    Bulaga and Cox are nice picks and I'd love to get Ducasse but I don't see him making to round three. I'm also not sure Edds is a great fit in a 3-4 defense.

      Dang, you're right, Big Vlad has been moving up the charts big time.
      We'd be lucky to land him in the 2nd round with our #23 pick there.
      He's a monster. Still, not too many people have heard of him.

      Now he's probably going to go in the 1st round... time to redo things again

          I've seen him play. We need someone who plays more coverage for our scheme though.

            1.) Brandon Graham OLB Michigan
            6'2" 264 lbs.
            NFL Comparison: Lamar Woodley
            He's physically stronger, and I feel a perfect compliment to Clay Matthews going forward. He's got skills, but he's also a good dude, and a high-quality guy which is signature of Ted Thompson's picks.

            2.) Jason Fox LT Miami
            6'6" 318 lbs.
            NFL Comparison: Sebastian Vollmer
            I've seen a lot of mocks having him available here, but I find it hard to believe. I don't set the rankings & projections though. I feel he's 1st-round material. Let's say we need to trade our 2nd and one of our LBers for him if the slot is too low.

            3.) Kyle Wilson CB Boise St.
            5'10" 186 lbs.
            NFL Comparison: Domonique Foxworth
            I wasn't as impressed as some are, when I watched him in their bowl game vs TCU, but he's probably already better than every CB on our team below Tramon Williams.

            4.) Nick Polk S Indiana
            5'11" 219 lbs
            NFL Comparison: Jim Leonhard

            5A.) Antonio Brown WR Central Michigan
            5'10" 182 lbs.
            NFL Comparison: Johnny Knox

            5B.) Trindon Holliday PR/KR/WR
            5'5" 160 lbs.
            NFL Comparison: Dante Hall 2002-2005

            6.) Tony Washington OT Abilene Christian
            6'6" 304 lbs.
            NFL Comparison: Jermon Bushrod

            7.) Nate Byham TE Pitt
            6'3" 255 lbs.
            NFL Comparison: Anthony Fasano

            Who likes it, who doesn't?
            What do you like, what don't you like?
            Nobody will create a perfect one. None of us, no GM's, no Kiper, no Mayock, no McShay, etc.
            I like the mock, but I think Graham goes top 15, I believe he will have a pretty stellar combine which will boost his status. I thought I read somewhere that he can bench press 225 over 30 times. If he is there and my guy, Bulaga, is not then I would take him in a heart beat.

            I think Fox will go top of the 2nd round to a team like the Lions.

            I like the selection of Kyle Wilson and Nick Polk, I think Polk is a talented player that still has not come close to reaching his potential.

            I like most of your round 5-7 picks, especially Holliday. I think there could be some potential there but the question is can he catch the ball well enough to hold down a roster spot. But I wouldn't mind taking the chance on him.

            So here goes my mock:

            1st Round: I see TT trading back, but for the sake of a mock I am going to say Jermaine Gresham, TE, OK. No hands DLee just pisses me off with how he drops the key pass. Teaming Gresham and Finley together would form the scariest TE duo in the NFL. I think Bulaga will be gone, especially after his strong showing in the Orange Bowl.

            2nd Round: Chad Jones, S, LSU - I like drafting a safety in round 2, whether it is Chad Jones, Morgan Burnett, or Major Wright, I really don't care. Nick Collins was a great 2nd round safety, I think we could find one in this round again.

            3rd Round: O'Brien Schofield, WI, OLB - After watching a lot of WI football this year, it became clear to me that he can play in a 3-4 as an OLB.

            4th Round: Doug Worthington, DE, OSU - Worthington played DT for Ohio State, and I think he has the frame and size to be a pretty good DE in a 3-4. He is 6'6" 280 pounds, he could easily get up to 290 without sacrificing any speed.

            5th round: I like the Trindon Holliday selection here.

            6th Round: OT

            7th Round: OT


            You will notice that I steered away from OT and CB. Reason: I think TT resigns either Clifton and/or Tauscher and Colledge(as much as it pains me to think that way). That way we keep Giacominni, Barbre, and have Lang either starting at LG or grooming a OT position. For CB: I think TT goes the free agency route and actually finds someone: Dunta Robinson would be a really nice addition(pricey and unlikely though)

              I'd pass on him. He had a great rookie season but hasn't been the same player since. Add in his recent injury history and you'll see why the Texans haven't locked him up long term yet.

                i agree with that but i feel like he would be an upgrade of bigby in coverage. im just looking to draft a safety in general incase someone goes down. and i felt like myron rolle has good upside and value.

