The only thing becoming clearer as the time to the draft hits the two week mark is that the Packers number 29 decision is unclear. One thing I believe that Packer Nation has to get used to is the idea that two very good players, perhaps at different positions will be staring Ted Thompson in the eye when the Packers go on the clock. If it was only cornerbacks that seem to be rising to the surface as the Packers' first pick, there would be debate about which was better, or a better fit, or more versatile. This year, nothing…

The Packers need a good draft to get the team over the hump that has in recent years become the NFC Championship. The defense is the consensus top priority though some wouldn't mind a running back in the first round. Of course, the Packers pick best player available and if a running back is it, that would fit Ted Thompson's self-stated philosophy while many would argue that he does not pick running backs in the first round.
