Thanks for posting that , Mark , interesting read. While I am far from being an expert , the one thing I can guarantee is that just like every other year that Teddy has been at the helm , there will be a pick he makes during the Draft where everybody in Packer Nation will go " WHO "  ??????  Never heard of him !!!

Looks about right to me.

Kendricks is the safe pick.  If he's there most likely Thompson will pick him.

Only way he doesn't is if a top 15 guy falls.  Like a Bud Dupree for example.

Other option for addressing linebacker is go with an outside guy.  Could see it as

Perry Peppers may not be back after next year.

The draft is always dramatic.  There will be more than one kid drafted by some team that will cause everyone to scramble and scratch their heads.  I must say we've all been mocked to death and the draft can't come soon enough.

Very cool post!  I'm sure it took you some time to do it as well. 

It would be super cool to see the 2nd and 3rd highest rated options for each team as well. 



I'm right and everyone else does not have an opinion worth talking about.
