Nice Silverstein article on the draft


From today’s jsonline, Silverstein has an interesting look at (and explanation for) why the Packers use their 30 prospect visits for later round/free agent type prospects. After reading through this list of lower profile guys, I have to admit, I am reminded that in any draft, sorting through such a huge number of prospects really is a daunting task. And while I contend that TT is somewhat mediocre at drafting, I want to make sure I stop short of making it seem like I think his job on draft day is an easy one. It’s not. There is so much to consider and so many different directions the draft can go at any second. In the end, I’m just hoping this year that we land at least 2-3 high quality guys who can help in 2009.
