    I think TT is done with free agency. Glaring needs are corner,running back and guard.I think TT won’t draft a running back in the first round. There’s a lot of talk of T.J Watt in the first and he’s my pick. He won’t be there for us if we wait until a later round.Several EDGE rushers are picked to go before him and let’s face it every team is looking for one.With a draft class loaded with talent at defensive backs there will be talented players in round two and three. Ted has been very good at finding diamonds in the rough at offensive linemen. This draft is just what the doctor ordered for Packer fans. I am not losing faith in the powers at be to bring quality young talent to fill out our roster.

      Lets just hope QB needy teams take QB’s in the 1st round. When / if that happens it leaves the Packers that many more options. My guess is the Packers should be able to draft the BPA and address need, just like 2014.

        I agree. I forgot to mention DL. With Pennel gone and Guion suspended again for the first four weeks Clark doesn’t have much help behind him.I think there will be help in the fourth and fifth rounds at DL and that’s where TT has been known to shine.Baktiari and Linsley were fourth and fifth rounders.

    This hurts coming from a life long Packers fan but the packers won’t win more than 6 games this year. Mark my words.

    What do you think about my mock draft for the Pack?

    Rd 1 TJ Watt – OLB – Wisconsin
    Rd 2 Kevin King – CB – Washington (Trade Hundley for Cleveland’s 2nd Rd pick)
    Rd 2 Tanoh Kpassagnon – DE – Villanova
    Rd 3 Taylor Moton – OT/G – Western Michigan
    Rd 4 Vince Biegel – OLB – sWisconsin
    Rd 5 Brian Hill – RB – Wyoming
    Rd 5 Stacey Coley – WR – Miami
    Rd 6 Joe Williams – RB – Utah
    Rd 7 Chuck Clark – CB – Virginia Tech

      I like it. I like Fabian Moreau,corner back from UCLA. TT seems to like UCLA players. As for Fred saying we’ll only win six games,I hope he’ll change his mind once the season starts. I see two starters coming from this draft or maybe more. This is the most talented draft class in years.

      I wouldn’t suppose you’re a Badgers fan, are you? 😉

        I’m a Packers fan for over 50 years and never lived a day in Wisconsin. I fell in love with the Pack as a teenager and Ray Nitchke was my favorite player. Where I’m from I’m supposed to be an Eagles fan. That’s never going to happen. GO PACK GO!!!.

    Packers fans–DON’T be surprised if this Packers team FAILS to make playoffs this year. Currently they’ve lost two of the three LB’s that were FA’s and saw extensive playing time the past couple of seasons in Jones and Peppers. They’ve lost their best DB, the only player in backfield that had SPEED to match any receiver in NFL, Sam Shields will be hard to replace and Davon House ain’t the answer. He’s not likely to make much difference in the league’s WORST secondary. They don’t have a starting RB–and forget about Thompson drafting Christian McCaffrey–he AIN’T drafting an RB in first round with so many holes in DEFENSE. They’re short on D-line depth, LB depth, and quality DB’s. D-E-F-E-N-S-E has been the single problem with Packers making a SB run for SIX CONSECUTIVE years–and Thompson just handed DUMB Capers a WORSE defense than last year’s pathetic unit. Yeah–Thompson signed two TE’s–TE’s DON’T PLAY DEFENSE!! He allowed two of team’s BEST linemen to leave and signed Barclay–who would be CUT by any other team! He doesn’t have a starting RB with experience to lead the run game unless Packers resign Christine Michael and no matter the production Aaron Rodgers can generate–he has probably the team’s WORST defense in six years to protect any lead. Never expected Thompson to settle for LESS, Packers fans, this team is LESS the team than last year’s–silver lining at END of this season–Ted Thompson and DUMB Capers will FINALLY, GET THE AXE when this Packers teams FAILS to make a playoff game.

        Jersey Al–stats for SIX consecutive playoff seasons PROVE Capers defense AVERAGED giving up more POINTS per playoff run, more TOTAL yds, more PASSING yds and more RUN yds over those six years than Rodgers/McCarthy offense could generate–that’s LOSING football and that’s what happened. Ya’ really think Thompson’s helped Capers this season? Capers didn’t need any help losing but Thompson just made it harder to win. They needed Vikings to collapse to make a playoff last year, looks like Packers have collapsed before the season’s started. DEFENSE has knocked them out of playoffs every season, it’s just got a lot worse and the draft’s NOT gonna fix the problem.

        mostly true, but my comment stands.

      I agree with you Barclay should be gone. I do think we’ll replace Lang in the draft. Sitton is gone and the OL didn’t fall apart. Bakhtiari was a fourth round pick who won the LT job in training camp and hasn’t skipped a beat.As for a complimentary back with Ty this draft has plenty of choices. This is the richest draft of corner backs in years. The NFL draft goes in cycles and this year it’s secondary loaded with talent and this is where the Packers need the most help.McCarthy is going nowhere right now and YES Capers should retire. Your beating the loudest drum for his removal,but never have an idea who should take his place. Your not alone that’s all I’m hearing about our defensive coaching staff I would just like to hear who you think is a viable replacement and in the mean time I choose to stay positive not because I’m that naive but because I believe we are a draft and develop team picking 29th in the draft and think the players are there in this draft to fix our secondary and running game. Our defense early last year had 15 and a half sacks in the first four games and when our secondary became decimated with injuries our ranking slowly went in the toilet. The last four games of the season though we had 14 and a half sacks in the last four games.I’m finished defending my team for now I’m sure I’ll hear back from you.
