Darqueze Dennard - Cornerback, Michigan State, 5-11, 197 (4.52)

Considering other needs on the team, I would be a little surprised if the Packers take a cornerback in the first round, but they may lose Sam Shields to free agency, Tramon Williams will turn 31, and Casey Hayward could have reocurring hamstring issues during his career.

It never hurts to have another talented defensive back on your roster. Dennard is a physical corner that has played a lot of press man at Michigan State. He may be the closest thing to a shutdown corner there is in this year’s draft.

The Packers could use his cover skills and the tenacity he brings to the position.

    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.
