35 hours away as I post this...it's draft time!  I don't know about you, but I get excited for the draft.

Do the Packers pick a DB?  An edge rusher? A WR? or maybe...an OT?

I am holding out hope that the Packers can select Edmunds from VT, but it looks unlikely, so maybe a guy like Davenport (raw, but man does he have measurables)

The other guy I like is Derwin James.

Davenport seems to be the popular pick. There's a lot of spots I'd be ok with them picking, including OLB, CB, WR. I've seen some suggest a safety or running back, but those don't seem to be as big of need areas as the above.

I guess I'll say Davenport or maybe the BC OLB.

Jackson's combine performance worries me a little.  He looked stiff in the hips and he dropped too many balls.  I don't know if he is a top 15 pick.  What I do like about him is his competitiveness on the field and he has a strong work ethic, but at the 14th spot, he might be a reach.

He ran well at the combine, 4.48 40, and had a 38 inch vertical leap. He has good size as well, which I think the Packers want.

Derwin James if they move up with those 12 picks , Denzel Ward if he drops  because the qbs are picked .

Surprise Pick - Quinten Nelson drops and Green Bay has the choice between defense and protecting the franchise .

I just hope the Packers don't reach on a prospect because of need.  Let's be honest, there are many positions that the Packers can improve on.  They could use an OL, a WR, Edge rusher, ILB, DB's (please don't force a safety to play corner), and TE.  At the D Line, they seem pretty well set there.  Running backs, based on last year, seem to be good too.  In my opinion, getting a consistent pass rush is the key to success.  The secondary can only cover so long if there is no pass rush.  Also, this draft seems deep at the corner position.  I like the Oliver kid from Colorado in the second round as CB prospect.

I think the Packers will trade up to #10(Oakland's pick) if any of these three are still on the board.

1) Denzel Ward
2) Derwin James
3) Minkah Fitzpatrick

If the Packers draft a safety I swear I might freak out. What the hell did they draft Jones for if they're going to pick another one early this year? Especially with huge holes in so many other areas of the defense.

I guess if they do, it might be an indication of how confident they are in Jones' ability to play safety.  The other thing is that maybe with the regime change, both in the front office and the new DC on the coaching staff, maybe they feel that Jones was not a good pick?  I don't know.  The other thought that I read about is that they might transition Jones into an ILB.
If Derwin James is available, I say take him.  He is a stud.  The Packers secondary has not been the same since Collins was injured and maybe James can fill that void.

I'm pretty disappointed right now.  We had a shot at James or Edmunds and passed it up.  Both are impact players they usually never have a shot to draft. The New Orleans first round pick will be a late 20's or 30's pick, they should be very good.

I don't understand the thinking about this trade.  Giving up impact players...for what?  It seems like same shhh, different GM

Looks to me like Green Bay is working a late first very early 2nd... Green Bay and New England do it better than anyone , the best linbackers and receivers are still on the board .

The Packers trade with Seattle for the 18th pick.  

Selection: Jaire Alexander, Cornerback(Louisville).
