2010 NFL Draft

Packers May Have A Shot At Wisconsin’s Carimi

Gabe Carimi

Wisconsin Badgers offensive tackle Gabe Carimi was one of the best offensive linemen in college football in 2010.

The Badgers left tackle won the Outland Trophy as the top interior lineman in college football, he was a consensus first-team All American, the Big Ten offensive lineman of the year and an All-Big Ten first-team selection.

Green Bay Packers Draft Grade: A+

I’m joking, of course. Any idiot who’s grading 2010 draft classes today is, well, just that. An idiot. Every team in the NFL is better today than they were at this time last week. Every team in the NFL has added new players to their roster. Grading a team’s draft class before they’ve even played […]

Packers’ Final Selection: Defensive End C.J. Wilson

C.J. Wilson

The Green Bay Packers’ final selection in the NFL Draft (No. 230) followed the same logic as most of the team’s other picks since the first round – that is to say, no logic existed. The Packers selected C.J. Wilson, a defensive end from East Carolina. On the surface you have to question why the […]

Packers Finally Add Running Back In Sixth Round

The Green Bay Packers were reportedly on the lookout for a running back in the NFL Draft and in the sixth round they finally added one, selecting Buffalo’s James Starks with pick No. 193. In doing so, the Packers passed up more highly-rated prospects throughout the draft like Georgia Tech’s Jonathan Dwyer, who went at […]

Packers Add Tight End, Guard In The Fifth Round

The Green Bay Packers defied logic again in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. Packers’ GM Ted Thompson chose Penn State tight end Andrew Quarless with the team’s first fifth-round pick (No. 154), even though the team is solid, one-though-three, on the tight end depth chart with Jermichael Finley, Donald Lee and Spencer Havner. […]

Packers Trade Up For Georgia Tech Safety In Third Round

The Green Bay Packers did something sensible in the third round of the NFL Draft and traded up to pick No. 71 to nab Georgia Tech safety Morgan Burnett. The pick was acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles for the Packers’ third (No. 86) and fourth-round (No. 122) picks. The Packers next pick is in round […]

Packers Select Someone You’ve Never Heard of In Second Round

With names like Golden Tate, Charles Brown and Ricky Sapp, as well as several solid cornerbacks on the board when the Green Bay Packers selected with the No. 56 overall pick, the team selected defensive tackle Mike Neal from Purdue. That’s right, Mike Neal from Purdue – a defensive tackle. So what you’re telling me […]

ESPN Fail!

Hannah Storm

It’s no secret that we have no love for ESPN and their so-called brand of “journalism” here at Total Packers. That is, with the exception of Erin Andrews, Rachel Nichols and Hannah Storm, who are some hot fucking broads whose lips may or may not be moving. And yeah, I know Hannah Storm is in […]

Packers Get Lucky, Bulaga Falls To No. 23

Bryan Bulaga

With all the talk of trading up or trading down, the Green Bay Packers got lucky in the end with Iowa left tackle Bryan Bulaga falling to the team as they stood pat at No. 23. There was word earlier in the day that Packers’ GM Ted Thompson was considering trading up to grab Bulaga, […]

Remember the Name Rodger Saffold

Rodger Saffold

As the NFL Draft approaches, one name that appears to be rising up draft boards is that of Indiana left tackle Rodger Saffold. Saffold, who was a four-year starter at Indiana, seems to be benefiting from what many predict will be a run on tackles in the first round. Saffold is 6-4, 316 and Peter […]

If Packers Move Up, Look For Bulaga

Bryan Bulaga

The NFL Draft is finally here, or at least it will be tonight. We’ve previously discussed the possibility of the Green Bay Packers moving up in the first round and looked at the players the team might target. The National Football Post’s Michael Lombardi says the specific player the Packers have their eye on is […]

Packers Could Trade Up And Who They Might Land

Eric Berry

One thing we haven’t discussed in relation to this week’s NFL Draft is the possibility of the Green Bay Packers trading up. The reason we haven’t discussed it is because Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson has only traded up twice in his five years on the job. He did, of course, move up last year […]

Packers Will Add Several Sixth Rounders, And Other Fun Stats

One thing you can bet on when you’re watching the Green Bay Packers’ draft unfold under the mastermind that is Ted Thompson, is that Thompson will come out with more picks than he went in with. In Thompson’s five drafts with the Packers, he’s traded back to pick up additional picks in each year except […]

Packers May Not Choose Tackle At All

Ted Thompson

Green Bay Packers’ general manager is an enlightening individual, especially in press conferences. I’m joking of course. It wasn’t really a surprise when Thompson said next to nothing, that is, unless you love cliches and bullshit, in Friday’s press conference with local reporters. However, the one interesting thing he did say probably won’t please anyone […]

The Rise, Fall, Rise and Fall of Bruce Campbell

Bruce Campbell

We’ve talked a lot about Maryland left tackle Bruce Campbell simply because he’s been projected as a first-round pick in this year’s NFL draft and the Green Bay Packers badly need a left tackle. The thing with Campbell is, he’s all over the board. Campbell was labeled as one of four year-one starting caliber left […]

Packers Looking At Running Backs

The Green Bay Packers have a clear-cut starting running back in Ryan Grant and they have several more pressing needs to fill, but word is, the team may consider picking a running back high in this year’s NFL draft. Dan Arkush says the main reason is one we discussed previously – the lack of any […]

3-4 Pass Rushers Aplenty, May Mean Packers Trade Down

Jerry Hughes

We’ve previously discussed the possibility of the Green Bay Packers opting for a pass rusher in the first round of the NFL Draft simply because the top-flight offensive tackles may be off the board by the time the Packers pick at No. 23. Although there are likely only four or five tackles with first-round talent, […]

Keep An Eye On Outside Linebackers

Sean Weatherspoon

The Green Bay Packers have several needs – probably more than a legitimate Super Bowl contender should have – entering this year’s NFL Draft. We’ve been harping on tackle and cornerback as the two biggest areas the Packers need to improve. At tackle, the Packers are relying on veterans Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher. Both […]

What Can the Packers Expect at No. 23?

Michael Oher

The Green Bay Packers hold the 23rd selection in the 2010 NFL Draft and while there are hundreds if not thousands of mock drafts predicting the Packers will select this player or that player, we’re going to completely ignore those and look at the 23rd selection from a different angle. We’re much more interested in […]

What Is Packers’ Biggest Need?

The Green Bay Packers have several glaring holes this offseason – offensive line, cornerback and safety among them – but I’ve been wavering as to which is the most troublesome. Offensive tackle is the obvious answer, but the cornerback position is an increasing concern on par with, if not greater than, the tackle position. The […]
