Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga -- A no-brainer of a top pick when the highly regarded left tackle fell to the Packers late in the first round. Bulaga excelled as a three-year starter at Iowa. He is the heir apparent to the aging Chad Clifton at left tackle, perhaps sooner than later.
A closer look at the Packers' picks: Round 1/23 -- Bryan Bulaga, OT, 6-5, 314, Iowa: The first offensive lineman taken by the Packers in the first round since Iowa's Ross Verba in 1997. Verba started at left tackle as a rookie, but Bulaga might have to play the waiting game behind Chad Clifton for a season. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout *Bryan Bulaga News
12/22/14 - RT Bryan Bulaga made his customary start Sunday, a week after he was knocked out of Green Bay's loss at the Buffalo Bills because of a concussion. Bulaga didn't practice most of last week as he went through the required testing protocol, but he was elevated from questionable to probable on the injury report Saturday.
12/18/14 - RT Bryan Bulaga continues to go through the league-mandated testing protocol after he sustained a concussion late in Green Bay's loss at Buffalo on Sunday. Bulaga made an appearance at practice Thursday, which might be encouraging for his availability for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay. "He's making progress, so doing good," head coach Mike McCarthy said about the veteran starter's status Thursday. "Yeah, when they let him out of the building (Lambeau Field) to go down to the Hutson Center (to attend practice), that's a good thing."
12/17/14 - RT Bryan Bulaga continues to go through the league-mandated concussion protocol and didn't practice Wednesday. The veteran starter left the Packers' 21-13 loss at Buffalo on Sunday early in the fourth quarter with symptoms of a concussion after taking a hard hit on an open-field block on a Bills interception return. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Bulaga is making progress. Bulaga's status for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay won't be known until later in the week. Versatile second-year lineman JC Tretter, who relieved Bulaga last weekend, is a candidate to make the start at right tackle if a replacement is needed against the Buccaneers.
12/15/14 - RT Bryan Bulaga was knocked out of Sunday's loss at Buffalo with concussion symptoms when he took a hard open-field block from defensive end Jerry Hughes on a Bills interception return early in the fourth quarter. JC Tretter filled in at right tackle the rest of the game and allowed a strip-sack by defensive end Mario Williams that resulted in a clinching safety for Buffalo with less than 2 minutes left in its 21-13 win. Head coach Mike McCarthy didn't have an update on Bulaga's status Monday, but offensive coordinator Tom Clements expressed optimism the veteran lineman would be OK to play Sunday at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
09/25/14 - RT Bryan Bulaga has practiced in full the last two days and doesn't seem to have sustained any setbacks after holding up at his customary starting spot for the entire game in the loss at Detroit last Sunday. Bulaga had missed the previous game because of a sprained MCL in his left knee. He should be good again for Sunday's road matchup with the Bears.
