I'm gonna go with just guys I saw live. Maybe not the very best, but a pretty solid group.
Archie Griffin
Nolan Cromwell
Drew Brees
Charles Woodson
Lorenzo White

The best Badgers I've seen live. (I could easily add another dozen worthy of being among this group.)
Ron Dayne
Jonathan Taylor
Troy Vincent
Al Toon
JJ Watt
Great call on Lorenzo. Caught him live back at MSU. Was an amazing back.

Jim Taylor j/k No am not that old lol.

A lot of great names here. As for myself way too many to narrow it down. Got involved with Mocks in late 80's and then my own tape watching and consulting and ghost writing evals with ppl like Rob Rang around late 90's so have seen too many players to nail it to just 10.

Btw Tebow didn't fit NFL but was a great college QB.

I'm still upset from the days before Wolf when we passed on Sanders and then a whole list of other players. Just hoping we aren't returning back to those days.

Well Deion said he would never come to GB and Barry they said at the time you need a OL to run behind before you can get the RB. Well Barry proved them wrong he never needed a OL.

But some have said they get Sanders in 89. What happens if he does enough in in his first years that Packers record is better then it was and then the team does not fire the GM so Wolf does not get hired and he does not hire Holmgren and trade for Favre?

Just to piss off Deion, I would draft him, let him sit out a year, re-enter draft, tank the season to get the #1 pick, and then pick Deion again.

The current comparison would be the equivalent of trading today for Drew Brees.
Once a great player, but not so much anymore.
yep and when you panic you overpay....its one reason I just dont see Rodgers having the value some think he has. Unless you are convinced he is the missing piece dont make a play for him

Packers were suckers in Hadl trade. Originally they were going to trade for Archie Manning with the same offer I heard but right before the trade happened NOLA QB got hurt so they trade got called off but the NOLA GM called up LA said the Packers are desperate for a QB so LA calls GB and GB being idiots offers the same package for a washed up Hadl.
