We don't need a guard, or depth there. We've got a plethora of guys who can step in if our starters go down. That's the only problem I have with this selection. 

No we don't. There is a difference between 'stepping in' and not getting Rodgers killed. We have a bunch of warm bodies, no quality depth, until now.

Don't think this pick means Turner moves to tackle. Think it means what I've been saying for a while...Lane Taylor is gone, either this year or next. Guy doesn't fit what LaFleur wants on the OL.

I'd have a hard time letting Taylor go. But if it's an instant upgrade I'd be okay with it.

Might be it, just not sure I like spending a second rounder to upgrade an average guard.

Wasnt my first choice, wanted a WR there, but had heard GB was high on Jenkins.

So he can play all OL positions. 

NFL Network analysis says he played Center Left Guard and both Tackle positions

I think in terms of *need* the Packers needed a guard more than they needed a tackle.  Like "who's going to start" is up in the air for both guard spots, whereas you're at least okay for both tackle spots (and re-signing Bulaga and/or Spriggs is defensible.)

We're just used to looking at tackles because they historically draft tackles and move them to guard (Colledge, Lang, Sitton, etc.)

Lol we have multiple guys who could step in, who have starter reps, and can get us out of a game in a pinch. I don't hate this pick but personally would've liked another position, or hell. I would've preferred Erik McCoy.

And we're fine on both counts.

This is exactly how I feel.

If the OL run started earlier this guy was a first rounder. 

that's a big "if". Seems like there was better value on the board.

Our IOL collection right now is:

Linsley / Turner / Taylor / Jenkins / Madison / Patrick / McCray / Siragusa / Light

Which ones fit the new scheme?

I find it easy. Is he better than Sitton or Lang? The answer is clearly NO. We let these guys go so letting Taylor go is not difficult at all.

Linsley / Turner / Jenkins / Madison / Siragusa / De Beer / Pankey

Are probably the guys that fit into the new scheme best.

But this shoves Turner outside. Which also sucks. I get it if its a tackle I guess... ol is always underwhelming but this is so meh its bleh

it isn’t really meh,

How I see it, outside of Bak and Linsely (knock on wood), 3 spots could change in 2020. Drafting a good OL to start and take over makes a ton of sense. I’d lock him in as starting RG, let RT play itself out (Knowing Bulaga’s body, he will be out by week 5 and we will get a real look st Turner).
