It’s draft day, but where’s Mel Kiper and his hair?
The NFL’s annual supplemental draft is today (Thursday), and according to Scout.com’s Tony Pauline and Adam Caplan, the Packers are “considering using a late-round pick” on former Florida State defensive tackle Clifton Dickson.

It would be good insurance if Corey Williams leaves next year. Probably be the end of Colin Cole or Johnny Jolly if we do take him.

I think Colin Cole is a free agent too after this season and if this guy does great he can back up Pickett and we wouldst need to overpay Cole or Williams.

Cole is a restricted free agent after the season. I don't even personally see any value in Cole at this point. Williams is showing signs of becoming a good pass rusher. Signing him long term isn't key but you can never have enough good DTs.

I don't see why we need another DT. We have great depth there already.

There's no way we bring in another DT. We already have 4 that can start.

i saw this on PFT.com and thought it was worth a post (even tho PFT is wrong 90% of the time)

PACKERS EYEBALLING L.J.

A couple of weeks ago, former Packers linebacker George Koonce hinted on his way out of a front office job with the team that the Pack could be making a significant acquisition on offense.

The player in question could be Chiefs running back Larry Johnson.

WTMJ in Milwaukee reports that the Packers are "keeping a very close eye" on Johnson's situation. With one year remaining on his Kansas City contract, at a salary of $1.7 million, Johnson has made it clear that he wants a new contract before he endures another 400-carry season. The Chiefs discreetly dangled their Johnson (we couldn't resist) prior to the draft, but found no takers.

The problem is that anyone who wants L.J. will have to satisfy his contractual demands, and bow to the trade expectations of G.M. Carl Peterson. We think that, at a minimum, it'll take $25 million in guaranteed money to make Johnson happy, and a first-round pick and a third-round pick to get the Chiefs to bite.

If Johnson was worth that kind of a total investment, the Chiefs would be making it.

The reality here is that Johnson already has a lot of miles on the tires, and that it's still unclear whether Johnson is a truly great running back. Also, the fact that he carries the ball a lot puts him at greater risk of the kind of injury that would make the investment in his services look foolish in hindsight.

Absent a trade, there could be a nasty and protracted holdout. Johnson and Peterson have heads of solid rock, and we could envision both sides digging in, even if it's in no one's best interests to do so.

Arghh... again with this LJ talk. Unless we package players i.e. KGB, Corey Williams, Ferguson, Hodge, ect... I just don't see us making a move for him. He will turn 28 years old this year and wants a huge contract. I don't see TT willing to give up a high pick or multiple picks for him. Hell, I don't even see how Larry Johnson would fit well into the zone blocking scheme.

It if was ever going to happen it would have been before the draft. No chance now.

I doubted it then and I will doubt it again. Denver has put 7th round and undrafted RBs in the zone blocking scheme and had success. We don't need to give up high draft picks and and a ton of money for a power RB.

The Packers don't seem to be looking for a high priced RB anyway, they seem to want to rely on scheme. Also with all the draft picks we would have to give up, I couldn't think of a move TT would be less likely to make.

This guy turns 28 this season and he can turn in what Walker did for Denver. I say give him a shot and give him a 6 year contract worth 70-80 million.

People say that his legs are still young but I disagree. He had a 2000 yd season in 2002, then back to back 1700 yd seasons. That's quite a bit of wear for a bruising back like LJ. But still I would like to have him on the team. Not for a long term deal tho, maybe 3-4. He should be able to produce at least 2 more solid seasons and we need all the help we can get.

You don't need to pay him that much money to run in the zone blocking scheme. Take a look at the past Bronco's RBs and you'll hopefully see that.

He isn't stupid. He wants to be paid NOW because he knows he could break down with all the carries he has. He won't sign a 3-4 year deal. Look at all the other RBs that had 375+ carries a season. They flamed out the year after. Jamal Lewis hasn't been the same since he had his 2000 yard season.

Giving a guy a shot is paying them virtually no money, a 6 year deal for 70-80 million is a guarantee's salary.

I'm for LJ on the team, but then again I would have liked TT to have taken Paul Oliver with a third, so what the hell do I know? I'd like to see a couple components added that would add some punch. Herron, Jackson and Morency not too scary, but I'm hoping they're solid.

Which is making this off season feel like one of the longest I can remember and it sucks, because I like football a lot more than baseball. At least we dont have to read about any packers getting suspended or getting in any serious trouble. I just hope the brewers can stay in front of the cubs to keep me happy till training camp begins.
