft Eddie Lacy. He will be an NFL bust. He is too stiff of an athlete. He will not be able to make a move in the hole to make a defender miss in the NFL.

    Talent is measured in many ways, physical and mental ability, instinct and effort. I see an offensive line with plenty of ability, yet they are getting beat because opponents effort and drive. On the defensive side, players need to learn and know their responsibilities, Contain… Seems like Our guys need to just step it up, stay focused.

    packers have good guards already, focusing on tackles and maybe a center, plus running back, safety, and middle linebacker would be good. possible defencive tackle in the second round?

    I have faith in THE MAN…Ted Thompson. Draft the best player available. If we get lucky that will bring us some speed on defense, which we need badly. Good players have been drafted, time for them to step up. We need a running game and I don’t see that player on our roster, that will help protect Rogers. And if Eifert is there I hope we take him, that would also help protect Rogers.

    I disagree with the notion that our line is pretty good. Did you see the 7 sacks we gave up in the first half in Seattle? Bulaga our no 1 pick looked lost, if sherrod comes back he maybe able to help some but no guarantee. Our defensive line got manhandled by giants and sf. Need help on both lines first, skilled players later. The draft is loaded with lineman, trade away the first pick for more picks. OL and DL. Not concerned about a running back, need somebody to open the holes.

    The packers need a safety and insidebackers all the good defenses in the league have good middle backers the line is fine and the run game is fine with dujuan harris starting and alex green on the bench because i sick of his no gain runs all the time GO PACK GO!!!!!!

    We need a running back at least in the second round we need an o line first though

    Any chance we could trade Dom Capers for, well anything. Surely there must be another team that can afford to have their defense give up third and long 90% of the time, all season long.

    To all those here wanting the Packers to draft O-linemen so that Rodgers won’t be sacked so much:

    You guys need to realize that a significant number of those sacks occur because Rodgers holds on to the ball longer that most QBs and is less willing to simply throw a ball away to avoid a sack. In my humble opinion, he takes a lot of sacks that he could avoid by just chucking the ball out of bounds.

    That said, I would like to see the Packers pick up a good OL in the draft if they can. But I see getting an every-down RB as well as inside LBs and DEs that can pursue laterally as much more acute needs.

    Dom Capers is fine its not his fault that the packers r still trying to replace cullen jenkins. Did u notice when he had clay and cullen jenkins the d-line got alot of pressure on the QB and created turnovers when clay is the only one to get pressure on the QB its easy for other offenses to key on him if perry comes back healthy and can get pressure along with clay u all will be loving dom capers again he does good with what he has and he also is working with the 3rd youngest team in football! And a running back is dime a dozen you dont have to draft one give brandon saine a shot or there run game will be fine with the one two punch of harris and starks or green!

    Dave speaking of bulaga in the seattle game he had a bad game so did the whole line. You put bulaga at right move barclay to guard bench TJ lang they will be fine. And speakig of bulaga dont u remeber how well he did in the super bowl? And all those sacks in the seattle game again were not just on the oline how about the offense runs alot more bubble screens or quick throws or slants if your line is struggleing to protect they r fine focus on a safety and linebackers and d-line. They have to get faster and more physical on defense

    They’re too soft, compared to Giants,9ers,old Ravens. Get us Margus Hunt,Barrett Jones,and a saftey. Add a big ten running back too.

    They should select 8 offensive linemen. MAybe 2 can start and help.

    WHY DO WE PICK 26TH AND THEN 55TH…?

  88. By The Pack is Back on Apr 3, 2013 | Reply

    Because the Saints forfeited their pick, and Cleveland used it in supplemental draft.Tricky question.

    Whilst I understand that it’s better for the scoreline that Rogers gets sacked than make risky throws, we’ve got to think about Rogers’ fitness and get him more protection; neither should be happening preferably. I like the idea of an offensive lineman and a centre. I like the sound of Barrett Jones and Jesse Williams, maybe a tight end if these guys come later. I wouldn’t waste a first round pick on Eddie Lacey; I think Bell and Ball offer as much quality and these will be available on days 2 and 3.

    I just wonder if the Packers plan on getting a Kick return specialist/wr/rb? I hear Cobb isn’t going to do that anymore? Is Ross the answer to that?

  91. By Rand T on Apr 3, 2013 | Reply

    The pack should draft heavy towards defense. 4 picks defense 3 picks offense. 2 DL 1 LB 1 CB. 1 TE 1 WR 1 OL.
