Has To Be A Pass Rusher, Right? – As I’ve started to do my daily pilgrimages around the various draft sites I’ve seen a couple advocating/prognosticating/flat out guessing the Packers would be taking a center as their first pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. That the center in question is Wisconsin’s own Peter Konz most times is great and all, but a center? I understand the reasoning behind that position as the pick with the question marks surrounding the return of Scott Wells but this draft really needs to be focused on defense for the Packers. We all painfully remember the lack of pass rush this past season. We all know Ted Thompson won’t dive in to free agency for Mario Williams or someone else. That only leaves the draft to secure someone to put pressure on the QB. Can Thompson & company find someone to fit that bill in the 2nd of 3rd round? Anything is possible but for this Packers fan I would feel a lot more comfortable seeing that first pick expended on an OLB or DE with pass rushing skills than any other position out there. Having said that, Thompson will most likely pick up a running back with pick 28, just watch.
Post Script: I wrote the above yesterday, obviously before the news of Finley’s new contract so some things have changed. With Finley signed the Packers could now use their Franchise Tag on Scott Wells however that still doesn’t preclude Thompson from taking a center of the future with his pick this year. Either way, I still firmly believe the pick should be on an edge rusher but who knows what Thompson thinks, your guess is as good as anyone’s.
