Who Would You Take From The Green Bay Packers?

It's been a while since we've started our selection segment - you know, the one where we pick which players we'd take from the opposing team? In all honesty, there weren't many I'd select from both the Lions and the Rams so I decided to put this one on hold till now. The Green Bay Packers are a team that's loaded with play makers and players the Cardinals could certainly use. It can be a young or older player, a starter or a back up, etc. You can also take their current contract status into consideration, as if we were actually signing the player. Also look at who may be leaving our team after this season. Here are some of my picks.

Aaron Rodgers, QB: It may come as a surprise at first but when you look at the overall picture, it's easy to understand. With Kurt Warner possibly retiring after this season, and the question marks that surround Matt Leinart, the Cardinals would leap at the chance for Rodgers. He's already developed into one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in just two seasons as a starter. He's smart, can move with his legs, accurate, and can throw the deep ball. He's still young and pairing him with the receivers we already have on offense would prove to be one of the deadliest offenses in the league - easy pick.

Clay Matthews, LB: The second of the long, blond-haired linebackers is only in his rookie year and has improved the linebacking group of the Packers. He has a high motor, and never seems to give up on a play regardless of the situation. Matthews would bring solid tackling, and an added blitz-er to the defense. He does need to polish some areas of his game but in the long run, he'd develop into a star.

Charles Woodson, CB: Although Woodson is 33 years of age, he's shown no signs of slowing down. Since he's been in Green Bay he's been one of the standout corners in the league and has shown why he was so touted coming out of college. The best way to describe Woodson, is that he's a play maker. He's a shutdown corner, a solid tackler, and has a knack for getting to the ball. He and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie would be a formidable tandem for the Cardinals defense.

Other picks to consider:Mark Tauscher, T,  B.J. Raji, DT,  A.J. Hawk, LB

Obviously we'll get to know these players and others the next two weeks since we should be meeting the Packers this week and in the first round of the playoffs. Those are just my picks - who would you take from the Packers? Who did I miss?
