Round 1, Pick 30 - Traded to Jets

We plan on giving you brief analysis on every pick the Packers make in the 08 version of the draft (maybe we should have advertised that a little). Like most of you, I've been waiting three and a half hours to see who the Packers would take, although I have to admit there was a pretty good nap inbetween picks 10 -25. But I woke up in time to see the with the 30th pick of the NFL Draft, the Packers select.... well, no one. They've traded the pick to the Jets for the 36th pick, and they gained a 4th round pick at 113. The Jets took Purdue TE Dustin Keller with the pick.

I don't mind moving down, and I'm starting to think the Packers are going to go for either Chad Henne or Brian Brohm. They may be able to get either one of those guys at pick 36. I really don't see two teams from the Giants, Dolphins, Rams, Redskins, or Chiefs taking a quarterback. One of them could, but two of them won't. The Pack will be able to get their guy and gain a pick in the process. That is, if they are going quarterback.

The first round of the draft is now over, taking just 3 1/2 hours, quickest since 1990. I love quick draft, and I have not been disappointed with the NFL Network. How have things been at ESPN? One other note here, Radio City Music Hall played the "Da Da Da, Da Da Da Da, Go Pack Go!" theme. That was awesome, too. We'll be back in four picks.
