because they drafted like they were a real playoff team that is a couple of guys away from making the big game, which they are not. They have more holes than they think. It is not to say I would pissed cause they totally messed it up. The best way to put it is, as a Packer fan, I was afraid this draft was really going to put them on a different plane. They had two 1st's and 11 picks. This draft is loaded in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. I really thought they would have traded out of the first round and get more picks in those rounds, or get an early pick next year to get a QB. They picked up Patterson who I am not high on and gave a crap load to get him. The could have easily traded out got more picks and still got a guy like Woods in the 2nd.
Now they have no picks in the heart of this draft and have 3 first round salaries to deal with in a few years. The offense regardless of weapons is still designed around a QB who will never get it, which requires you to put the whole shabang on the back of AP. Pull him out and its Jenga. Just my opinion they could have done a lot more to solidify the future of this team.

If I'm a Vikings fan I'm at least happy that my team didn't do what the Bears did in the first round. There's absolutely no reaon that Kyle Long should have been taken that early in the draft. Sports radio down here is gold right now and I can only imagine what Boers and Bernstein will be like this afternoon.
i agree with that. no doubt OL was a need, but many other ways to go about it.
Dallas Cowboy fan here. What did you guys think about Dallas taking Frederick in the first round? What kind of player could he be in the NFL? A lot of Dallas fans were upset at the pick both because of the poor trade value and they thought he could be easily drafted in the second round. Getting an interior lineman from Wisconsin should make most fans happy I would think.
I don't know a whole lot about draft dynamics, but here goes:
If they are upset because they thought they should have picked someone else up with that pick because Frederick would likely be available later, that's a fair criticism for the management.
If they are upset because he runs a slow 40: Sit down, shut up, and think about what everyone was saying about Russell Wilson. Some measureables are borderline irrelevant. Granted, I don't know much about Dallas. Maybe you guys do require your center to line up next to the 4.3 WR and block for him or something...
You're getting an phenomenally intelligent player. Period. End of discussion. You are right, getting a lineman from Wisconsin is a good thing.
With Travis Dallas is getting an offensive lineman that can play 3 spots and not miss a beat. His IQ is through the roof and should help with jumping right in and knowing what Romo is calling, switching to and defensive alignments. Just because a lineman can run fast doens't mean they are best for NFL; if that was the case than Oregon's oline would be 1st rounders every year with their pace.
Could they have gotten him in round 2; maybe; or maybe another team that needs a center would have taken him.
Le'Veon Bell ahead of Montee Ball in the draft... Bell to Pittsburgh.
Fills that bigger back role that they seem to like, don't understand why they didn't pick lacy but oh well.
Cedric Benson could be influencing the packers draft. Went in before the draft to visit the packers and it went well.
Montee to Broncos, pick 58 in the 2nd.
