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
03/11/15 - RT Bryan Bulaga re-signed with the Packers Tuesday (March 10) on a five-year deal worth $33.5 million.
03/08/15 - T Bryan Bulaga, unrestricted FA update, is considered a priority for the team to re-sign, perhaps before the start of free agency. The 2010 first-round draft pick had his best season as a pro in what essentially was his first full season as a starter, though he missed one game after suffering a knee injury in Week 1. His bounce-back campaign at right tackle came after he missed the entire 2013 season because of a torn ACL. The Packers have replacement candidates should Bulaga walk but would risk compromising the stability of one of the better offensive lines in the league.
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.
