Last but certainly not least, many thanks to c63tho for his great writeup here at No. 64 for the Green Bay Packers. WIth the second round just about to start, we squeezed it all in! Great work everybody. We'll review our community mock sometime next week. - Michael B. -

**********

With the 64th overall draft selection, the Green Bay Packers select OL Clint Boling, Georgia.

From Mocking the Draft: "Boling looks to be a solid 2nd round selection and should be able to contribute at guard from day one.  He is a sound technician with the strength and quickness to both effectively pass and run block.  Ideally, Boling would add some more bulk to his frame but he possesses to proper technique to overcome.  Any team looking to improve their guard play would benefit from adding Boling to the mix." Boling is quick, fluid, controlled, and balanced, with a nasty streak, good technique, and really plays low.

We know which positions the Packers are pretty much set for: QB, TE, DL, CB, and Safety. Aaron Rodgers, Jermichael Finley/Andrew Quarless, BJ Raji/Phil Taylor/Mike Neal, Charles Woodson/Tramon Williams/Sam Shields, and Nick Collins/Morgan Burnett respectively fill out these positions.

What's left? The positions of running back, wide receiver, linebacker and offensive line.

Green Bay's current running back platoon consists of Ryan Grant, James Starks, Brandon Jackson, and John Kuhn. Although Jackson is probably leaving, I think the Packers will sit on the tandem of Grant/Starks, given Starks' potential and the lack of guaranteed impact backs available.

The Green Bay receivers decimated the Steelers secondary. Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, and James Jones are a crew that is one of the best groups in the game today. However, Driver is old, and Jones is leaving. A big and/or tough receiver to replace Driver is a possible target, but none are worth it at the bottom of the second. A kick returner/smaller receiver is also a possible target, given that Tramon Williams is now a starting corner who's too good to risk. Again, none are worth a pick, especially given that returners are so plentiful in the later rounds.

Linebackers are a strength, clearly with guys like Bishop, AJ Hawk, Barnett (although he may leave), and Brandon Chillar all coming back in the middle and a lot of young linebackers outside (Frank Zombo, Erik Walden, Brad Jones). Oh, did I forget anyone? "Claymaker", perhaps? Anyways, ILBs are only a depth need, since Bishop/Hawk are starting, Barnett leaves, and Chillar backs up solidly. One more prospect/backup would be a nice selection, but not at number 2. For OLB, obviously Matthews is a superstar, a "Woodley" to Matthews' "Harrison" is necessary. Unfortunately, no game-changing linebackers are available, and adding another competitor to the mix at LOLB won't help, since they might not even play.

Finally, there's offensive line. The tackles are old: Mark Tauscher and Chad Clifton, and Bryan Bulaga can only play one side. The backups, Marshall Newhouse and TJ Lang aren't starting quality. At guard, Daryn Colledge is likely leaving as a free agent, and Josh Sitton is a rising, if unheralded, talent that is a favourite of the Packers faithful. Scott Wells, the center, is solid, but also 30 years old. Similarly, Nick MacDonald , Jason Spitz, and Evan Dietrich-Smith aren't starting quality guards right now either, although MacDonald is a McCarthy favourite to replace Wells at center. Boling will fit in and start right away at guard, but can also shift over to tackle, as he did when Georgia's starting tackles went down.
