    Every DeadHead knows the answer to that, Jerry Garcia told us.

    Well Brunell was in 93 I think...right. Which would have been 1 year after they acquired Farve, and again, he was drafted in the 5th round. Ty Detmer was drafted in the 9th round the year they traded their number 1 pick to acquire Farve. So No...I don't think any of those guys was brought in with the thought they would take over for Farve one day...especially since he made the Pro Bowl his first year as a starter. Hasselback wasn't drafted till 98 in the 6th round...again, he wasn't brought in to take over for Farve.

    Buck, we talking about quality of play or round they were drafted, you keep switing it up. They picked early, but you mocked b/c the guys they picked early didn't turn out, pointed out the probowl guys behind him and it's they were picked late. make up your mind foo

    LOL! Well now I'm confuzzled! If we're talking about replacements for Farve, I'm talking about the round they were drafted. Yes, Brunell and Hasselback turned into good NFL QB's, but none were really meant to replace Farve(and none of which aside from Rodgers, who was drafted in round 1 were drafted by Thompson).

    IF we're talking about Ted Thompsons draft history...which started in 05, then I'm talking about quality of first round picks. He just hasn't done a great job.

    These are his first round picks:

    2005: 24: Aaron Rodgers
    2006: 5: AJ Hawk
    2007: 17: Justin Harrell
    No first rounder in 08
    2009: BJ Raji at 9, Clay Matthews at 26(who they traded back into the first round to get)
    2010: Bryan Bulaga
    2011: Derek Sherrod
    2012: Nick Perry
    2013: Datone Jones

    Like I said...not that great in round 1.

    well lets just forget this entire thing then :)

    I'd say first 5 first round picks were winners, last few not so much,.

    4Da, the more I read about the kid & the more tape I watch I'm liking the pick more & more. Someone else mentioned that he makes our nickel defense better against the run, which is an excellent point & extremely important part of a nickel defense that few people think about. I'm ready to see who we pick tonight!

    Justin Harrell is a winner? The guy started 2 games in 4 years and had 17 tackles...TOTAL! And BJ Raji has only had more than 20 tackles once in his career and has gone 2 years without a sack. Like I said...good in the middle rounds...first round...eh

    Raji and Matthews, didn't see Harrell in there. I wouldn't knock Raji, you don't expect a 3-4 NT to get a ton of sacks, he's there to plug lanes and force action to the DE's and LB's.

    Yeah, I don't think they use him like they could. He could be similar to Ngata in Baltimore who always at least records a sack every season and has had multipole 40 plus tackle seasons.

    I think it's one of the reasons that Raji almost split, and the same reason Peppers was frusterated last year, they were asked to do grunt work and then got railed for not hitting the meaurable stats.

    Watching the press conference and I think I might have a new favorite player lol. Seems like a really humble, intelligent and nice guy.
    Rooting big time for him!

    So what happens to Hayden and Frey? Yes he brings in competition, but one of these guys will need to convert to safety.

    There's a distinct possibility that Hayden doesn't even make the team.

    My thoughts exactly. Hopefully Hayden won't make the team and Frey will move to safety.

    I was not blown away like I had hoped I would have been with our 1st round pick but have warmed up to it. I also wonder, maybe Peanut is not healing as fast as had hoped so this is security as well as a NB starter?

    If this years pick is as good or close to last years pick ( first round)I will be very happy. Will have to wait and see.

    Imagine if our second round pick is as good as Emery's first second rounder? Now that'd be fun to watch.

    G.B. is launching 3 WR's all the time.

    The more you think about it the more the Fuller pick makes sense.

    And his intangibles are that he is a blitzing Corner.

    Also takes on RB's. SST skills? Lets see.

    I was thinking they would run a lot of 3 Corner defenses. Especially when you have a CB who can is physical enough to double as a safety.
