    The running back pick will not only help the offence but also the defense. If we can have more long drives and wear out the other teams defense and at the same time keep our defense fresh. That is a way to get back to the Super Bowl.

    What about our o-line. Rogers was sacked 51 times for a total loss of 293 yards. lacy will help take the treat away a little with a decent rb to give to. I hope Rogers stays healthy throughout this upcoming season. get some gargantuan monsters out on that o-line PLEASE!

  7. By Matt on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    There were three teams last year with more sacks than us. the rams, bengals, and broncos. our d was ranked 11th at the end of last season. Only 7 other teams with more ints. which obviously we want to improve to number 1.but we’re not as terrible as some would like to think. with out some protection for Arron we will see our offense slip. Unless lacy turns out to be a beast

    For all the guys concerned about trading down. This draft is considered to be VERY even throughout, so depending on your board, the talent may still be there for your needs in the later rounds. With that said, this also plays into the salary cap as these later picks can be signed at a discount price. Big consideration when you start paying out big money to your star players.

    @ Nick, I haven’t heard about this on NFLN coverage. I would be surprised at this development. You would only have Brad Jones & Hawk in the middle LB spot and I can’t stand both! I was shocked about DJ Smith being released. Could it be medical also?

    NFLN did report that Starks is on trading block which isn’t a shocker with his injury history.

    Just look at who we are looking up at with San Francisco this year. Look at their draft. To me it looks like what we should have done.
    Eric Reid FS
    Corey Lemoinier OLB
    Quinton Patton WR
    McDonald TE
    Tank Carradine DE
    Lattimore RB

    To me San Francisco goes and gets what they need for their team and they seem to be steps ahead of us right now. With this draft they are having I am really worried about us competing against them. Their defense just got better!!!!

    I love our Packers but taking 2 Offensive lineman and 2 running backs makes it hard for us to get a OLB, DT, WR and Safety that we need to help win against SF and Seattle.

    I love how hysterical some people are over one playoff loss. Green Bay went from the bottom of the league to near-top-ten on D with a raft of injuries and almost an all-rookie starting squad.

    Safety? They have three who are only getting better to go opposite Burnett. Corner? Are you kidding? That’s Green Bay’s greatest strength on D.

    Calling Green Bay’s defense “pathetic” is right on par with calling Aaron Rodgers a “system QB”. Empty, reality-starved words from either haters or the ignorant.

    Well, at least they grabbed what many considered to be the top 2 RBs in the draft – that will at least end the RB frenzy.

    Great draft. I’m looking forward to seeing what these prospects bring to the table and how they develop. This year is going to be a great year overall. Now lets pick up some decent guys in free agency and get after them niners.

  21. By John on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    This was a very solid draft and the addition of 2 impact RBs has just made the offense an even more serious threat. For those of you who are freaking out remember the defense was very young and the jump in performance happens in year 2 or 3. I think the 2013 team will be better than the 2010 Superbowl team in terms of balance. Some fans have lost the perspective that Superbowls are not guaranteed. Get to the playoffs hot, healthy, and lucky….That’s the challenge.

    What makes Thompson great is he doedsn’t pick a layer he picks players based on the system. for instance, everyone who wanted us to pick the Alabama center he has no versatility. The tackles we got could get plugged in a number of positions.

    As a Packers fan who lives in Chicago, I come here for sane football opinion. Normally, I can stay in the confines of the regular articles and Ask Vic, where the people who have to actually register a user name are pretty intelligent and civilized.

    The commentary here on this blog during this draft, though, made me wonder if I had made a wrong turn and walked into a Bears site, rather than into a room full of fans of a team that’s been in the playoffs almost every year. Get a grip people! This is the same GM drafting the same way as he’s done consistently and managed to build the Packers into a dominant force in the league. Maybe you ought to appreciate what you have, rather than sounding like Bears fans.

    Everyone thinks we need more OL to improve our team but ALL seem to forget we have some good OL players who had some serious injuries that hurt our progress. Remember we have Derek Sherrod and Dietrich-Smith improving along with Bulaga coming back from a hip injury….along with Sitton and TJ Lang…add these 2 new picks to develop and add depth..we have a nice solid O-line…so COOL IT PEOPLE!

  30. By Scott on Apr 27, 2013 | Reply

    The problem here is that if we pick a player who hasn’t been hyped on ESPN or NFL Network for weeks on end and have the “star” image the media provides them then crazy people on here think we didn’t get a good solid player. I bet a ton of people on here would go crazy with excitement and say we are headed back to the Super Bowl if had drafted Bo Jackson and Ronnie Lott since they know who they are and are famous!

    My predictions: (trust me as I know everything being a guru)

    1. Starks to be traded to Jacksonville for a 4th round 2014.
    2. DJ Smith picked up by Chiefs only to fail physical and be out of football.
    3. Bishop used as a decoy and wont be traded unless we get a 2nd round pick..otherwise he says to anchor the middle.

    Now all of these players are rated by some pretty smart people. The Packers dont draft by a name. Maybe sometimes they should, but they try to get a person they can train and play with, even though they might need some one who is able to do a verterans job for you now and you need that person, the Pack doesnt operate that way. Yes they are in need of some talent right now, but on the other hand they got a player for those positions they need covered. Now lets hope that the feeling the Pack uses of just getting a player and we will make him work out will move us ahead. We did get some pretty good players, now lets hope they are the right ones. Did we improve, did we stay up to the standard,are we the same but a bit under the standard, or did we not keep up and lose ground.
    Lets hope these things will be answered by early October!

