        Yes I really really hope we finally address the CB position and get somebody with lots of talent. No more 2nd 4th and UDFA CB's who really aren't cutting it.

          Brandon Hogan got a DUI and may be suspended for the season. Could be a steal.

            If that LB can run a 4.25 and is anywhere near the Packers, I'd love to see him on the team. CB and RB might be bigger needs, but Moch as a Packer would be special to see along with Barnett and Matthews.
            The pain fades and the good memories will remain.

                Ranking our needs...

                1. OLB (pass rusher)
                2. CB
                3. OT (Bulaga is the replacement for Tauscher, not Clifton)
                4. RB (Hopefully Grant comes back 100% next year and we need to see what Starks is made of)
                5. DE (we need depth along the defensive line at all times)

                  I think it would be pretty awesome, not being a homer, if the Packers drafted either Carimi or Watt from Wisconsin. Unlike PrinceFielder, I think Bulaga is the LT of the future, even though he is playing really well at RT. Draft Carimi, make him a RT, our OL is set for the next 8+ years.

                    It's good to know that Bulaga (at RT at least) and Tramon can both be starters for the next bunch of years so unlike the last couple of drafts we only need 1 CB and 1 OT instead of 2. We aren't forced to take either one in the first 2 rounds now.

                    Thanks to BK for the sig

                      Repost from 2011 draft needs thread

                      1) OT/OG: They need to take the best OL available because the only spot on the line that is locked is RG (Sitton). I don't think they know if Bulaga is going to play LT, LG, or RT, but both tackles really look like they are going to retire after this year and at left guard they are playing disappointing Daryn Colledge who I'm pretty sure is a UFA next year, and they've been experimenting with replacements. Might need 2 guys here.
                      2) OLB: Pass rush has been a major problem especially now that Clay Matthews is getting all the attention. Brad Jones, 2009 7th rounder, has been hurt and benched a few times and is currently on IR. Former 4-3 SAM LB Poppinga is on IR and a backup at best. Rookie UDFA Frank Zombo is not athletic enough to do anything besides fill his gap and limit mistakes.
                      3) PR/KR: Unless they want to risk getting starters hurt, they need a return specialist to cover up a pretty major weakness here.

                      ---This is where need ends. Wants and future replacements begin---

                      4) CB: Tramon Williams is a true #1 and 27 years old. Woodson is going to keep playing for a few years but he should get moved to safety the first offseason we can do it. He's been having trouble in coverage this year for the first time and Capers has been consistently putting him in the box to blitz or play the run. Rookie UDFA Sam Shields looks promising (currently nickel) but the Packers need a nickel back at best and a #2 starter at worst.
                      5) RB: Ryan Grant and Brandon Jackson are pretty much the only viable options here, and Grant is coming off surgery. They need a 3rd, who will get into the weekly game plan if they like him, but at worst will make the roster and take a bunch of carries if Grant or Jackson gets hurt. Preferably a quick receiver, something that would work great in our offense but we haven't had in years.
                      6) Center: Scott Wells is a bit undersized and has lost his starting job in the past. He's been consistent but I wouldn't be surprised if they brought in competition outside the first 2 rounds here to see if they can give Rodgers a guy to get chemistry with, in addition to helping out the inept run game, help call blitzes, and hold up to some good NFC-N DTs in December and January.
                      7) Wide Receiver: Donald Driver signed an extension but also went 2 games in a row with zero catches after over 100 straight games with a catch. James Jones and Jordy Nelson are both talented but very inconsistent, and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if they brought in a guy at #5 to get a head start on him for after Driver leaves. Since they use 4 receivers every week (despite rarely putting more than 3 true WRs on the field at the same time now) even a guy that is 5th on the depth chart has a good chance to see the field on a weekly basis.



                      I'm usually not one to hype Wisconsin draft products but I would be ecstatic if we drafted David Gilreath or James White (when he comes out)...or Carimi to a lesser extent. Carimi playing LG might be exactly what our running game needs.

                        OLB

                        If we get another threat to compliment Matthews, the other needs on defense become secondary. Our defense would instantly be one of the best in the league. Thats where our 1st pick should go.

                        OL

                        Bulaga, Sitton, Lang and Newhouse look good for the future as starters and depth guys that can eventually become starters. Clifton is almost done, Colledge is doing ok but hes a poor run blocker. Wells is ok but undersized and gets driven back too often, bending but not breaking. OL should be a top priority once more this year.

                        RB

                        We need a complete back. Grant can run but cant catch, Jackson can do a bit of everything but nothing special.

                          Early Round Mock

                          Rd 1- Justin Houston, OLB, Georgia

                          Houston has demonstrated his explosive ability with 17.5 TFL and 10 sacks as a junior this season. He has moved up into late first-round consideration and may move too high for the Packers to get him by April. Would be a dangerous bookend combo with Clay Matthews. For years to come. Jay Cutler and Matt Stafford will have nightmares of these 2 for a decade.


                          Rd 2- Leonard Hankerson, WR, Miami

                          Donald Driver has been an all-timer, but at his age, his body is starting to break down. Enter Leonard. From The U.


                          Rd 3- Green Bay Packers: Nate Solder, OT, Colorado

                          The Packers need a successor at right tackle for Mark Tauscher if Bulaga really is the future LT after Clifton.
                          Solder fits with what the Packers look for from its offensive linemen, although he might be a bit too tall.

                            It would be so epic.

                              Yes getting Casey Matthews would be awesome.... I wonder how much higher he will be picked now than he otherwise would have... considering that Clay has turned into such a monster.
