New GM John Dorsey on his draft philosophy. Seemsto suggest we won't be going QB with the first pick.
"Dorsey credits his principles of drafting and building a team to what he learned from Wolf and Thompson, including the philosophy of acquiring value in the draft. Dorsey has said the Packers have always been committed to drafting the best available player.
"Best player available. We live it," Dorsey told the Packers’ web site before the 2011 draft. "Our job is to find the best player we can possibly find to improve our roster. If we can make our roster as competitive as we possibly can, that’s all you can do. We’ve always been taught to stay true to the board, whatever you do, and we stay true to the board."
Aside from a player’s height, weight, speed and strength, Dorsey said he looks at five intangibles in a player.
"One, are they a good guy? Two, do they work at their craft? Three, do they love football? Four, are they going to be good in the locker room? And five, would you like to have them as your neighbor?" Dorsey said.
Dorsey also told the Journal-Sentinel that he strongly considers things such as societal factors in figuring out a player."
