Hopefully with the 32nd pick in the first round the repeating SuperBowl Champions Green Bay Packers select:
Ryan Tannehill QB Texas A&M – He looks, acts, throws, and moves on the field like Aaron Rodgers did at Cal. He is a perfect developmental pick that can sit for 3 years and learn the system and step in when needed, much like Flynn did. Besides being groomed as a starter in waiting he may develop into an important tradable asset in year 4. Look at the Kolb, Schaub, and Palmer deals. With the rookie wages more locked in this is a great place to select a top QB and allow Green Bay to still only carry 2 QBs on the roster.
Josh Chapman NT/DT Alabama. He is a successful senior NT that plays in a 3-4 defense and is amazing against the run as well as dealing with double and even triple blocking by opposing offensive lines. He is a very good player that can reduce the load on Pickett and eventually take his spot when Pickett retires or moves on.
Aaron Henry FS Wisconsin. He is playing like a beast and is charging up my draft board. Fifth rounder now looks to just squeak into the third round as Green Bay can get a great Nick Collins like rookie and keep a Wisconsin player in state.
Jacquies Smith DE/OLB Missouri. An amazing player that due to a slight injury should hopefully last until Green bay picks him in the fourth round. He is a player that will challenge Zombo and Walden on day one as an OLB for Green Bay.
The trend at drafting amazing TE continue as Green Bay brings in one of the best TEs that no one outside of scouts has heard of. I mentioned him during the Lockout in May as a player to keep tabs on. Ladarius Green TE from Louisiana – Lafayette. 6-6 240lbs runs in the 4.59 range. He will be looking to take the place of a possibly departing Free Agent Finley for Green Bay. He has the size and speed mismatch that McCarthy likes to have especially against the cover 2 defense that is played heavily against Green bay.
I expect TT to still draft best available but here are some players to keep tabs on when you watch college games and especially when bowl time comes. Go Pack Go!!
