Click here for the full list of Packer draft picks. Initial thoughts:
- Glad we picked up an OLB, a DT, a CB and a DE. We do have depth on our D – but we have room for improvement w/respect to quality. We do need numbers especially along the D-Line so taking a DT and a DE in particular makes sense.
- I like Davon House mostly because there will be fan chaos if he returns a pick for a TD…taking it to the____.
- I did find it curious that we took 2 TEs. One of them, as the link above indicates, will probably be used more for special teams if they both make the team.
- DE Rick Elmore has an interesting name for a guy nowadays. Rick. Seems like an 80’s flashback pick.
- I really like what I’ve read about Alexander Green’s pass catching ability. I stand well-opposed in my opinion that we need to upgrade at #3 RB. Jackson has brought quality blocking and good pass-catching and I really like his attitude. But I still think we can improve at the #3 RB and this Green guy looks good.
- I like getting a return guy. It bothered me every time Williams, Woodson or even Jordy would go back for a kick/punt. Those guys weren’t ever really that good at returning and it always just seemed that we were taking on unnecessary risks by putting them back there.
- I like that we picked up a highly rated OT and an OG with big upside and a great name (Schlauderaff).
