Tackling the Defense

That’s seven players at defensive tackle on the Packers roster going into the draft. With the 16th overall selection in the 2007 draft, they added number eight. You can now put Justin Harrell on that list. A strong, but not terribly large tackle who has missed almost half his college career due to injuries.

Meanwhile, our starting corners are at the back-end of their careers. None of the other players on the team at that position are even able to play the nickel spot without making the coaches nervous. Oh, and Leon Hall was still available.

3rd round is a bit better… Aaron Rouse seems like non-midget version of Ahmad Carroll, but I’m willing to give him a shot. James Jones is sloppy, but could be a potential #4 guy.

Maybe Sunday will be better? Somehow?
