While I have speculated a lot on trade possibilities for the No. 9 pick, I have now reached the conclusion that the value in front of them means the Packers will use their own pick.

In a pleasant surprise B.J. Raji is still on the board and becomes the pick, solidifying the center of the defense for years to come.

The second choice, although I think they have to move up several spots to get him is the scary physical specimen Jarron Gilbert.  This second big body pick is potentially the plug in pick to team with "Ted's Salvation" and be the bookend defensive end to "Mr. broken Harrell" for a dream defensive linemen for years to come.  This is just for fun after all.

No the Packers do not trade No. 9.

The third pick is another defensive player.

No they do not take a punter.
