After watching the NFL combine and watching more tape on the 3 top prospects, Benardrick McKinney, Denzel Perryman, and Eric Kendricks, I honestly don’t believe any of them are worth a first round grade when it comes down to it. With that said I believe we need to take a big guy on defense. There are a lot of rushers/run stoppers in this years draft worthy of first round picks and a few of them could be around at 30 like Eddie Goldman, DT-FSU, Owamagbe Odighizuwa, DE-UCLA, Jordan Phillips, DT-Oklahoma to name a few. So should Thompson go after a worthy first rounder like one of these big guys or go ahead and take a ILB which we all know is a position of need this year? I believe at pick #60 the Pack’s 2nd round there will be a ILB worthy of that still available like Stephone Anthony, ILB-Clemson or Ramik Wilson, ILB-Georgia. Who knows maybe even a name like Perryman or Kendricks could still be there as well since they are really not a first round worthy pick this year. Right now the top 3 I mentioned are slated to come off the board in the second round Kendricks at around pick 48, Perryman at 54 and McKinney at 57 but one or two could drop down to that magic 60 mark.
So the question is D-lineman or Inside linebacker first?
I want to hear from Packer nation on this subject. Leave me a comment below or drop one in back on the Facebook Fanpage here.
