    My name is lea seefeldt what kind of the packers need in the draft 2014 I think we need a young quarterback with good speed and hand to the receivers that we need in the draft 2014 with a linebackers and a safeties and cornerback that can read coverages in the defensive too.

  4. By Lea on May 8, 2014 | Reply

    We need a young quarterback that can read coverages in in the defensive and we need a good linebackers with safeties that can read the quarterback where to throw the ball to the receivers we need a punt returner and kick returner can run really good speed

    lol You can literally find a story/link linking almost every player in the top 40 to the NYJ’s pick, now they are looking at QB’s, hasn’t every team except a few of the good franchises tried that phony story about wanting manziel or a QB, pathetic guys Al Davis isn’t in the league anymore and Dan Snyder has RG3, that stuff isn’t gonna help ya

    Negative on Nix and Lee guys no chance. Its a DB or LB in the first and 2nd round. Then Center, WR and TE in the 3rd and 4th rounds.

  9. By Eric on May 8, 2014 | Reply

    If Dennard, Dix, Pryor and the kid from Okla State are gone in round 1 its going to be Mosely, Shazier or Barr. But, if any of those Db’s are there you can bet they are the guys BAP and a need. Williams leaving next year makes getting another DB whether CB or Safety a necessity. Pryor is my guy if he is there at safety, Dennard at CB and Barr at LB.

    I knew it safety! Hyde stays at Cb and takes Williams spot or Heyward next year luv the pick!

    did anyone notice that HA HA was not happy at all! wth…

  18. By Manipuflation on May 8, 2014 | Reply

    Ha Ha was a great pick. He’s not special at anything but knows how to play football and that is what we need. Now we need a linebacker that can step up and stuff them at the line. Yeah, it would be nice to score a tight end if we can but Quarless was not bad last year. The 2013 defense was horrible and we all know that. Keep drafting defense Ted.

  19. By Noel on May 8, 2014 | Reply

    Hate the pick! There were so many better alternatives at 21! Our division just got a lot better but the Packers sure didn’t!

  20. By Chad on May 8, 2014 | Reply

    Exactly. I was happy to see him fall to us until he made it obvious he was disappointed to be a packer. I wish Barr, Mosley, or Pryor fell to us. Heck move Hyde to safety and select Dennard. I’m disappointed he showed no enthusiasm to be selected by GB.

  21. By DOC on May 8, 2014 | Reply

    Great pick. From what I saw he had a smile on his face and looked pretty happy to be picked by who and when he did.

  22. By Matt on May 8, 2014 | Reply

    So very disappointed with the Dix pick and he reaction. Trade him now because he doesn’t want to play in GB. And besides he’s average at best.

  23. By Daniel on May 8, 2014 | Reply

    should pick kyle van noy. he would compliment matthews greatly!! he plays just like matthews. imagine matthews and van noy coming from opposite side on the qb!! too bad thompson does not know what is best for packers.

  24. By Green Tide on May 9, 2014 | Reply

    Losing 7.65% of your income to taxes, for the privlege of living someplace buried in snow 5 months of the year wouldn’t make anyone happy. Even if the cheese is the best in America.

    Hopefully he will work out as well as last year’s player from AL.

  25. By Eric on May 9, 2014 | Reply

    6’1″ and 205 with the frame to put on another 15 or 20 solid pick. You guys are crazy to think he is not happy to be a Packer he just looked like he had an enforcer look to me. Nose for the ball and makes plays. Was hoping for Pryor but with those tall Bears and Lions WR we needed a taller safety that 5’11”. Now Burnett can roam around and be the ball hawk and this kid can lay the wood and play the slot guy too. See a lot of 5 man rush Daniels, Raji, Peppers, CM3 and Perry/Jones/Neal and 6 DB looks this year w Williams, Shields, Heyward, Hyde, Dix and Burnett covering. Lots of options for Capers this year to get pressure and when he blitzes we will not be exposed as much on the back end.

  26. By Eric on May 9, 2014 | Reply

    Thought Detroit took BAP but they have no need for another TE unless they think Pettigrew’s hands aren’t what they want. Thought they wasted a chance to get a good LB or DB which they sorely needed. Vikings reached on Bridgewater not a strong arm and outdoors now he will struggle in Minnesota. Thought the Bears did well but it is the Bears. Packers offense will be dynamite this year w Arod and Lacy just need the TE in the 2nd round now and a Backer or Center in round 3. Maybe a WR in rounds 4-07 some where. The center from Colo State could beat out Tretter and start day 1 or the center from USC. Packers did the best of the division.

  27. By Phil on May 9, 2014 | Reply

    Last years defense was merely a continuation of the past several years with the three man defensiveline. Rid us of the defensive coach and bring the 4man defensive line back and maybe the Pack will be able to do something with the opponents run game other that watch it.

    Why all the hate? Didn’t YOUR guy get picked? Wait and see how these guys perform before you get your undies in a bundle! Personally liked the Thorton pick and I never heard of him! Just watching his film, you could see this guy is ultra quick for his size. Have a good feeling about his abilities and looking forward to his progression! You will need patience to see that and I’m not sure there are many people here today that have it. REEEEEELAX!

    I can’t wait for Ha Ha’s first interception just to hear all of Lambeau chanting “Ha Ha!!

  32. By Cheese on May 10, 2014 | Reply

    Wait, I’m confused. I thought the philosophy was to take best available player like TT says?

    Shouldn’t we have taken McCarron or Murray when they were there in the 5th if that’s really the philosophy? Or Carlos Hyde in the second when he was there? Hmm…seems the “best player available” philosophy is a little misleading.

    Anyone who thinks the Ha Ha pick was bad, doesn’t know much about football.

  34. By Cheese on May 10, 2014 | Reply

    Bucky I agree with you, but based on what? Why don’t they know much about football? It’s easy to just say that, but what makes this so evident? Are those who think Pryor was 1a. and Ha Ha was 1b. so wrong for some reason?

  35. By Bob on May 10, 2014 | Reply

    Excitement in the making. Glad to see our concentration in defense, and wider choices to add to Aaron’s arsenal.

    HaHa was a great pick and we should feel lucky picking him up at 21 because if he was gone then there isn’t a lot of first round need for the Packers.

  39. By Bucky on May 12, 2014 | Reply

    In response to “Cheese”. Are you talking about Calvin Pryor? He was off the board at 18! Granted the Packers could have traded up, but why would you? If these two players are 1a and 1b, how much could you gain by trading up?

    The Packers did it right by staying put and getting arguably the best safety in the draft. They filled a spot of major need with a top prospect… how is that not good. The people who can’t comprehend this, don’t know much about football.
