      Jermichael, Quarless and Lee is a solid three TEs, though I am not a fan of Quarless' work ethic and his progression in college. I don't like the pick, but it seems TT hedging this draft for the future rather than providing players for now. Not great value, IMO.
      Bulaga = Great value, but he's a second stringer for possibly the next two years, but if he shows live legs and can pick up the offense, he could be coming in quite a bit at RT, particularly on power run plays.
      Neal = Didn't like the pick, given Harrell is as durable as toilet paper in a rain storm, and that Jolly has legal troubles still on deck, GB could be down two DEs.
      Burnett = Was a better value in the third than Neal in the second. This one actually puts roster pressure on Atari and the other stiffs at SS that haven't done anything. He could actually start without injury or mishap at the position.
      Newhouse = WTF. Jamon Meredith was 10 times the selection of this kid. Maybe because they're going to more power sets they want their back-ups to be 320 pounds. This is a pick that looks headed to the practice squad. Jamon Meredith didn't make the club last year and he was three times the prospect of this kid. Again, given how terrible Barbre was, and that Clifton and Taush both have had injury concerns, a hedge pick. Terrible value IMO.
      Thats kind of my impression as well. I hope it doesn't come back to haunt us, as seeing the last time we started to compete we traded back and started to draft depth.

      As far as Newhouse, he seems risky and needs development but he's your typical versitile Packers pick. If he can play LG/RT or be a descent backup I'll be happy. If he can control his weight I'm wondering if he could potentially be a center prospect as well.

      • TE Coach McAdoo said they had Quarless timed at a 4.58 40 at his pro day if I'm recalling correctly. There is some big playmaking ability here as long as he keeps his head on straight

        a 2 TE set with him and Finley would be pretty beastly...not even mentioning the WR corps as deep as it is

            154 -- Packers -- TE Andrew Quarless

            We are at the point in the draft now where teams will begin to take chances on talent. Quarless is a gifted TE with size, speed and very good hands. He spent most of his career in Joe Paterno's dog house before breaking out his senior year with 41 receptions. Put the tape on against Michigan if you doubt his value as a verticle receiver. If he blocks better, and works harder, he's a starter in the NFL.

            Hate the last line: IF he blocks better and works harder... Ug. Glad he's a vertical threat, and maybe he'll respond to the pro-game and having a job rather than fighting for JoPa.
            The pain fades and the good memories will remain.

            • We have a shot at Warren with our 6th i hope we take it... That would make me very happy

              • In his radio interview just a bit ago with some Green Bay press, Quarless said he hasn't had a drink since the night of his DUI over 2 years ago. He went to college at age 17, so I chalk that up to being "young and stupid."

                He also said immediately after it happened he went straight to Joe Paterno's house, sat down with him, and rededicated his life to the game of football. He said the thought of not being able to play the game he loves was something he could never imagine.

                Not a need at all...But I guess TT had a reason for taking him. We'll see. You can't deny his measurables and talent. I'm still bummed they haven't drafted a LB or KR/PR specialist.

                  We don't need a CB with a safties speed.

                      Well if we suffer injuries to 3-4 CBs again then we'll talk. I didn't say don't take a CB, just don't take a CB that translates to safety in the NFL.

                            Well it looks like TT is fine with CB and OLB that all of us thought we had weaknesses at.... Interesting

                            • RB in the 6th a good place to get one. I'm surprised this is the first non-BCS kid TT has drafted today. I'd love to see the Packers' draft board as outside of Bulaga and Burnett, these picks are a couple rounds ahead of where they are on the public boards. TT marches tot he beat of his own drummer. Still no CB...

                                I was wondering that too. Seems like he did guys who he thought were going in rounds 1-4 and said F-it to the rest.
