    Love the pick. Dez Bryant was tempting...just like Crabtree was last year, but the offense already is stacked with weapons, and what good is a Dez Bryant when Rodgers is on his butt all the time, or worse, injured

    you win games at the LOS. Now they can focus on D in round 2, perhaps even move up. Lots of quality names left

      A new day, and I feel even better about Bulaga than I did yesterday. Such an amazing blend of need, prospect talent, prototype, value falling into our laps is absolutely phenomenal. I'd be knocking on my wood desk right now if I was superstitious...Bulaga is one of the most sure things in the entire draft. Absolutely worst case scenario, he's a good right tackle or guard, and we got the Cadillac of insurance plans for our offensive line right now and by extension Aaron Rodgers.

      I'm ecstatic because I have real confidence that 4 pieces of our offensive line are set for the future. Bulaga, Lang, Sitton could all end up growing together and being good individually, great as a unit, and I'm not worried about center with Spitz and Wells both proving to be adequate at worst.

        Like many have said Bulaga is not a sexy pick but a great one nonetheless. Its the type of pick in many years we will look back as one of TT's bests. The guy is an absolute force in the running game, on tape you can see him embarrass players outhere, which explains why some think he would make a pro bowl guard. He moves very well and hes a perfect fit for the ZBS. His great feet and brute strength makes him a very good candidate for the tackle spot also. Pouncey and Bulaga were probably the most versatile OL in this draft.

          Me too but Bulaga was a much bigger need. We need to protect the face of the franchise and most likely the next NFL QB star...

            I'm holding on to an unrealistic hope that we somehow end up with Kindle (my favorite 3-4 OLB in the draft) or Mays today.

            I also wouldn't mind Bruce Campbell, Rodger Safford or Charles Brown. If we land one of those guys we have officially fixed our biggest problem last year.

            Other guys I like for today, no particular order: Brandon Ghee, Golden Tate, Koa Misi, Dexter McCluster, Morgan Burnett, Joe McKnight.

              Update: Apparently Kindle has horrible, horrible knees (no cartilage, bone on bone) which explains the fall. Assuming that's true I wouldn't trade up for him, but I'd give him some consideration at our pick. I would probably take most of the guys listed in my last post over him.

                Of course you're not happy with the Bulaga pick, it's no a sexy pick.

                  It's not because of sexy. It's because I want our current team to get better, starting with the starters, and our current team already has a great offense.
                  Our current team scored 45 points in the playoff game and it wasn't good enough.
                  Now if you tell me that TT has taken free agency to fill some of those pass defense holes, then I am fine with taking the hopeful future LT that we need. But you know damn well TT hasn't added anyone to our defense that didnt' so much as sniff Warner or Favre, two times.

                  Our other team weakness is special teams, and at least Dez Bryant would have upgraded that phase instantly, as well as being a great WR to take over for Driver. Jordy and Jones are no more than a solid #3 WR in this league.

                  Look, if cvv84 said we're going to regret passing on Dez Bryant, you know it's indisputable. And if I agree with him, then it's going to be like watching Randy Moss from 1998-2004.

                  The bottom line is this team is close, and I want to add 2-3 impact players at our weak positions. Bulaga might help a lot down the road, but this team right now is so good but just missing the pass defense. We all saw it. I'm beginning to think that it was so traumatic, that some of you forgot all about the Viking games, the Steeler game, and the Cardinals playoff loss. Our pass defense was Lion-like in those 4 games! Bulaga doesn't help that, nor does being allergic to free agency.

                  But John Clayton really likes our pick, so it must have been a good one. :)

                    I am so pumped about the bulaga pick, I was calling for him back in october, I really did not think he would ever reach the Packers. Easy, no brainer pick for TT. This guy will be the ultimate back-up this year, although after listening to TT's press conference he made a mention of trading players with picks to move up. I am wondering if the Packers trade a guy like colledge or spitz and move up in the 2nd round.

                    Now get a safety or cb in round 2 and it looks like the Packers will have a solid draft.

                      Our "current" team is one ankle roll away from Lang at LT or Barber at RT again.We've all seen how "our" offense plays when that is the case.
                      Everything I've ever seen you mention around here is about sexy or flashy pickups. I don't care how cliche it is...everything starts in the trenches.

                        Bulaga could start at guard from day 1, and maybe he won't have an instant impact on the field...But he will be right there lighting a fire under the current starter's rear-ends.

                        As a fan I wanted WR/RB/OLB, but when a possible OT-top-10-talent lands at #23, you draft him. But yes, Dez Bryant would have been awesome...

                          I like Bulaga and he WAS the smart pick, but I think Bryant is going to be a prolific WR. Not Randy Moss but something a little less than Fitzgerald. We have alot of talented WRs though imagining Jennings, Bryant, and Finley as our weapons gives me chills.

                            Knowing that I'm glad we passed on him in the 1st round. However if we got him in the 2nd I'd be estatic.

                            Bulaga went from late 1st to top 10 and finally back to the late 1st. We got a young, talented kid and a future LT or RT to protect one of, if not the, best young QBs in the league. We're set with Sitton and Bulaga so if Lang can solidify a spot we're going to be in good shape for the future.

                              Bulaga should start at right tackle at day one. He shouldn't even be practicing at guard. Between Wells, Spitz, Lang, Sitton, and Colledge the three interior spots can be filled for now and the future. Bulaga can start off at right tackle replacing Tauscher immediately, and then move over to the left side next year.

                                I agree. Clifton, Lang, Spitz, Sitton, Bulaga looks pretty legit.
