Stephon Tuitt - Defensive End, Notre Dame, 6-6, 312

Tuitt is a defensive lineman steadily rising on many draft boards. He has the right big, tall frame to fit defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. The Packers have lacked defensive ends with this type of frame for some time now.

With B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, Johnny Jolly, and C.J. Wilson all set to become free agents in 2014, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Packers go defensive line again in the first round. Green Bay will need more big bodies that can hold up against the run in base defense.

Plus, Tuitt is a pretty good pass rusher. He’s totaled 17 sacks in the past two seasons and 17 tackles for a loss.

    Let’s go for HaSean Clinton- Smith. Safety is such a requirement to improve the defense. What kind of a name is Ha Ha, anyway? It’s too bad we can’t reap all this young talent. Tuitt is a monster much needed to be an impact player. These are my first two choices.

      Yeah, I’m with you, Peter. I think both Clinton-Dix and Tuitt would be great fits in the Packers defense. I like the TEs in this draft, but I don’t think Green Bay needs to spend a first round pick on one. I’d like them to go defense in the first round, but that’ll be three years in a row going defense in round one.

      • Peter Maiz

        Well 3 years in a row and another year without a good defense. I wonder.
