    Here's my prediction, which only involves the first round because beyond that, who could know?

    The Packers want to trade up to target the top 3 DBs. The only real target is the Bills at 12, assuming they can't make a move up for a QB and don't make a major mistake drafting Rudolph or Jackson there. They need OL help in a major way and if they can drop a couple spots and still grab McGlinchy at 14 and pick up a little something extra for their trouble, it makes sense for them.

    But let's assume Buffalo either moves up to get a QB or is too proud to admit their mistake moving up (but not far enough) and sits tight at 12 and picks.

    At 14 GB just misses out on the prime group of players. No one wants to trade up to 14, so we have to make a pick. The pundits will tell you that it's going to be Josh Jackson, or Marcus Davenport or Harold Landry based on GB's needs, but those guys are projects and have too much bust potential. My pick at 14 is: Rashaan Evans, ILB, Alabama.

    Yes we need a slot corner. Yes we need outside rush. Forget it in the first, because the value just isn't there. The middle of GB's defense has been soft as mush since Dez Bishop tore his hamstring in 2012. That stops tomorrow. Evans can run, he can hit, he can shoot a gap and he can rush from the interior. He is not the brains of the operation but Blake can take on that role. Not a big playmaker in terms of getting his hands on the ball and taking it away, but Ro Smith has as many INTs (zero) and 1 more FF (3 v 2) than Evans, and he'll be long gone. Is 14 high for him? Maybe, but IMO this guy will start from day 1, he will play, he will contribute and we will be happy he's there.

    Defense starts up front, and it continues up the middle. The long neglect of this part of the D must end, this year it's a strength of the draft and this year we finally fix it.

    2) Mike Hughes, CB, Central Florida
    3) Michael Gallup, WR, Colorado St.
    4) Daurice Fountain, WR, Northern Iowa
    4) Tavarius Moore, FS, Southern Miss

    5) Jordan Thomas, TE, Miss State
    5) Jalen Davis, CB, Utah St.

    Wow, what a crap shoot this year. I've put more time in than usual on this draft (since we're picking so high) and I still feel less confident than ever. Having a new GM, wondering what his perspectives are on everything from our current roster to his own valuation of recent draft picks. Anyway, I see T. Williams from the Chargers just signed his tender which makes him tradable. So we trade back three spots with Chargers and pick up a WR. That would be ideal. Instead, we stay put and watch the Mighty Fitz fall into our lap.

    #1- Minkah Fitzpatrick CB/S Alabama
    #2- Anthony Miller WR Memphis
    #3- Ogo Okoronkwo OLB Oklahoma
    #4- Ian Thomas TE Indiana
    4B- Holton Hill CB Texas
    #5- Jack Cichy ILB Wisconsin
    5B- Marquies Haynes OLB Mississippi
    5C- Timon Parris OL Stony Brook
    #6- Natrell Jamerson S Wisconsin
    6B- Justin Watson WR Penn
    7A- Mike Ramsey DL Duke
    7B- Brett Toth OT Army

    OK, I'll believe McGinn and what was written up on "visits". Of course there's talk of trades so who knows, maybe we move up for Ward, maybe we have to drop down a bit for a guy like McGlinchey or Alexander.

    1 - Minkah Fitzpatrick - DB/Ala
    2 - Lorenzo Carter - OLB/GA
    3 - Chukwuma Okorafor - OT/W.Mich.
    4a - Michael Gallup - WR/Colo.St.
    4b - Ian Thomas - TE/Ind.
    5a - Chase Litton - QB/Marshall
    5b - Andrew Brown - DL/Vir.
    5c - Jack Cichy - ILB/Wis.
    6a - Nico Falah - OC/USC
    6b - Marquis Valdes-Scantling - WR/S.Fla.
    7a - Austin Ramesh - FB/Wis.
    7b - Mike Ford - CB/SE.Mizz.St.
