In general it's a weak class but the Packers can upgrade with Adalius Thomas if they could bring him in otherwise they'll have to look at trades to bring in any names such as Randy Moss or wait until the draft comes becuase there isn't much

I don't really think so, he's too inconsistent for my liking in the passing game. I think he's great at what he is right now, a 2nd TE option. I think we need to get a TE who can really help us in the passing game, we already have TE's who can block.

I read on a website that likened him to a glorified tackle but they also said he got lost in the passing game because Ben Watson is such a great pass catcher.

I wouldn't say that but I was just questioning his ability to be the TE the packers need.

so what about Jamal Lewis, since he is now a free agent, i know he does not fit the system. but maybe it will be a FA that takes over our starting RB position

I think RB can be addressed in the draft maybe 3rd round.

Id rather have lynch in the 1st and maby sighning green too, having 2 good backs would be awsome.

Having watched Graham in college (I went to CU) and the NFL I can say its not that he has hands of stone. He has very soft hands and catches the ball very well.

The thing with him is 2-fold:

1) He is slow. He will never stretch the field and thus is not a true receiving threat long distance (but he is very savy and good in the red zone)

2) He blocks so well that New England pretty much kept him in as a blocker and let Watson be the receiving threat.

I wouldn't mind seeing him in Green and Gold. He would be an upgrade from Bubba for sure just not a down-the-field threat.

After the Combine, I'm really starting to prefer either Olsen or Landry at 16. Either player will come in and make a difference right away. Olsen could challenge franks/martin for the starting job and with as fast as Olsen is, he could be used in the slot too. Landry could take the job about from MM in a heartbeat. He fast and explosive and can cover unlike Manuel.

As for Free Agency, I think AT would be amazing but it seems like he's either going to cleveland or San Fran. I doubt he would go to cleveland because well...it's Cleveland. San Fran is probably where he will end up unless TT throws some serious $ at him, which he did with Woodson.

I still say Michael Bush would be amazing and if he's there in the 2nd round, the Packers would be foolish not to take him. In that Kentucky game before he got hurt, he ran over some people and then put it into another gear. This guy could have been the Heisman winner if he had not been hurt. I would be willing to take a chance on this guy in the 2nd because he should be going in to top 15 if not for his injury.

I'm I the only one who still really wants Lynch with our first rounder? I think that we shouldn't settle for a average RB for a few years, i.e Green. RB is arguably the most important position in the offense for certain teams. Remember the days when Ahman was getting 1500+ rushing yards and how good our offense was. Even back then we had below average receivers. Drafting a TE in the first round will help, but it wouldn't solve our offensive woes. Drafting a back like Lynch would durastically improve our offense. With our improving OL and a RB perfect for our system, who I feel will be able to make an immediate impact in the NFL, we would be able to establish a good running game. In turn that would open up our passing game a little too if we use play action.

Young RB's have been pretty succesful in the NFL the last few years and some of them have become the face of their respective teams. I think that once Favre leaves Lynch would be able to take over that role of the playmaker on offense and it would really help Rodgers with his transition to becoming a starter.

People still like Lynch but a premiere back is not a necessity for the ZBS and the Packers have other needs

A premier back may not be a neccesity for a ZBS, but it would sure help. Look at Ahman Green's numbers last year they were average at best. If you put a premier back in to the system you're gonna get more production. I understand that the pack have other need's it's just that the offense hasn't been the same since our running game was good. We need to reastiblish the run and getting Lynch will do it. The team's defense is improving IMO, they have enough talented players to be a pretty good D. While the offense is what's holding us back, we need to be able to rely on our offense to put up points. Without an establish run game, and some average RB, it ain't gonna happen.

Well, yes it would help, but if he's not there it won't be the end of the world for Packers fans