                I watched him as a super highly-touted recruit and was hoping he'd have a great career, but he really disappointed me. I like using a 3 & 7 on CB though, Murphy has a chance to be good.
                only reason i went with brown over bulaga was because i dont think he will make it to us but id love to have bulaga. and for the mcknight thing i feel like a home run threat at hb would be a great addition for us. much like reggie bush is used for the saints. only without the price tag. also i like your mock of picking two tackles.. definitly need help there

                  I hope we don't spend a high pick on Gresham or any TE for that matter. A 4th or later on a really solid blocking tight end would be ideal.

                    I actually think that Gresham would be a great pick. He'd be another receiving threat plus he's a much better blocker than Lee/Finley. I'd prefer an OT, CB, or OLB but I wouldn't be upset with Gresham.

                      He really reminds me of a way more athletic version of Brandon Pettigrew from last year. I mean the guy is supposedly 6'6" 260, that is a big freakin dude. I am not saying that the Packers need him, but if the really good OT's are gone, and Brandon Graham is gone, I think it is a real possibility. Maybe if Warren has a great combine, like he should, I will warm up to him being a legit first round selection. Right now I think the only CB worth a first round pick is Haden.

                        thompson doesnt go for the combine warriors he goes for the people who jump out on film. the only legitimate corner in the first is haden. pre and post combine. anything else would be a product of a weak cb class

                          Gresham is very talented of course, but we don't need another option for Rodgers. Our offense is phenomenal, except one area: The OT's. To use our first round pick on another TE would piss me off as much as taking Harrell did in 2007. But I do like your thinking about replacing Don Lee because of his big damn drops. His drop in Minnesota might have cost us the division.

                          I don't think we can draft too many OT's, CB's, and OLB prospects, also another DL guy or two if Jarius doesn't pan out. I'm counting Kampman out..... and Poppinga just doesn't have the pass rush skills needed for this scheme. Brad Jones, Cyril Obiozor, they might... but Popps has been in the league awhile now and I expected him to be more like Kevin Greene, with Kevin Greene coaching him. Maybe Greene spent all his time on Kampman and Matthews though.

                          (By the way, did anyone just see Pierre Garcon run down and STRIP Ed Reed? I saw a golden chance for Jarrett Bush to do that last week vs Arizona, but he never even thought to try the strip tackle. I can't stand that. Dumb.)

                            Ron Wolf said his biggest regret was that he never surrounded Favre with enogh weapons. I don't think that giving Rodgers another receiving threat would hurt. Especially a guy who's a much more capable blocker than Lee. I'm not saying we need to take a TE but that if we took Gresham I wouldn't be upset.

                              Ron Wolf said his biggest regret, and mistake, was passing on Randy Moss in the 1998 draft, which it was.

                              The thing is, I don't think there are enough passes to go around now, and that Jordy and Jones have so much untapped potential now. Adding a TE in the first round? That's higher than we just picked J-Mike. I'd be very disappointed, and shocked, quite honestly.

                                Time for a new mock as I've had more time to read up on, watch some highlights of, and read thru some more rankings and projections.

                                I have Thompson signing just one role-player free agent, much like he did 2 years ago with Chillar, and the year prior with Frank Walker.

                                FREE AGENT ADDITION
                                Daniel Manning, CB/S, Chicago Bears ~ Age 27, 5-11, 202 Lbs.

                                He's listed as a safety but can play corner. Was the Bears nickelback but started
                                Think if him as like Jarrett Bush, but not a stooge. And think of him as Will Blackmon as a returner as Manning led the league in return average and number of 30-yard + returns, despite only starting half the season (2008).
                                He had a 59-yard kick return to help beat the Vikings in week 16 last month.

                                Was orignally a 2nd round pick by the Bears, out of Abilene Christian.

                                He's not great, but is solid, and you'll sure feel a lot better seeing him out there as nickel or dime than you will anyone else we put out there (other than TrayMon Williams).

                                PACKERS DRAFT MOCK

                                1- Charles Brown, OT, USC
                                A natural LEFT tackle, groomed for a year behind Clifton, the former USC guy will protect his former Rival Cal Bear Rodgers for a decade hopefully.

                                2- Dominique Franks, CB, Oklahoma
                                Seasoned, talented corner from the wild west of passing in the Big 12.

                                3- Cameron Sheffield, OLB, Troy
                                Was overshadowed by Brandon Lang, but has serious skills himself.

                                4- Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech
                                6'3", 229, big target who put up good numbers despite no QB or passing offense.

                                5- Adrian Tracy, OLB, William & Mary
                                6- Kyle McCarthy, S, Notre Dame
                                6*- Zoltan Mesko, P, Michigan
                                7- Lorenzo Washington, DE, Alabama
