People spun the academic thing with Raji. His play on the field was high effort. I just don't see that with with Hankins. I agree on the upside, I just don't think you can write off the inconsistency I see. It's not just inconsistent effort, it's his up and down play also.

Collins had played CB though. That's at least also in the same ballpark. Also, for all his athletic ability, Collins smarts and instincts at S were never his strong point. His ball skills and range were amazing though and that made up for it

I think Williams was fine this year and the fact he even played in 2011 with that shoulder injury is impressive. The stupid "Slowpoke" nickname (he's not even slow) and alot of unnecessary hate has been piled on him. He was far from a weak point in 2012.

They got rid of Quinn Johnson because they didn't use him. He was on the gameday inactive list as often as on the active roster.

All those WRs we've been cranking out? Jennings, Nelson, and Cobb all 2nd round picks, Jones a 3rd. Sure, good returns, but high end talent as well.

~I trust our coaching staff with Hankins. To be honest, I have no idea if Hankins can develop. But there's no developing the talent, and again he has the possibility of being great more so than any other prospect at who will be there ar #26.
~Well, again, we have McMillian who could be a great option at S, but with Wilcox we can have a guy who could be one of the best in the game. If not, McMillian would be a fine option at the position. Having a quality, but developing player gives us the flexibility to take a risk on someone else who could be a perennial Pro Bowler.
~I dunno man, I wasn't too impressed with Williams this year, I'm ready for an upgrade.
~Quinn Johnson played extensively in short yardage situations. We put Kuhn as the ballcarrier and used Quinn Johnson as the lead blocker. We had a darn good running game for short yardage situations. That's what I am trying to recapture with a power FB. We are talking about the 6th round here, it's okay to have a ST guy whose a goaline specialist lead blocker.

Yeah not saying you are WRONG overall, it's just way more of a gamble than I like to take that many of. I see why they all COULD hit, but also why they could all miss. I'd prefer to balance some risks with some safe picks.

Fair enough!

Thanks packerbacker87 for the sig!

I don't understand the hype with hankins at all. Watch his tape. He's slow, doesn't seem overly athletic and rarely gets any push. I wouldn't touch him before the 3rd. I really don't see anything special with him.

Question What?!?!?!

Did you watch one bad game on him or something? The guy makes tackles all over the field. Look at the game against Cal. 10 tackles, 1 sack, ran down a WR on a screen. To say he's slow is silly. To say he gets pushed around is even more silly. He consistently beats double teams and usually uses a bull rush to do that.

Seriously, did you just watch a bad game? Cause honestly, that doesn't make a whole lotta sense.

I can't remember which games I watched of him (I want to say Notre Dame and Wisconsin?) he just didn't make much of an impact in those games. I'll have to take a look at the tape from the Cal game. Maybe I was too quick to judge him, but whatever I saw did not impress me at all.
Go Packers!

We're not tagging Jennings not going to happen. Would love to pick up Steven Jackson but that's not TT like. Would address the wide receiver position earlier other than that this mock actually is realistic.

Props to Uncle Buck for the sig.

Well done dain! The slots are a bit off for me, but do feel you could pull that group. Bunch of kids in there with a TT feel also.
