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
10/08/15 - RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) went through the team's practice in pads Thursday in limited fashion for the second straight day. Bulaga was involved in the individual drills before the rest of the indoor practice was closed to the media. Speaking before practice, head coach Mike McCarthy considered Bulaga's participation in what is typically the team's most extensive practice of the week to be an important step in his return to the field this week after having surgery for a torn meniscus in his left knee after Week 1. Bulaga is hopeful about playing and returning to the starting lineup Sunday, when the 4-0 Packers host the St. Louis Rams.
10/07/15 - RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) practiced Wednesday for the first time since he sustained tears of the MCL and meniscus in his left knee in the season-opening win at the Chicago Bears on Sept. 13. After initial speculation was Bulaga would be out four to six weeks after having surgery for the meniscus, the veteran is eyeing a return to action Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. "Believe me, if I feel ready, I'm going to go," Bulaga said after getting limited work in the Packers' non-padded practice Wednesday. "I'm not really one to hold back. If I feel ready to play, I'm going to do my best during the week to show the coaches that I'm ready and play. But, it's going to be a day-by-day deal." Don Barclay has been up-and-down as Bulaga's replacement in the starting lineup the last three games.
09/21/15 - RT Bryan Bulaga didn't play the 27-17 victory over visiting Seattle on Sunday night and is expected to be sidelined for up to six weeks. The veteran starter suffered an injury to his left knee in practice Thursday. Subsequent reports indicated Bulaga sustained a sprained MCL and a torn meniscus, the latter of which resulted in surgery. Don Barclay started in place of Bulaga against the Seahawks.
09/18/15 - RT Bryan Bulaga will not play for the Packers on Sunday night against the Seahawks after suffering a knee injury in practice.
Bulaga departed Thursday's practice after hurting his left knee. The team initially feared that Bulaga had torn his ACL, but the six-year veteran was later diagnosed with a strained MCL.
09/17/15 - RT Bryan Bulaga dropped out of practice Thursday with an injury to his left knee. The extent of the injury wasn't known after practice, but the timing of Bulaga's setback could impact his availability for Green Bay's home opener against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night. Left guard Josh Sitton indicated Bulaga sustained the injury during position drills in the early part of practice. The veteran starter missed the entire 2013 season because of a torn ACL in his left knee. Bulaga reinjured the knee in the Packers' season-opening loss at Seattle last September, an injury that turned out to be a sprained MCL that kept him out only one game. Fourth-year pro Don Barclay, who took over for Bulaga at right tackle in 2013, worked at the spot after Bulaga left practice Thursday.
