Well, much to my chagrin it would appear that the new format of the NFL Draft was a success, can’t win them all. Depending on who you talk to, many will say the Packers 2010 Draft was a success with the central tenant of drafting for depth & the future. Let’s take a look at what the regular suspects had to say and go drafting one last time:
- Unpacked thought it was a good draft but now needs to make some trades to fill some remaining holes.
- Railbird Central’s knee jerk reaction after the draft.
- TotalPackers.com has your undrafted free agent round up.
- Brew City Sports has an overall draft recap.
- For a complete and insightful breakdown of all three days and the players picked, just go to Jersey Al’s Packer Blog, pretty much has it all there.

Final Draft Thoughts - As Mike aka ‘BigSnakeMan’ pointed out below the new format of the draft was a success with almost 20% more viewership than the previous 2 day weekend format. Can’t win them all I guess and if I am being honest it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. On the Packers draft itself, I can’t be too unhappy when you get what is arguably a Top 10 talent at spot #23 and while the Mike Neal pick was a head scratcher the pick of safety Morgan Burnett was solid. I would say out of those top 3 picks Burnett has the most chance of starting on opening day of the 2010 season. Of course, there is a long time between now and the beginning of the season so anything could happen, even dare I say a free agent or two joining the team.
