The Packers 2010 draft was a great draft for them. This draft was a clunker IMOP. The problem was they decided to draft for need but I don't think they counted on the league going d crazy/pass rusher crazy. Even though this was a great draft to pick up a 3-4 LB and end, the guys that were on the board were not planned for and that is why you end up with your first 2 picks not fitting your scheme and being great athletes but low effort players. I have a feeling they thought they would be debating whether to pick Shea mc, chandler jones, mercilus, or brockers (or at least 2 of those). Shea and jones would have been perfect for them and i would have been swearing...instead of smiling.
I thought the guys they drafted fit better in a 4-3 defense. I was gleeful during the draft as I watched them grab players that didn't fit their scheme. The coaches are going to be putting in a ton of OT with these guys trying to convert them. They might be planning to have packages where they have 4 down lineman though. It's the only thing that makes sense for them to succeed this year with this draft.
The guy i really like is Mike Daniels and looked at him pre draft as a possible vikings selection. But he is more of 3 technique tackle then a 3-4 end (also he has concussion issues). Perry and Worthy also have effort concerns. I read a quote by Worthy claiming "everyone takes plays off". LOL, i guess he hasn't watched jered allen play.
Perry is best as a hand in the dirt 4-3 end. Is this the second coming of Kampman (remember that is when the packer coaches and fans were confident they could easly convert him due to his superior athletic ability)? This a classic boom/bust selection. He would still be considered that as a 4-3 end but less so.
The DBs would be better in cover 2 scheme also.
Datko was good selection and he can fully recover from his injury might be steal for them from this draft.
This draft would look much better had they selected upshaw. Not the upside of perry, but also, not the bust potential. I think they could have plugged him in day 1 and he'd be a starter and good player (not great). Shea would have been even better for them. Instead Ted swung for the fences with his eyes closed. Whiff!
They could have had a killer draft instead of they have a draft that looks like too many maybes when they could have drafted more likelies.
