Wow, you guys have a quite a bromance going... Good talk.
eric, I love Pugh, but I doubt we're drafting a T early. You look at the teams we struggle with (and our schedule) and they run the football. We need depth in our Dline rotation, and we could use a good LB for the same reason. I was just suggesting that a LB may be the best player on the board at 26, though Pugh is very tempting because at his size and mobility he could also play guard. I get the feeling they are feeling OK about their tackles, even though we fans aren't. One of the better corners will probably be on the board at that pick too--though that's where INDY might pounce just ahead of us. Or MN. If Marcus Truffaunt slipped to there... He's the best of the brothers. The Jets will take either Millner or Rhodes (the latter would be my guess). The Saints or Bengals will possibly grab the other.
All the pundits are talking S to replace Woodson, but I feel like they've drafted several the last two years. We've got 5 guys who are 25 or younger at that position. I think Jenkins is a good pick (suggested him awhile back). You know my feelings about Lacy (he's no AP) and you can draft good ones later.
I agree we'll take a WR at some point. I believe in Jarrett Boykin and I think they do too. I don't worry about having Jody Nelson and James Jones as WR. A lot of teams would like to have them. It's just injuries that concern me. Jennings and Nelson were out last year and that definitely hurt our production.
Jenkins would be solid as well for sure!Clearly GB has to get bigger and more physical on the defensive line and on the oline would be nice as well.Raji is good there,we need a DE who can pass rush..Im hoping Nick Perry will really help,he was improving game by game until he got injured so hopefully he picks up where he left off improving. I think Desmond Bishop is the Wild Card in this whole thing.We need to get tougher,physical and get a hitter and Bishop is one and if hes healthy,that improves the ILB position considerably! Terrell Manning was solid and looked like the real deal but being sick in camp cost him during the season i believe but he can contribute nicely as well.

Here's my completely uneducated idea of how the first round is going to go, and I am not even going to predict who the Packers pick except that it will NOT be Lacy.

It all depends on where Geno Smith goes. Why? Because Buffalo is a huge wild card in this draft as they need a QB in a bad way. Kevin Kolb is not the answer, and they know it.

If Geno Smith slips to #8, then the Bills draft him and it's business as usual. However... if he goes before Buffalo picks (either Jacksonville or Philadelphia are likely), then I guarantee that the Bills GM will panic starting around pick 23 or so and start talking trade so they can get one of the next group of QBs (none of which are worthy of a first round pick in my mind). And that is going to start an avalanche of trades where the next 3 QBs (Manuel, Barkley, Nassib, etc) may go off the board in short order before the first round is over.

This will push everyone else down a few picks, pushing Lacy into the second round (among others) and I will bet that the Packers are going to listen to any trade offers. Hell, I'd take Buffalo's second and third rounders for the Packers first rounder in a heartbeat (it's actually a pretty equitable trade points wise). Or, the Packers will get a player that wasn't supposed to slip to them, and it won't be Lacy.

I'm still hoping that Arthur Brown drops to the Packers, but it's not sounding like Cincinnati will let him go by if the Bears don't pick him.

I'm with eric on the interior line picks early, unless somebody drops in our lap. Buffalo might take Smith or someone else, but I don't anticipate the QB feeding frenzy describe above. Philly has other needs, 2 QBs who can play, and there are much better football players they can take early. Jacksonville has too many holes to draft a QB that early and pass on a superior football player. They don't need another project behind center, they've got 2 already and none of these guys looks like a sure thing.
Now you may see some movement down in the bottom of the round as the teams at the top of the second (Cardinals) jockey to get ahead of the others. They spent a lot of time looking at Barkley. EJ Manuel and Tyler Wilson look more like pro QBs to me.
IF we are taking a center, then we could trade back and probably take anyone we wanted early in the 2nd. I suspect they will not. I'd guess NT, DE or LB, depending on who's on the board. I think Arthur Brown will be there, but I doubt we take him. We're taking someone like Jesse Williams.
Zac Dysert of Miami (OH) would be a good late QB pick (7th round). Seen him play well here against PSU a couple of times.