    Wonderful Draft!

    One problem…does TT, the team, and packernation believe that McMillan and Jennings will be able to dominate, defend and stop action down the middle of the field as well as pressure opponents at the line?

    Can someone really tell me what’s going on?

    Why did GB not take one of the infinite selections of Safeties?

    These two won’t and can’t get the job done. Bring back Woodson!

    Nothing’s set in stone with these players, and Micah Hyde could turn out to be the safety you are looking for! They’ll play them where they are best suited.

  39. By WhiskeyBadger on Apr 28, 2013 | Reply

    I think the draft picks have been great. A very athletic DE with speed who gave the #1 draft pick fits. If Nick Perry steps up and becomes the player he was drafted for then that is a huge step in solidifying our defense. Hawk has shown he is too slow at this position for his draft placement and we need to find a replacement for him. As far as our Offensive line goes, we improved that by putting EDS at center and we’ll be getting our original lineman back from injury, combine that with a top flight tough RB to block and get those 3 and 1′s and I think our offense is unstoppable. Our offense will hopefully be able to sustain drives, control the clock, and keep the defense off the field. The read option I don’t believe will be around a long time as defenses mature to defend against it.

    Great draft. We get some of our number 1 picks back from injury, bulaga, sherrod (hopefully), perry. Some others like bishop, Johnny Jolly (possibly). Remember we are adding quality starters back in addition to a very solid rookie crop. Getting one of the top backs with the last pick in the second round and with it the trade down from 56 to 61st brought an additional pick from the fricking 48ers love it…..

  45. By Ryan on Apr 28, 2013 | Reply

    Very good draft! However, I would have loved to see a safety drafted in order to push M.D. Jennings and Jerrod McMillin… Not sure those are the guys I’d like to see starting the season for us. I think they give us great depth but don’t think those are starting caliber guys.

    Vikings fan here just wanted to congratulate the packers on a solid draft. Not excited to see what your offense can do with a potential solid running game but I have a ton of respect for Rodgers as a player (all trash talking aside :)) and this should help keep him upright this year and reduce his risk of injury he’s too good of a football player to watch end his career on an injury

    Let’s not worry too much about our D. Last year we got torched for a couple of reasons:

    #1 We couldn’t pressure the QB, this draft along with players returning to health should help us greatly.

    #2 Without a running game, our drives did not eat up much clock, and our D rarely got a chance to catch it’s breath before our D was back on the field. How many 12 play, 8 minute, clock eating drives did we have last year?

    No, let me clear something up. Whose to blame when this no namer from Maine and inconsistent player from Arkansas State allows all the big name receivers, tight ends, and running backs run them over. And just for clarification, time is something they don’t have. Everyone is trying to win a championship now. GB will be left behind! The window is closing fast on another championship. No one can keep a nucleus of experienced talent together forever, so what time are you talking about. They need to win, and win now!

    Getting Hyde in the 5th round is a huge steal. He’s a ball hawk,great cover corner and is also a reliable punt returner. He was a major strength among Iowa’s defenders. I’ve had the privilege of watching him the last four years and know Micah’s ready, willing and most definitely able to add to the defensive backfield.

    @dan
    the bears actually lowballed urlacher with a 2 million dollar payday who rejected it immediatly.. urlacher was also already upset with the organization for firing head coach lovie smith when leaving he said dont be surprised to see me sign with someone else for a million. prabably about what green bay would be able to give him then all of a sudden rodgers gets a million less a year than what he wanted coincidence?? then the packers make it known in the draft that the where interested in trading bishop why else would they do this unless they had another viable option??? it must suck being wrong;)

    I love this draft but still wish we would have got one of those top safties.

    Fact of the matter is the NFL has evolved. It used to be about physically beating your opponent with speed power and size. Today intelligence dominates the field. Players have to be able to out think and recognize their opponents strategy from play to play or they will be left in the dust. The 49′s proved that against the Packers in the play-offs. The confusion was tangible on defense after the first quarter. Players need to think about their actions before the snap instead of just plowing straight ahead trying to sack the quarterback on every play. McCarthy and the Defensive coaches lost that game just as much as the players on the field. They didn’t prepare the players at all for the running quarterback and the draw fakes. I just hope the players they took are intelligent and are willing to learn.

    Is it too early to nickname Lacy and Franklin; Thunder and Lightning? or something better?

    well guys i love what our team did, especially Dante Jones he is going to be a monster on the DL and help Perry to have a standout year while Matthews does what he does best, then the secondary will be in for a fun time picking balls and having turn overs, the offense with Franklin there its going to be dynamite, Cobb and co with new addition of Johnson gonna benefit great from our two backs, we gonna bound them with Lacy and they dance around them with Franklin and let Rogers pick the defence apart he is in for a fantastic year…… Go Packers!

    I wish Ted would’ve taken QB. Zac Dysert in the 7th to replace Graham Herrell, otherwise great draft Ted.

    One of the best parts about the packer draft which no one is talking about is we took two guys from the 49ers. That’s huge. Vaults the pack to the top in my mind. Genius!

    If Dante Jones lives up to the billing that should be a huge addition. I would have liked to see more O-Line. Farve spent his career running for his life, Rodgers is doing the same and was the most sacked QB last year. If the O-Line was as good as our receivers would have had the most unstoppable offense, bar none. A solid line does great things for the run game as well.
