Trent Williams, OT - Oklahoma
Pick made by bracketismyboy:
Come draft day, Packers fans will still be haunted by two images from last season: Aaron Rodgers being devoured by Jared Allen (over and over again), and their over-hyped secondary being torched by Kurt Warner in Arizona. While GM Ted Thompson is known for picking BPA regardless of need, the stars align and Green Bay fans rejoice as he picks up one of the draft's top tackle prospects and hopefully puts an end to Aaron Rodgers' nightmares.After a sick combine (where he posted the second fastest 40 time for an offensive lineman and the top vertical jump), Williams' stock continues to rise: Sporting News' Russ Lande even has him going 2nd overall to the Lions. Williams started 25 games as a right tackle for Oklahoma and dominated before switching to the left in 2009, where his performance was shaky but improved as the season went along. He projects as a great RT with the size, burst, and upside to play on the left. Needs to work some on his technique.
Other options: Anthony Davis (T, Rutgers), Taylor Mays (S, USC).
How will he impact the 2010 Packers?
For the Packers, who re-signed both of their aging tackles during the offseason (Mark Tausher and Chad Clifton, 32 and 33), Williams will provide immediate insurance for an offensive line that struggled through injuries last year. Williams or 2009 fourth-rounder T.J. Lang may also step in to play guard, replacing underperformer Daryn Colledge.
If Williams is taken #23 by theRoss Verba #30 overall. He would also be the 1st OT taken in the first round from Oklahoma since 2005, when Jamaal Brown was taken #13 overall by the Saints., he would be the 1st OT taken in the first round by the Packers since 1997, when they selected
