The first player selected by the Packers in the 2009 NFL draft will be: Everette Brown—DE/LB Florida State

Do I really need to explain why Brown would be a great choice here?

He is an explosive defensive end with great upside. With Aaron Kampmans move to linebacker, Brown would fill his gap on the line perfectly. He's a tough player and a worker.

The second player selected by the Packers in the 2009 NFL draft will be: Phil Loadholt—OT Oklahoma

Loadholt has the great size and strength that the packers need to add to an aging line. He could also learn from some greats in Tauscher and Clifton

Will the Packers make a draft day trade involving their first round No. 9 pick? (yes/no) No.

Will the Packers third selection be an offensive or defensive player? (off/def) Offensive Player

Will the Packers use any of their draft choices (day one or two) to take a punter? (yes/no) Yes.
