RB Isaiah Pead
Pick No. 123: RB Isaiah Pead, Cincinnati
Weight: 195 pounds
Running back may not be the Packers' biggest need, but Ted Thompson is one of the best at adding the best available player regardless of position.
Of the returning backs, Ryan Grant may not return. James Starks seems like a situational back. Brandon Saine is an ideal third-down back, and Alex Green is coming off of a nasty knee injury that ended with a trip to the injured reserve list.
Pead has shown the ability to be a third-down back.
Pick No. 132: Safety George Iloka, Boise State
Weight: 210 pounds
With the recent comments made by Mike McCarthy, if Nick Collins is even 95 percent ready to return after his spinal fusion surgery, he may not allow Collins to play. I fully agree with McCarthy that he wouldn't put Collins' life on the line for the sake of the game.
Therefore, I have the Packers selecting safety George Iloka. At 6'3'', Iloka is a giant of a safety who could be a force in the Packers secondary.
Pick No. 133: Center Mike Brewster, Ohio State
Weight: 295 pounds
With the Packers losing Pro Bowl center Scott Wells to the St. Louis Rams, Ted Thompson signed 13-year veteran center Jeff Saturday, a huge pickup in my mind. Saturday will be an excellent stop- gap for the Packers until they groom the center of the future.
That center is Mike Brewster. Listed at 293 pounds, he may not be the biggest center in the league, but solid weight programs in the NFL should get Brewster bulked up and ready to take over after Saturday retires.
