Packers Draft Preview

NFL fans your fix comes tomorrow with the NFL Draft taking over the weekend. What will Ted Thompson do this year? Sizzlin' Ted has had some hot picks such as Greg Jennings, Aaron Rodgers, and James Jones. However, Thompson has missed on a few major need areas such as Justin Harrell, AJ Hawk, Aaron Rouse, and Tony Moll.

With the Packers switching to the 3-4 defense, Dom Capers should be hoping for a defensive player with the ninth overall selection. If Ted Thompson decides to pick "best available" and go with an offensive player Kevin Greene should body slam him. This needs to be a defensive draft for the Green Bay Packers.


What are the experts predicting? It seems that anything can happen in the top ten this year with teams wanting to move up or move down.

Jay Glazer,
Packers at #9: Virginia T Eugene Monroe

Pat Kirwan,
Packers at #9: Texas LB Brian Orakpo

Don Banks,
Packers at #9: LSU DE Tyson Jackson

Bucky Brooks,
Packers at #9: Texas LB Brian Orakpo

Walter Cherepinsky,
Packers at #9: LSU DE Tyson Jackson

I'm not quite sure what Ted Thompson will do, but Packer fans better hope for defense. If Capers doesn't get 3-4 type players this weekend, looks for Adrian Peterson and Matt Forte run all over the Packers this season. The Packers need a dominant nose tackle, and Boston DT B.J. Raji is my pick.
