The Packers have huge holes on defense. Just a year removed from the the most talented starters and deepest positions across the board in the league, they let Cullen Jenkins go and suffered injuries all across the defensive line. Ryan Pickett's old, but still reliable, and BJ Raji is there to rotate depending on the situation, but the Packers really missed out on that premier force that was probably the best 3-4 DE in the NFL in 2010. Mike Neal is not that guy. Packers fans conjure up images of Justin Harrell when they look at Neal.
Driver's getting old. On the line Wells might leave (he's likely to get re-signed, but still), Chad Clifton is an old ****, and Derek Sherrod's brief NFL career may be over. His leg exploded in a million pieces. Bulaga and Newhouse are solid, but an extra tackle might not be out of the question. Lastly, that RB position still wasn't fixed with Alex Greene out for the year; it appears he's another failed Brandon Jackson experiment. And the Packers have to do something to grow out the depth at CB.
But right now you take the most talented player at the biggest position of need. Luckily that guy is here.
The Green Bay Packers select Michael Brockers, DT/DE, LSU
