With all that said, I think Lynch is the pick.
    CB in the first would be stupid. We just signed a guy who will compete to be #3(Frank Walker) w/ Patrick Dendy. Woodson and Harris played great this year. CB shouldnt show up till early day 2

      If they could secondary it would be a safety because there is no reason to take a 1st round corner with Harris and Woodson. I really don't know where you think Greg Olsen is a project b/c he's always had the physical ability but the QB play at Miami has absolutely sucked since he had gotten there. I would go Olsen and help out that offense.

        Dwayne Jarrett will be the pick then, I believe.

Olsen makes a lot of sense for GB, but you guys seem to be against it.

          Toss Up: Greg Olsen or Robert Meachem at 16? All things aside, just answer the question.
          Olsen easily. We're not as bad at WR as everybody makes us out to be, and I don't think it's something we need to address in the 1st. Basically all we need is a speed guy to stretch the defense.

          I think Olsen is pretty much on par with the Miami TE's that have come out recently and would make the biggest impact on our offense. I actually think he may be a bit underrated because of the terrible QB's he played with. His athleticism, speed, and hands are right their with Shockey & Winslow and he may even be a better blocker than both of them.

          This is all if Lynch and Landry are off the board of course....

            I have read nowhere where Green Bay is interested in Olsen, and you have to remember that Green Bay has already had a issue with Olsen's agent with another receiving threat.

              I would want Olsen at 16 if Lynch and Landry are gone. I would rather not take a receiver in the first, unless we trade down.

                  Both guys are over 30. Corners are not long for this world. Not to mention that Woodson probably projects to safety better.

                  As for Frank Walker (previous post) I'd answer that but I haven't gotten up off the floor from laughing yet.

                  Olsen is a project because what is he? He's not a pure tight-end and I think anyone that tries to use him as such will do so at their own peril. It's actually unfortunate (well not for me cause I don't like the Packers) that they got rid of David Martin because he would be a good person to pair with Olsen. I don't think he can block in the box and they will need to find creative ways to get him off the line because most DE's could probably knock him on his ass as soon as the play starts.


                  Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                    Im hopeing we dont use Olsen to block and keep Bubba for that reason. Im not saying we wont draft a CB, but I think it can wait till day 2.

                      If we draft Olsen it would be for him to be an intrigual part of the passing game

                        I am an Olsen fan. He posted solid numbers in college with a mediocre QB. He's not a great blocker, but it's easier to teach blocking than it is to teach speed and catching, which Olsen does well. I like Olsen at #16 a lot, though I've seen plenty of mocks where he goes a couple selections in front of the Packers. A number of Packers fans think that Bubba and crew can get better, which is a good thought as the TE spot was terrible last year so getting better likely just due to default.

                        I am not for any of this crop of WRs at 16 anymore, unless it's CJ. If they could trade down and get Bowe or Jarrett, fine. I think WR is deep enough that they could get some guys in later rounds, which TT has a proven track record of doing.

                        I think the value is better for a safety, or see if a CB fell. Laron Landry and Reggie Nelson are solid (or steals and Landry probably won't be there). Okoye likely to not be there. I'm not really all that excited about the middle selections for the Packers with regards to value at #16. I also like Adam Carriker to solidify the line, but he could be gone as well.

                        My mock posted in the Team Mocks:
                        Round One:
                        R1: Greg Olsen, Tight End, Miami
                        R2: Antonio Pittman, Running Back, Ohio St.
                        R3: John Wendling, Safety, Wyoming
                        R4: Jacoby Jones, Wide Receiver, Lane
                        R5: Travarous Bain, Corner Back, Hampton
                        R6: Andy Alleman, Offensive Guard, Akron
                        R7: Courtney Brown, Corner Back, Cal Poly
                        R7: Legedu Naanee, Wide Receiver, Boise St.
                        R7: Isaiah Stanback, Quarter Back (WR), Washington

                        So there's a Packers mock with Olsen and Pittman, filling need areas with players of good value.
                        The pain fades and the good memories will remain.

                          If the Packers take Antonio Pittman I will shake my fist vigorously in the air. You already took A.J Hawk. Stop taking all my favorite Buckeyes!! Take Ted Ginn Jr. Hell take Troy Smith.

                            Are you saying that martin can block? Because if he can i have not seen it.
