Jaguars Take Eugene Monroe, GB on the clock

The Jaguars stand pat at #8 and get a talent in Eugene Monroe that deserved consideration much eariler. The free agent adidtion of Tra Thomas made this more of a value selection for the Jaguars, than addressing a huge need, but the Jags are better now.

The Green Bay Packers are now on the clock and are presented with an interesting dilemma.

Michael Crabtree is a terrific talent, but there may not be a stronger position for the Packers than wide receiver. They'd love to get their nose guard here with BJ Raji. The team also wants an offensive tackle and Michael Oher is as talented as any of the other 3 OTs that were selected ahead of him.

The options:

A. Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech
B. BJ Raji, NG, Boston College
C. Michael Oher, OT, Mississippi
D. Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas

Ultimately, to win with the 3-4 defense, the Packers need to acquire a nose guard. Expect Raji to be the pick.
