...Take Arizona defensive end Ricky Elmore, for example. Elmore was the teammate of defensive end Brooks Reed, a second-round pick by the Houston Texans. The Packers had interest in Reed, for he fit in the area of the final pick of the first round and he projected nicely to outside linebacker in Dom Capers’ 3-4. So, of course, does Elmore.

The Packers worked the two players out together. You might say Elmore and Reed were working out against each other, and you might say Elmore worked out well enough to qualify as the sixth-round equivalent of Reed...

Good!  I think you are the only other person on here with "liberal" politics.  Not that I read the mindless crap that gets spewed in that forum.  Gotta stick to football on this board.

From Bleacher Report:

Randall Cobb Will Become Aaron Rodgers' Favorite Target
Andy Lyons/Getty Images I can’t really justify in words how exceptional I thought this pick was for the Green Bay Packers.

Randall Cobb perfectly fits the profile of the new breed of NFL receiver.

Cobb is a smaller slot receiver with devastating quickness and speed, and he’s the type of player who has to be accounted for on every snap.

With the exception of Greg Jennings, Green Bay’s receiving corps have been plagued by inconsistent play recently, so Cobb has a great shot to come in and be an immediate impact player as a rookie.

From Bleacher Report:

The Green Bay Packers stocked their roster by drafting 10 players last week, which will leave some veterans either out of work or demoted come September.

That’s the nature of the NFL, where competition and General Manager Ted Thompson’s constant quest for improvement keeps the revolving roster door spinning. The draft created clear winners and losers among returning players:

Winners
• The Packers showered quarterback Aaron Rodgers with gifts. He received new offensive weapons in the form of receiver Randall Cobb and running back Alex Green, and extra protection with first-round tackle Derek Sherrod. Life is good for the reigning Super Bowl MVP.

• C.J. Wilson was an unsung seventh-round draft choice last year but has the chance to play a significant role on the defensive line. The expected departures of Cullen Jenkins and Johnny Jolly already provided a window of opportunity. But it got even better for Wilson when the Packers ignored a college talent pool rich in defensive ends until the seventh round. Third-year defensive end Jarius Wynn’s career prospects also went up.

• Graham Harrell isn’t ready for prime time, but with Matt Flynn’s contract expiring after the season and no competition coming out of the draft, the Packers’ third-string quarterback has the chance to eventually climb the depth chart.

• The Packers waited until the sixth round to draft an outside linebacker, which is a huge vote of confidence for Frank Zombo, Erik Walden and Brad Jones. One of those players likely will be in the starting lineup opposite Clay Matthews in the season opener.

• The selection of Cobb, who doubles as a return man, means Pro Bowl-caliber cornerback Tramon Williams no longer needs to sacrifice life and limb returning punts. The Packers risked Williams’ health last season on special teams because there was no decent alternative. Williams can get back to focusing on what he does best, which is shutting down opposing receivers.

• Jarrett Bush, formerly one of the most criticized players on the team, proved his worth on special teams last season and in the secondary with an interception in the Super Bowl. The Packers didn’t draft a safety, which should allow Bush to stay for another year.

Losers
• It’s conceivable, maybe even likely, that Pat Lee and Brandon Underwood will make the roster, but their chances of earning more playing time were reduced when the Packers drafted cornerback Davon House. What formerly was a two-man scramble for cornerback duty behind Charles Woodson, Williams and Sam Shields has become a three-way battle.

• The presence of Green, the third-round pick from Hawaii, could knock Brandon Jackson out of his third-down running back role, or make the Packers less inclined to give Jackson a new contract. If Green produces a big splash, it also could pave the way for the departure of Ryan Grant after this season.

• The Packers won’t feel as hard-pressed to re-sign James Jones now that Cobb, the second-round receiver from Kentucky, is in the fold. Even if Jones stays, he likely won’t see as many balls thrown his way.

• Conventional wisdom suggests the drafting of two tight ends will spell trouble for Tom Crabtree. But it’s possible the Packers will keep four tight ends at the expense of the fullback position. While the versatile and productive John Kuhn is a good bet to stick, the same can’t be said for Korey Hall or Quinn Johnson. One or both might have to go.

• It’s almost a given that Sherrod’s arrival will hasten the departure of tackle Mark Tauscher. But veteran guards and potential free agents Jason Spitz and Daryn Colledge also could be on their way out the door if young and hungry linemen like T.J. Lang, Nick McDonald or sixth-round draft pick Caleb Schlauderaff develop.

I bet they could get a pretty penny in a trade for Flynn if they feel Harrel can progress enough - but I would dread every sack of Rodgers thereafter.

I'm wondering just how good Harrel is.  Thompson/McCarthy must be confident since they didn't draft a QB.

at least you guys got another T in the pipeline and you don't have to rush him in. You guys are really the example org in the NFC.

Everyone knew Favre was pretty much done. He threw too many games away for you guys. We were hoping he would stay there 3-4 more years.
