Oliver or Burns at 12.

A little radical but unstoppable offense with OT and RB taken in 3rd and 4th....draft Hock and Fant in round 1. Hock TE and Fant hybrid slot/TE. 6'5" and 250 lbs running a 4.5 in 40 bench pressing 225 lbs 20 times while jumping close to 40" Fant would be unstoppable creating mismatches moving him anywhere on field. Rodgers and defense would love this move. Defense more time off field resting.

Let's do it Gute! Packers forever!

I think I saw at least four of those names in a "draft risers" article I read this morning.

Butler is the real deal. He was torching teams this year.

Very nice run down sir.

I know you're avoiding tagging positions, but the break-down just reinforced my feeling that the Packers would be well served by investing a first round pick at the TE position.

10 draft picks, top 10 needs for this and next year:

- safety (to start this year)
- TE (to play a lot starting next year)
- corner (to back up this year)
- OG (to back up this year, maybe start next year)
- OT (to back up this year and start next year)
- 3rd RB (to play some this year)
- iDL (to potentially start or back up next year)
- ILB (to play next year?)
- 5-tech (to start next year)
- EDGE/OLB (developmental to back up next year)

This was really done well. I believe you covered every base.

Great breakdown of the future needs. It will be interesting to compare this information to the Packer roster post draft to see if Gute came to similar conclusions.
