Anybody seen some players in college that you want your team to draft. But make it a diamond in the rough, a guy that everybody is not talking about...Make it a prediction that if one of your sleepers makes the Pro -Bowl that you can dig up this post and say "I know my garbage"    I have 3 guys who I hope my Packers draft.

1. Arthur Brown LB Kansas ST......He is a great defensive player in the high powered Big 12 conference. He is fast and plays super aggressive. Good tackler. A guy that according to the ESPN mock draft experts do not have going in the 1 or 2nd RD. If I am GB I trade up in the 2nd RD to try to make sure you get this guy. They could use a LB with speed who can tackle if they dont want to see Adrian Peterson run for another 400 YDS in 2 games next season. Scouts have said he is too small and plays over aggressively. I will take my chances.

2 Reid Fragel  OT  Ohio ST........This guy has not played a lot on the offensive line.....He was recruited to be a tight end but out grown that position at 6"8. Being a former receiver he is an athletic kid. He is a bit raw and there is a list of things he needs to improve on, He is a projected 5th RD pick. What I like about him is that he put mostly muscle on to fill out that tall frame. Tall and as strong as bull doing 34 reps on the bench. He has size, strength and athleticism. Now he just has to be well coached and he could be really good. Worth a 5th RD pick.

3 Colby Cameron QB LA Tech...Damn sham he probably wont even be drafted because of his size / arm strength.....He does not have exactly a rocket for an arm but it was good enough to be arguably one of the most productive passing QB's in what was his first full season last year. He is very smart and accurate. There have been a lot of good QB's   without good arm strength + that is something he can improve on. Someone will take a chance on this kid and wont regret it.

Arthur Brown is a good one. I really like Tank Caradine but not really a sleeper anymore. The guys got size at 6'4 275, strength 28 reps, and speed 4.6 40. If not for the injury he's a top 10 pick. He will most likely end up being the best de in this draft.

I'll add another one, Houston CB DJ Hayden. If not for a freak injury that should have killed him, he maybe is challenging Dee Millner for top corner in the draft. He reminds of Vontae Davis with better awareness. Elite physical tools, and for a corner he's built and hits like a truck. He can man or zone and has the ability to plant and come back to the ball. The chest thing is pretty scary, but if he's medically cleared he might go 2nd round.

If I'm the Packers, I'd take Monte Ball in the 3rd or 4th round.......

I'm with the Hawk, Monte Ball will make the team that takes him very happy.

Packers need to fix the defense first, then draft Ball. He's not an everydown back, but will keep a defense honest the first two downs. The publicity of a local kid will be great (like the Packers have trouble selling out) Currently, Packers do not have that back, and Rodgers will get killed if he has to throw on first down for the rest of his career........
