LenDale White to Green Bay @ 1.05 (1 Viewer)

Chaos Commish

A Packers source told The Post that the club is already enamored with USC running back LenDale White and that he would certainly not make it past Green Bay, which has the fifth pick in the upcoming draft.
The reports out of New York about how in love the Jets were with Reggie seemed valid to me. I've thought DeAngelo Williams was under appreciated in various draft mocks all year. Could the Jets take DeAngelo, the Pack take LenDale, and 3 backs go in the top 5... again... two years in a row? :popcorn:eta: Didn't see the other post, sorry.

That would be shocking.

I don't think so, but if Hawk or Williams or Ferguson fall as a result, as a Lions fan I'd be elated...
 
he's like a Najeh Davenport that might be able to stay healthy
Funny you should mention Najeh because I have to take a dump..... no, seriously... because I've projected LenDale to Pittsburgh in round 1 for months now. If his stock really rises that high and he goes #5 to Green Bay, I would not be remotely surprised if Green Bay cuts ties with Davenport and he signs as a FA with.... Pittsburgh. Not surprised at ALL.
 
At least one draft consultant said LenDale would go between 6th-12th, so this isnt that far fetched. Like Evilgrin, ive been hoping for a white-steelers marriage for months now, but I feel confident that there's no way it will happen.

Yeah, it seems to fade farther with each passing day. At this point, I would not be at all surprised to see Pittsburgh sign Najeh as a FA and eschew RB in the draft altogether. Go for a WR like Nance, Hagan, or Jackson in round 1 , or just take the BPA.

Im thinking Nance or Baskett - both fit that huge downfield target role that plax had. I dont think there's a 3-4 DE prospect worth our first. I think our depth at LB is solid enough to pass on a guy from that great class. I am starting to really like the DBs, and think we might be able to land an excellent FS such as laron landry if he comes out or a guy like pat watkins. Chris Hope just aint doin it for me. WR or FS makes sense the most to me. As long as we're happy with Okobi to take over at C, we would probably pass on kyle young (if he comes out). As long as we're happy with essex and kemoeatu as depth on the line, we would probably not take a T/G. I dont think there's any RB who fits our running game thats worth a late first assuming White is long gone. Guys like Addai, Calhoun, and Maroney would be enticing for sure, and may work out, but Id be just as happy waiting for a guy like Cedric Humes and seeing what we can do with him.

 
if the pack does take white, they might as well scrap the wco and go back to a power run game and focus some of that free agent coin on defense.

I tend to agree with all of this. I am not 100% sold on Okobi though, and wouldn't be upset with a center pick, but not in round 1. Eslinger and Mangold are guys that will likely be there in the middle rounds that have great upside as possible replacements for Hartings. The only guy I see as a possible first-round pick on the D-Line that fits the mold of what Pittsburgh is looking for is Claude Wroten from LSU, who I think could be a good end in the 3-4 with a little more speed. I like Jesse Mahelona too, but he maybe projects better at NT, or as a DT in a 4-3? I think he might be able to lay 3-4 DE though...Any chance Dumervil falls to the bottom of the first round because of his 'tweener' size? I think they might think about drafting him as a rush LB, even though they already have Porter and Haggans - both of those guys make quite a bit of money, and I think Dumervil could be an absolute terror as an LB in a 3-4; sure there'd be an adjustment period, but the Steelers have the personnel to make that a non-factor. Will they be scared off by the ghosts of Alonzo Jackson and Nathaniel Adibi though? If Greenway falls this far, he might also be a possibility.

I think Nance might be the pick, but if he runs a sub-4.5 40 at the combine, with his size, he might not be there for the Steelers either, as he might become the #1 WR prospect, leapfrogging Jackson, Holmes, and Hagan.

There should be some FA running backs available for sure, or later rounds in the draft.Also, don't disagree with your points on DE, FS and WR, but I do wonder about the linebacker issue. We might have some depth, but it isn't much and I fear that Joey Porter is heading quickly toward a Jason Gildon type of decline. While his numbers ended up being pretty good, he didn't look very good doing it(if that makes any sense). Also, I am tired of seeing Larry Foote blow easy tackles in the middle. He filled in nicely when Kendrell Bell couldn't stay on the field, but in my opinion, has been mediocre since.

im not psyched about porter's play either, but i love james harrison and think he could be better than porter right now, plus we are developing andre frazier. on the inside i want to at least see goo in action before i write him off. also foote played better this year than last and he's at least passable. I just dont know if ILB is worth a first round pick, when we could get talents at WR or FS with more upside.

Good points. I guess if I had my choice, I'd go WR. I have wondered if any of the current CBs would make a better FS than Hope.
 
...3 backs go in the top 5... again... two years in a row?
:no: I was dead wrong last year, but that's more because I failed to look at the other (lack of) talent in the draft. This year, there's a lot better defensive players and linemen available. I really don't see 3 in the top 10 this year, let alone top 5.

The Jets have a lot more needs than RB. Houston looked fine for a few games and Martin isn't totally done yet.

The pack also have more pressing needs.

 
If GB's intentions are to go with White at 5 you can mark it down that Brett's career is over.No way is drafting White a reason for Brett to come back. They need D-line and O-line and CBs for Brett to comeback. Drafting White signals rebuilding to me.

 
Perhaps they want to trade down and are just trying to fatten up the middle a little bit? Obviously they aren't going to tell everyone who they want at this point, but this could definitely sway White a bit if he's waivering on whether or not to go pro.

That's what folks are speculating in the OTHER "Lendale White to the Packers" thread.

Or it could signal that they are trying to put some weapons back on the team.

I'd like the state for the record that I think Okkobi can handle the anchor spot for Pgh. I wouldn't mind seeing dukie Davenport or even K Barlow brought in to work with parker, assuming that Duce is given the boot like I hope he is. Then in the draft, address DE/FS/WR/OL in no particular order.
