Blace Brown is a guy I was toying with in some mocks I was working on. Tallish CB with some speed. Should fit in the middle rounds. Guess this means I have to put him in a mock at least once :) .

Will be very interesting to see who they talk to at the Senior Bowl. Hopefully at least one TE

Brown, Denis, Hart, and Mack are likely mid-round picks, the others, including Gilbert are late round to udfa types

When I read some of the things the Packers are doing, in regards to the upcoming draft, it's like they're looking to the middle rounds to add help. I found that curious considering they have two first round picks. They also have a pair in the 4th, and a pair in the 6th. If it means they intend trading up, using both first rounders or trading down, using one, I can't tell, but it's almost as if they we gearing up for something other than what's presently on the board as they stand.

This new hierarchy just might be planning on pulling the trigger on a deal that could make them a big player in the depth market.

Then there's trades. Players they could retain being traded with the other team having a "deal in place" to insure they get them, other than through free agency, which could be costly. Don't count it out. This is going to be an interesting situation.
