Here's the Packers draft. Overall I'm satisfied. The value of the first half of the draft is effin' insane. Only pick I'm not too terribly pumped about was Omar Bolden considering some of the other talent that could have been had at that spot. He's an ideal fit in Dom's coverage scheme, though, so there he is. I doubt Ted Thompson would ever take my "problem" picks of Irvin and Loiseau seriously, but that's his problem, not mine. All I'm doing is acquiring the talent. The locker room of choir boys in a tiny city will definitely do those players some good.
1) Michael Brockers, DE, LSU
2) Jared Crick, DE, Nebraska
3) Bruce Irvin, OLB, West Virginia
4) Quentin Saulsberry, C, Mississippi State
5) Omar Bolden, CB, Arizona State
6) Markus Zusevics, OT, Iowa
7a) Chandler Harnish, QB, Northern Illinois
7b) Jeremy Lane, CB, Northwestern St
7c) Shawn Loiseau, ILB, Merrimack
7d) Daryl Richardson, RB, Abilene Christian
Saulsberry ended up being a really sexy pick. He'll fill out the interior line depth on the Packers very nicely until Saturday's broke dick is ready to retire. I wanted Austin Davis, but Harnish will do just fine as the next in the long line of outstanding Packer backups. I'm excited about Lane, and Loiseau and Richardson were total 7th round fliers, which sometimes you just gotta do.
I see this draft fulfilling the two KEY needs for the team: Solidify depth at thin positions and get younger, faster, bigger, and stronger on the defensive line. I would have spread out the defensive line picks some since this is such a deep draft for the position, but I simply couldn't pass on both Brockers and Crick. They're EXACTLY who the Packers needed, and they came at the perfect price. Nothing wrong with perfection.
