Well, happy draft day!!!
As we all await the Green Bay Packers selection tonight at 26 (i'm guessing that goes off at 9:14PM CT) i thought i'd gather all the guesses from the SportsRadio 1250 team. I asked all the guys to give me 2 choices in case their top pick was gone. Gary (of course) gave me 3 names and Chuck only gave me 1. So here we go...
With the 26th pick in the 2013 NFL draft, The Green Bay Packers select...
Eddie Lacy RB Alabama
1st choice - Desmond Trufant DB Washington
2nd choice - DJ Fluker OT Alabama
1st choice - Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina
(yes, that Marcus Lattimore. If he goes before Saturday, I owe Sparky lunch on Monday)
2nd choice - Who cares? His 1st choice is nuts.
1st choice - Matt Elam SS Florida
2nd choice - Sylvester Williams DT North Carolina
(The ONLY reason he's going with Sly, is because Bob McGinn did)
1st choice - Datone Jones DE UCLA
2nd choice - Bjoern Werner DE Florida State
(OK, Matt. Because every all pro DE is from Berlin, Germany)
1st choice - Eric Reid FS LSU
2nd choice - Menelik Watson OT Florida State
3rd choice - Sylvester Williams DT North Carolina
Leroy Butler - 1st choice - Thinks the Packers are trading out.
And so do I...Look for Ted Thompson to get OUT of the 1st round but stay near the top of the 2nd.
Enjoy day 1 of the draft!!
