Take your pick of any current NFL player for the Packers
« on: January 20, 2018, 06:07:57 PM »
 if you had your pick of any NFL player to add to this Packer team, who would it be? The only criteria is it has to be a current player at the current state of their career.
 
As much as I would be tempted to add to the defense, for me it would have to be Antonio Brown. I know he has been dinged up throughout his career, but he is virtually unstoppable, and it wou!d give AR one of the most explosive game breaking wideouts in NFL history.

if JJ Watt would not have had some serious injury concerns the last few seasons, it wou!d have made the decision much tougher for me

I just don't believe any other defender would make as much of an impact for the team as adding Brown to the AR lead offense would.

Mine might be Jalen Ramsey, 23 year old shut down corner.  I'm not a fan of his mouth, but he comes to play ball.

This is a tough won...but I would pick  Rob Gronkowski.  Even though he is injury prone having him team up with Rodgers and our past wide receivers I think the Lombardi trophy would have been more then just one during the AR era.

Aaron Donald. Give Rodgers his Reggie White to help him get to a few more SB's.

Mack.....or maybe Clowney. They would make a difference.

For me I would like Ramsey or Lattimore from New Orleans, young  shut down corners that also tackle! Brown from the Steelers would be very tempting.  The defence just needs too much help, so give me a shout down corner!

I'd go Julio Jones.  Best receiver in the NFL.

Could go a couple different directions with this.  IMO, the single most valuable player in the NFL right now is Carson Wentz.  A MVP caliber QB in just his second year in the NFL.  Him being on his rookie deal affords some significant upgrades in other positions.

Seeing that we've got AR12 and I've got no interest in giving him up.... I'd go defense.  I'd pick Joey Bosa.  Would have been a hard choice between him, Myles Garrett and Ramsey.  IMO, you can get away with less talent at CB if you've got a good pass rush.

Mack from the Raiders...

I also vote for Khalil Mack. Game changing player who will only be 27 next month. Possibly Von Miller, but he’s a couple years older than Mack.


Here’s a website of the “Top 100 of 2017” as voted on by NFL players. You can see where your picks fall as voted on by the guys who play against them:

For the record, I voted for my choices before I looked at the List.  ( - : #

I agree defense is the number one area of the team that needs an upgrade, but I selected Brown because I believe he is one of the best and most dynamic receivers in NFL history and pairing him with AR for 4 or 5 years would give the Packers the best opportunity to reach multiple Super Bowls. You could improve your defense in other ways, and many fine defensive players have been listed. Landing a talent like Brown would take the same type of luck as it was with getting AR in the draft. Just can't get away from pairing a first ballot hall of fame QB with a first ballot hall of fame WR. Browns numbers are staggering and he is a consistently dominant player

Tough call between Julio Jones, Antonio Brown, and Deandre Hopkins. Hopkins has done close to the same with much less, so I'll go with him.

As long as we are in fantasy land it is a tie between Sterling Sharpe and Nick Collins.
