There is some speculation that if the Pack signs Arrington that would remove the need for drafting a linebacker and allow the Packers to add a player to the offense with it's #5 pick. Makes sense...address two needs basically with one signing, albeit an expense one.
Of course, as noted in yesterday's post, most mock drafts at this point seem to apparently discount the possibility of the Pack signing Arrington and peg Ohio State's A. J. Hawk as the Pack's pick at #5.
So the natural question, then, is who fans think the Pack should go after: Arrington or Hawk?
In early returns to that very question in the online Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's poll of the day, fans favor taking Hawk by an almost 2-to-1 margin. But it's early. Here's the results so far:
Which linebacker would you rather the Packers obtain?
