On board with the first two players (though I like the idea of QB Fromm in the 2nd). On the Fanspeak generator I've picked both Murray and Aiyuk, though Murray is gone most of the time, often just one pick before GB. I like Okwuegbunam in the 4th as well..................some had him as a 1st rounder earlier in the year (but most have him further down now). I like the idea of a RB later (I'd probably get one in the 5th, good value for RBs around there.

I'm wondering if your draft means you have retained Bulaga and Martinez - a RT and a ILB are less crucial picks if you kept them both on (cost, approx $20m pa for them both).

My ideal 1st round pick is a good 3-4 DL, but there aren't many good ones this year. I doubt Javon Kinlaw lasts to the Packers first round pick, but Justin Madubuike and James Lynch are possible targets.......they look like a small reach at this time but by the time the draft rolls around, who knows ?

There are going to be several good TE's available in FA this year. The Packers could very well use some of their newly found cap space to get a proven commodity, rather than draft a TE. JMO

Keeping bulaga and letting Martinez go. They will probably sign a FA ILB.

I think they will sign and FA ILB and TE. If they dont get an ILB via FA I think they move up and grab Murray. However, I think the  draft will be invested in one top tier WR, good OL prospects and some DL early on. After the first three rounds I think they dabble in athleticism and take a corner, wr, rb, and another lb. Speed kills, and we need more of it.
