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
01/16/13 - RT Bryan Bulaga expects to be ready for the start of training camp in late July. Bulaga sustained a season-ending hip fracture in the Nov. 4 win over Arizona and has started rehab work.
12/05/12 - RT Bryan Bulaga talked to reporters Wednesday for the first time since he went on season-ending injured reserve because of a hip injury sustained in the Nov. 4 win over Arizona.
Bulaga cleared the air about the nature of his injury after reports were circulated he suffered a dislocated hip similar to the injury that ended former star running back Bo Jackson's pro football career in the early 1990s.
"It was just a small fracture in the hip socket, in the joint," Bulaga said. "It wasn't a dislocation. It wasn't a Bo Jackson injury. It was a fracture. I visited the specialist (Tuesday), and everything's looking good as of right now. We're on track to a full recovery."
Bulaga added the injury was severe enough that Green Bay's medical staff "made a smart decision" to not give him an opportunity to try to return to the field before the end of the season. He won't need surgery.
While not knowing a prognosis for when he could be cleared for football activities in the offseason, Bulaga said the goal is to be ready to play in the 2013 season opener.
"I think it's definitely attainable from the way I'm feeling now and the report we got back (Tuesday)," he said. "It's just a matter of making sure we're taking care of it and progressing properly."
11/12/12 - RT Bryan Bulaga was placed on injured reserve by the Green Bay Packers with a hip injury suffered in the team's Week 9 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.
Bulaga met with a specialist over the team's bye last week and the team made the decision Monday to place him on IR.
After Bulaga left the Cardinals game, left guard T.J. Lang moved to right tackle, with Evan Dietrich-Smith taking Lang's spot.
11/12/12 - RT Bryan Bulaga was placed on season-ending injured reserve Monday. The third-year starter sustained what was reportedly a dislocated hip during Green Bay's last game before its bye, a 31-17 win over Arizona on Nov. 4. Left guard T.J. Lang is expected to replace Bulaga at right tackle with Evan Dietrich-Smith taking over at left guard.
11/08/12 - RT Bryan Bulaga was planning to meet with a specialist during the team's bye week to get a better feel for the game-ending hip injury he sustained in the first half of Sunday's win over Arizona. Left guard T.J. Lang, who slid over to replace Bulaga the rest of the game, would be the top option to start at right tackle if Bulaga has to miss more time.
