2006 Green Bay Packers NFL Mock Draft Picks
Linebacker: The biggest need for the Packers is to grab a quality linebacker. Na'll digs is an unrestricted free agent and although only 27, is not the same player he was years ago. He and Robert Thomas are both injury prone players. Green Bay also lost Paris Lenon to Detroit. Finally Brady Poppinga is coming off of a season ending injury. The Packers will probably need to draft 2 linebackers in the first few rounds.
Offensive Guard: What a mess this has gotten to be. Last year the Packers didn't resign Marco Rivera or Mike Wahle, in turn was the collapse of this one proud offensive line. Scott Wells is just okay and Whitticker is still raw. This line needs some new blood.
Center: The Packers didn't resign center Mike Flanagan and the Texans snagged him up. Not a big loss as Flanagan was on the downslide of his career but Greg Ruegamer is also unsigned and even if they decide to bring Ruegamer back depth at this position is needed.
Green Bay is a mess right now on both offense and defense. Luckily there is a draft filled with young talent to help replenish this once proud franchise. Ohio State's AJ Hawk screams right off the page at number 5.
The rest of their picks will be used on plugging various holes on the offensive line and defensive sides of the ball. There is still the decision on whether or not Favre will play but regardless the time is now to rebuild this team and get back to respectability.
