    How many of those were taken in the 2nd round?

      The pick wasn't awful at the time... Remember he had great value at where he was picked, and the team had only one QB on the roster at the time...with 0 starts in his lifetime...and at the time he was perceived to be injury prone..... so yeah QB in that draft was a need.
      2nd round need? probably not, but I guess the value fit.

        I don't buy the "he had great value" argument.

        If he had great value, why didn't someone else take him sooner? Someone brought up Scott's board. I would hope and pray that every NFL front office, whch are staffed by dozens of people, has a better grasp on draft value than someone who doesn't work in the league.

        It was a bad pick with bad value. It's ok to be wrong sometimes and just admit it.

          This.

          I don't think GB went in to the draft thinking they were going to take a QB in the 2nd round but when BB was sitting there who some had as first round talent they pulled the trigger.

            Because Brady Quinn sucks balls? Rodgers had a few snaps in blowouts, and that one game in Dallas where Favre got hurt (and he played really well) to show what he had. While Quinn hasn't exactly been given the best opportunity to excel in, he doesn't really look like an NFL quarterback. Not nearly as similar a situation as the Green Bay one.

              There are very few moves by Thompson that I've really thought were bad moves at the time, but I hated the Brohm pick immediately. Not because of Brohm himself, but because spending a second round pick on a guy to be a backup QB/insurance policy isn't worth it. Best case scenario for us was we end up trading him in a few years for barely more than we spent to draft him. Buffalo signing him doesn't really make much of a difference, because if we'd gotten to the point that we need to use him, we'd have been much better off bringing in a veteran anyway.

                Did I say they were picked in the 2nd round??

                Having more than one solid quarterback is a good problem to have. I remember that some people were upset that we picked Rodgers, and look at him now. He was great value at the time, as was Brohm. Thompson has been steadfast on picking BPA.

                  Because there are always the Flaccos and Freemans that shoot up the board in the recent months coming up to the draft and potential always outshines production.

                    You can only play one quarterback at a time, that's why it makes no sense. Spending a 2nd round pick on someone who will probably never be your starter isn't a good move.

                      So you're saying that you still think Brohm is a good quarterback? There is a reason college production doesn't mean that much when it comes to the draft, it doesn't predict anything.

                      To answer your other post, the reason why someone like Hassleback was a good pick was that they took a 6th round pick and turned it into something better. The Packers, as someone else pointed out, were never going to get a a better pick in return for Brohm than the one they spent to get him. As it turns out, they got absolutely nothing.

                        How did they know he wasn't going to be their starter? Rodgers had earned the reputation for being fragile after being injured in the only two previous games he received PT. Brohm didn't pan out as expected, but it was an insurance plan for a team that was trying to make a SB run.

                          The guy couldn't beat out Matt Flynn for the backup job... I mean that has to say something about this guy.

                          Maybe Buffalo can do something with him idk.

                            So they were wrong:

                            -in their evaluation of Rodgers.

                            -in their evaluation of Brohm.

                            -in the overall evaluation of their team.

                            But this isn't a bad pick?
