Bo Scarborough was picked in the 7th round for a reason. He was phased out at Alabama. He had issues with his build up speed. He wouldn't fit what the Packers want. A good pass. The Packers had to fix their CB situation, plain and simple. Their WR situation also was in need of repair. They had the slowest WRs in the NFL, that's bad! Now they don't. I wish they would've taken a TE, maybe Troy Fumagalli, maybe a Edge rusher before the 7th round. Madison also fills a need. Rome wasn't built in a day. The Packers got better at  CB and WR this year, next year maybe at Edge rusher.

A good watch for people who like a deeper dive into the Packers draft. Found it interesting that they have Cole Madison graded out as the 2nd highest rated OT in this years draft.

I think all the talk of him moving to Guard is a partial smoke screen.

Madison's tenaciousness and athleticism reminds me of one Mr. Bakhtiari. DB was supposed to move inside to Guard coming out of the draft as well.  confused( Really?

Maybe he does end up at Guard, but I think there's a fair chance he gets a shot at RT as well.
